I returned Tube Automator for a Refund & Tubinator stuff too

    I tried Tube Automator out for over a week, and I hate the program, so I got a full refund of the $147.

    I think the program is worth $50. If I could get it for $50 I would get it again, but no way for $147.

    It's not worth it & it's a complete pain in the butt to use.

    It took me several hours to figure out how to use it. And I still may not even be doing it all exactly right, I don't know.

    I was able to do all it does, create accounts, leave comments & rate videos. But it was a major pain doing it and it took FOREVER!

    First of all I made about 50 accounts, then I rated all my videos, 50 ratings per video. Once the accounts were made the rating was easy.

    I tried the comments out, I left 2 custom made comments on one of my videos just to see it work, it did tht ok.

    The interface is WAYYYYYYY too complicated to use! It needs to be seriously simplified!

    Like when you are creating accounts, you gotta make the account names, then click here to do the captcha thing, then click here to verify them, it's way too many steps & screens.

    IT'S WAY TOO MUCH WORK TOO!

    It takes probably almost the same amount of time & energy to create accounts with Tube Automator than it does to just manually do it yourself.

    I mean first of all you got them stupid capthas, I can't even read those stupid things, I only get them right 33% of the time!

    And when I am lucky enough to actually get a captcha I can make sense of, then there's a 50% chance it says the username is already in use, even if I let Tube Automator make the names it's still happen, which means I have to solve a whole new captcha.

    And you gotta be rel careful how you save your files with Tube Automator, because after I miraculously made 50 accounts the file got erased somehow. I don't know exactly how. All I know is I was trying to make more accounts and it must have overwritten the old file of the 50 accounts with my new file of only 5 or 6 accounts.

    So there I was starting all over, it frustrated me so much I waited a few days to try again. So then I try to make new accounts, and it took me 3 hours just to make 15 accounts!!! With the usernames being taken or not being able to solve the captha, it took THREE hours to make a mere 15 accounts! That's ridiculous!

    I can manually sign up for 15 youtube accounts in less than a hour without Tube Automator!

    The best thing about Tube Automator is the REFUND.

    At least he gives a refund.

    The person I bought Tubeinator from does NOT give back a refund. But, I like tubinator, it's easy to use.

    Although I will also say this about Tubeinator, it's not really worth $99 either, more like $50 also. Because it dosen't get your VIDEO any honors. It gets your CHANNEL honors. And it does NOT help you get in the front page of YOuTube, the featured section. From what I've read the featured videos re all hand selected by real YouTube employees.

    So basically all Tubinator does is put you in the top 100 of your category, but how many people really look at videos by category? Not many. Most people that go to YouTube never click on that crap, they just type in what they are looking for in the search box and away they go.

    But I still like Tubinator for what it does do, which is it does give people the illusion tht they are looking at a popular video.

    Tubinator is OK, but if I could I'd get a refund from them too and just try the cracked version.

    I wish someone would crack the Tube Automator, it wouldn't be that bad if it were alot cheper or free, I mean I guess it's not bad AFTER you've created all the accounts you need.

    So that's my review of those 2 programs.

    Tubinator is good, does what it says, but it wont get you on YouTubes front page featured section, it's not gonna help you get millions of REAL hits.

    Tube Automator Sucks because you gotta be a rocket scientist to get the accounts created. And it's way overpriced.

    uhh what i taught my friend who doesnt know much about computers at all to use this in 15 minutes. Lol everything is straightforward and all in the manual i have no idea how it took you 7 hours to set up. Are we talking about the same program? Tube Automator right?

    I read the manual & I watched a video on it too.

    First of all the TOR thing didn't even work, even after I downloaded these other two firefox add ons it said I needed Valdalia and something else.

    So I had to use proxies.

    Yeah it takes hours to make accounts, it's crazy because if I let Tube Automator pick my usernames to use, alot of them are already in use.

    Then if I create my own user names, alot of them are also in use, and believe me I created some weird names & numbers that had to be unique.

    The interface is complicated because it's like 3 steps to create 1 account.

    If it was as easy to create accounts as Tubinator is easy to use in increasing views, I would have liked it, I wanted to like it, I tried to like it.

    IF the creator of the Tube Automator ever improves the program to make it easier to create accounts, I would give it another try.

    Yeah I agree it's weird, the first time I tried to create accounts it didn't seem to take long, I made 50 accounts, I didn't time it, but it felt like it did it pretty fast. Then after the text file that the usernames & passwords were in got deleted, and I tried to make more it took over 3 hours to make 15 accounts. Maybe it was just a youtube glitch in the system or something. I am going to try this other program Tubebooster now that I just found out about. It's supposed to do everything Tube Automator & Tubinator does in 1 program.

    Pain in the ass with this software, easiest way is to pay a coder to do something for you server side, and auto outsource the captcha. I know I've used image2text.c0m, something like that, and no I'm not affiliated with them.

    If you have problems creating with it, dont create with it, create manually and import, or just buy the names, they are cheap as fuck to pay someone to make.

    how much would 500 accounts typically cost? Yeah I may try that too, just creating the accounts manually saving them in text file and importing them into a program.

    While I don't own the software involved in this thread, you might want to be aware that the version of Privoxy that comes with the Vidalia Bundle is outdated. If you want to get TOR working again, try installing the Vidalia bundle first. Do not install the Privoxy that comes with Vidalia Bundle. Uncheck the Privoxy box during installation. Then shut down Vidalia and TOR. Tor should shut down when exiting Vidalia control panel. Go to privoxy.org and install the standalone version of the latest build. I think it's
    3.0.10. The version of Privoxy that comes with Vidalia bundle is 3.0.6.

    After you have done the above, you will need to edit the Main Configuration txt file for Privoxy. You can find it by going to START - PROGRAMS - PRIVOXY - EDIT CONFIG - Main Configuration

    It should open up in your default text editor.

    Search for the line:

    # forward-socks4a / 127.0.0.1:9050 .

    Take out the # from the line and save it.

    Should like like this now:

    forward-socks4a / 127.0.0.1:9050 .

    While your in that Main Configuration file:

    If you want the taskbar icon to be animated when traffic goes through it, search for the following line in Main Configuration file:

    #activity-animation 1

    Take out the # to like like this:

    activity-animation 1


    To see what urls your application is hitting through Privoxy, find the following line:

    #log-messages 1

    Take out the # to look like this:

    log-messages 1

    Now start up Vidalia, which will start up TOR. Then start up Privoxy.

    Now open Firefox and right-click at the bottom right over the Tor Disabled and hit Preferences. Hit the Test Settings to see if you are working.

    If you are using IE, just set IE to use Privoxy at 127.0.0.1 port 8118. Got to a site to check ip. You can check at whatismyipaddress.com if you like.

    The reason I point out the version of Privoxy that comes with Vidalia bundle is old, is I had problems with another piece of software creating account. I watched my Privoxy log window and saw alot of things being CRUNCHED. Accounts weren't getting created either so it was probably crunching something I needed to create the account.

    Give the above instructions a try and let us know if it works out better for you.
