Help Indentify this engine noise Video

Over the last week my engine has started to develop a growling noise from the front of the engine. Sounds like a bad bearing or pulley. I can not identify where exactly it is coming from or what is causing it.

Sounds like one of the idler pulleys. Take the belt off an turn everything by hand. you should be able to feel a bad bearing.
