Yup - Crackle movie streaming. No way am I giving out my CC details no matter how good their intentions are.

What was your VPN location? Mine was set to New York but I can't see that being an issue.

I don't know, just somewhere in the US. I did have to turn off my ad blocker though.

So, the question is ..... will "signing-in" with a UK email address inhibit the US-supplied service .....

Well, that's a start ..... but I was unable to display any video controls on-screen (perhaps I should have said that ..... )

So last night, I tried again - another favourite - "Lake Placid" .....

This time, video quality was excellent and, while watching, I was idly pressing my mouse when the video controls appeared at the base of the screen .....

IIRC, I left-clicked under the video but above the taskbar - minimal (but useful) controls were displayed .....

Re: Virual Private Networks - Installation and Use

I tried "Popcorn Time" last night - a slightly different movie service:

https://popcorntime.sh/

Popcorn Time is a multi-platform, free software BitTorrent client that includes an integrated media player. The applications provide a free alternative to subscription-based video streaming services such as Netflix. Popcorn Time uses sequential downloading to stream video listed by several torrent websites, and third party trackers can also be added manually.
Downloading "Sully" took about 5 minutes - video quality was excellent and the controls were readily available .....

Re: Virual Private Networks - Installation and Use

I tried "Popcorn Time" last night but hit a snag - because it's based on a P2P service there were no seeds for the film I wanted, which, admittedly, was not a latest release.

The previous night I watched "Lost In Translation" via Crackle with no such problems.
