Isohunt launches IsoPlex – free movie streaming service like Popcorn Time
Torrent and P2P search index website The Isohunt released a free movie streaming service called IsoPlex today. The service appears to be built on the same technology as Popcorn Time, a free movie streaming website which was shutdown due to fear of legal complications.
IsoPlex is available for Windows, Mac and Linux and offers movies in Full HD, HD, SD and low quality. According to the developers the service provides access to more than a million movies. Most movies from the ‘Piratebay Top 10 most downloaded movies’ are available, although the search engine of the software seems to be very picky on the search terms.
The software works over the torrent network and doesn’t require the full movie to be downloaded first. After searching for a movie and picking the quality, the software is starts the streaming process.
The client for Windows is 62.3 MB unzipped and nearly 30 MB zipped. So far the software seems to be closed source but built on open source components.

It seems more or less like a popcorn time copy. It uses the node modules peerflix (https://github.com/mafintosh/peerflix), read-torrent (https://github.com/mafintosh/read-torrent) and socket-io (http://socket.io) for example. You can read the source code if you download the mac version and open Contents/Resources/app.nw inside the Isoplex package. But it is a good question why it is not on github.
