    Just curious - if I spam a ton of videos with links to a hosted file behind a content locker, will youtube eventually ban the account? Or will they ban the IP creating/using the account?

    As far as i know, no. But they will blacklist your ip and check everything you do faster than normal after a few accs.

    Not typically ban but yes, they will blacklist you and suspend your accounts...

    You will get a captcha block before anything major. Just switch IP's/accounts when that happens.

    I never had an ip banned, just accounts made with that ip. If I went to make a new account that ip could still be able to create one.
