Grinding & rattle noise w / video. Advice & opinions?

Okay, I have a '98 with 124K and automatic trans (I know ). It has been serviced and repaired quite extensively since I bought it in Dec of '09. It would take up a lot of space to list it all. Regardless, I have been noticing a strange new noise for the past two months. In the last week the noise has increased by at least 200%. The sound is constant. Whether in gear, park, idle, or driving it is almost constantly there. It sounds like a bearing going out to me. It is not a knock by any means. One of my older brothers and I noticed that the noise changes quite a bit once the A/C is engaged. We thought maybe it is the A/C clutch, compressor, and or related bearings. Here's a clip of it. First 5 sec are with A/C off, next 5 sec with it on. The very end of the video is with the A/C turned on and off several times in rapid succession. Here is the video. Tell me what you guys think.
