Without further details I cannot comment on that. But 99/100 when people say this, it's the proxies.

Public Proxy Issues:

Plays increase slowness is due to soundcloud changes and the fact you are using the same public proxies as every other user.

Soundcloud now blocks many public proxies. They also limit the plays a proxxy can do in a time period.

So just as you can scrape free proxies, so can every other SCM user, so can soundcloud.

IF 100 people are trying to give plays at the same time. Soundcloud can see one IP trying to play 100 tracks. This is not realistic, so only one play will work, the others will fail.

The best way is to use private proxies. You are using the same free public proxies as everyone else, this causes problems. Ultimately, free proxies are free because they are not very good, you get what you pay for. So if you use free proxies, they will be slow and many will fail

Regarding proxies. There is general information on the forum ... oxies#p393 ... oxies#p256

How can I improve public proxy effectiveness?

Why do plays / proxies not work, log out so many errors?

One way to improve them is to get a verified list

When you use a proxy to increase a track plays, if it succeeds it is logged to your LOGS folder with the name
where XXXX is a timestamp i.e. 20130918_

So if you scrape 1000 proxies, then setup an action to increase any track by 500 plays, once the action has complete you can go to your logs folder via:
then look for the XXXXX_proxy-success.txt and that file will list all working proxies used for the plays action.

You can see this in the video tutorial:

If you have tested with known quality proxies that haven't been abused or without a proxies and still have the same issues, please provide logs / screenshot showing the issue
