Video file can't be downloaded for now.

I keep getting the same message for every movie/episode I try to watch. It says "0 Kb/s" and "0/0 Peers" for ages while trying to load to movie/episode, then after a while it says "Video file can't be downloaded for now. Please try again later".
I have tried again at different times of day for the past few days and even deactivated my firewall to see would that help but it didn't.

I am using Popcorn time 6.1.0 on Windows 8.1.

Basic solution is to select another torrent in the list.

Same for me. It doesn't pass the "getting metadata" on my PC (Windows 10). But it works fine on my android TV, in the same network.
