From the video it sounds like a rod bearing, it won't last long at those RPM's better get it fixed now while you still have an engine to fix, if it lets go it's bye bye engine block.

you can unbolt valve covers and run it and see what's happening ,some oil will splash a little though .run heaver oil weight to fill this gap for now if a rod bearing!. Needs a cushion of oil, or will hammer crank out of round

You will need to remove the engine to do it right the crankshaft will need to be checked for damage due to the rod noise. You might try pricing a crank kit, that will include a reground crankshaft and the bearings to match.
