Today I tried a new app that allows me to watch free movies called Popcorn Time. Originally, I was about to download a torrent of a movie from yts.am but apparently, I have not installed a torrent downloader on my laptop yet. I’m using Acer C720P Chromebook with the Deepin operating system.
My Chromebook drive is easily populated if I have to keep the movies in my SSD and it will take too much waiting if I have to wait for the torrent to be completely downloaded.
Luckily, I got my eyes on Popcorn Time and then installed it instead of my first intention when I opened the Deepin Store. No luck with Deepin Store, so I tried using:
sudo apt-get install popcorn-time
…in the Terminal. And it worked!
The setup process was easy, but I needed to go through the password setting twice (maybe it’s just me). It can also deal with torrents you already have. This is the video to explain how Popcorn Time looks:
Popcorn Time can organize both the movies we’ve watched and our next movie list. We can also connect to trakt.tv to sync our movie list, review, etc.
