Title: Popcorn time connection problems
Post by: thar on 06 June 2015, 15:01:50
I'm having problems trying to connect to popcorn time today. I guessed Plusnet may have blocked access so tried using a VPN, but I still can't connect. Any of you guys using it having problems?

I could do that snadge, but it used to work so well, just wondering if it's just me.

General I've no problem with popcorn time except now and again it will disconnect after about 10-20 mins into a film but restarting it's fine.

maybe .> http://getpopcornti.me/ (http://getpopcornti.me/)   ?

just had another spooky/curious day , went for cheap hair cut , ( first in 8 Months  :o )
found a barber locally ,  easy to see he was Arabic  , during the cut we got talking about the middle east , and I shared my thoughts on we are all Bro's , result  I got a free good haircut , but yes I gave him 5 , and gained a new peace loving friend , 
later I went to get 2 new tyres for the car ,  price was agreed . started reminiscing about
about the "good old days " when my first job was in a tyre bay , and only had 1 tyre lever and a rubber mallet , the fitter/owner  stopped and asked where was that , told him he said was the owner/boss Butch Fountain , it was ,  it was his dad ,
got the tyres fitted  at his invoice price ,  not that odd I guess but that was 40 years back , and I now live 50 miles away ,
maybe I should have bought a lottery ticket ?  but then I won that once on my first attempt , but  figured lightning never strikes the same place twice ,
so far that has proved true since I got struck 30 years back ,  >:(

Oh right. I couldn't see a date on the link Roco posted. I'll try downloading it again later and see if it works. I cancelled the VPN subscription after reading it had closed down :o

What vpn service do you use

I didn't use any until yesterday, but thought Plusnet had blocked it, so I tried the one Popcorn time links to. I paid the first month then cancelled. I could always sign up again.

I use PureVPN's UK VPN Service (https://www.purevpn.com/uk-vpn-services.php) since past few years and i must recommend to use their service, with $2.49/month you have many smart features.

torgard has less IPs less servers as compare to purevpn as well as it doesnt  provide better live chat as per my experience

Well it works for me and it's cheap, that's all that matters. Why is live chat so important to you?

I've had the same issues before. I just restart the computer and it usually works.
