I expect it would work (ignoring the obvious reasons this is likely not to
lead to bliss) - but not for the reasons expected. I get a AAAA back from, but the actual video stream (which I am largely guessing
is the "big" content I see in iftop coming from yahoo's CDN) comes over v4.
At least it is better than vimeo's, A-only.
