car whining sound during driving

hey scottie, i'm mark from philippines, i'm a car newbie, just bought a second hand car that is a hyundai excel 1994 model, i had this problem and up to now it's not yet fixed, everytime i run the car it keeps on making a whining sound, i tried revving the engine during neutral but the sound wasnt present, so im puzzled, could it be a bad transmission or a severe transmission problem?

please help me.

thank you so much.

could it be a drive shaft bearing or universal joint making the whining noise?

thank you for the reply. i just watched your video, i think it's not on the bearing, i tried to jack up the car and listened for whining while setting it to run on 1st to 5th gear, the whining is there specially every gear shifts i make after releasing the clutch pedal and revving up the engine. could it be a bearing on gears or something?
i even tried it to run on free wheeling (revving up and holding the clutch) the whining noise seem to appear everytime i change gear or when i reached the 5th gear or running the car at 50mph. i also checked the bearing on both front wheels, they're seem to be ok and no noise heard when turnng them. i can hear the noise during gear shifts and revving up.

many things can whine, but often they are bearings. To check where the noise comes from, do this video test https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqh1oH8mEqY
