He/she asked "How do I limit YouTube Bandwidth?" If you don't know, don't post.

It's a losing battle...

There's no practical way to limit data usage/quality across devices/users in the home without spending money on hardware capable of decent QoS and per user/device data limits.. even free OS solutions require hardware to run on, tech savvy to install/config.

Also youtube won't be the only problem wait till they discover, snapcaht etc etc etc.. even facebook has more video these days.

Change to a larger plan is the best option.

mrbbi: 1. If your Tablets/Phones are rooted?, Install Xposed Framework + Yourtube.
2. 3rd party app is Viral. "Viral popup" is the free version & "Viral Pro" is the premium version. For some reason 480p is a listed option but doesn't work. It jumps from 360p to 720p.

There aren't too many decent 3rd party android YT apps.

EDIT: Typo

Thanks for this, looks like Viral pop up does the job, gave OGYouTube a try but it appears to only let you manage the bandwidth/quality for the videos you are going to download not the ones you are streaming.
