Question Help! Transmission noise?

In the video above you can hear a whining noise. I think it is coming from the transmission. Does anyone know exactly what is causing it? The noise goes away once the engine is warm.

I have had transmission issues since I bought the car a few months back. When cold, it will rev high and shift late from 1-2 and 2-3. It will slam or lunge into 1st, and barely engages reverse (warm or cold).

Now for the worst issue... A couple of times the car did not want to stop, and kept pulling forward, as if the TC was locked up. I had to put it in neutral to stop. One day I may bump someone at a light.

Just changed the trans. fluid (Toyota Type IV) and the filter. There was some very fine black/grey dust in the transmission pan.
