Meta Cafe is an online video-sharing website where users upload and share thousands of short-formed videos everyday. Its structure is similar to Youtube but it exclusively has short-form entertainment only. It was originally one of the most popular video-sharing platforms but has been overshadowed by the current juggernauts like Youtube, Dailymotion and Vimeo. Meta Cafe still has a large user base though, with over 40 million users visiting the site monthly.

Similar to other social media sites, you can optimize your experience with Meta Cafe using a proxy. Through a MetaCafe proxy, you can link to a more stable connection to better avoid lag. If you want to protect your online identity as a creator on Meta Cafe, then proxies can help you hide your personal information and anonymously browse it. Proxies are also useful for viewers, especially if you want to unblock and watch a specific video that is not available in your region. Through proxies, you can change your location to where you’re able to access MetaCafe videos.

The best proxies for Meta Cafe would depend on what you want the most. If you want full security on your information and total anonymity when browsing, then residential proxies are the best proxies for you. If you want speed and a faster internet connection, then datacenter proxies are the ones you need.

Let's configure the best proxies for Meta Cafe.

Note: Make sure that the web browser you’re using for Meta Cafe is set to automatically copy your computer’s proxy settings. Google Chrome automatically does this, so it’s recommended to use it.

How To Use Proxies With Meta Cafe

For Windows:

To set up proxies in Windows, simply search for “Proxy Settings” in your windows search bar and open the search result.


You are then given two options to choose from: Automatic proxy setup or Manual proxy setup. If you want windows to automatically detect your proxy settings, choose the first option. Choose the second option if you want to utilize a specific ip address and port number.

If you chose the first option, then:

  1. Turn on Automatically detect Settings
  2. Turn on Use setup script
  3. Enter the script address
  4. Click Save


If you chose the second option, then:

  1. Turn on Use a proxy server
  2. Input both server address and port number
  3. If you have any addresses you would like to visit without a proxy, enter them here
  4. Turn on Don’t use the proxy server for local addresses check box if you want to access a local server without a proxy
  5. Click Save


For Mac.

To start configuring your proxy settings in MacOS, simply:

Step 1. Click on the Apple Icon.


Step 2. On the drop down menu, click on “System Preferences”.


Step 3. Click on “Network”


Step 4. Click on “Advanced”


Note: Make sure to connect to your wi-fi first.

Step 5. Click on “Proxies”


This should then redirect you to MacOS proxy settings. MacOS is more straightforward compared to windows. You only have one option which is to manually configure your proxy server.

Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Select which proxy IP protocol you want to configure. This depends on which protocols your proxy service provider offers.
  2. Turn on Secure Web Proxy
  3. Input the Proxy Server Address and Port Number
  4. Click OK to save the configurations

Note: You may be prompted for your Mac user password to save your settings.


For Mobile:

To set up a mobile Meta Cafe proxy server, simply change your phone’s proxy settings. Meta Cafe will automatically copy your phone’s proxy settings whenever you use it. This is applicable for both Android and IOS. Here’s a thorough guide for Android and another one for iPhone.

Congratulations! You have now finished configuring a Meta Cafe proxy server. Note that the first time you visit it, there will be a pop up asking for your login credentials.
