about Popcorn Time and qBittorrent, Dec 2016

People should not hit'n'run torrents. It has seed issues.

Please seed your favorite content till you start to bleed! Thx in the name of the others.

Many torrent clients have the seed ratio setting. Set it to 2,0 then set to delete them if you do not have enough space to keep them alive. It helps a lot also.

My favorite torrent client is: qBittorrent

Popcorn uses YTS.AG's tracker...there are a lot of fake YTS yify sites, watch out!

about Popcorn Time and YTS, BitTorrent Mar 2014

The best version at this moment is being made by geeks from All Around The World, not the closed source one that is being linked 4 popcorn as the official version, which is also closed source - and being closed source when the original code was open is not a very good sign, be careful about it.

The one actively developed by dozens of geeks 24/7 around the globe, open source and trustworthy version can be found here:

Alternatively, the releases can be found here:

And the source code here:


Why are alternativeTo admins making false and alarmist statements about this application?

Comment by UniverseMan
about Popcorn Time Mar 2014

When you click the link to the website, this comes up:

We have received reports that this application may be dangerous. See comment from our admins below:

It's using p2p, that means it's illegal.

What?? Wow. Where does one even begin?

1) "Dangerous"? I might reasonably assume that means the application is a trojan horse, spyware, etc. Is that what is being alleged? Because surely you're not calling something "dangerous" simply because it threatens movie studios' profits.

But more importantly...

2) "It's using p2p, that means it's illegal." Excuse me?? The application itself is illegal? Meaning what? I'm breaking a law by downloading it to my computer? And moreover, you are telling me that any application that uses p2p technology is illegal by virtue of that one fact? The mind reels.

What in the world is going on here? The second statement is patently false, the first statement is probably false, and both statements are needlessly alarmist. If you feel the need to say something about piracy, how about something like, "This application may be used to illegally obtain copyrighted material. Be aware of the laws in your jurisdiction and the potential consequences of breaking them."

This is really disappointing, and I hope it's the work of a rogue admin and will be undone.

edit: Thank you for eliminating the worst part of it. "May not be safe" and "may be dangerous" I think still imply the program may directly harm the user's data or privacy.
