Traffic Shaping for YouTube, Netflix and Vimeo

  • Hey pfsense friends,

    I am really new at this.  I would like to prioritise Youtube, Netflix and Vimeo streeming services.

    Do you know any good tutorials for this?


  • I would highly recommend just enabling FairQ on you WAN(upload) and LAN(download) interfaces, and check the "codel active queue" box in the default queue. Set your bandwidths to 80%-90% of your actual bandwidth.

    If that isn't good enough, then go further down the infinite rabbit hole of QoS.

    When pfSense 2.4.4 comes out, look into just using fq_Codel limiter. The above tries to simulate fq_Codel.
