Popcorn Time is an amazing online service that allows users to stream movies online free of charge instead of downloading them via Torrent services. Basically, Popcorn Time allows users to instantly watch torrents in a Netflix-like manner, a service that’s dangerous for copyright content owners, as you can’t be punished for streaming illegal movies as you can for downloading and storing them. However, Popcorn Time had a short life, and was quickly removed, before resurfacing again.

Those Popcorn Time users who would like to use a similar service can check out a similar product called IsoPlex, which uses a technology similar to Popcorn Time.

“It’s an application for your PC or Mac where you can find and stream your favorite movies with no need to download them to your hard drive! It works completely standalone, without torrent clients or other additional software. You don’t need to keep any huge movie files on your computer,” the company wrote on its website. “We always think about what the future of torrents and online sharing can be and we think that Isoplex is a perfect solution!”

Isohunt offers IsoPlex clients for Windows, Mac and Linux, which then allows users to stream videos online without downloading the full movies on their hard drive. The service is available free of charge, streams movies in Full HD, HD, SD and low quality, and offers access to more than a million movies, Myce reports.
