I have two machines, one running Sierra and the other Catalina.
I just finished a clean install of 0.4.4 on both as per below:
Deleted every reference to popcorn-time within:
~/Library/Saved Application State/
and downloaded the latest build for 0.4.4
Although things seem to work ok, neither option for a player (popcorn time/VLC) seems to stream the video as it’s downloading (at all?). The torrent downloads fine and if you locate the file on $TMPDIR/Popcorn-time/ you can stream it before it finishes the download but at this stage popcorn-time works pretty much like a torrent client that downloads the file in its temporal order for me.
Additionally, if I cancel the download half-way it never seems to resume (which used to not be the case in the oldest version - once you started watching something it downloaded the whole thing at $TMPDIR/Popcorn-time/
Any ideas how to fix this?
