YouTube CDN down?

Watching in dev tools, the CDN is returning the dreaded HTTP header 204 (No
Content), even though the entire video is buffering.

This reminds me of an outage a while back that only affected IPv6.

I've confirmed with other users, and YouTube is dead to us from these
- AS22645 (Texas Gigapop) - v4/v6
- AS19108 (Suddenlink) - v4
- AS40285 (Northland Cable) - v4/v6
- AS40244 (TurnKey) - v4/v6

It does seem to be regional.  People in SC/NC who are presumably hitting
the Charleston DC are unaffected.
