VPN + PopcornTime

edit:

https://popcorn-time.ga/build/

So PopCorn Time has been around for about a decade. It was an open-source european project that "streams" torrents rather than downloading them. This circumvented the laws from about 2012-2015, before the Americans stronged armed the Europeans to change their laws. The non-profit/company behind the effort dissolved, but the project has lived on through Github and other means of source tracking since.

For awhile there were really shady versions from China floating around that were malicious, recently the only officially stable build is the .ga version.

You can find the source code here: https://github.com/popcorn-official

Recently the last Western team shut down their development, however Russia has continued hosting the source and APIs. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-01-04/popcorn-time-alternative-is-hard-to-find-as-app-shuts-down

Popcorn Time accesses torrents. That's why you need a VPN unless you like getting letters. I prefer Kodi with addons that access torrents through Real Debrid. RD downloads the torrent and then streams them to you. Top quality streams, no torrent trail, no downloading. Streaming is completely legal so no copy-write violations and no letters. RD costs a dime per day.

Yes, I use Kodi with Real-Debrid. It works nicely. My favorite add-on is "The Crew".

Can you recommend a guide for getting started with Kodi + Real-Debrid?

6
imnotdeadyet 6 points ago +6 / -0

Go to https://www.firesticktricks.com. They have links to best "add-ons". How to set up the Real-Debrid (I would do this last), and how to install Kodi. It is a bit of trial and error. I had to uninstall and reinstall a few times to get it right. I used the older version of Kodi 5.1.65. It works great. They have a bunch of links and I would read through it before you install anything. The fist thing to do is to jailbreak the Firestick and install a VPN. I used Express VPN. It provides the information on how to procure the VPN. I actually got it using a code from Dan Bongino and got 3 free months.

NotProgCensored 2 points ago +2 / -0

From your browser type in kodi (dot) tv That's the official Kodi source. If using a fire stick you might have to use Downloader, just voice search for it. After installing Kodi search for Best addons for kodi 2022 and you'll find a dozen sites all listing the same ones. Or do the same search in YT. Install Seren, The Crew and The Magic Dragon. The last two are in repos that are full of other addons for sports etc. Edit: Probably best to watch a YT video on How to Install and Setup Kodi 19.4 just to see how it works and how to set it up.

2
Lowersidecustoms 2 points ago +2 / -0

I’m sure others will say kodi is worth it, but I tried it and was unreliable, pain in the ass to keep working. I haven’t used in a couple years, but if you’re not very tech savvy it’s going to be a nightmare. For me it was a headache, had on 3 firesticks and felt like an IT person with the amount of maintenance they all needed to keep working. I considered selling pre configured sticks but decided not to because they’d randomly stop working and were a pain to update

same here, started on Kodi. it is old school now. much better setups available. it works better on an android box but worked good on the Pi. but as stated, PI's are way expensive now, you can buy a mini computer for the same price with much better performance/features.

my Pi's mainly run MAME and Nintendo arcade emulators.

What is newsgroup?

1
yummy_yumm_yumms 1 point ago +1 / -0

Here's an explanation on it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usenet_newsgroup

They've been around since the beginning but most ISP's block the good content. To get started you can google the following things:

  1. Find an indexing site to get the NZB files from. Here's a good reddit link that has some listed.

  2. Download a newsreader, there are a bunch but I use SABnzbd.

  3. Sign up for usenet server access, there are tons of providers out there that offer it, so make sure you get a good price. I pay around 5 bucks a month for unlimited with a few bonus servers that I can connect to for extended retention periods.

  4. Enter your server credentials into the newsreader.

  5. Add a NZB to the newsreader to download and then watch it top out your connections download speeds! :)

Also, when you're setting up the newsreader, use an SSL connection and your ISP can only see that you are connecting to a server but not see the content being downloaded so a VPN is not needed.

Millerlife777 1 point ago +1 / -0

TommyLasordasBallBag 10 points ago +11 / -1

Generates a 3% ROI in one day than plummets 33% after close... this is the elite traders lining their pockets. Plebs see a 1% increase and decide to "buy in" thinking its going up, only to have the elite dump after they come up millions ahead in a day. See this all the time with recognizable companies. Nike had a similar trajectory a few times. Same with pepsico and FedEx. This is why day trading will never make you rich if you're buying only stocks that you recognize. If you're investing for the future, this is a good time to buy a recognizable brand (maybe not so much with Netflix, as they are just another redundant streaming service)...

imnotdeadyet 4 points ago +4 / -0

You need to "Jailbreak" the firestick to load a VPN. www.firestickstricks.com is a great site to lean how to jailbreak the firestick, to load the Real-Debrid tool, the different add-ons to load, etc. It took me several times to load and remove and load again. They provide step by step directions with screen prints, but you need to check to see if the url is still correct. Sometimes they have an revised URL listed after the screen shot so you need to read ahead to avoid any issues. I had to go with a Kodi version prior to the current one to get it to work properly.

Makes me want to convert one tv to Amazon fire stick just to try it

1
imnotdeadyet 1 point ago +1 / -0

Yes, I think the Amazon firestick is about $40 dollars. Its worth it. I would get the Real-Debrid. Kodi will work without it, but you will only get 720p resolution. With Real-Debrid you can get up to 4K. I recommend just doing 1080p because the download speed at 4K can cause the picture to freeze while it is loading. Also, when you select on a torrent, it may be in a foreign language. No big deal, just click on another until you get one in English. My favorites are Magnetol, Lime Torrents and Torlock.

For a lot of companies it appears they actually had no solid choice. The banks they relied on to finance the region (including Ukraine in some instances) have locked it all down.

Now, is that what happened here? Not sure. But just know that the banks and financial mechanisms themselves are being bastards and a lot of companies (in particular smaller ones) are being forced to be unable to do business like that.

It’s a fine business model if you’re creating limited run series with a defined end point. But they’re trying to do “prestige” long form storytelling but don’t have the patience to ride it out.

I'd be extremely surprised if the Russian market had anything to do with it. I'm not an expert on Russia but I've worked there several times. In every train station, every mall, every shopping center and on many city streets you will have any movie, TV series or software known to man burned onto a DVD or thumbdrive in a few minutes for barely the cost of a blank DVD.

Viewer01 16 points ago +16 / -0

The peak was six months ago at 700$/share. What we are seeing now is that big tech has finally ran out of growth avenues, and people are fleeing from them.

What no one is talking about is that many of the tech giants have lost hundreds of billions in stock value recently. Many of these companies were seen as blue chips, and had loans associated with them. That collateral is now wiped out, and people's potential to borrow has been greatly reduced. You don't just shave off 100 billion in value over night without it having longer lasting effects.

Most people's soon to be house down payment was tied up in stocks like FB and NFLX, and when they lose 25%, that prices them out of whatever they were intending to buy.

Lol thanks. This economy and market are wild. I paid cash for a rental here recently. Just trying to buy something the fed can’t print out of thin air.

However that’s the folly of tech companies. It’s near impossible for a tech company to pivot from growth to value. Apple has done it, but so many others just produce massive growth and then flame out and fall back to earth. I tend to stay away from them for that reason.

2
PocketPosse 2 points ago +3 / -1

Stocks are insane. The chances of finding a truly undervalued stock before the big guys is slim to none and they still have ways of bullying you out of your stake. The rest is a game of "find the bigger idiot" where you buy a stock that you know is overvalued and try to sell it at a profit to a dumber person with margin who thinks there is an even dumber person who is somehow rich AND doesnt understand fundamentals or leverage risks.

Stocks don't raise 3% in open trading and drop 33% after hours unless people with inside knowledge want to soften the blow.

Autist_of_Kiev 6 points ago +6 / -0

Releasing bad news after market close is pretty common to let the aftermarket go crazy in hopes that market buyers will jump in to buy the dip and start the day with momentum.

They forecasted 2.5m new subs and lost 2m, they were fucked one way or another. I’m sure someone with insider knowledge made bank, but this doesn’t seem like a typical pump and dump.

Then that would explain a 3% rise before the report came out without it needing to be some insider trading thing.

Besides, they don't do as much insider trading anymore, they use puts and shorts for that because they are easier to hide. I'm sure someone with knowledge made a killing on the shorts and we may never hear about it.

The five precious and semi-precious metals any portfolio should contain:

Gold, silver, copper, brass, and lead.

4
Geralt_of_Rivia1 4 points ago +4 / -0

Precious metals are retarded for 95+% of people because they are not investments, and most of that 5% are not even considering it because it takes a specific mindset for it to even be a good idea then. They are only a store of wealth, they dont actually create anything, and very few people are in a position to want a store of wealth. Or a way of getting around inheritance taxes, but that is irrelevant to 99% of people.

And it isnt a hedge against volatility risk because it is highly illiquid at anything close to its true value

Sure, if you have 2 million in your retirement accounts or have maxed out a IRA + solo 401k, go for it. Get somewhere between 10k and 100k in gold as part of a go bag. But it isnt an investment, it is a store of wealth.

0
KILLARY4PRISON 0 points ago +2 / -2

It's also not even a really good store of wealth. Inflation is raging and gold/silver is like the only thing in this economy not getting more expensive. PMs are just as sketchy as anything else.

Geralt_of_Rivia1 2 points ago +2 / -0

It isnt there for normal situations, it is there to truly start over - fleeing the country during a case of civil war for instance. It guarantees that you have wealth that is truly yours. Stocks, bonds, real estate, etc can go to nothing, but gold you have in hand.

No they have not. Bonds are there as a hedge of volatility risk. Equity is used to as the hedge for inflation risk

3
d_lock 3 points ago +3 / -0

Bonds have a consistent return, but are bad investments against inflation. Remember that the best way to understand return on investment w.r.t. inflation is to use the real interest rate. Subtract that 8% inflation rate from your 0.81% bond inflation, then consider if -7.19% is a good ROI.

As bassackwards as it sounds, getting a loan is a better investment than bonds right now.

Also recently announced a price increase to $19.99/mo I believed. I don't know what it costs now because we use our in-law's account so our 2 year old can watch Cocomelon.

5
Bragg 5 points ago +5 / -0

“Cocomelon is so hyperstimulating that it actually acts as a drug, as a stimulant. The brain gets a hit of dopamine from screen-time and it seems that the stronger the 'drug' aka the level of stimulation a show delivers, the stronger the 'hit.

This leads to 1) the children experiencing symptoms of addiction and withdrawal, obviously leaving them completely dysregulated, and 2) a general discomfort in the speed of everyday life. The more they watch the show, the more the brain begins to expect this kind of stimulation. This makes it impossible for them to play creatively and without entertainment.”

Children have much shorter attention spans than adults do. Therefore, children’s shows are designed with this in mind, offering simple plot lines and short scenes. However, many believe Cocomelon takes this practice to an extreme. With quick scenes (lasting no more than 2 seconds), fast camera movements, dancing subtitles, and several sound effects playing at once (music, talking, laughing), Cocomelon could be overstimulating for some children.

Basically your kids are guaranteed to have ADHD when growing up.
