Do I have a clutch problem or tranny issue?

Hello all,
I have some ugly noise that intermittently comes from my truck. I have linked a youtube video:

It seems to happen as I am releasing the clutch. But, it stops when the clutch is engaged and I am fully moving forward. It also seems to stop when I then press the clutch down all the way.

The other issue is that something has been getting stuck in there. When I start the truck in neutral, it might not be willing to go in gear. So, I then have to shut the truck off, put it in gear and start it. The truck will then shutter just a touch, like it wants to move, and then it releases and I can drive just fine.

The clutch is a South Bend Con O and was put in 10+ years ago, but has only about 50k on it. I am only driving the truck about 2-3k miles per year for the last few years. Any ideas how to diagnose from the video? Thanks.
