The developers of Popcorn Time have released an open source variant of their service that allows anyone to implement it on their own domain making it nearly impossible to take down. It requires a special browser plugin called Torrents Time that’s also made open source.

It’s called Torrents…the horse has been out of the barn for a long time even if they try to kill poptime torrents will continue to live on…and that from my experience will not be going away because popcorn time has arrived.

Xercus, Does client work on Windows 10?

You can always go to their site…that isn’t hard to do…and see what they say. Amazes me when people ask that rather then go directly to the site themselves and check it out…don’t you think…

coolcolors, I don’t have Windows 10 that’s why I asked…

[QUOTE=SexyTec14;2767851]Xercus, Does client work on Windows 10?[/QUOTE]IDK if there’s official support for Windows 10 or not (I’m too lazy to look it up). However, I’m willing to bet that this plug-in will work either way. Even if official Windows 10 support hasn’t been added yet, there’s still a good chance the app will run perfectly out-of-the-box. If not, one could likely make it work using compatibility mode.

Your reply slipped by me.
Frankly, I do not know as I have yet to test it. I’m not streaming much, and the torrents I download comes down using µTorrent 2.2.1.25302.

My hunch is with TSJnachos117 though, Windows 10 have been out a while and it is a browser plugin…

I am disturbed this forum is promoting a streaming service offering mostly pirated contents.

Problem here is the horse is already out of the barn because of the STUDIO GREED and Money Machine. I will say this those that scream the loudest about pirating is bad is the one most using it. This is already a given in the internet world to think this wouldn’t happen is living in a bubble.


#15

WOw, chill a bit will ya?

While I perfectly understand the motivations behind movie pirating this is no real justification - buy that damn DVD?!

We have here in OZ the infamous and pervert (tranny) movie DBC (Dallas Buyers Club) on STAN for $10 a month… why people pirated this crap is beyond me - just a (fashion) trash production but apparently a good bait to make more money out of it thanks to pirating!?

In this context, in Australia cars/houses are at least double expensive as in the USA or EU - that does not excuse “pirating” cars/houses is fine 'coz of that.

okay, just my thought…

Hehehe. MyCE is only promoting the technology, not usage which is the responsibility of the individual user. Where would we be if we could not discuss the technology of it all and bring news about new technologies.
In my world, one could argue that Ollydebug is responsible for cracking vast amounts of software being offered in the warez-scene, still the product is imo essential for modifying code when you lost access to the source code without any shred of illegal aspects to it. Should we stop mentioning it due to the first reason?

This is correct, it reaches all over the planet from the home of Jane and John Doe who with no criminal intent finds an old move not available in the market and downloads it to the big-time pirates who will download 10-20 movies a week, maybe more.

As I said before, I do download music which I can not find and I am proud to have access to a total of more than 1.000.000 albums made available by other internet users if I so desire.
Now with the availability, I wonder why staples like ‘Bat out of hell’, ‘Dark side of the moon’ and so on still sell as well as they do :disagree:

It is like a friend of mine who’s into movies said: I download first and watch, then if it is good, I buy. Doing it that way, I now have a collection of more than than 2.000 movies of which I am proud to own each and every one.
Sure he is a pirate, a pirate buying movies like a maniac…

So what Australia want to do is to achieve what even the great firewall of China failed in (block users from doing exactly what they want)? Well, there is absolutely nothing wrong with the ambitions, that is for sure. I can only wish them good luck :bigsmile:
I find it interesting that they conclude that suing the leasers of 4726 IP addresses for downloading Dallas Buyers Club are too much for the Australian court. :flower:

I do not disagree in your views, and can only reply that I do by that damn CD several times each month.
The technology will forever change and this client is no worse than downloading using any other client as I see it.


#19

That “great firewall” is a result of the TPP, which Australia foolishly signed, hence they got obligations.

The real problem behind this all is that the judge here presiding over the DBC case rejects the ridiculous/speculative “invoicing” of the rights holder. The rights holder now has one final chance to table a reasonable fine which then can be collected, IF granted by the judge, otherwise the case will be thrown out.


#20

Off-topic.

Overall, the TPP’s provisions that recognize the rights of the public are non-binding, whereas almost everything that benefits rightsholders is binding.

Born out of protectionism and greed, granting corporations all rights and the people none! Not too hard to see the foolishness of signing that, only a few steps more and you are living in a corporate/slave-country :Z
I do share your concern, but even if all file-sharing stopped, that treaty will stay until you do something about it or in other words, the two subjects are not really in a comparable position even though one touches the other :flower:


#21

Australia always has been a prison colony and your corporate slave country is already well alive since decades! Not sure how much better things are in western countries by now?

Remember here ~10% of rich people hold 90% of all Australian cash - meaning 90% of the society lives off the breadcrumbs of the rich.


#22

Oh, I just hear the case of DBC has been thrown out - the rights holder can not charge any more than the retail value of the DVD of this crap movie.

End of story - no more fantasy/speculative invoicing of right holders suing in Australia! Perhaps other countries follow this verdict?
