Media Streaming Bypasses Limiter

  • Anyone else had issues with media streaming on every platform (ie. Windows 7 IE, iOS apps, Chromecast) bypassing limiter? I currently have a successful 'QoS' limiter in place with four limiter rules (In/Out guaranteed bandwidth + In/Out regular bandwidth) with all assigned to the appropriate interfaces. If I attempt a speed test or download test, the limiter works fine and my guaranteed int works flawlessly. However, as soon as a media stream (ie. YouTube, Netflix, etc.) my guarantee int goes to heck and my regular bandwidth peaks out at true max download. Here are my specs.
