    Hi,

    I have an application which can upload to youtube through multiple accounts using youtube API.
    I plan to use multiple proxies to tackle the IP tracking issue, but I still have some concerns about the cookies if I upload to youtube using a desktop application.
    If I use a desktop application (and not a browser like Firefox) to upload to youtube, does youtube store any cookies on my computer or on the proxies ?

    Thanks for your help

    They can track the amount of buthairs you have like that.
    But not with cookies no, those are the least of your concerns.

    cookies is a browsers thing. if you are uploading through API, then you should not worrie about cookies. and 2) if your bot can switch accounts then it should clear cookies (if any) to change accounts..

    thanks for you help...If I understand well the standard cookies and flash cookies LSO can only be stored in my computer if I use a browser like Firefox, but the uploads through desktop application using youtube API are not affected by cookies, it's good to know that.
    In case I use a web browser to access youtube and use proxy, where are stored the cookies, on my computer or on the proxy ?

    Thanks

    cookies are generated by your browser and stored on your computer.. proxy server should not store this type of information

    Why would you even think about cookies when your using their API? API using direct web requests and doesn't load any type of page.

    ok, thanks for your clarifications, I am not expert at all in programming, so I was not sure if the API use can be linked to any cookies. I use the desktop application using youtube API to upload videos to 10 accounts but using only one IP, so after a few hours all my accounts are banned, wtf.

    When you say desktop application do you mean the software you are using for youtube?
    The software does not have option for proxies use? Why you did it from just 1 ip then?
