Popcorn Time 0.3.6 Beta
Features at a glance
Key features include a powerful and attractive graphical user interface that looks the same on all supported platforms, support for both 1080p and 720p movies, two different view modes (Movies and TV Series), built-in search engine, support for bookmarks, support for viewing movie trailers via YouTube, and support for subtitles.
Attractive and modern graphical user interface that is extremely easy to use
After accepting the license (please read it carefully) the program will present you with an attractive and modern graphical user interface (GUI) that is extremely easy to use. It features two view modes, Movies (the default one) and TV Series.
While the items (movies or TV shows) can be easily sorted by popularity, date, year or rating, you can view only a specific genre or all of them at once, which is also the default view mode when opening the application. A built-in search functionality will allow you to quickly search for your favorite videos, and you can access bookmarked items and application’s settings with a click of the mouse.
From the settings screen, it is possible to change the default language, set movie quality options, set subtitle options, such as language and size, configure network connection and DHT (Distributed Hash Table) limits, choose a cache directory, set a port to stream on, as well as to log into your Trakt.tv account to automatically 'scrobble' episodes you watch with the application.
Under the hood, availability and supported OSes
The application uses the powerful and open source FFmpeg cross-platform audio/video codec library, which means that it will play movies on GNU/Linux, Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. Linux users can be download it via Softpedia or from its official website as binary archives for the 64-bit and 32-bit hardware platforms. Be aware though, that it is still in development!
