Hello Popcorn-Time team! I'm here to report another bad torrent:
American Made (2017)
It's weird that I found the movie searching in the . . but couldn't find it by searching its name in the search bar. Another error?
And thank you for making this awesome program!

Thanks guys,
Reckon it will be fixed it in the nearest future.
As for the lacking codec... sometime it happen that users share poor content which is to be automatically removed.
But if at any reason app is stuck this way - please shift the torrent resource in drop down menu.
And of course notify the forum and app users.
Thanks again and best wishes.

Dear support team,

Red Sparrow movie (it was just released in March, 2018) is available on . but as soon as it loads it says:

xvid video codec may be required to view video

If I am adding a subtitle to the movie, it seems that the subtitle runs but not the movie. Can you please confirm it's not me (Mac user) having this issue? I have read a topic around saying that this message is some kind of virus and the admins should be noticed.

Regards,
Alex

XVid CodecMessage for

EQUALIZER 2

just released movie 2018. I downloaded the xVid codec now to my computer to see if that helps with the playback after the mp4 file was fully downloaded by .. It did not help. The whole movie is one screen displaying the ad to download the codec. When . downloaded the torrent it also came with a readme file that has a link to download the codec at
https://codec.newfullgames.net/

. A BOGUS SITE SO THIS TORRENT ALSO NEEDS TO BE REMOVED

THANKS!
