Air Conditioning Problem

My 2000 XJ has an odd problem with the AC, it makes an awful squeal that goes away after a few minutes. I know it has something to do the AC cause it only happens when the Jeep is ran with AC, I finally got it on video so please watch it to get an idea.

Mine did the same thing today right after start up, just not quite as bad. I knew it was the belt slipping, so I shut off the air and it quit. I drove it about a mile then started the air again and no problem.

I am thinking that it is not the A/C but the alternator having a hard time with the load of running the a/c and recharging the battery after start up. My reasoning behind this is that there was no issue after it ran for a minute or 2.
