Hello all. I see this topic posted regularly but it seems that no definite answer is in sight. With regard to movies like Red Sparrow, EQ2, Tomb Raider and Death Wish specifically, once you have downloaded the movie it requires a codec of sorts. It reverts to a site where you must apparently register etc.

Please lets not refer all and sundry back to old posts and FAQs etc etc.

Lets just fix the bug or problem or whatever needs to be done, let us do it, but do inform us accordingly.

If it cannot be resolved then let us also confirm such so downloads can then occur elsewhere.

It is quite annoying when one downloads a file and for some weird reason it does not play.

Thanks for the correct answer in sorting the matter out (in advance).

Regards.

Mario.

Hello.
If you find such a resource, please share it and do not install any codecs suggested.
It is improper torrent and will be deleted.
Thanks.

Hi Team,
What action has been taken against the people who uploads these movies. Which require xvid.
It's very annoying if you found out it requires xvid.

Can you please. Allow comment section in app so that we can put review about the print and quality. If we want to report our experience other should know by good bad symbols or somthing simile.
Hope you can work. It out.

Regards,
Adil Sheikh

I wondered the same thing about this practice, requiring Xvid in order to watch my movie; as is the case with Jurassic Park Fallen Kingdom. I don't understand the reasoning for something like this to be used on this site. Forced enrollment into a subscription which requires your CC info, one which you will have to go back to and cancel before they automatically begin charging you a monthly service fee...all to just watch a movie...really? I'm sorry, but doesn't that kinda defeat the purpose of why this site was created? Am I wrong?? Maybe someone get's kickbacks for this setup...after all the entire Popcorn Time viewing world is their target.
