Lack of fluid, bad pump, or a leak usually makes Power Steering systems make noise.

And why dont you just replace your Oil Filter then? Most oil filters come with new seals when you buy them

Now that the video is actually showing up for me. I would say your steering rack is lacking in lubercation

I'd say stick it up onto a jack and do it. Seems like as loud as it is you would have noticed a problem with your steering a long time ago. Does the steering wheel shutter at all when you turn? That noise sounds more like strut mounts or tierod ends. Maybe the lower lateral balljoint. I'm leaning more to suspension components.
