ok, let's try to:
1. remove folders from
1.1 c:\Users\YOURUSER\Downloads\Popcorn T1me\
1.2 c:\Users\YOURUSER\AppData\Local\Popcorn T1me\
1.3 c:\Users\YOURUSER\AppData\Local\PopcornTimeDesktop\
1.4 c:\Users\YOURUSER\AppData\Local\Temp\setup_5523.exe (any other file with PT icon)
2. uninstall current PT vers1on
3. restart your PC
4. install the latest PT vers1on from

more thoughts:
1. uninstall Google Chrome (and default web browser)
2. use CCleaner to clean the system and registry trash files
3. install browser back again
4. update drivers of the video card

Hey, so I had the same issue with my system. I am using a 4k lg tv and I built a theater pc to use . on.
Tried to stream on . and it was just super laggy and gittery.

. MAYBE!! I had to do is use gaming mode on my tv. Which I believe changes my tv from 30hz to 60hz!!!

So pc was putting out 60 Hz and tv was on 30 Hz.
I am guessing that the difference in Hz will cause it to gitter.

Pc -
8gb ram
Rx 580 8g gddr5
128 gb sad

I hope this helps some of you
