someone gave me that tip and it's helped me out a lot. it kept my knees from drifting too far in front if my feet. there's no need to take multiple steps back either. just take one step back with each foot into your stance. that's my .02, I'm still trying to master it myself

No expert but this is from Rippetoe. Depending on how wide you are standing, you can lean forward SLIGHTLY. The reasoning for this is you will stretch your hamstring so it is easier to get out of the hole. I used to squat ATG but now I take a wide powerlifting stance and dip below parallel. At the bottom, hamstrings coiled and I drive out.
Also, another tip that worked wonders for me is the cue "spread the floor". Do this from the moment you plant your feet...try and "push" your feet away from each other. If you do it (you can try it without a bar to get the feeling), your outer hips should feel tight. If you do this coming out of the hole, you will engage your glutes alot more. Should feel really powerful coming out. The entire motion I repeat "spread the floor, knees out" in my head to cue myself.
Doesn't look like your knees buckle which is good. Only other thing is start the squat by pushing your hips back just a bit more like in the video sean posted.
These are just tips that helped me. It still looks like a solid squat!

looks good to me, maybe a better belt. but other then that its good.
1 way to get more reps out is not to stop in between each rep, only stop when you need to rest and try to squeeze another rep out.

And yeah I usually don't stop on higher reps but heavy triples fatigue me a lot more. I'll try to work on my bar speed
