Default Weird noise after work done

Hi alll need input about this weird noise after I changed out water pump and ALL the belts. The only awkward thing that happens is after start up one of the bellts squeels for a hot second and then nothing. After a few minutes it starts to make weird noise, especially at idle. I'm thinking loose belt(s) or pully. Lmk what you all think it is. I would probably take it to a mechanic b/c I don't have my tools here I left them back East. Here's a link to quick video

Don't know what car you have, but the pic looks like mine. When you replaced the wp you had to remove the timing belt. Check out the sticky on the incorrect tensioner install, that may answer the "weird noise" part. Happened to a few of us, easy to miss.
The other squeal thing, I'd check the ac compressor belt tension, 90 degree twist at the longest span ... or push on it about 1/2".

It's a 96 LX CE1 f22b2. I'll need a local mechanic to fix that b/c all tools are on the east coast or I would do it. But thanks for your input. I figured it was a belt tension issue but just needed feedback. Thanks again.
