It's never a problem helping people who appreciate the help. Good of you to follow up with results and updates instead of leaving it hanging like some people do once it's fixed.

Hey, glad to hear you've narrowed it down to just a component or two. At least you're in the ball park now. You'll have it solved in no time. You may want to check the pulleys and tensioners too.

LOL, I don't mean take it for a drive. Should be ok to run it for 20-30 seconds from cold. That's long enough to see if the sound is still there or not.

That sounds like a belt/bearing/tensioner/pulley. It's hard to tell in the video but did the sound vary with RPM? You might want to run it without the alternator belt to see if it's one of those...
