With nothing else to go on, the two most common causes of a whine are an engine pulley driven by the serpentine belt, and a noisy wheel bearing. You can remove the belt to see if the noise stops. You should be able to hear it at least a little when you poke your head under the hood while the engine is running.

A noisy front wheel bearing will sound like the buzz of an airplane engine. In some instances the noise will change when you turn slightly to one side, as in when changing lanes. Typically the noise decreases when you turn toward the noisy bearing because some of the vehicle's weight transfers off of it to the other side. It is also real common for the noise to transfer to the other side, and what you are certain is coming from the driver's side can actually be coming from the passenger side.

My computer, along with all its other design flaws, does not play sound from the internet, so I can't listen to your video. We do better with written explanations and observations anyway.
