Squat stance is definitely still too wide. Look at the bottom position - see how your feet are way outside your hips? You're twisting the knee and you won't be able to sit all the way into a full depth position.

Not a great angle for the snatch, but keep your weight a bit farther back over your feet in the pull and even open the hips slightly more at the top.

Bruising is either from allowing the bar to stay too far away from you before it contacts you when finishing the extension, or can be from it contacting with the hips still partially closed. Doing everything right, you still will do it occasionally.
