in my video the noise i don't understand starts around 1:40. Sorta like scraping a spoon around a metal bowl in a circular motion really fast

It almost sounds like the rotor is rubbing on something.

Worst case, drain the oil. Check the oil for metal debris, then cut the filter open to do the same.

starter clutch bolts (there are 3) backing out?

the starter clutch springs have been known to fragment, the rollers flopping around?

possibilities you may want to explore...flywheel puller required to remove and examine.
