Popcorn Time is a multi-platform, open-source BitTorrent client that has an integrated media player. The program is a free alternative to subscription-based video streaming services such as Netflix. Popcorn Time used sequential downloading to play copies of films listed by the website YTS, (yts.re, formerly YIFY) (although other trackers can be added and used manually).

The Popcorn Time interface presents thumbnails and film titles in a manner similar to Netflix. This list of media can be searched and browsed by genres or categories. When a user click on one of the titles, the film is downloaded via the bit torrent protocol. As with other BitTorrent clients, Popcorn Time seed the torrent to others in the bit torrent swarm.
