Plays are not currently working. It is looking like a SC issue:

It could be a problem with SC, they posted on their community board:

Going back to my original questions.

Would you be willing to do some testing with editing useragents to see if you can successfully get a mobile useragent play to go through, because so far I have been unsuccessful on both iPhone and Android useragents. Could this be because I need actual mobile proxies to go along with it?

As I said, changing the useragent will just mean the website was used via a mobile device. Probably mobile plays are plays made via the mobile app

unlikely as you can use your mobile device at home on wifi. Most probably it is website vs mobile app

Hi Martin,

Maybe I'm missing something but I don't have a useragents.txt file in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Soundcloud Manager\data\ folder.
Do I need to create the txt file manually or should it be included in the folder already?

Many thanks in advance!
It should be copied there when you install the program. Without it, the program cannot set the useragent http header

Would you be willing to test this to see if you can successfully achieve mobile plays? I think that would significantly help boosting songs and getting the algorithm to recognize them as legitimate plays.

as stated above, mobile plays (most likely) come from mobile app. Not mobile phones ON the normal website which is not supported.

But I will tests mobile UAs and confirm
