    Hi,
    (to get to the problem, skip this paragraph)
    i am about to start with bhm in big scale, and i want to know which proxy software/list i should invest to. I am gonna need it for youtube - creating accounts, posting videos, and then for spamming on different forums and sites - usualy not that popular. I was also thinking to use it on social bookmarks. Cloakfish looks good to me, but i am afraid, concerning the proxies are shared, i might be problem with youtube. But i have no personal experience, i am just afraid. Or i can buy private exclusive proxies, but i guess it's a bit overkill, and also they are kind of more expensive.

    Youtube account creating, uploading videos(is it necesary do it on proxy?), minor (social) sites:

    Cloakfish?
    Private exclusive proxy?
    Other option i am not familiar with?

    Cloakfish is my product but I still try to be objective:

    Cloakfish provides you with a large number of geolocated IPs, much better performance than Tor but still about the same high anonymity as Tor can provide.
    You can choose new IPs every 24 hours, so if you require a lot of IPs and/or highest anonymity it's one of the only legal choices you can find.

    The downside of true anonymity is reduced performance, often the speed is not better than dialup.
    You can choose faster proxies but that will reduce the number of IPs you can take.


    For Youtube commenting, account creation,linkwheels Cloakfish can probably do a good job. For Youtube video uploading .. well you can use it but you waste a lot of time due to the reduced speed.
    As time is one of your most valued resources you should consider another solution for YT uploading.

    For that I'd go for an exclusive solution (hosted, dedicated proxies on highspeed lines).
    You might want to check my sale thread for seo-proxies.com here but there are other guys offering private proxies as well.

    In any case try to stick to stuff from reputable companies or people here on BHW.
    There is a lot of fraud and scam in proxy business, often you're sold unreliable stuff or even illegal access to hacked computers. So think twice before buying from a newbie or an offer you found using google.

    cloakfish would be an option to consider, just install one firefox addon [proxy switcher] & you can switch proxies from the browser tool bar with cloakfish. Its $38 for 30 proxies per day

    I've used cloakfish for this, but I quit because it was extremely slow.. I'm now using seo-proxies from the same guy, and it works great.

    I like the concept but that price seems pretty high to me..I am looking to use these proxies for 10 min and be done with them..I was hoping for a small monthly rate
