For some reason, I can't view your video however, it's probably just water vapour due to comdensation in the exhaust. More noticable at lower ambient temperatures and on a cold start.

Also, under certain conditions on start up the fueling is adjusted to heat the cats up more quickly to reduce emissions and as a consequence you get more vapour out of the exhaust. The engine sounds a little different too.

If it was a turbo issue, it would probably be blue smoke. Managed to view the video and it doesn't look like anything to worry about to me. As I say, under certain conditions you can see water vapour or white smoke when it's running richer after a cold start.

If you are still worrying about it or have other symptoms have it checked out.
