DLNA is not working. Maybe they've done another inane update without bumping the version number (if they do, they should really stop, that's craziness right there).

It works perfectly, thanks a lot!! The only two issues I found here (doesn't happen on Ubuntu) are:

- that thumbnails are not shown for series and films
- Anime tab doesn't work for me (but used to work last time I checked it some weeks ago)

@neitsab That makes sense, thank you.

@Maintainers: You can remove the update-desktop-database from install file, as that is now handled by pacman hooks.

@goetzc No. Make a judgment for yourself by comparing the tone in the link you mentioned and the one from https://www.reddit.com/r/PopCornTime/comments/4bbxw4/popcorn_time_faq/, and the linked https://www.reddit.com/r/PopCornTime/comments/47o4bz/is_there_any_truth_to_the_guy_who_claims_the/d0fpicf.

The one which tries the hardest to convince, and does so by fat-fingering and calling out a conspiracy hardly ever is the right one...

Which are the news with this? Is this version controlled by the MPAA, has it malware, it it a honeypot to track users? Or are those the other ones? How can we know?

There is this reddit thread with claims that this version is untrustful, and better use the other one.

https://www.reddit.com/r/PopcornTimeCE/comments/46acve/warning_popcorntimech_owned_by_mpaa_to_track/

Maybe that version is untrustful. Who knows...

@314eter Ah thanks, hadn't thought about that! I'll keep an eye upstream then. Cheers

The pkgrel bump is to force an update. The release version is still 0.3.9, but there are frequent changes.

Hi 314eter, what's the reason for the pkgrel bump (this commit https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/commit/?h=popcorntime-bin&id=15eb232ed54452a272c79a7c0dbf0dbefa05a0d9)?

It seems pretty hard to understand whom to believe to:

This is the same fork (same github, twitter and private keys) as the one that was called popcortime on aur until it was shut down.

And popcorntime.ag took the name Popcorntime CE when it already existed, because they wanted to be confused with the popular community edition.

I think this is the least confusing name, unless there are better ideas. Popcorntime-sh would only be good until they change their domain name.
