I cannot find out where the leak is coming from, it seems to be above the transmission pan just in front of the starter, but it only leaks when running.
Do you

There are a number of things that can be leaking from that area but the most likely cause of this would be a speed sensor.

So, I am attaching the info that shows the views of this side of the unit so that you can have a better idea what is up there.

What I would suggest is we use oil dye to trace the leak. If you haven't done it in a while, I would service the unit and when you put new fluid in it, add a little bottle of oil dye and then run the vehicle. Once you see the leak you will be able to use a light to illuminate the dye and see just where it is coming from. You may need to use a mirror to see on top of the pan.

Take a look at the diagrams below and let me know what questions you have. I put a red arrow where the starter is so that it will help orient you.
