I've had the exact same noise as shown in the video posted in this thread.

I've watched the video showing how to grease it, but I still have 2 questions -

1. Is lack of grease the root cause of such noise? Are we very sure that it is not the belt getting excessively worn off?
2. Is it going to affect the service life of the trainer if I decide to live with the noise?

You can leave with it, the belt won't be damaged if you don't add grease.
But I cannot be completely sure that the noise you hear is due to this (usually it is so, but I cannot assure it).
So, my suggestion is to add some grease - then, if the noise disappear, you will be 100% sure that the belt is ok ;)

You mean strap = belt? I suspect that my recent noise issues are related to moisture in the belt/brake/magnet whatever system, as it is so irreguler. I am still looking into it....
