UDP limit for video chat

    What would be a good value for the 'UDP Limit' in IP/MAC BW Limiter, if I want to have smooth IM video chats but also want to limit excessive amounts of UDP packets (i.e. I wouldn't like to use nolimit).

    You might ask why I don't just test different values myself and see what works, but the thing is that I don't use the Tomato myself: I have just installed it for a three person shared flat.

    At first I used a value of 50/s per user, but then got complaints that video chats didn't work almost at all. Then I changed it to no limits, and video chats work ok, but I would still like to have limit for UDP packets. What would be a good value?
