Popcorn Time Now “Impossible” to Shut Down

Last month one of the most popular Popcorn Time forks ran into trouble. Out of the blue Time4popcorn.eu had its domain name suspended by the EURid registry. […] he problems with EURid showed that the domain name was a weak link. The fork quickly moved to a .se domain and over the past several weeks the developers have been working hard to resolve the vulnerability. With the latest 5.0 beta release today they should be able to withstand a domain suspension. […] As of now Popcorn Time still appears to rely on some central servers, which may not be truly “unstoppable”. In the future, however, the fork hopes to distribute all data via P2P transfers. – Ernesto,TorrentFreak

Popcorn Time Under “Legal Investigation,” Switches Domain

Resolving the matter, if possible at all, would require the fork to show proof of identity. This complicated matters even further and the developers therefore decided to permanently move to a new domain name. From today the Time4Popcorn name will be dropped as the fork is switching to the new Popcorn-time.se domain name, hoping that this won’t be such an easy target. […] The domain troubles haven’t gone unnoticed by other Popcorn Time forks either. The Time4Popcorn version used to be the number one search result but this spot now goes to PopcornTime.io, the fork that initially took over from the original developers. – Ernesto,TorrentFreak

Popcorn Time Stops Working After Domain Suspension

One of the most-used Popcorn Time forks has lost control of its domain name. Time4popcorn.eu was suspended by the EURid registry this afternoon and as a result millions of users can no longer use the application. The developers have already relocated to a new domain and hope to resolve the issue quickly. […] As a result Popcorn Time’s website is no longer loading. However, what’s even worse for those who use the fork is that the application itself also stopped working as it requires the domain to load the user interface. The developers quickly switched the site over to time4popcorn.com, but it will take some time to update the application. […] The issues with EURid show that the domain name is a weak link. This is problematic, especially for an application that claims it “will never be taken down.” The developers realize this and are working to resolve the vulnerability. – Ernesto,TorrentFreak
