    I have a suggestion, someone create a webbrowser bot! I don't care if a youtube bot can't do 1,000 likes in just 3 seconds or something stupid like that, I would prefer to see something like 10 likes in 1 minute anything like that that keeps your account 90% not disabled compared to a bot which can give you 1,000 likes and get those accounts banned seconds later.

    Any suggestions? And are there webbrowser supported bots out there already?

    Just because youtube patched the One-IP-Like-Bot method doesn't mean that API supported bots have failed. There are still people using them, only modified versions that switches IP's between each like. Also, you don't get banned for throwing 1000 quick likes on a video, unless your account is spammy looking and not established. If youtube were to automatically ban/delete vids that got super-quick likes, it would be way to easy to eliminate your competition by shooting all of them a crapload of likes.

    Well I find it funny when people say that their API bots have failed. You know what has failed? The developer key you are using for the bot. If you use YouToob FE just press Options -> Change API key, and go grab a new one. Should work fine then ;)

    Spk i have got your youtube FE but the bot shows error during startup .. "There was an error connecting to server"
    I use youbooster PRO edition.. and i am not able to change the API key in that ..

    But if you change your API key it wont work for a long time .. You need to keep it changing ..
    moreover i thing a web browser bot would surely work as it is liking video manually doesnt seems to be a problem
    when it comes to 1 ip/like .. When you do the likes manually .. from multiple accounts .. it works great

    Well if it works manually, it is fully possible to automate it with pure sockets. Just make sure you use the exact same headers, cookies, etc.

    YouToob FE reports that the server might be down. So, there is no chance of that working at all lol.

    Interesting concept about using sockets, manually creating accounts give a less probability of it getting banned (botted, if that makes any sort of sense).

    Changing the API key on a frequent basis may take some effort, effort i will be willing to put in at a later stage.

    I haven't touched botting for a while, but I will analyze this and report back this weekend. I honestly can't believe they can stop bots from liking a video.

    Its weird, because you'd think they might stop bots from disliking stuff... Nope, dislikes are running fine but likes aren't.

    would be interested in finding a solution for this too.. bookmarked :)

    Also, just on a side note, i just have to get off my chest aswel about what features id like to see in other bots...

    1.Why can't we set up programs like senukex that go out and pull and spin content to repeat 5, 10, 20 times and each time getting new content but on the same keyword, rather than constantly babysitting it.

    2. Same as above, but with xgenseo (which would needed to be run on socks since its SUPER slow)

    The problem i keep running into is that you need to verify the accounts with the webbrowser bot each time
