    So for the past two weeks or so, my videos have been getting banned randomly with a message "This video has been removed because its contents violated YouTube's ToS." It's only the videos though, accounts do stay. But if this does happen, then I still get strikes. Things I've tried to avoid this issue:

    -rendering completely new videos
    -completely changing titles, description, etc.

    The only thing that I've not yet tried is private proxies. But are those really worth it? If you're doing YouTube, what do you do?

    Yes you will need private proxies. But if you use unlisted method your videos will get banned after a while.

    I know but it is strange how sometimes my videos get removed like minutes after I upload them. So it's definitely not due to flaggers. However, niches that I'm using aren't safe from them.

    I create new videos. And at times, they get deleted before I get to receive any views so to my mind, this seems like an IP issue.

    I've tried the Hola extension but it didn't work out for me. I think of 9 videos I uploaded only 1 survived.

    Maybe you are using copyrighted sound in video ?

    Yep. YT deleted 2 old videos of mine. Both were 2 years old. Couldn't have been fake views cause they were boosted a long time ago. Couldn't have been copyrights cause I did it all myself. Only thing it could have been was pissed off buyers coming back and flagging the videos. Or youtube didn't like the way I was selling. It was an extreme soft sell method so I was pissed. I appealed both videos and wrote, "for every 1 video you corrupt mfkrs delete for no reason at all, I will upload 1000 much shittier videos".

    It might not be a proxy issue, I get brand new USA private proxies each month and this has been happening to me as well. I ran some tests and I found that it mostly happens to me when I have a fresh channel that has links in the descriptions of the videos.

    This is terrible that google is doing this without a process to remedy the problem.

    If I had to guess it has to do with copy written music. Of course, you can upload a video with it. But slim chances of making it past the filters anymore for monetization.
