    I don't think there is a generic way to block all "streaming video"

    you can block mime types and sites and filetypes and all sorts of things. But you have to tell it what you consider "streaming video"

    what about streaming music like Pandora?

    I'm having a problem with bandwidth hungry apps like Pandora and online games and torrents and streaming video like Netflix on my network

    Protocol control have the signatures of many of them, not all
    Also, web filter can help to block the pages.
    For torrents, here are some threats about it.

    One option is to block port 1935. Most flash apps, including video players, use this app for control information. You could also take a look at this thread:
    http://forums.untangle.com/networkin...tflix-etc.html
    The original post in that thread mentions an ip range at the bottom.

    What I would do, though, is rather than block all this traffic use the QoS feature to make sure it's taking a back seat to your more important traffic.

    Protocol control have music and streaming video signatures.
    Web filter permit play adding extension (.mp3 .mpeg .flv) or with more handwork (and hardwork) add by mime type.
