I need to limit the amount of bandwidth that is used when a user streams a video on our website. As it currently stands, the user plays the video and it streams and continues to download the full length of the video and this is bottleknecking us. I need to limit it and find out how much bandwidth will be needed once it is limited to determine how much overall bandwidth we will need going forward. Any feedback is appreciated!

The was a tool called wondershaper.
(Shell script to configure some firewall stuff) for QOS.

Then you can define the port to be used as low priority port. (hence other traffic has higher priority and isn't hit too hard...)
