Odds are the camera wasn't picking up sounds in airless space, so much as the microphone was picking up vibrations transmitted through the materials it was mounted to. It was the solid materials that were creating and transmitting the 'noise' not air.
Rather like when you go to the dentist to have a filling, and the drill vibrations are transmitted through your jaw to your ear.

Maybe it's because they are traveling at 17,000 mph and that is what it sounds like when you move that fast in space....in the emptyness in space with no other noises. kind of creepy.

I think it is inside - notice the title of that segment is "SRB Left Intertank" and at the very when it's settling in to the ocean it appears to be looking through a porthole. Also, the SRB's are jettisoned at an altitude of 29 miles where there is atmosphere.
