Okay, so I was going to watch movies on Popcorn time but apparentely I can't. Weird, the app just not downloading movies. When I go into the screen to download it, it just spins the loading thing for like 2 minutes and then goes back to the selection screen. I'm not sure why it's doing this and it'd be great if I could get some help. Thanks.

I downloaded Popcorn Time today, and it worked perfectly the first time. Then later on when I tried to watch something, all I can see is a black screen while the sound plays in the background. I tried playing it through VLC media player and it worked just fine. I have tried un-installing it like other posts have suggested but nothing seems to work.

But I have no clue how to use or run Popcorn time. Do I open my torrent client and download a movie and then it gets going? or do I have to open it? If I have to open it, how do I do that, I opened the dash and tried clicking on it but nothing happened.Please help me!! :D
