What comes after torrent?

February 23, 2015 Leave a comment

Today I found an excellent application called Popcorn Time. Are you tired of waiting 10 minutes for your torrent to be fully downloaded? Watch movies and TV Shows instantly! Popcorn Time streams movies and TV shows from torrents.

You can select quality and subtitles too! Pure awesomeness IMO.

I tried it under Manjaro and it’s available in the AUR. Under Ubuntu just download the archive and it contains a binary executable. And, they also have an Android client!

Popcorn Time uses the following torrent trackers: er.sty//:ptth (HD movies at the smallest file size); hc.vtze//:sptth (TV shows), moc.nahcihurah.www//:ptth (anime).

As I read it in /r/popcorntime, “you can ctrl+v paste magnet links in popcorn time or drag torrent files into it if it doesn’t have the show you want. It will take any torrent, it just only displays YTS and eztv”. Cool.

Update (20160104)
The original PopcornTime seems to be dead. But it has a community edition, which seems to have the same functionality: https://popcorntimece.tk/download/ . Reddit announcement here. The Manjaro package is called popcorntime-community.

There are several CBR viewers for Linux. I tried MComix and it’s quite nice.

(It is written in Python, BTW.)

Using several Firefox instances with different profiles

February 12, 2015 Leave a comment

If you want to use several Firefox instances with different profiles, read this post.

In short:

  • close Firefox
  • Start Firefox Profile Manager (firefox -P) and create a new profile. Give a specific name to the new profile, e.g. “NewProfile“.
  • Launch Firefox normally. It will start the default (old) profile.
  • Start another Firefox instance with the new profile: firefox -P NewProfile -no-remote
