Tune.pk introducing User Level System

Spamming is the biggest the nightmare of Internet. No website on internet is spared by this demon and Tune.pk is no different. To minimize the spam and enhance the user experience Tune.pk is introducing a User Level System.

This new system will assign a User Level to every user. All existing users will get a level automatically based on their activities. From now on the system will automatically assign a Basic User Level I to every new user. Once you surpass the Basic User Level I, you will than have to request tune.pk team to switch you to the next level. With progressing through User Levels, you will have to make a request every time you are eligible for next level.

The User Levels are:

Basic Level I

Basic Level I will be assigned to all new users. In this level user can upload upto 10 videos maximum. All the uploaded videos will have to go through moderation before they can be made publicly available.

Basic Level II

Basic Level II will have upload limit of 25 videos. In this level users videos will not go in moderation and will be available publicly as soon as they upload.

Basic Level III

Basic Level III will have upload limit of 100 videos. No moderation required in this level as well.

Intermediate Level I

Intermediate Level I will have an upload limit of 500 videos

Intermediate Level II

Intermediate Level II will have an upload limit of 750 videos.

Semi Pro Level

Semi Pro will have an upload limit of 1500 videos.

Pro Level
Pro will have an upload limit of 5000 videos

Publisher Level I

Publisher will have an upload limit of 10000 videos.

Publisher Level II

Publisher Level II will have an upload limit of 25000 videos.

Producer Level

If you surpasses the Publisher Level II, you will be switched to the Producer level where you can upload unlimited videos.

These measures had to be taken to improve both the user and uploader experience. Some might find these procedures irritating but to control the spamming only automation is not enough. A spammer can trick the automatic system but not human.

Note: Moderation is mandatory only in Basic Level I

How to access YouTube via Tune.pk in Pakistan Without Any Proxy Software

It’s been more than a year since YouTube banned in Pakistan and all you have to do is to use VPN/Proxy services but not anymore. A group of Pakistani developers came up with a unique Chrome extension that lets you play any YouTube video in Pakistan without connecting to any VPN/Proxy service. Want to know how?

How to install and use Tune.pk Chrome extension.

Step 1:

Download Tune.pk Chrome Plugin file from here. This extension of Tune.pk only works with Google Chrome and not any other browser.

Step 2:

Now open your Google Chrome Browser and go to Tools >> Extensions (Fig1), now when the extension page is opened all you have to is drag the downloaded file in Extension Manager page and your Tune.pk Chrome Plugin will be added and ready to work.

Figure 1:



Now that the Tune.pk Chrome Plugin is installed in your Chrome browser, open any YouTube link of the video in Chrome browser and magically you will be redirected to the Tune.pk and after processing of few seconds the video will be at your disposal to watch and share. It’s that easy and simple. The processing time can be increased depending on the duration of the video though.

In the end I would like mention few steps you can follow to initially test the plugin.

1.       Open Google.com
2.       Search “funny cat videos” on Google(Fig2) for example
3.       Click on any video link and you will be redirected to tune.pk straight away and video will be available after processing (Fig3 & Fig4)

Hope this article will help you installing the plugin, if the screenshots are confusing please also watch the below video. If still facing problem installing, leave your comments down and we will address your issue.

Tune.pk and Revenue sharing

One of our main motive was to develop and make a system such that uploaders and content creators can earn from Tune.pk. There are not many options available for us for revenue generation so we opted the best which is Google Adsense. Google adsense offers 3-way sharing and luckily we got a chance to develop its product as a part of Tune.pk.

This system allows uploaders/publishers to earn using Adsense via Tune.pk. Adsense “so far” is the best revenue generating platform if we compare to others but with some strict policies and rules.

Right now we are in our beta development stage, by the end of this week we will have our demo app online for Google dev team to review. Once our app is approved it will be made public and publishers who want to join this program can apply in easy steps which will be given once our system is up.

We want to promote publishers, content owners and content creators as much as we can and this is one of the best opportunity for them to avail. We hope this update will benefit alot of users.

This is not the end, we have so many big plans which you will see in near future. very soon.

Its ok if Youtube is unblocked, sometimes..you need something to compare yourself with. for us, its Youtube.

Thanks for using Tune.pk.
