    I want to avoid having multiple youtube accounts banned for uploading. Should I use a different proxy for each one or should I just use a VPN service for a monthy fee?

    I feel that $10 a month for VPN would be more convenient, does this work?

    I guess it comes down to how your uploading manual/software

    Manual at the moment. Don't plan for software until I find something that works.

    But why would it matter?

    Hey,

    both can work fine; you must be sure you won't have a static ip with your VPN and it should be fine. If your VPN assigns you a static ip, once it's banned by YT, you're done.

    Cheers.

    Most VPNs are static/dedicated IPs and you will be hard pressed to find one with dynamic IP changing capability. Proxies are a better route in my opinion because you can just switch your proxy host with one button, and besides, proxies are free.

    VPN would be more secure; try HMA VPN, they have a ton of servers you can choose from, and all of them serve dynamic ips.

    A VPN is without a doubt more secure, I cannot dispute that. I forgot to mention that in my post. Thanks for pointing that out, Doom.

    If you are just uploading 1 or 2 video per yt account, you aren't really posing much of a risk for the account though assuming that the proxy is intercepting your data.

    a proxy is a proxy and a vpn is a vpn. a proxy is cheaper, can be used on a browser or your chat software, while a vpn can be installed on your network adapter so that anything that goes out of your computer goes through that vpn. if you are trying to hide yourself completely, you shouldn't be using a proxy, since there are ways for sites to get a packet sent out to their servers out of the browser to find out your real ip, paypal does that if im right, to check if you are using a proxy. vpn is slightly more expensive, but i'd advise you to go for a vpn only and not a proxy for your computer. Well, if you need it for something like scrapebox, proxies are what you should be going for.
