Is it cold? I've experienced similar problems when it was extremely cold, in my 1.6TDI VW. Does it help if you press the throttle after you start the car? Sounds like cylinders misfiring to me. You should definitely take it to the dealer.
Btw, my guesses are just noob guesses. I could be totally wrong. Wait till someone more experienced chimes in.

I had the same issue

i am second owner of a 2011 A1, on mid July the car didn't start anymore, I scanned it and saw sensor issues related to the transmission unit.
Took it to the dealer and they said the issue was the complete mechatronic unit... OK, I payed.... around U$1600

Not video available, but I'm thinking in your problem, maybe the sound you describe is from chain tensioner (common failure in A1).

Please upload again your video.
