Clutch Problems

My car has recently had a couple of episodes where the clutch pedal all of a sudden locks up and I can barely push in the clutch far enough to change gears. I have no clue why it's doing this but it's getting really annoying and unsafe. The video below is the noise that it makes whenever I push in the clutch pedal.

If anyone has any insight into this please let me know ASAP. I drive close to 500 miles a week for work and having my car not running is not an option.

My only guess is the throw-out bearing. There is a rumble to the clutch pedal when pressing it but it's not terrible.

No I haven't, though I did think that could be part of the problem as well. It feels like one of the cylinders locks up with fluid or something. Or maybe there's air in the system.

What would I be looking for?
Seriously?? :AF:

Anyone know what it costs at a shop to replace?

Should I go OEM or aftermarket? Don't have a ton of money to spend but maybe I can find a good deal on a used one.
Thanks for the insight guys!! :-D

I'm still deciding whether or not to take it to a shop or do the swap myself. There's also the fact that I need a new 6th gear synchro and was going to have the shop replace that while it was all apart.
