How to rate limit YouTube uploads on Windows 10 / Chrome / Firefox for free.

OK so there are instructions online about how to rate limit Chrome and Firefox from the developer console, but none of them seem to actually work for YouTube uploads. (Or I was doing it wrong which is also quite possible.)

The only working solution I found was a program called TMeter Free, using the documentation at https://www.howtogeek.com/347711/how-to-limit-any-applications-bandwidth-on-windows/

I’m happily uploading to YouTube at 2/3rds the max my ADSL can handle – ADSL becomes very slow on downloads if the upload is maxed out.

Tmeter is free from http://www.tmeter.ru/en/ – up to four processes only.
