I sounds to me like one of the bearing on one of the accessories are on it's way out, There is really no way to tell by the video. Many items have bearing that go, for example, Waterpump, Air condition, power steering, alternator, best bet is to have an audi mechanic or someone who KNOWs german cars to have it checked out, Audi's are very well engineered and really needs a person who knows what they are doing.
