My car has 91000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello there, From the video it is tough to determine what noise you have with your 2005 Dodge Ram. It appears to be a knocking or thumping sound. If the noise is in the engine bay than it has a few possibilities such as low oil, top end engine noise, alternator, starter, flywheel or a pulley. If the noise is only heard from the inside of the vehicle than it could be coming from the blower motor, ac door actuator, or a loose panel. A qualified Technician such as one from YourMechanic will be able to definitively diagnose the noise (with an in person inspection) and make any repairs required.
