Some applications, particularly ones that do streaming video, set the
DiffServ codepoint to some AFxy value by default. ...and if you have
QoS knobs turned on in your network gear, like simply 'mls qos' as on
the Cisco platforms as I've seen, you also get some basic handling of
those marked packets also. In addition to putting EF marked packets
in a priority queue, AFxy marked packets are probably going into a
specific WRED queue and associated with a specific drop threshold.

I'm not exactly sure what you're asking here. If the question is,
can the routers allocate capacity, queueing behavior or something
else to different classes of traffic based on DiffServ codepoints
found in IPTV traffic versus other best effort traffic, then the
answer is yes. If that was not your question, then please restate
and I'll try again.

Yes if 'mls qos' is set. For recent native IOS on a 6509 for example,
'show queueing interface g5/1'
It will tell your current queuing configuration and what queues
marked packets will be put in if QoS is enabled.
