    Create a HFSC parent queue with ~48Mbit as the Bandwidth. Then create a default queue, a HTTP queue, and a netflix/twitch/etc queue with the appropriate linkshare m2 values.

    Then create corresponding floating "Match" firewall rules that will assign the HTTP, netflix, etc traffic into the proper queues you created.

    This simple setup should share bandwidth appropriately.
