TCP settings for streaming video

Has anyone expeirmented with TCP settings to use when streaming a lot of video? Just wonder if RWIN or other settings can make a difference in performance...(?)

As I Know
The latest microsoft operating systems have improved TCP output ( for servers!) by introducing a new contention manager which ramps up the allocation of lan bandwidth to tranactions far quicker. This is called CTCP
By default, Vista and Windows 7 have CTCP turned off, it is only on by default under server 2008. turning On This option "on" can significantly increase throughput.
To enable CTCP, in elevated cammand prompt type:
netsh int tcp set global congestionprovider=ctcp
To disable CTCP:
netsh int tcp set global congestionprovider=none
Possible options are: ctcp, none, default (restores the system default value).
Recommended setting: ctcp
By doing this you can stream faster.
