I am having a slow internet connection and I am looking for some solution so that I can divide the 1/5th of available bandwidth to me for youtube uploads while at the same time working with other things being connected to internet and rest of 4/5th of my bandwidth should be available to me to work.Is there a solution for the same?

I want a solution for Windows 7 and Ubuntu both

UPDATE
The router I have is ib-WRA 150 N http://www.flipkart.com/iball-150m-wireless-n-adsl2-router/p/itmd375x5yfzbsgb

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.
