yes, 'The Perfect Guy' is one long screenshot asking viewers to download and "intall" an xvid codec. Waste of dl time and scammer cannot even spell.

yeah. there does not appear to be a way for us legit users to post fake notices on spam torrents so as andrew suggests, either watch now, or choose download, then open your download and choose to watch now. you will be able to see if it opens to a movie (keep downloading) or a scam codec request (stop and delete)

Hi Guys, all of you are correct about "codec messages" instead of the movie playing. Torrents like these will be removed from the app. All of you are doing well by reporting issues like that and remember you can always check the DVD release date of specific movie at http://www.dvdsreleasedates.com so you will know if the new movies are truly has been dvd released and added to the app.
