What is Popcorn Time?
Popcorn time is an open-source project, managed by people from all over the world. It aims to make thousands of movie titles available to anyone. It can be downloaded for free on all types of platforms: on Mac or Windows or Linux computers, on Android phones and tablets, or even directly for use from Android TV. To make it work, it uses a P2P system that makes everything we see shared simultaneously.
Popcorn Time is an application that will allow us to watch tons of movies both classics and recent releases in streaming, using Torrent’s traditional file-sharing service, but without having to download anything at all.
It is a great revolution in the world of piracy since it was not necessary to have advanced knowledge to navigate the platform and be able to see what we wanted without having to download film by film, but by viewing them directly from the application intended for it. Despite being haunted for years, Popcorn Time is still alive. The service is no longer as popular as it was at its launch in 2014 but it is still used by thousands of people. It has been able to avoid legal problems and complaints thanks to its open-source system. It is a platform that does not store copyright content but rather allows us to reproduce them, functioning as a torrent store to view in streaming.
In the main window of Popcorn Time, we can see the most popular movies of the moment, among which we will usually find the latest releases on DVD and Blu Ray in the United States. That is, the first thing we will see will be the most recent releases in 720p and 1080p qualities. In addition to popular movies, Popcorn Time includes a genre filter that will allow us to search only for animation, science fiction, intrigue, comedy, action movies, etc. And of course, thanks to the search engine we can try to find a specific movie. Almost all Popcorn Time movies come with multi-language subtitles. We will only have to activate the relevant option and choose the one for the language we want. We can change the size of them.
Once we choose a movie, it will take 30 seconds to a minute for it to start playing. The best thing is that we can pass it forward and backward, without negatively affecting the streaming of the movie. Popcorn Time is an excellent streaming movie playback tool. It is offering outstanding viewing quality (720p or 1080p) and interesting features such as subtitles or movie search.
