Traffic Shaping with Netgear WNR1000V3

Just looking into controlling traffic bandwidth for certain uses and wondered if anyone has had much success in shaping with the Plusnet supplied Netgear WNR1000V3? In particular I am looking to limit YouTube traffic at certain times of the day and know it uses port 80 but don't want to restrict web traffic. Also looking to limit Minecraft which I have set to 'Low' but not entirely sure what low is in real numbers on this device.
Thanks

I'm interested to read the replies you get to this post. I didn't realise you could limit bandwidth to certain sites and as my kids are youtube addicts, it sounds like something I would want to do myself  Tongue

Not sure that this router can do so as it's a Stateful firewall from my understanding, whereas an application layer one could definitely do so. The stateful one works by examing ports basically speaking and not upper layer applications.
