I could not pick up anything unusual from your video.

It is not unusual to hear a slight thumping and feel a slight shake when the engine first turns over to start......in any model at any age.
Of course, as a vehicle gets older some noises will get louder through normal wear.

If this really concerns you, have an experienced shop take a look at it.

How long have you had this car ?
Is it your first hybrid ??

You do check the oil level frequently, right ??
