Its probably not compiled for the ARM architecture. Your best bet is to try their Android version.

I managed to build Popcorn time for Odroid. I only tried it on Odroid-U3(Ubuntu 14.04.2) and it works quite well!

thank you for creating the installation and building guide!

There are some errors when doing the following steps.
I do the override files :

Change building script and node-webkit-builder

Code: Select all
override files ~/workspace/popcorn-app/Gruntfile.js and ~/workspace/popcorn-app/node_modules/grunt-node-webkit-builder/tasks/node_webkit_builder.js
Build and run application



Then there's an error when I Execute in terminal:

Code: Select all
in popcorn-app directory run: grunt build to build Popcorn-Time


odroid@odroid:~/popcorn-time-installation-guide-armv7/workspace/popcorn-app$ grunt build

/home/odroid/popcorn-time-installation-guide-armv7/workspace/popcorn-app/node_modules/grunt-node-webkit-builder/tasks/node_webkit_builder.js:146
<<<<<<< HEAD
^^
Loading "node_webkit_builder.js" tasks...ERROR
>> SyntaxError: Unexpected token <<
Warning: Task "nodewebkit" not found. Use --force to continue.

Aborted due to warnings.

could you please help to figure out how to fix it?
thank you

The closest I think you'll get to popcorntime is using the kodi popcorn time addon
https://github.com/Diblo/KODI-Popcorn-T ... /README.md

The last I checked it did work on my XU3 but it was movies only. TV series were planned to be added.

That's assuming there is still a working kodi available for the XU ? I really don't know.

The popcorn time project is down this days. I think you get this error because the make_popcorn.sh script tries to download node-webkit binaries from the unavailable address! :-(

Sorry for reviving an old thread.

I recently installed popcorn time in my xu4 following the instructions from: https://github.com/LeonardLaszlo/popcor ... uide-armv7

It works great, I can stream content to my chromecast. The only problem that I have encountered is with the movie content, since the YTS api is down no movie content is found. I found this guide to fix it:
https://www.reddit.com/r/PopCornTime/co ... r_current/

I can fix the series issue but I can't figure out how to fix the movies issue since a file named "package.nw" is needed, and the odroid version of popcorn time doesn't have this file (I think is embedded elsewhere)

As the odroid project seems abandoned I don't know if it will be a workaround.

Thanks and greetings.

I guess the file you are looking for (package.nw) is called "nw.pak" in the nw.js binaries I used making that guide, but don't take this for granted. You can try to rename the file and check if It works.

EDIT: I applied the changes to the source code and rebuilt the application. The movie API is working, but the TV Shows API not.

For TV Shows I just changed the Api end point option (from the popcorn settings) to:
https://popcornwvnbg7jev.onion.to/

I already tried to rename the file you mention, but I think it's a different thing since I also have popcorn time in a x86 linux computer and the two files are present, and the nw.pak file is exactly the same as the arm version.

Sorry to bother you Leonard, did you upload the changes to the movie API?, I only see the README updated.

Thanks a lot for your port.

I changed the Movie and TV Shows API, rebuilt the app and uploaded a working version to the installation repo. Thanks for the notice! Make sure you delete the old installation as explained in the tutorial before you install the new version.

Thanks a lot for the update, all the content is working now. Just a problem: It seems like the app isn't saving anything, such as favorites, the torrent cache directory is empty. I can't manage to see anything. I will check it is a permissions related problem

Edit: It seems it was a weird error, everithing is working fine now, even the embedded popcorn player, thanks again.
