Can't set up RE, the video doesn't help.

The video provided shows steps to set up with a Mate 3, not a Mate 3s. The latest firmware available for the Mate 3s is 001.004.004.

On the outback site, in set up for optics RE, it asks for my Mate's Mac address. I enter it, it says it can't find it. I know the router I am using has internet access. What set up steps am I missing? Is there a more up to date, comprehensive tutorial or instructions?

I can't think there's a significant difference between M3 and M3s when it comes to setting up OpticsRE.

Maybe the registration process is getting caught up in the migration. It might be worth posting a comment in the Known Issues thread that's active now.
