Information can be shared effectively by using of videos. Therefore, it is no wonder that videos form most of the Internet traffic. For the efficient operation of the Internet, it is essential that these videos are shared with a proper and effective way. In our previous paper, we have already presented a congestion control mechanism for the proper transmission of videos. This mechanism can offer two priority levels for video. There is a low priority service where the bandwidth is given away to other connections after the load level of a network exceeds a certain level. Instead, the other priority level, a real-time mode, always wants its fair share of the bandwidth. In this study, we have tested the operation of this mechanism by doing real network tests.
