I want a solution for Windows 7 and Ubuntu both

The router I have is ib-WRA 150 N

I am not sure if it is possible in this router

Ideally you want to do this on the router with QoS. There are several open source firmwares that do this very well (see Tomato or DD-WRT).

It doesn't look like your router supports those firmwares but that it does provide some level of QoS (see section 4.7.2 of the manual). Do some searching on configuring QoS for youtube and see if you can apply those rules with in your router settings.
