Plays No Longer Working

I read the previous threads about Plays no longer working. However, I am using very expensive Private Dedicated Proxies. Premium proxies. I even asked my provider to replace all of the proxies with new ones just in case. The plays are still not being delivered. I used a very cheap SMM panel service as a test to see if it was effecting everyone and they were able to deliver 20,000+ plays within minutes.

I am inclined to believe that it's not my proxies but the program itself needs to be updated.

Please advise...Thank you.

Previously I was experiencing the same. Expensive private proxies were not working. No proxy plays working. Residential proxies working.

The same function in the program.

So if it works with some proxies and not with others. The only difference is, the proxies, thus it does imply SC are blocking large amounts of proxies.

Another user tried to use their proxies in the browser and play the track. They confirmed it was NOT working with their proxies.

Could you check this?
Set your proxy in your browser, then try and play a track and watch the counter. It might go up but come back down again

Just tested in my browser using one of my private proxies. The play was counted and then removed after as well. :cry:

Looks like this is the end of delivering Plays unfortunately.

Just completed two tested

private proxies: failed
residential proxies: 100% success

Not necessarily, just means you need to find another source of proxies :)

Residential IPs are way more expensive. $500+ minimum per month for just 50 is not worth it unfortunately,

$500 a month are the premium packages, I think you can find cheaper sources.

I know storm proxies used to have a cheap package and I was told work fine. Not sure about now though.

Maybe I can sort something out using spare capacity of our proxies to offer users X plays per Y tracks per day. Isn't going to work for those who sell plays (they can buy their own proxies). But for artist customers just looking to bump their tracks, might be able to put something together
