Car making a squealing sound when starting!

For a little while now when i start my car cold or hot it makes a loud but short squealing noise! Probably does it 8/10 times that i start the car! Any idea what it could be? Thanks in advance for any input provided!

Have checked belts... My only good guess is some part of the ignition/starter! Sounds just like holding a key on start!

Next time you're about to start the car have someone do it for you and take a vid under the hood.. Kinda vague and hard to figure out what is actually wrong without seeing or hearing the problem. If it's not the belts it could be the starter. How many miles you have on it?? If it's over 60k I hope you've changed the timing belt because it could be your tensioner. Best of luck!!

Spray silicon lube on all the belt tensioners and the belt itself and see if it stops....
