Now There’s a Popcorn Time For Porn Too

Home > News >

Popcorn Time captured the minds of millions of movie, TV and anime pirates over the past year, but there's one group of video enthusiasts who felt left out. The porn fans. A new Popcorn Time fork named Porn Time is now aiming to fill this hole.

porntime“The Internet Is For Porn,” is a phrase commonly heard in popular culture.

While there are plenty of other uses, it’s true that the adult industries are early adopters of many Internet related technologies, from online payments to streaming services.

Porn also contributed to the early popularity of BitTorrent, where adult videos and pictures were often among the most shared files. With this in mind, it’s odd that one of the newest piracy revelations completely ignored the genre.

“How can it be, that Popcorn Time has been around for over a year and no one has made Popcorn Time for PORN? Since everyone knows that the Internet is for porn,” Porn Time developer Richard tells TF.

Faced with this short-coming, Richard decided to pick up the gauntlet and fill this gaping hole. First on his own, and later with help from several other developers. Fast forward a few weeks and the application is ready to go out to the public.

“We’re proud to officially release Porn Time, the first Popcorn Time for porn movies,” Richard says.

Porn Time is based on existing Popcorn Time code and works in a similar fashion to other forks. It uses BitTorrent under the hood and works on most popular platforms. In addition, the streams can be cast directly to the big screen with Chromecast, Airplay or DLNA.

The torrents are pulled from the Pornleech tracker but the team hopes to add more sources in the future to expand the library.

Staying true to the Popcorn Time philosophy the application is completely open source. This allows other developers to contribute, or start their own forks.

“Porn Time is released as an open source project, and we’re setting up Gitlab on our servers, since we’re pretty sure Github won’t allow us to run the project in their hub,” Richard says.

Since Porn Time relies on peer-to-peer technology, the loading speed of the clips mainly depends own how well-seeded the torrents are. But with porn, this is usually not a problem.

Update: The Popcorn4ever fork has had porn content for several months already, in addition to mainstream video. This fork sources content from various sites including KickassTorrents and The Pirate Baye as well as its own decentralized DHT/Kademlia network (NeoKad).
