Default Help Diagnosing High Pitched Squeaking Coming from Wheel/Brakes (video included)

My 2000 Subaru Impreza 2.5RS has a high pitched squeak/squeal coming from the driver side wheel/brake area.

The sound comes and goes randomly and usually doesn't "start" till after I've been driving more than 20-30 minutes. Its very intermittent and only makes the noise when cruising or accelerating, never when braking. Like I said it's not continuous either, it might squeak for 15 seconds, then be good for 5 minutes, then start up for a minute, then be silent, so I'm really not sure what it is.

I'm not sure if its the brakes, wheel bearings, random suspension components, etc...

Either way here's a quick vid I shot this morning of the sound driving 30-40mph.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

The first thing you should have done is take the wheel off and look.

Most likely it's the brakes.
Look for thin pads, rubbing dust shield, rubbing rotor.

If the brakes are good then it's the bearing.

Looking at it yourself should have been the first move though
