QoS improvement request

I've been trying to work out how I can control how much bandwidth a high priority data stream (high definition video) uses over an SD-WAN site to site link.  It's perfectly easy to prioritise, but when you have 250Mbps of video trying to squeeze into a 200+30Mbps pair of connections along with all the data traffic, it just doesn't work.

 

On most traditional systems you can cap traffic on a certain port, of from (a) certain (range of) sources, but I cannot find a suitable equivalent in Meraki MXs.

 

Am I missing something, and if not, is anyone else having the same issue?

Would Traffic Shaping work here Charles?

create a custom rule for your video traffic - local subnet? And set a required bandwidth limit?

Looks like setting a limit of 150Mbps worked!
