    Hello Everyone,

    I've been working on some view spoofing software, and I've hit a bit of a snag.

    As I've mentioned in other posts about view spoofing in general, many of the modern tracking systems use JavaScript to trigger various logging functions.

    Since JS is a client-side language, creating a raw socket and sending headers say via Winsock doesn't trigger these functions, resulting in a wasted view.

    This is true of both Google Analytics and Youtube's view system according to my own research.

    I found what I thought would be a logical work-around, but I then ran into another snag... Youtube has a proxy filtering system in place; whenever their code sees the "Proxy-Connection:" HTTP Header it triggers a "We're Sorry, This Video is No Longer Available" error.

    That being said, I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed this, and if they've come up with any solutions to dealing with the Proxy-Connection header thing? Are there specific types of proxies that won't send this header?

    Anywho, thanks in advance to those who know what I'm talking about, and to those who don't, I hope you found this interesting :p

    Do you think then tube increaser is over writing the Proxy-Connection header some how would have to test and see how it gets round this problem

    I'd be interested in knowing what kind of proxies you're using and where you're finding them.

    I've logged packets while using TubeIncreaser and seen that it sends the Proxy-Connection header, and so my views don't go up.

    If you're not using proxies, then obviously it's a non-issue with TubeIncreaser.

    You don't see a Proxy-Connection header when you're using non-shitty proxies. That's the main issue you're running into here.

    That's pretty much what I figured, but I haven't had any luck finding HTTP Proxies that don't send this header.

    If you can point me somewhere I can scrape or buy some proxies like this, I'd be very grateful :).
