I'm not saying I used it, but I'm also not saying that it isn't really great and doesn't work flawlessly :)
Only after I finished reading the article did I realise I was on Time and not The Next Web. Interesting that this is pretty much an indirect tutorial to torrenting (including links to the best VPN's).
Couldn't the Popcorn Time devs use magnet links exclusively? Aren't those supposed to be harder to trace, compared to regular torrent links?
It's all open source, so you can contribute yourself or open an issue to suggest this feature.
I've always thought usability and convenience were the answers to piracy. Perhaps, Popcorn Time will give that theory a run for it's money.
This doesn't surprise me at all, considering the lack of legal alternatives such as Netflix outside of the USA. Why spend 20$ on a DVD when you can watch thousands of movies & TV shows for just 9$ a month?
The people who torrent are actually their biggest potential audience who they should focus on. It's a missed opportunity to leave Latin America and most of Europe in the dark. :|
