The Good:
-Your low back is not rounding.
-Your knees appear to track over your toes (they should not flare out or buckle in)
-You appear to have a good deal of power (never looks like you actually struggle ... also could be a bad thing)


The Bad
By most average joe muscle head's standards that would be a fine squat.... however ... I believe in full range of motion for all exercises. Most qualify a full depth squat by saying the top of your hip must be below the level of your knee (or at least parallel with). You are 2-3" above parallel by the looks of the video.
-You could stand to open up your stance (this might also help you get a bit deeper). Feet at shoulder width or slightly wider.
-You could stand to slow down your warm up reps
-You need to do more warm up sets

Man that is good strength. However, I have to go with the others. Go parallel, I know it is harder to do with legs pretty much together. Widen your stance. Going that extra little bit will bring your leg size and strength up as well.
