Oil Leak from Top Left Rear of Engine

I need someone more versed with this engine than I am. What could be causing an oil leak that's located near the top left rear portion (when looking from the front)?

When I crawl under to try and trace it, I can see the leak coming down to the left and above the crank pulley... Almost on the "corner" of the block if that makes sense. It's hard to see above all that with the pulleys and belt in the way, but it's something up there. I replaced the valve cover gasket already and it didn't solve the issue.

Any ideas?

Update: stuck my camera back there and it seems the leak is coming from some sensor seal? Watch the video and tell me what you guys think. You can see the oil leaking down the back of the block and at 0:29-0:30 I pause on it. It's a cylindrical looking sensor (or what looks like a sensor). It seems the leak is coming from there. Any one know what that part is?
