Yes.

4 to 7 thou is the R&P backlash setting.

Might be best to download a workshop manual.

Play at the pinion flange is not just backlash in the pinion/ring gear. It is a combination of backlash from all of the components. 1" sound normal.

Most likely a u-joint.

That video is just showing pinion/ring gear backlash. In the truck you see the combination of pinion, diff spider gears, 4 splined joints and the two CVs. It adds up and 1" at the outside the pinion is within a range of normallity.
