High pitched squeal noise with engine RPM. (Transmission?)

Evening,

What's this squealing noise and how can I mitigate it/where is it coming from?

(Not the scraping noise, that's the exhaust having a leak + missing straps. - unless that's a different issue causing it? Advice?)

I'm a bit stumped on it right now (timing belt??) thanks guys.

Hard to tell from the clip to be honest.  Could be transmission pump whine if you're low on fluid.

Ooo, that's a good one, I'll check that when I get a chance.

The trans oil is all good, pristine colour and plenty, possibly a bit too much, but I don't think that's the issue. I have ordered new exhaust hangers, I'll see if that fixes the issue with it.
