I've heard this a few times and seen the animal making it, but it's the first time I've caught it on video or sound recording.

ha ha, nope.
When I lived in York Region, I often heard foxes similar to the ones in the video link you provided, particularly the vixen scream. With all of the coyotes in my current area, we don't have many foxes left.
I didn't hear or see the animal in my video until I started spending time further north, but now I've seen and heard a variety of calls from them many times over the last twenty five years. They used to be quite uncommon, but there seems to be lots around lately.

The young racoons outside my building sound the very same.

Fisher.
We've had a few problems around here with fishers killing cats and there's at least one in this stretch of woods that occasionally follows me and screeches. The first time I saw and heard one while bushwacking around Dunchurch many years ago, I was a little freaked out because I had never heard the weird sounds coming from it and had never heard of a fisher. I followed it for a km though the bush while it leapt through the treetops, screeching the entire way.

I've seen that fisher video before, and it's definitely one of the sounds they make and similar to this one.

The first time I saw one, as described above, it was making a very unusual sound, not like the ones in either video and I would never be able to describe it. At the time, the two friends with me joked about the alien that was following us, and the the first two Predator movies were popular at the time so that certainly didn't make it any less eerie!
