It has to do with the fact that https://tv-v2.api-fetch.website is down! As someone noted on Reddit:
"Tweakbox has shut down as their hosts have been ordered by Court Order to disclose details about them and Coto Movies has shut down and it appears Popcorn has too."

@TriPSs , @shahhemal780 Popcorn API https://tv-v2.api-fetch.website isn't down for android and desktop versions from popcorntime.sh.

devs here should probably look at that.

edit: Api is down for evryone, but android and desktop use the cloudflare cache

Copy link

commented Sep 11, 2019

@Persei08 the official desktop and android are working because of the Cloudflare hack, the data that is returned in that case is data from last Monday.

The Cloudflare hack is a way they use to always get the cached data from Cloudfares always online functionality.

How hard would it be to implement the same Cloudflare hack in this project?

Sounds like without Tweakbox coming back online (likely? unlikely?), access to yet another third-party mirror/cache solution, or some rad idea beyond my grasp of this, our best chance is maybe to use the Cloudflare hack and just enjoy the catalog as it exists (existed)...

What's the Cloudflare hack looking for to gain access? Is it more than User Agent? Gonna snoop around with Charles and report back if I a) find anything interesting, or b) realize how over my head I am.

@TriPSs well, I don't understand how this cloudflare hack works after all.


This said there is always the Popcorn-api source code: https://github.com/popcorn-official/popcorn-api (if someone have the balls to hosting it), the YTS.lt api, and eztv.io have a limited api (the popcorn api scrap the "show list" page to get the episodes of each shows).

There is always hope :)

Issue with this hack: It's serving cached content and since that content is not updated it will be content from last Monday for ever.

I created a pull request to workaround the issue and get cached content temporarily until someone hosts the scrapper

@Bonovox78 when you download it save it to your iCloud Drive. Once in Appdb if your a pro user you can then upload it to your Apple TV. It’s what I did for me.

Thanks, I had to export it and have got it working. Given the other versions of this are working will there be a fix noting that this version is a cached version and won’t be updated?

@Bonovox78 not sure if there will be a fix. Maybe someone can change the API to a working one but I’m not that good in Xcode unfortunately..

THANK YOU to the amazing people who fixed this... It really takes some nerve to do this while every other app is getting targeted by the industry... What puts PT apart is that it's non-profit and community based. Power to the people.

I think the next thing to do now is make sure that the API is hosted on multiple locations. No?

As long as the industrie keeps segmenting and geo-block content, piracy will continue. I can imagine if Netflix could offer the content that PT has, that we would all be happy to pay 50 bucks a month for a legal alternative. Just as a note: Since I have a Spotify premium subscription I have not even downloaded ONE illegal song... Get your shit together and bring what your audience desires... Maybe you'll make a buck or 2 along the way :).

I have checked the desktop version of PT and here I can still make a search... I was not able to do this on the previous dropout, so i'm not sure if the issue is the same as before this time. Perhaps somebody with some coding skills kan check this out?

Is there anyone who can change the API ? Perhaps use one that’s been used in let’s say the shoebox apk or mediabox ipa ?

I recently made a dump of the db (when it was live). Maybe it is time for someone to look into spinning up their own server. I can share that if someone invested is interested. At the moment, I don't have the time + resources to spin up and maintain a server for so many people. Glad to share the data dump though.

Looking at the source code of the popcorn api, it is too bad that development has stalled for nearly 2 years. I have a feeling that the era of popcorn time has come mostly to an end 😢

*** ATTENTION DEVELOPERS ***

Plan of attack :

  • Add api server url to settings in app ( priority apple tv and android )

  • run several clones of the API SERVER ON several herokus or some other servers
