Could you explain this in idiot's terms for me please?
Also, does it affect anything else on your PC?

Will only affect spotify. It uses a different IP address, which is assigned to every computer that connects to your network. This uses a private IP as a proxy. Not sure how it blocks adverts but it does :thumbsup:

Cool, have set mine up with a UK proxy. Will see if it plays any adverts :thumbsup:

I read about a method similar to this where you would use a foreign proxy (for a country which does not have Spotify adverts -- e.g. Russia or something like that maybe?) and it wouldn't play adverts, as there weren't any for that country.

P.S. You'll want to use a server with low latency, otherwise it'll take ages to buffer a song.

Edit: Just got an ad >_which proxy do you use Ryman?

IP : 92.52.125.20. Port : 80
The foreign proxy doesn't work as it checks where you live compared to your proxy.
Havent been using it that long, will see if any adverts come on.

Going to delete the comment as I don't want too many people using it,] first result on google

got an advert using that proxy

Still no adverts for me. There's plenty of proxy's on the site, just try another

How does using a UK proxy prevent adverts from being played? :? Surely thats just the same as being in the UK and using Spotify...

Haven't had anything yet with a Chinese SOCKS5 yet... *touches wood*

I would suppose that most ads are targeted to specific or english speaking countries, and dont bother to waste bandwidth on countries that dont

Think as soon as 2+ people use the proxy it's automatically blocked.

Could alternatively listen to grooveshark? Never had an ad listening to that online
