    Hi all,

    Do you guys think that using a Tor browser is good for uploading YouTube videos? "Tor prevents anyone from learning your location or browsing habits."

    Or does it just flag/ send strong signals to YouTube that you're hidden for a reason? Does anyone use Tor browser for YT and have they found it successful.

    For those that don't know what I'm talking about, check it out here: https://www.torproject.org

    All exit node IPs are public and are monitored/blacklisted by Google. Even using google search with Tor will give you a captcha. Those accounts would be banned, comments would be ghosted or would not go to top even if you are not banned instantly. Regarding video uploads, pffffff, that speed :D, and it would be deleted anyway in the long term, especially if you promote something.

    No it's not particularly good especially if you work with bulk uploading. It USED to be though, but that's irrelevant now.

    Most of the node IPs on TOR are blocked by major websites

    Not at all, Tor is blacklisted on many major sites as it is commonly used by hackers/spammers etc...
