Traffic Shaping for YouTube



  • Hi all,
    I m new here and I hope u all could help me with this.
    I m trying to limit the bandwitch for video/music streaming like youtube and other sites. How am I suppose to do this?
    I ve tried by IP penalty computer but didn t work. Can u guys help me?
    Thanks a lot

    Richard



  • I'm not sure you can.  My understanding was that video/music streaming is UDP, and there is no way to throttle that inbound.



  • You need to fine tune the HSFC curve in a corresponding queue to lower its max bandwidth after, say, 1000ms.

    @danswartz:

    It's TCP. Flash video streaming is based on HTTP and RTMP. Multicast UDP is generally used by ISPs.



  • Oh yeah, good point.
