    I did a little experiment over the weekend to see if I could get my video as one of the top videos on YouTubeTrain using a single PC. Yes, it worked, but it's not a totally unmanned operation. I'll explain.

    This morning I decided to get my video planted on the homepage. My mission was successful

    http://www.youtubetrain.com

    But it was not quite the easy task I wanted, but it worked. I notice that a lot of videos there artificially inflate their points by using a vast number of systems with different IPs (that's how the give you the points) to get to the home page.

    So, I thought, what if I opened a new tab in IE or FireFox and went in through a proxy AND use my regular connection at the same time. That part is easy to do.

    First, open your first tab and use your regular connection to view the videos and rack up points. Then open your second tab and go in through a proxy.

    To do this, visit http://www.hidemyass.com (it's a totally free service) and paste the URL in the box and click "Hide My Ass" (this gives you your second IP address)

    The URL to paste in the box will look something similar to this

    Code:
    http://www.viewtubetrain.com/watch.php?l=43823&r=BigJimW10&t=1
    Replace the number (in this case, 43823) to a different number as to not collide with videos you're viewing on your standard connection in tab 1. Then change the username (in this case, BigJimw10) with your YouTubeTrain username.

    Then both tabs will be viewing your videos and racking up points. I made it to the front page just now using this technique.

    BUT (I knew you were gonna say this), there is a cavet. On the tab displaying the HideMyAss views, you will need to enter the captcha code to start. And it will randomly ask for it. The longest I had the train running without asking for the captcha was about 3 hours. Which is not bad if you have some extra time to periodically check.

    And second, a few times the video sticks and does not advance to the next video with the Autotrain on. In this case you will need to manually click the button to advance to the next video and restart the autotrain. Or, if you're desperate for points there, you can always shut off the AutoTrain and manually advance to the next video upon completion of the current video. Either way, you'll get the points.

    So, as you can see, not a totally unmanned operation, but in about 2 hours of work (checking from time to time on the HideMyAss tab), my video advanced to page one.

    Figured I'd drop this trick along. Have fun.
