Stalling while streaming or downloading

I have been using popcorn time on my pc for some time now. Generally it works great. However, over the past few weeks I have been having problems (streaming and downloading; movies or TV shows). On my pc I click “watch now” (the only thing I can click). Anyway, lately I have been getting anywhere from 50% to maybe 80% downloaded and it stalls; does this like 80% of the time. Anyone know why this is and what I can do about it?

Which version … name/build number? Or where did you download it from?

If your using the 0.4.4 version from the (popcorntime.app) website? just delete everything (incl. the support folders in AppData) … and try the latest Jenkins (Dev) build:

Thanks for the quick reply. I am using version 6.2.1.14. Can’t remember exactly where I downloaded it from . . . probably getpopcorntime.is (I see that filehorse.com has version 6.2.1.17) . . . With this in mind, should I still delete everything and start over (as per the link you provided)?

You’re not using our version … I was half expecting that.

If you need help with your version, best try on their own forum: just Google “popcorntime.is forum”. (I just can’t bring myself to make the hyperlink!)

Your welcome to try ours (popcorntime.app) … but we have an issue at the moment with movies API not updating (we have to workaround it).

However, if you just delete what you have and reinstall .is again … might just do the trick?

Thanks. I will give it a shot for now. Once yours is up and running properly, I will use it. Thanks again.

It’s “up and running” now: https://ci.popcorntime.app/job/Popcorn-Time-Desktop/

You just need to copy this API: https://yts.mx/ … and edit/paste it into the “Custom Movies Server” address box - in the ‘Settings’ window. And then hit the “Restart” button.
