This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://linuxconfig.org/how-to-install-popcorn-time-movie-player-on-debian-9-stretch-linux
I’m receiving the following error after attempting to launch PopcornTime through the console;
bash: ./Popcorn-Time: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error
My understanding is that this often indicates that either the 32 or 64bit is wrong. However this is the case every time I try this process regardless of the architecture.
I’m using a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ (raspbian)
i thing i got everything right, but when i try to run popcorn-time (trough terminal command) i get this error:
popcorn-time: error while loading shared libraries: libnw.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
don’t know what this is…
solved,on italy is blocked!
have this error:
sudo wget -qO- https://get.popcorntime.sh/build/Popcorn-Time-0.3.10-Linux-64.tar.xz | sudo tar Jx -C /opt/popcorn-time [sudo] password for ettore: xz: (stdin): File format not recognized tar: Child returned status 1 tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

This is generally a mixup between 32bits and 64bits versions. If the line for 64bits don’t work for you, try the 32bits version.
