Water Heater Pilot Light -- MP4 -- 534KB

The burner went out - possilby due to high winds, don't know for sure. Anyway, after I lit the pilot light, the burner lit and then started cycling high and low flame with a bout a 2 second cycle time. After a few minutes the cycling stopped and was burning steadily. Only thing that I wonder about now is why the flame is so yellow. The heater was only off for maybe 6 hours today.
I only had a cell phone camera with me and recorded this very short video of the flame -- in case maybe that is enough to tell whether it's a safe flame or needs a pro to come take a look at it.
I couldn't find any sites where I could upload an MP4 file for free, so i posted at this binary website using the same subject as this posting.

All is well again. It's now about 6 hours after lighting it. When the burner is off, the pilot is a normal shade of blue with no yellow. When burner comes on, it's an even yellow, no flare up or noises other than normal.
Will post a video of the flame is someone can tell me a site where I can post without signing up with personal info.
