We only ever have one user streaming at a time, and it's still enough to choke the 20mbps rate we get... Maybe I'm not understanding?

@anttiR: You know when you're using a bit-torrent client, the application seems to seek out the maximum possible bandwidth available to it with no regard to any other traffic on the system. We don't want that. Some applications (like bit-torrent clients) allow you to set a max download rate, but the application we're using doesn't. The question is, are their applications or router settings that can force this kind of rate-limiting onto the hogging program? I need this done in a way that the streaming videos still render properly, but don't choke the network while they're in progress.

It's not actually used for hosting anything super serious, it's just a "play with stuff" / test box. :P
