Isohunt launches IsoPlex – free movie streaming service like Popcorn Time

Posted at 16 June 2014 11:34 CEST by Jan Willem Aldershoff

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.

    and the industries will again go absolutely f***ing ape shit! this is going to become more normal with more services showing this stuff every week. the ridiculous thing is, the industries could have done the exact same thing, months and months ago, charging a small fee that people would pay (until the usual thing happened and the industries got oh, so greedy!') but not only didn't, they kicked up when another source was available, doing their usual trick and go running to government (the 'in place' now seems to be the thick f*****s in the UK!') to get it shut down without any attempt at all to compete by opening their own site. the biggest problem for the industries is their total lack of trying to compete, believing that they must have the only option and all others must be crushed! and i mean crushed too because regardless of whatever bullshit they put out, not a single studio or person connected to the studio or any 'star' has suffered because of downloading of music or movies, but the ordinary individuals they have targeted have had their lives and their family's lives completely ruined. even worse, some have lost their lives because of the industries! they dont give a toss and nor do the governments that have aided the industries! is it any wonder they are despised to hell and back??

      (sigh)

      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.
