    I have a problem with flash videos when QoS is enabled. The video load very low or the download stoped. ;( When I disabled QoS the flash movie load very fast without any surge.

    Here you can see my internet options. Which value must a write in Max. Bandwith for download and upload? I have in my contract with my ISP an max. download from 6144 / 512(net) my modem has a sync from 6912 / 640(gros).

    When you want a site to test. I have problems with flash movies: h**p://www.derwesten.de/nachrichten/video.html

    Prioritizing incoming flash files or any incoming traffic for that matter is not very useful, what happens is that your router receives the incoming packets but then drops them according to the qos rules, this is only useful when you want to effectively limit the download speed for a specific computer.

    Applying your rule however shouldnt hurt performance, so I dont know what happens, maybe the l7-filter for the flash filetype is taking too many resources and thus causes the slowdown..

    did you check whether your l7-flash-filter actually works? i'm guessing, flash video streamed from the server gets throttled by the WWW (512k+) filter. this should however only influence playback performance if there is a lot of additional traffic clogging your intertube. is that so?

    You mean, I should disable the download qos?

    How can I make that?
