Default Bandwidth throttler

I'm sitting at my laptop right now, uploading some stuff to One Drive (browser, not installed) whilst also streaming a Youtube movie into Potplayer.

My problem is that the upload seems to be hogging the bandwidth and causing the movie to stutter.

Does anyone know of any program, or native Windows function, that would let me assign bandwidth to individual processes or give one process priority over another to overcome this issue?

Cheers : )

Not sure, but I think the upload bandwidth is different from download bandwidth, and both shouldn't affect each other?

I think the stutter might have more to do with computer resources being used to upload the files as well as streaming the video... but again, not sure.

I really should have thought of that ...

Yes you're right. I lowered the process priority for One Drive and that's done the job nicely.

Thank you : )
