I think I see a big of a butt-wink when you squat, which I believe indications tight hamstrings.
Deadlifts look like they use a lot more back at the beginning than legs.
Some of the hang cleans look like they are being bounced off the thighs, rather than shrugged up.
Also, keep the good posture in the back. Looked like it rounded a bit when you come out of the squat.

Do you ever lift straight off the floor?
--- just started to
I tend to bank the bar off my thighs on a hang clean, but find it easier to jump it up to full extension, keeping the bar close to my body, when I lift straight from the floor.

---i will be making a new vid shortly, that hopefully will show improved form, but w/o access to a coach, its hard

I hope this is helpful and doesn't come across as overly critical. I can be overly enthusiastic about o lift training and technique. Good luck!
--please feel free, if i didnt want advice, i would not have posted it, ... i feel i know a good amount about PL and strongman, but nothing of OLY
