    Hello BHW,

    I'm new on this world of Spotify bots, I have been reading all the spotify related post here and most of them are about buying or selling a bot. I Would like to create and configure one.

    I already have a Windows VPS hosted on Azure Services and using the Multiple Firefox Instances + iMacros method. And scrape porxyes from hidemyass. I'ts very buggy, flash fails all the time and stop other firefox instances from working.
    I had tried python + Selenium Webdriver but the problem is spotify interface sometimes work and sometimes not.
    I have a bot account creator with proxy that is actually working but the main plays bot is not functioning.

    Is there someone who can help me run a bot and many instances of it on a VPS?
    Thanks in advance!

    I'm not sure I understand the issue correctly, the problem is that flash crash when you try to run multiple thread of your bot?

    Yes Spotify web player uses flash to decode the songs, when I have running 25 firefox instances(iMacros+Adblockplus) after 2 hours some of the flash plugins stop working, like 4 o 5 of them. I'm wondering if there's a better method of emulating a web browser. I don't know what is the correct programming language to develop a bot running 50 instances on a web server.

    My Webserver is 16 cores 2.6ghz 112gb Ram and SSD disk. So looking at the performance reports running 25 firefox instances just use 67% of CPU!

    I'm 90% sure Firefox is executing plugin like flash in a separate process so if FF is already eating 70% of your CPU that might be the issue....

    It might be fun to try to do that in python, but not sure it will work on the long term send me a PM with your Skype if you want to talk about it.
