    You can either make Youtube slower, or make web browsing faster - both are the same thing.
    Do traffic shaper wizard for dedicated links, select PRIQ (for the sake of simplicity), select Higher priority for HTTP. Dont forget to set up & down speed to 70% of speed measured at speedtest.net in kilobits.



  • Try just using CoDel or FairQ schedulers. They both should reduce bufferbloat and semi-fairly distribute bandwidth. They're dead simple to use and may be good enough. If you're trying to control download, you need to rate limit your LAN interface.
