You need residential proxies, unsaturated for your purpose, and probably use a bot that will not stream the video through the proxy, only the requests which counts the view time.

Mobile proxies are best, I've always experienced drops with Residential.

which bot do you recommend, and which proxy site to use for buying proxies between these ( bright data, Smartproxy, proxyScrape).

You definetly need to buy and use 4g Mobile Proxies. The reason behind this is simply because 4g Mobile Proxies are Elite Proxies and are viewed as the most authentic for Social Media use case. Another Bonus is that 4G Proxies usually come with rotation option which you can use to manage multiple accounts.

Can you suggest how much would 4G proxy setup cost to generate 5000 views a day?

Depends on the retention, how many ports/threads you want, and the cost of your provider and if your paying for a day, week, or month access but if you have one thread/port with 30 second retention, running all day you could probably get just over 5000 views for $1-$5.

If you have 30-second rotation, in 24 hours there are 1440 minutes, if we consider (just as example) you need 1.5 minutes to load the page and for 1 view to count then rotate and view it again, then its 2 minutes for 1 view so 1440/2 - its 720 views per 1 mobile proxy in a 24-hour span. If we take the cheapest proxies available, ~$50 per device, then it's $1.60 per 720 views which in total is ~$11 per 5000 views, am I right?

And if we want US views, then cheapest US proxies costs like $150, which makes it about $30 per 5000 views.

For me, that sounds quite expensive, what Im missing here?

many providers minimal time between rotations is 2 minutes so in reality the results probably be worse than I calculated.

Depends... if you use it like that, then yes, however, you have options...

You can use more than one account at the same time and do more than 1 viewing at the same time.. just make sure you randomize the accounts to be used with each new proxy loaded! But imagine you are in the centre of London or NYC... there are many people using same 4G IP at the same time and many of them are in YT at the same time... so you don't have to do 1 view per proxy...

obviously, you don't want to do it on same videos / channels... but it is a matter of testing! If you have multiple channels / videos as targets you can make it cost effective with 4g proxies

I honestly don't know if there are any with a 30 second rotation. Although I did find one that says there is no minimum rotate time so who knows but considering no other provider is offering it, they may have misunderstood my question. Rotating typically takes 5-10 seconds. If you spent 1:30 on each proxy, you would get about a 1:15-1:25 (rough estimate) of retention on the video depending on internet speeds and if you are going to find the video via the search bar or direct link. It would take ~1:40 per view (including rotation & search time). You also need to remember that the same IP CAN view the video multiple times and give views each time meaning you can use the same proxy in multiple tabs at the same time. If my math is correct, that is 1028 views in 24 hours for 1 proxy although like I said, 1 IP can view a video multiple times and still count for views so you probably can get 2000-5000 views out of it. It's really hard to tell exactly since I know I can watch my own video 20+ times and they will all count, it's just hard to know when YouTube will detect something suspicious with all of the viewers viewing the video multiple times, you will need to experiment with this.

I really can't give you a good estimate on the cost because I've seen US Mobile Proxies go as low as $35 a month all the way up to over $150 a month and it depends on if you're going to view videos multiple times on the same IP and how long the retention is.

Most providers I've seen have a 1-minute rotation (I think?).

I'm sure we are missing something but it's a start. :)

4G ideally, in any case they will work better. You can try proxy-seller, they should be fine for your needs
