    I had a bunch of youtube accounts set up doing the sexy girl method and one day y0utube banned all of my accounts. I'm assuming it's because they traced it back to my IP. I want to continue this method but want the accounts to stay up longer. Can anyone give a step by step on how to do it in a way that y0utube won't be able to track me by IP and ban all associated accounts. I know there's a sticky thread about setting up proxies but is that good enough? Also (total newb question coming...lol) - what do you put in as "port" when setting up proxies? Where do you get your "port" number? Excuse my ignorance.

    I imagine if you stick to one proxy per account, you should be okay. Never login to to the a different account with the same proxy. Also, clear your cookies before logging into another account.

    Every proxy has an associated port which you connect to. For public proxies, they are often 80, 8080, and 3128. The port should be listed with the IP address.

    And do we need elite proxies for this ?

    1 more question, does youtube suspect anything if the ip use to create the account and ip use to upload video is not same ?

    thanks for any replies.

    You would need elite proxies to hide your IP address and reveal the fact you are using a proxy.

    For your second question, it would be prudent to use the same IP address to create and upload videos. People do have dynamic IP addresses though so even regular legitimate users will create accounts with one IP address and then upload with another. Of course, if they are doing it from their home computer, the ISP and location will remain the same so no red flags would be raised most likely.

    Don't forget about:
    * useragent
    * cookies
    * the proxy hostname
