    Has anyone else noticed them?
    I have a fiverr gig where I deliver video likes, and all of the sudden all my bots stopped working today. The bots all use YouTube's API to vote.

    When I tried to like the video manually it worked, but only for one video. No matter what I try, even manually, when I like any other video it has no affect on the like counter.

    Is anyone else experiencing anything similar?

    Yeah. It looks like API voting doesn't work anymore. Even though when I login manually i can see the Like button was clicked, the counter stays the same.

    Yeah, I notice that too. My youtube like/comments/favo bots doesnt work anymore. I think YOUTUBE is getting smarter now and patching their system.

    I've been doing some research and I think its something similar to the "view freeze" problem. It seems that if you send too many likes in a short period of time to a certain video, that video's like counter will freeze and any like/dislike you perform will not affect the counter.

    Still looking for more opinions though... has anyone been able to solve this?

    Well manual ratings are not counting 100% aswell so this is an issue at yt's end.Yt had similar issues some time ago with the ratings not counting and freezing, just wait a few more days hopefully it will get back to normal.

    Same thing happening here - perhaps a timer with whatever bots we use would be useful here? If it's true that you can only like x-amount of times in so long. Otherwise hopefully they'll fix soon :/

    Yes, i have the same problem with a video of mine.
    I even deleted my video, and re uploaded it, and tried to give it some manual likes.
    And the counter is stuck again.. but i tried to dislike and it works perfectly.
    The end of youtube bots / manual likes ? :O

    Nope, that's not it. Viral videos still get likes in the tens of thousands in less than 24 hours. The like bots got patched because the likes are all coming from one IP. If you're skilled enough to set it up to work with a VPN service or with proxies that youtube doesn't recognize, your like bot will work again.

    If you make it, you'll have a golden egg for sale, as no one on fiverr currently offers more than 300 likes due
    to the bot fix
