Watch the video by proxy, but it's stuck after 3 minutes
« on: January 19, 2008, 02:00:41 PM »
Hi there,

i purchased elite proxy professional.  The proxy works when i just surf online.  However, when i go to youtube, the videos do indeed work, but only for the first 2 or 3 minutes, and then they get stuck even though the whole movie is 20 minutes long.  can you please help me out with this problem? I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks

Please list the proxies here that you have used when this happens.  What browser do you use?  Have you tried a different browser?  Can you watch YouTube videos to completion without using a proxy?  What operating system are you using?

Not that it matters, they are all crap quality anyway, but I thought the maximum video at YouTube was 10 minutes?
I tell it like it is and that's offensive to those professing knowledge they don't have.

1) Import or download the proxy list into EPS
2) Click the menu: "Test"->"All" to test the proxies.
3) Double click the working proxy to set it as the active proxy.

I normally use IE, but this time, I've also used Firefox and I still have the same results.  But when I don't use any proxy, I am able to watch the videos completely.  Yes, youtube also has videos that are more than an hour long.  I don't think there is any need to mention which proxies I've used because I've used all of the listed proxies that were tested by Elite Proxy Professional as level 1.  Let's say if a movie is for 20 mins long, the movie gets stuck by the 3rd or the 4th minute.  very frustrating and need some help.

Thanks.

Yes, and it is you who is having the problem when using proxies on YouTube.  Therefore, doesn't it make sense that the problem could in the type of proxies you're using, and that by examining them a solution could be obtained?

I know that it is me who is having trouble.  I don't think I've concluded anywhere that the company's system sucks.  I really appreciate your help here.  I really hope this will help, but here is a list of all the proxies.  The only I've been using were the level 1:

Re: I manage to watch the video, but then it's stuck after only few minutes

It is my belief that you used mostly, perhaps only, Planetlab/CoDeeN proxies and that is why I asked for your list.  By "list" I of course meant the proxies you actually used and experienced this problem with ... not the complete list you leeched with EPS.

Since you have purchased EPS pro version, you have the option of removing all Planetlab/CoDeeN proxies from your lists as well as so-called "Dangerous IPs" ... do so in the future!  Do not used any transparent proxies, since doing so defeats your purpose of using a proxy to begin with.  In case you haven't figured it out, you also wouldn't want to use any non-working proxies either.

By the way, the ports 68660 and 68664 are also Planetlab/CoDeeN proxies and even if they weren't can't be used as they are invalid ports.  They should automatically be converted by the program to 16-bit ports of 3124, 3127 or 3128, but aren't because they programmers of EPS aren't too sharp apparently.

It seems very strange to me that of your "anonymous (L2)" listings, all of them are port 80 proxies.  Are you aware that some ISPs do not allow the use of port 80 proxies?
I tell it like it is and that's offensive to those professing knowledge they don't have.

When the video stops, you can pause it, change the proxy and then resume the video because the proxy you are using is dead.

Sometimes you will need to refresh the page and drag the process bar to the position when the video stops.

Yes, the ports 68660 and 68664 should be invalid ports according to the general knowledge. But if you test and use them you will find they works just as other ordinary CoDeen proxies on port 3127/3128.

The 80 port is the default port for web service. If the ISP blocks that port, the users will not be able to browse websites.

Re: Watch the video by proxy, but it's stuck after 3 minutes
« Reply #9 on: January 21, 2008, 02:37:01 AM »
you see, i'm a complete newbie when it comes to proxies.  I don't even know whether CoDeen should be avoided.  I'm assuming that all the listed proxies are the possible proxies to use since i've paid $39 plus and another $9 something for the list of proxies. 

Now, after doing that, you're now saying that when I watch a video and should it get stuck, I have to use another proxy or refresh the page? i've done that already, but the video still gets stuck at the same exact spot.  Lets say that in my first attempt, the movie got stuck on the 2nd minute, when I use your approach, the movie gets stuck at exactly the 2nd minute again; no change whatsoever.  I really don't know which port is considered appropriate. 

I really need to talk someone on the phone, because until we finish exchanging comments, more than a week will pass.  Can't we just talk on the phone and solve this thing much faster in minutes? I'm a real dummy when it comes to proxies so I need one-to-one discussion. 

And honestly, you're trying to tell me that whenever I watch a movie that is 20 mins long, I could be spending more than 50 mins doing so since I also need to add the time to search for new proxies, refresh the page frequently, and also use different proxies when watching only 1 movie? you're joking right?

Yes Terry, technically (or better stated, "in theory") a user should be able to use Planetlab/CoDeeN proxies to watch YouTube videos online, but in most cases they can't.  What they will experience, depending on many factors, are constant interruptions or complete stoppages (the "stuck" tarek99 refers to).  This is actually the need for the computer to load more of the film into video RAM and that transference through a CoDeeN proxy will always be very slow ... if even possible.

As tarek99 stated previously, he has no problem watching these videos without using a proxy ... hence the first clue that it is a "proxy problem", the type of proxy he is using ... i.e., Planetlab/CoDeeN.  The complete remedy is simply not to use a proxy for this purpose.  Actually, I can see no reason to use a proxy for this purpose anyway.

And, for your information Terry, ISPs do, in fact, block port 80 in an effort to restrict various types of service all the time.  That, however, was not the point of me mentioning this previously.  It simply seemed very odd to me that all of the anonymous (L2) proxies provided were port 80s.  In other words, I did not feel tarek99 was providing complete and accurate information.

Port 68660 converts to port 3124, not 3127/3128.  When attempting to use port 68660 or 68664 in your browser, these invalid ports are automatically converted in the process.

I tell it like it is and that's offensive to those professing knowledge they don't have.

There are some limits (cannot download or post) in CoDeen proxies, but you can use them to watch flash videos.

Any port is OK for you as long as the proxy is working.

You can test all the proxies while watching the video, when the video stops, pause it, click another working proxy and resume the video. Proxies are usually used for surfing the web pages. It's a hard task for them to load videos. Some proxies (perhaps CoDeen proxies) may limit the traffic for one user. You may try non-Codeen proxies (show "No" in the "CoDeen" column).

one more thing katmando, since you don't find any reason for me to use this program to access youtube, are you suggesting that i shouldn't continue and just go to youtube directly? i happen to work for a company that has blocked access to youtube, and so using the software could be a solution.  every individual has different needs.  just because YOU don't need to use the proxy for this purpose, doesn't mean that EVERY other individuals should share that same need.

You weren't listening tarek99.  You told me previously that you could watch youtube videos without proxies just fine.  So, that being true, there is no good reason I can think of for you to use a proxy to do so.  This is the first you've mentioned that you are doing this from a computer at work.

Trying to watch youtube videos or any other non-work related material while being paid by your employer brings up an entirely different set of values I am quite sure you do not want me to get into with you.

no, i am not trying to use up my time watching videos for my personal entertainment while working.  My boss wants me to look up some commercial videos just to get some ideas.  I work for advertising agency. The problem is that our IT regional office has banned us from accessing youtube videos, thinking that we would spend time messing around.  My boss wants me to access such videos in order to brain storm what the competitors have come up with and youtube is usually one of the resources that we use.  I would appreciate it for once you think positively rather than starting off being pessimistic and thinking that you've got something new to teach when it comes to values.  You're not the only one who has values.  So can you keep your impressive knowledge of values aside and let's get focused back to my main issue that has brought me here in the first place? In other words, yes, I don't want you to start getting into the discussion of values as you said.
thank you.
