Remove belt, spin / wobble pulley by hand?

Sounds a bit like the water pump. Hard to tell from the video. Although, I've seen cars with similar symptoms and it was because they used the wrong length hardware when they installed their WP pulley and the longer bolts were making contact with the pump housing...

Automotive stethoscope is probably the quickest way to figure this one out. Or simply pop the belt off and start the car for 30 seconds or so.
