Popcorn Time on PC
Popcorn Time on PC

The article is all about the best Popcorn Time VPN on each platform. When you have a free software equivalent to Netflix, then no can’t say no. Popcorn Time is a great tool, but the downloading technology it uses is torrenting. Developers consider torrenting as not safe. When you torrent, you seed which means you are letting everyone know that I’m sitting right here downloading content from the internet. The article will explain the best Popcorn Time VPN on PC and Android.

Popcorn Time while downloading consumes the maximum speed possible and some of the VPN clients can’t support high speed downloading or if they do then only the paid versions. The article explains the top free VPN client for Popcorn Time which allows high speed downloading. First, we will enclose the best Popcorn Time VPN on PC and then on Android. Before we begin, let’s find out what VPN and torrenting is? In simple English.

What is torrenting

Torrent Example
Torrent Example

A file-sharing system based on peer-to-peer (P2P) technology. The technology allows people to share files. There is no limit on how many people can join. The more people join the speed they get. In simple words, a torrent cuts a big file into small pieces and rather than only you downloading everyone is sharing that file. Things go wrong when you torrent. The torrent file you download always keeps track of who is downloading which part of that file and what is the download location, which hackers use to steal your data. The software like BitTorrent and uTorrent are famous for downloading torrents from the internet.

What is VPN

What is VPN Example
What is VPN Example

The virtual private network is an encrypted protocol. VPN adds an extra layer of security on your network. In simple English, VPN encrypts all the data you send from your computer. While torrenting you download and upload which means you send the data. A user should not be worried about other users, but hackers are looking for these kinds of people all the time. The first thing a VPN client does is changing your location and IP Address to the country you select. The second thing it does is encrypt your data so the other users can’t read. When VPN is enabled, even your service provider can’t track you down.

An old friend who has supported me a lot. UltraSurf is a free ad-free VPN client for PC and Android. It comes with some amazing tools. You don’t need to install the software on the PC, and it is only 3.4 MB. When you open the software, it connects to the best server by default.

The options menu comes with options including HotKeys, history, port, proxy settings etc. When started it opens a web page called “UltraSurf Top Stories” for advertising purposes. Another great feature is when you exit it asks to close the browsers before closing software. UltraSurf is one of the top Popcorn Time VPNs. Check out the software in-action.

VLC Media Player for Android Review – Tech is Tech Reviews

VLC Media Player by Nizar
VLC Media Player – by Nizar

Lying in my bed watching a video in VLC on my Note 9 brought me to my website and start writing about VLC Media Player. There is no doubt that VLC is one of the great video players for Android but what exactly VLC Media Player can offer and when you should choose VLC? The article is the ultimate review of VLC for Android.

Facts about VLC

Let’s see some facts about VLC in general.

  1. It’s been over fifteen years the name of VideoLAN exists.
  2. Over 700 contributions have recorded.
  3. Over three billion downloads have been recorded.

Interface & Menu

VLC Media Player
VLC Media Player

All the videos are there when you open VLC. On the top left, we have the menu button which includes options like audio, directories, history, about etc. You can search for video and audio songs by tapping on the search button. VLC has a feature of restoring the last playing video by tapping on the button next to the search bar. The second left button will help you sort out the videos by name and length. The last one is to refresh the player and change equaliser settings. The button on the bottom right is to play the first video.

VLC Media Player for Android

Tutorial

VLC is a simple but advanced media player. That’s why I could not stop myself writing a review of VLC for Android. The buttons show us what we can do while watching a video. The first three are invisible, and the rest can be accessed by touching anywhere on the screen.

Check out: 5 YouTube Video Downloaders

Buttons

  1. You can seek by swiping left and right anywhere on the screen.
  2. You can change the brightness by swiping up and down on the left side of the screen. On Android, it requires you to give permission to change the brightness.
  3. You can change the volume by swiping left and right on the right side on the screen.
  4. The first button on the menu is lock/unlock. You can lock the screen with one touch. Of course, you will have to unlock by touching on the same button again.
  5. The second left button is for audio and subtitles. You can select the audio track, subtitles, choose a different subtitle file and download subtitles which goes online and then finds the subtitles.
  6. The third option is for pausing and resuming the video.
  7. The fourth one is packed with a wide range of options.

    Video Options - VLC
    Video Options – VLC
  8. The second option is the playback speed.
  9. You can set up the timer to help you stop at the right time.
  10. The third option helps you go anywhere in the video. Also called seek faster option. You can set the time and video will start playing from that time.
  11. The fourth button is the equaliser settings.
  12. The fifth one is called background video. It converts your video into audio so you can close VLC and do other things.
  13. The sixth button is for subtitles delay, which I find helpful when there is a difference in audio and subtitle time.
  14. The seventh one is the audio delay button.
  15. You can enable the pop-up view. With that view, there will be a small video pop up on the screen.
  16. The ninth option is for repeating. If you have selected only one video, then it would only go from zero to one.
  17. The tenth one enables digital audio output. I don’t know what the option does, but it is something to try.
  18. The last button on the screen is the screen ratio. You can change the video size with this button.

Audio

VLC Media Player Tutorials for Audio
VLC Media Player Tutorials for Audio

VLC also supports audio files. You can play any extensions. It supports the most common and the rear ones. It quickly syncs the audio files in your device and then shows you tips about the audio player and playlist. The notification for VLC is like YouTube where you have to tap on the cross “x” button to remove the notification. The audio player has improved a lot, and it is my favourite player on Android so far.

In conclusion

I hope the review for VLC Media Player helped you choose which app to download for your videos. Which app do you use for watching videos and audio songs? Please let me know in the comments below so everyone reading this article can easily choose a video player. You can also check out the app on the Google Play Store from here.

Pros

  • Unique design.
  • Dentex YouTube downloader can convert the videos into MP3.

Cons

  • It downloads a plugin to download the videos.

Not very good apps

I also tested WonTube, NewPipe, TubeGod, Vuclip, TubeX, YouTube Downloader for Android, YT3 YouTube Downloader for Android, and VidMate, but those apps either ask for sensitive permissions like accounts info, device identity and get access to contacts, or do not download the videos at all. I would recommend you to download one of the above YouTube video downloaders for Android to download the YouTube videos securely.

In conclusion

By asking for sensitive permissions, apps are stealing your data and selling to other companies. Always keep yourself away from these apps. I hope the post best YouTube video downloaders helped. Please feel free to share your views and let me know so we can discuss more. Also, if you know any other app, please inform me.
