Popcorn Time , the popular torrent streaming program that has revolutionized the world , has started to show an error message to users who try to access the catalog of movies from this application. Under the message of " Error loading data, try again later ... ", many users have encountered the situation of not being able to access the catalog of films (on the other hand, the series does work). But, far from being an alarming situation, Popcorn Time has already clarified that it is a temporary error . And we show you how to fix it.
As we can read in the official Popcorn Time forums (we are talking about the popcorntime.io extension ), the 0.3.7-2 version of Popcorn Time is not showing the movie catalog since last June 30 . The origin of this problem is in the servers of Trakt.tv , the service that Popcorn Time uses to show the movies, and the developers of this platform are already working to solve the error. Meanwhile, to solve the error when loading the Popcorn Time data, it is only necessary to install the beta version of this program , and the steps to follow are as follows:
- We enter the page of beta versions of Popcorn Time .
- In the center of the screen, under the title of " Compile #XXX (where" X "are numbers)", we will see that different links appear. The first group of these links is organized under the heading of " Generated artifacts ", and if we look at the end of the name of each file, we will see that each one is oriented towards a different operating system. In the case that we have a Windows computer , the file we have to click on is the one with the name " Popcorn-Time-0.3.7-2-1b7792871-Win-Setup.exe ".
- By clicking on this link, the download of an executable file will automatically begin.
- Once the download has finished, click on the executable file that we have downloaded (" Popcorn-Time-0.3.7-2-1b7792871-Win-Setup.exe ") and proceed to its installation. What we will be installing is a beta version of Popcorn Time that solves the problem of the movies, and although it is a beta (that is, a version that is not yet final), its operation is stable and we will not notice any difference with respect to the version we had before.
The Popcorn Time team is already working to definitively solve the error when loading the movie data, although even today ( July 9 ) the version that is announced on the main page does not incorporate the correction of this error . Therefore, if we plan to install this program for the first time, it is best to download the trial version, which has corrected the error in loading the movie database.
