How can I disable sound playing from the YouTube videos?
- A little trick is to drag the volume slider on the YouTube video all the way down, as opposed to pressing the mute button. This will effectively silence all YouTube videos. Or if you have Windows you can click on the speaker icon, click Mixer, then drag the volume down for the Vagex application.
How else do you promote my video?

- Please use the FireFox viewer.
Why doesnt the Vagex viewer software work on my Windows computer?
- Make sure you have the latest version of the Microsoft NET Framework.
How can I make my video even more popular?
- If you really want to increase the popularity of your videos, you must optimise them for particular keywords.
For Example: If you want everyone to see your call of duty head shot video , then you should optimise your video for the specific keyword, so that when people search for it in Youtube or Google , your video will be at the top of the results. The first step to optimising your video is to put the most relevant and popular keyword, you can do this by going to the YouTube search bar and typing call of duty, at which point it will recommend a number of popular searches to do with that. I found (Call of duty headshot montage), or you could even target more niche keywords (Call of duty ww2 headshot montage). You then put this keyword in the title, description and tags. Then add the video to vagex, and we will take care of the rest.
I just added my video, why isn't it receiving views?
- You need to wait at least 10 minutes after adding the video.
Can I run multiple version of the viewer?
- Yes, you may run all viewers on each IP address, up to 5 IP addresses per account. For example you may run two firefox viewers if they are running on different computers with different household ip addresses.
What is the point of increasing my YouTube Views?
- Views do several things for your videos (but they should be accompanied by likes and subscribes). They basically tell youtube that in all aspects of people using their site, a higher fraction of people are watching your videos and this demonstrates quality content which they will use to increase the quality of their service. You should see the following when you get more views:
- Increase the rankings of your videos for the youtube and google search results.
- Get your video shown more often on related and suggested video lists.
- In the search results people tend to choose videos with higher views
How do I get paid when I exchange credits?
- If you exchange your credits to another member through the VagExchange, you can choose any payment processor you like. If you exchange your credits through the exchange rate, you may select Paypal only.
My account says I have received x Likes and x Subs but on Youtube it is different, why?
- We have found that likes and subs are a lot like views and do not update straight away. Please be patient and check back tomorrow. Importantly please note that we do not guarantee that every view/like/sub we provide will show up on youtube. Also we are constantly updating the system to be more accurate with the statistics, so if they are not accurate for you please let us know.
Can I view using proxies?
- No. If you do, all your credits will be forfeited and your account deleted.
How can I cancel a subscription?
- If you want to cancel your subscription just go to your PayPal account, click on All Tools, click on pre-approved payments, and then cancel your automatic payments to Vagex.
Why was my account suspended?
- Possible reasons could be:
- You were using proxies.
- You were running multiple viewers with the same household ip address.
- You were detected as having multiple accounts
- You were blatantly cheating or trying to hack our system. We store a cheat log and know when you use multiple accounts, or view incorrectly. If you gain too many entries in this log we will be forced to ban your account without notice.

This machine is already registered to another user?
- If when using the viewer you receive the error message [This machine is already registered to another user], then you can try resetting it. Please note that your machine ID is unique for your version of windows and no one else in the world will have it. All Machine IDs reset automatically once a month on the 1st.
Follow these instructions if you want to reset your Machine ID in our database:

Why does my antivirus detect the viewer as a virus?
- Some Antivirus software may have flagged the Vagex Viewer as a virus. It is not a virus and the code is Securely signed by our code signing certificate. So just add it to your safe list if you are using these antiviral softwares.
How can I increase the ratio of vagex views to youtube views?
- To increase the ratio of vagex views to youtube views you can try adjusting the variables for example, increasing the view length.
Also please be aware, the more video entries you have of the same video, the worse the ratio will be, but the greater the rate of views will come in. Our website is designed to build your views over time rather than all at once. So spending 200,000 credits on one video entry may produce about 40,000 over several months. But if you have 20 entries with 10,000 each, then you will use up all these credits in no time and have maybe only 15,000 youtube views in the end. It is up to you to find a strategy that works.
Can I transfer credits to someone elses account?
- Please make an exchange request on VagExchange.
Why do I get an error saying my YouTube account is blocked?
- If you are Auto-Liking and Auto-Subscribing when using the viewer, then your YouTube activity feed should remain public so that we may verify your account performing these actions. If we cannot verify these actions your account may be blocked from our system. You can make the actions public using this page. If your account is banned it simply means you cannot use it in the viewer whilst your activity feed is hidden. You can enable the activity feed and request that it be removed from the banned list.
Why dont you guarantee youtube views?
- If 1 credit were to produce 1 guaranteed youtube view, it would require 3-4 views from the viewers. So we would have to reduce the amount of credits given to 0.25 per view. This makes things a lot more confusing. We would rather keep it simple.
How many videos can I view per day?
- Each userID can view as many enabled videos in the database with credits allocated to them that have not reached their daily view limit.
Why was my account suspended?
- You were found to be using multiple accounts, trying to exploit the system or breaking our terms.
What is the maximum views my video entry will receive per day?
- You can input a minimum and maximum. For example, if you put 300 as the minimum and 700 as the maximum, then your video will receive an amount of views between these two values each day. You cannot put a minimum lower than 100.
How do I earn free credits with Twitter?
- If you tweet your referral link each day with #vagex and it appears in the #vagex feed you will automatically receive bonus credits. The number of bonus credits you receive is based on how many followers you have. This is the breakdown:

Will YouTube ban my account if I add a video to Vagex?
- No. You do not need to be the owner of a YouTube video to add it to our rotation. YouTube cannot ban a YouTube account based on a video in our rotation. However, please note we are not affiliated with YouTube, and YouTube do not like these type of view exchange services.

I am unable to install Viewer version 4?
If your operating system is Windows XP then this may not work for you. Unfortunately we use an encryption method called sha256rsa, and to make the program compatible with older windows systems then we would need to install the less secure sha1rsa. What you can do is try to install Microsoft.net framework 4.5
