Download And Installation Process
If you will look for the app in the official windows apps store then you will find nothing. The reason is that the app uses torrent as a source to stream & download videos which makes the app illegal in most of the regions.
So if you want to download the app to your windows device then you have to directly download the Popcorn Time windows file from the official source and then install it to your device.
To download the app file you can visit the official Popcorn Site or download from the below link. And you do not need to worry, we downloaded and added the official Popcorn Time file here.
Once the download is finished, just tap on the downloaded file. It may show you a warning message that you are installing from an unknown source or it can be a virus. Just ignore the messages and continue to get the instruction for the installation process.
Just follow the instructions and you are done.
How To Download Videos In Windows?
You can not download videos in windows. The android version supports the download option in the app but you will not find any download option in the windows version.
I do not know why, but it is a fact that there is no option to download videos in the windows version of Popcorn Time.
Even in the Mac version, the app lets you get the Magnet link. With the magnet link, you can download the video with a torrent downloader. But in the windows version of the app, there is no option to get the magnet link too.
So sadly you are unable to download videos in windows through Popcorn Time.
