I just looked at the source and they seem to be caching the video placeholder images already.

Code:
<img 
     class="detail__media__placeholder" 
     src="//images.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=https%3A%2F%2Fi1.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2F6q68UFUNKGA%2Fmqdefault.jpg&amp;f=1">


And then iframing with no cookie if you watch on DDG.

Code:
<iframe 
    class="detail__media__vid" 
    src="https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/6q68UFUNKGA?wmode=transparent&amp;iv_load_policy=3&amp;autoplay=1&amp;html5=1"
    frameborder="0" 
    scrolling="no" 
    allowfullscreen="" 
    webkitallowfullscreen="" 
    mozallowfullscreen="">
</iframe>


So I wonder if it would be possible to modify the URL so it hits DDG's server, then forwards the real URL to youtube through the VPN.

Anyway, if anyone knows how to make this work, do share. :)
