I have just entered the world of streaming and from what I understand it is not (yet) illegal to stream programmes and films as you are not actually downloading the content when you watch it streamed. Does this mean that when you stream a movie it does not leave anything on your hard drive???? I feel slightly uneasy about seeing this stuff on Kodi and although it is the person who has uploaded it to wherever Kodi finds it is the one who is infringing the rules I was concerned about what footprint it leaves on my computer?

Would some knowledgeable person in this area kindly explain please?

Cheers

DWD

If you're worried just run Ccleaner at it's highest cleaning setting afterwards. I think it overwrites it 35 times :thumbright:

You are correct though in the fact it's not illegal just now. I read an article on the matter a few months ago.

Alternatively if you don't want it on your PC I'd advise buying an android or Firebox and run it off your TV. It's great and I regularly watch YouTube tutorials on my TV

Yes, I have a Firestick which I will set Kodi up on, I guess that is too small to hold much memory of downloads.

I just wondered what the technical side of this is on my laptop disc drive memory???????

SFAIA when you stream a film/programme whatever the only evidence left on your 'puter will be a cookie from wherever you are streaming from. May also add a file to internet history (both clearable with CC Cleaner) As a matter of interest the reason you can "stream" these films/programmes is that different countries have different copyright laws. In the UK for instance you are not allowed to re-distribute a film that you have bought in whatever media. In *some countries* you effectively "own" all rights to the film once you have purchased it and can share it with whoever you like.

I wouldn't worry too much DWD, There are lots of empty threats from these company's but they never follow up. I downloaded movies for years without any recourse. Streaming is a whole different ball game now where you don't actually download the movie you only watch it on someone else's server the have given you access too.

I'm glad he did. At some point earlier this year the law was changed and it is no longer legal to stream from those sites (in the UK).

The good news is that they (whoever they are) are not after the end user, more the people selling the Kodi boxes with the software pre installed.

The internet is not policed as effectively as it could be, police are under resourced and don't have the time to check what Wine~o is streaming or not at any given time.

The main upshot though is that the stream providers are being shut down, although new ones are appearing to take their place...

Streaming (and something related) My younger sister has moved out to Oman. She's not allowed to use FaceTime, Skype or any other software programs to live video chat with us , back here in the UK... However , there is a loophole,,, By going through a proxy server, she can. (still illegal, in Oman as far as I know) :wink: :wink:

It's quite easy to get a VPN and choose a proxy server. It also stops the internet police snooping what you're doing. I use IPvanish and costs about a fiver a month.

Wine o you're quite right it, the law did change although it's still to be tested in the courts. Many streaming sites closed down but as one closes another one opens and I've noticed no difference in content.

It was hardly surprising considering the amount of idiots openly posting about the pre-loaded boxes they were selling. They were waving this in the face of the internet police and Rupert and his Tory pals had to act.

You can still legally buy these boxes and it's quite easy to load it up yourself.

Hahaha I didn't even notice the date on this - just trying to engage in what's been posted. Not my fault no one posts on here regularly :error:

Tbh I can see the people who host streaming running into problems, but so many people do stream that I can't realistically see at this moment in time how they'd actually police it.
