@team-pct even the console is empty, after another click the console also goes from white to black.
Attaching screenshot:

Here, the black screen in the background is the popcorn time interface and white screen is the console.

You should uninstall popcorn time and go look for cache folder and remove it and retry

I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times, where can I find the cache folder?


Hi, I have the same problem. Do you have a solution yet?


The Same here, there’s already a solution


for now is better if you use VLC player.

latest build have black screen too.


Hi. If the screen goes black then you may have a dedicated gpu that’s not working with PT, try right click on the ‘‘Popcorn-Time’’ desktop icon and from ‘‘Run with graphic processor’’ choose ,Integrated graphics’’.
