Streaming Video Traffic is very very noisy

by robo_dev In reply to why Internet is getting d ...

The problem with streaming video is not the file size, it's the rate of delivery. Streaming video sites like youtube try to get that file down to the client as quickly as possible, using as much bandwidth as possible.

So your HTTP connection is becoming saturated.

The solution is that you need to implement QOS on your edge router to limit the bandwidth that streaming video takes.

Do you have a Cisco router at the edge? If so, it's fairly simple to create a policy map and allocate bandwidth-by-protocol.
