YouTube: Yes we have IPv6 Support
After much speculation last week, YouTube has confirmed that it now supports IPv6.
Calling it a win for openness and security, in a blog post YouTube confirmed that it now supports IPv6. As noted on Network World, users will need an IPv6 connection from their ISPs.
"In his blog post, Colitti said support of IPv6 was necessary to allow more people and devices to attach directly to the Internet.
"IPv6 is 'a win for openness and new applications because any device can connect to any other device on the Internet,' Colitti wrote. 'It's even a win for security, because it's harder for hackers to find your computer and attack it.'"
