Showbox For PC Guide

In this showbox for pc guide we will be using the now popular BlueStacks Android emulator or Google Chromes Arc Welder extension to install and run Showbox on your Windows 7, 8.1 or 10 PC. The Showbox app is an ad supported, Android only app that allows you to stream the latest & greatest movies and tv shows to your mobile device for free. By the very nature of it being an android only app however, there are a few additional steps required to get showbox working on your Windows pc. Not to worry though, I’ve simplified the process as much as possible in the guide below and included plenty of helpful screenshots for every step of the process! For those of you who are looking for help setting up showbox on your apple devices, make sure to checkout out my guide on how to setup showbox on your iphone & ipad.

Frequently Asked Questions:


What is Showbox?

Showbox is a free app that allows you to stream or download your favorite tv shows or movies. While it is only technically available on the android platform via a manual .apk file install, there are many clever solutions that allow you to install and run the Android app on nearly any device.

What is BlueStacks

Bluestacks is an android operating system emulator. It basically allows you to run a virtual android mobile device on your Windows computer. Great for developers or gamers who are looking to play mobile applications on a (much) larger screen.

What Does the Arc Welder Extension Do?

The Arc Welder Chrome extension allows you to install and run android applications on any system that can run chrome! Allowing users that were previously unable to access android applications due to their operating system to finally access android apps. This includes Chrome OS, Windows, Macs & Linux.

What is an .apk file?

A .apk file is essentially an install file for the android operating system. Just like Windows computers have .exe and Mac users have .dmg files, The Android OS uses .apk files (often in the form of apps) to install software.

Which is better? Bluestacks or Arc Welder?

While Bluestacks is always evolving and adding new features beyond just acting as an android emulator, at the end of the day they both serve the same function. Both platforms allow you to run Android apps on a non-android device. So I wouldn’t say that one is necessarily better than the other, it often simply comes down to what system you are running.

Bluestacks is a great option for Windows users, while Arc Welder allows you to run the Showbox apk on any system that can run Chrome.

Why can't I find Showbox in the app store?

Many people have commented that they cannot find the app within the app store, which is completely normal. You have to install the application manually using the appropriate .apk file as detailed above.

What's the latest version of Showbox?

As of today (7/18/2016) – The latest version of the Showbox apk is v4.65.

I Have Windows <insert version here>. Will it work on my computer?

Since Chrome & Bluestacks are both capable of operating on all current Windows operating systems, Showbox is able to be installed and run successfully on all Windows machines I’ve tested personally. Since we are running on platform independent software, Showbox should work on all Windows machines.

Since Chrome & Bluestacks are both capable of operating on all current Windows operating systems, Showbox is able to be installed and run successfully on all Windows machines I’ve tested personally. Since we are running on platform independent software, Showbox should work on all Windows machines.

How do I access downloaded files?

For a detailed breakdown on how to access and transfer your downloaded files in Bluestacks, checkout our tutorial.

I'm having a problem and need help troubleshooting...

It’s not uncommon to run into bugs or display issues because both the Showbox app file and their supporting platforms for setting up Showbox on PC are constantly getting updated! Fortunately, many issues are often resolved simply by updating to the latest version of the Showbox apk file. (as of this writing that is version 4.65)

If you are having a problem getting Showbox to run or display properly I urge everyone to start by updating either your Bluestacks or Arch Welder software and updating your Showbox app. If updating everything doesn’t resolve your particular issue, I would then go ahead and un-install and re-install everything and start from scratch. If your issue persists, it may be related to your display driver. If you are encountering a green or black screen when attempting to play or stream a video file, go ahead and update your display driver to the latest version.

If none of the above issues resolve your issue, keep in mind that Showbox is a very popular application and their servers may be over-loaded or under going maintenance. Sometimes all it requires is for you to be patient and try again in a few hours. If you’ve gone more than 24 hours and are still not able to get a working version of showbox, you may have to wait for the developers to update to the latest version to resolve whatever compatability problems you are encountering.

In the mean time, you may have better luck with Movie Box. The basic install & setup procedure is essentially the same so you shouldn’t run into any problems, although you may need to update the app once installed. You can install Moviebox HERE.

  • SweetPeach Shannon

    i am trying to get bluestacks app player on my computer but it’s not letting it complete going through

  • Abby

    I don’t see a ” showbox.apk ” file to double click… do I unzip or leave the file compressed?

    • You just follow the download link in step 2 and download the .apk file.

      There is nothing to unzip…

      • Jon

        what .apk file? Mine is also a .zip D/L

  • wahwahwahhhh

    i dont see the option to d/l showbox, i typed in show box in the search tab in bluestacks & nothing!

    • Please re-read the guide carefully.

      You just need to follow step 2 to download the app. (outside of bluestacks!)

      • scott

        help!!!!!!! no problems downloading the film/shows but how do I transfer to ext memory card? most downloads are in mp4 temp files so unable to transfer.
        anyone have same issue?

  • joyce

    when I search for showbox in the appmarket it doesn’t come up

  • Lynsey Cupples

    I only have 1gb total on my laptop and bluestacks needs 2gb total ram. Is there something similar to bluestacks that I can use to run showbox app?

    • Nothing that I am aware of…

      There is the android SDK for developers that might work…but that won’t be very user friendly if your.. well not a developer.

  • Anton Antonovitsh

    Yes i did all that. But I cannot download the file. Ok it shows file downloading, but later the file is not to be seen on PC anywhere. Finally I found what was downloaded, but it was not readable with no media player, it was just some JUNK that nothing can read. I wish to download a regular video file. Can You help please?

    • I’m not entirely sure what you’re asking…. Are you trying to find a movie you downloaded?

      Downloaded movies are saved in the image file – not easily accessed without a little bit of work. Essentially BlueStacks is an android emulator – right? So it uses a image of the android operating system to run, access the app store, etc. When you download a movie, or anything within bluestacks for that matter it gets saved within the android image – not your downloads folder on your PC.

      There are a few different ways to access these downloads, but that is beyond the scope of this simple guide. Here are a few sites that may help though.

      • Anton

        Thank you for your quick and kind responce. May be I will get lucky with these links. 🙂

      • Anton

        Of course. When I use it with Android phone, I will get access to regular files. Just to mention it.
        Files are regular on my phone. Then I can upload these files to GDrive, and view them throu chromecast. I thought it could be easier with PC.

      • Antonovitsh

        Great success. In Phone I used another app “File Manager” to see the files.
        I also installed this to BlueStack. And – bam! – I got access to regular video files.
        Great success!

        • Awesome! Man you are quick 🙂

          I’ll have to make sure to write a post detailing that process in the future. You may also be interested in checking out Bittorrent Sync to automatically sync these files to your PC.

          ~Cheers

          • Anton

            However, all is not solved, unfortunately. I do get access to downloaded file via android app “file manager”, but just later I experienced, that when I try to copy movie file to a Windows folder, it will only move about 300 mega of it, and then the whole Bluestacks becomes unresponsive. It will not copy any more, and I can not reopen Bluestacks (without PC reboot). Even so, at times I could not even reboot my computer in a regular manner any more. I today will test with smaller files. I will keep you posted.

          • Anton

            Hello. I now have tried to export mp4 video files with 3 different file-exploring-apps (ES File Manager, File Manager HD and File Manager (Explorer)). With all of them the problem is the same – they can export (copy to windows folder) a file that is smaller than 100M.
            They _may_ even copy a file that is 300M (usually not). But they will NOT copy a file that is 1 G big. The BlueStack program will freeze completely, I can still close it, but it will not reopen. It only will reopen when I reboot my PC. Which also is problematic, because after that my PC will not reboot normally, I will have to use the physical button.
            Now I would be happy if someone could tell me what is the problem and what to do. This ruins my goal with BlueStacks and Showbox. I have windows 7 professional, I have 6gigs of RAM and i7 processor. Also 20gig of free hard drive. I would apreciate help! Thank you!

            • I would look into BitTorrent Sync. Download it to BlueStacks and your PC and it should sync a small chunk of the download slowly overtime.

              I’ll try to make a post on this soon, in the mean time – please let me know if that works for you.

              • Anton

                It seems to work but I dont think it is for me. It sends the files over the internet but I already HAVE them on my computer. I am looking for a quicker way to get to them.
                I used to download files to my mobile phone and then drag them to PC with data cable.
                It was inconvenient but not so slow. Thank You.

              • Chupacabra

                Both ESI and OI File Manger lock when you try to move anything about/over 1GB, Windroy maybe an alternative. Then again XBMC+Icefilms. Youtube!!!!

  • Derek

    Hi, I’ve downloaded Blue Stacks and got showbox successfully. The only problem there is no video when I try to play any of the shows or movies on showbox. The audio is there just no video. Is there anything I can do?

    • SilverSprings

      I have the same problem. Hoping someone knows what’s up with that :/

  • Angela

    I clicked on the link you provided for the Showbox app … but it prompts me to download a zip file, not an apk … is there a way to fix this?

    • angela

      nevermind … I figured it out

      • Jaluzee

        Change the file extension from .zip to .apk. Make sure you change the “save as type” from compressed zipped to All files *.*. And it will work.

  • veronica

    i have bluestacks downloaded, however i cant get step 2 to work.. says “Failed-Download error”
    I did step 4 already also

    • stone

      Have the same problem… any idea how to fix it?

      • Hmmm. Works just fine for me.

        Perhaps try a different browser?

        • stone

          Chrome

        • stone

          I did.

          Mozilla worked perfect

    • david

      disable your security software for the download. mine thought it was a virus

    • Luis

      Find every bluestack and showbox download, file in downloads, programs, and in your browsers history where downloaded files get saved with that ‘blue’ or ‘green’ arrow that shows that your download has completed; DELETE every file and reinstall BlueStacks and then Showbox.apk. Do it exactly as Ryan indicated above and you should be ok. I’ve already done it on my Windows7 and Windows8. ;’)

      • ^100% This!

        Thanks for stepping in and helping out Luis. Good to know that it works on Windows 8 as well.

      • Jamie Richards

        I tried this and it still says can not play video. Do I need to download a video player for android to use it?

  • bubba70

    i have the bluestack app but when i go to step 2 im able to download showbox but it wont let me add it to bluestack what am i doing wrong can you help me?

  • alesia

    can someone please walk me through on how to go about getting showbox to download? I have bluestacks installed, but do not find showbox and am not understanding where to find it at. thanks

    • I’ve updated the guide with a screenshot on where to find the download link.

      Just follow the link in step #2.

  • JGuns

    I have bluestacks and showbox downloaded but when trying to watch a show I can hear the audio just get no picture.. the screen remains black. Any ideas??/

    • Do you have it in windowed mode or fullscreen?

      • JGuns

        Windowed

  • Nemo

    I have BlueStacks and ShowBox installed on my PC, but when i select a movie to watch, It doesn’t load and says that the Video cannot be loaded.

    • I’ll take a look when I get home and see if I can reproduce it…

    • Nemo

      I downloaded the VLC player and used it instead of the internal player, but unfortunately the video and audio have issues linking up in and out of time during the movie. I abandoned this effort and now stream from my android phone straight to the tv using chromecast and an app called Allcast. Deselecting the internal player, I choose to use allcast with a menu linking me to chromecast.

  • Hannah-Leigh

    I downloaded all this yesterday and it worked brilliantly but today I’ve tried to continue watching shows but a message keeps pooping up every time I click an episode saying that I’ve “watched too many episodes for today” when I haven’t watched anything? movies work fine though? how can I fix this?

    • Not sure Hannah…Definitely an issue on their end though.

      I did a quick Google search for that erorr message but couldn’t find anything useful. I would try their FaceBook page and see if others are having the issue…

    • John

      It might depend on how many are watched during one 24 hour period (not a straightforward morning to night ‘day’), so it would depend on when you last watched something.
      For example, if you can watch 5 episodes a day (I’m making that number up) and you finished watching the fifth at 11pm, then tried to watch more at 10am the next day, you would still be within that 24 hour period. So the limit would still be in place.
      Does that make sense?

      • Explicit0ne

        yeah but since when did showbox started to put a limit to the shows i watch? also does anyone knows where i can get the showbox verison before this stupid limit?

  • Hannah-Leigh

    *popping*

  • Len

    Can I export movies from show box on my PC? I’m using Bluestacks.

      • jdawg

        Is showbox up and running now?

        • It’s still been working for me – however their site is still down… which means that newcomers don’t have a place to download the .apk file to install showbox.

      You should download a free program called “winrar”
      It will allow you to extract the files from the “rar” file.

      Good luck

    • sdfg

      Wondering the same thing.

      • Interesting issue – I haven’t encountered that one myself, I would submit the issue to the bluestacks support team, they may have the answer.

  • ejwhite

    Hello. I have downloaded Bluestacks and Showbox. When I open Show box, It doesn’t show may anything on the home screen. It has the three options down the side (tv shows, updates and downloads) but no photographs of movies etc. I tried to search what I was looking for but that isn’t working either. Do i need to register or something like that? If so, could you please tell me how to go about doing that? Thank you.

    • chandel

      please someone helppppp im having the same issue!!! PLEASE HELP US!!!

      • Sure thing. But I’ll need some information first to troubleshoot.

        What operating system?
        Are you using bluestacks in windowed mode or fullscreen?
        Do you get a notification to update your video drivers when starting bluestacks?

        ~Cheers,
        Ryan

        • chandel

          im using windows 8 and i actually tried both modes and its still no movies or shows displayed

          • I would start by updating your video drivers. I personally haven’t had any issues mirroring yours and I don’t have a windows 8 machine to test with, so it’s difficult to troubleshoot. But updating your video card drivers is where I would start personally.

            I just tested and confirmed the service itself is working(Windows 7).

            Have you tried running Bluestacks as administrator? (r-click run as admin) Do any other apps work?

            • chandel

              yes the only way i open it is by run as admin. i have no idea how to update the video drivers lol i guess ill google that . thanks alot for your help ryan siegel

              • Sounds good – keep us posted. I’d like to know if that does the trick.

                If not…I’ll try to get my hands on a windows 8 machine “soon-ish”

              • chandel

                ok soi figured out how to do the video driver update but it says its already up to date so i guess ill be patiently waiting for you to get your hands on that windows 8 device , thanks once again

              • Can you confirm that other apps work just fine on bluestacks?

              • chandel

                ok so i tested an app called hayday which i had to install first from google play store and its working fine

              • jaykay

                I had this problem. It turned out that when I first opened showbox after installing I was getting a prompt to install an update. If I installed this it prevented showbox from downloading all the thumbnails for the shows and movies. By clicking “Remind me later” I got it to work. Hope this helps

              • Kadi

                any fix for this? I’m having the same issue. Using windows 8 and getting a black screen with three tabs. I, as well, have updated my graphics and still nothing. 🙁

              • Wish I could be of more help – but I still don’t have a Windows 8 machine to test on. If I find anything, I will be sure to follow up here.

                In the meantime I would seek out similar apps and see if the issue is isolated to just the showbox app or BlueStacks & Windows 8.

              • Tonice Leitner

                Works fine on win8.1

              • Thanks for the update Tonice 🙂 I just got Windows 8 to start testing this, as Others seem to be having some odd issues (which I can’t seem to replicate…)

                Good to know that Windows 8.1 is working!

              • I finally got my hands on a copy of Windows 8.1 – I can also confirm that it is working as intended on Windows 8.1.

            • Ben TEN TEN

              We’re not stupid. This crap simply does not work as described at all. It’s waste of time and effort.

              • Wow….

                Well I’ve tested it on both Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 and it worked straight away. The only variable in this post is where you get your .apk file from to install ShowBox.

                If for some reason the showbox app has stopped working – it has everything to do with their servers…nothing to do with the guide itself.

                I will leave it at that…

    • archie225

      You don’t have the real showbox app. In the real one the tabs are along the top, not down the side.

      • The one I have does have tabs along the top…. The current(perhaps old now) site is down last I checked.

        • Marshall White

          How many episodes can you watch a day? When does it reset to watch more? Is there anyway around that? It says “Were sorry, but you’ve been seeing to many episodes.” I only watched 3 woooow….

            I unistall and reinstall and it resets

  • Jason

    how long before anyone gets busted for copyright infringement using this app?

    • More than likely they would sooner target the source than millions of individuals.

      That being said… I would strongly recommend that you avoid downloading anything. Worst case scenerio – not having a physical copy of the movie on your hard drive is probably a good thing.

      • Casper Young

        Huh? If you download something it doesn’t matter if you save it or not. If you do download something labeled for copyright infringement it’s tracked to your IP address, or router but yes it is more likely they will target the source but they can go after you also. The above methods you mentioned to get Showbox working on a PC don’t work for me. Server error! Can’t connect to the internet properly.
        Secondly, there is an update problem. Showbox apk. works fine on my tab but when I update it I get this, “Show_box apk” which does not work! Uninstalled and back to the original apk which does work.
        So Ryan, Showbox is still in beta testing as far as I can see. My video drivers and video graphics card are, up to date, still not working on bluestacks. Every other app so far works but this one.

  • howlinwoofer

    My downloads occurred without any problems. I have watched “shows” without a hitch but when it comes to some movies there is a stuttering of both the video and audio. Any ideas on whats happening and what the resolution is? This doesn’t happen with all movies, just some.

    • Couldn’t say…It could be a number of different things. Bandwidth, server load, cdn network….etc

      • xav

        i would really like to be able to transfer the downloaded file onto a external drive so i can watch it on the big screen using my x-box any idea where the file is saved when you down load the movie

        • I’m writing a post on how to access your files/folders within BlueStacks from Windows now. I’ll post the link back here when it goes live.

  • Jason

    Worked Great – Thanks! Where do the files download to? There does not appear to be an option to change the movie download location, or am I missing it?

    • The downloaded movie is saved to the Android Emulator Image.

      There are a few ways to extract it….however none of them are all that simple. I strongly advise users to simply stream vs download. ( for a number of reasons..namely security ).

      However if you insist on downloaded a movie through bluestacks – I would look into setting up bittorrent sync in Bluestacks and on your PC.

    hi i have been struggling for the last few hours trying to install showbox on my pc i have followed all instructions very carefully even visiting several websites but to no avail. thing is i am not seeing showbox on the play store only on mobogenie please help. it is an awesome app and i already have it on my android devices
    thanks

    • Right, Because it doesn’t exist in the play store.

      You install it manually as described in Step #2.

  • pA

    Does this app use torrents like popcorn time?

  • I just thought id point out that showbox does work for IOS devices (iPhone, iPod, iPad, etc.) but it isn’t called Showbox. Its called MovieBox and is only available in Cydia to jailbroken devices. Just thought someone might enjoy that information.

  • George Coseraru

    great stuff…. worked fine on windows 8. had to use chrome… excellent. Many thanks.

  • jaycee

    I’ve successfully installed bluestacks and show box on my mac. However, when I click on a show it starts to load, shows the play buttons at the bottom of the screen, then goes black. So far I’ve tried three different movies/shows and the same thing happens every time. Any ideas please? Thanks

  • Deb Tucker

    Anyone else having the problem of it going to a page with Hello World on it when clicking the link to download ShowBox App?

    • Mimz

      me too and I don’t know what to do. anyone else know how we can resolve this?

      • The site is down – I’ve updated the post to reflect the downed status and will post back here if anything changes.

  • clare

    Do you have to install bluestacks to get showbix on an android phone!? Thank you

    • clare

      Ooops meant showbox

      • No you just visit the showbox website on your android, download and install 🙂

        You may have to over ride the security setting on your phone to install applications not hosted on the app store.

  • Tommy

    When I watch show box on my laptop the picture glitch though out the whole movie. Any idea why?

  • Gibo

    Is it me or is the showbox site been shutdown? or blocked isp? All I seem to see is “Hello World”

  • Mike

    Why is it when i leave the showbox idled the screen goes black and then I have go to showbox icon to restart?

  • ShAngel31

    I am having Playing and Downloading issues with the app. The video keeps freezing every minute or 2 when I “Watch Now”, even after I keep the video paused to let it load more. When i try to download, it only gets 1/2 way done and says waiting for downloading…. that is if it will start the download at all. I have cleared the cache & data multiple times but it still will not fix this issue. Please help…..

    • I know they are having some server issues, which is probably tied to their site going down recently. If possible, I would try to stream at a lower qaulity to avoid poor playback.

  • WoodyRom

    Any word on the site coming back up?

    • Unfortunately No.

      Sites/Apps of this nature tend to disappear in short order due, it may have very well suffered the same fate as cartoon HD. Luckily their are many others eager to take their place, a quick google search should yield some similar apps.

      • Woodyrom

        I will check, thanks!

  • Nick

    I went to http://androidshowbox.org/show-box/ and downloaded showbox there because the linked site is down (as posted). However, I’m having the same problem that chandel is having. Thus, I can’t confirm if this link will work as well as your link.

  • Wayne

    Showbox download link does not work just opens a new link saying Hello World!

  • LliamLliam

    Got Bluestacks. Got Showbox. Runs fine UNTIL I click a movie, then it quickloads an ad. Everytime. Ad nauseum. Any way to kill the ads? I can’t get Adblock Plus for Android to run.

    • I don’t support the use of adblock. Showbox is completely free and only exists because the developers can make a bit of cash via the ads in return for all the work that went into providing this FREE app/service.

      As a publisher of free content myself, I can’t in good conscience help you with this.

  • BIS

    can this program be be used on a wii console

  • shermbe

    my galaxy s5, running most recent version of kitkat, randomly starting saving the files at .temp i can watch them through the showbox app but they will not play when opening them through the native video player or any other video app. any help?

    • jiv

      i think its because you select use internal player when downloading, if you untick should have an mp4 only

    • meridiot

      I had the same prob. Just get rid of the .temp ext in the filename and they run fine.

  • Leo

    There is a Showbox app available for iPhone users. It’s just under a different name and it’s called Movie Box 3.0 but you must be jailbroken to download and install the app through cydia or any other browser.

  • John

    when i download a movie fron Show Box where on my PC does the file go to

  • Diego Flores

    hey im using showbox on my galaxy s3 and on my google tv, on the former one it works perfectly but on my tv it first started by not playing the movie full screen no matter what i did and now every time i open showbox it reads showbox isnt responding but if i click on wait it works regularly then when i try to watch a movie it says its loading, it takes forever and then it tells me that media cant be played…….please help me i love this app

    • Couldn’t say Diego – Might try your luck contacting the developers but I think they are getting close to closing up shop….

  • Jason Jinks

    I followed the steps that were given on YouTube and I still can’t get showbox to work. I downloaded bluestacks got it to work. Went to http:/music-box.cc.showbox.apk or something like that and downloaded showbox or thought I did. Moved the showbox file to the apk handler file or whatever it’s called. Opened bluestacks and showbox wasn’t there but the game apps were. HELP

  • inari

    hi I am having an issue where no movie data is shown, just a white screen when I run it, any ideas?

    • Typically this can be resolved by updating to the latest video card drivers – especially true if you have a radeon graphics card.

      Otherwise, people have also reported success by simply re-installing everything. But I would start with the driver updates personally.

  • jen

    i have bluestacks but im unable to download showbox or the apk file

    • This is correct – the site has been down for awhile now ( as stated earlier in the post ). There are imitations out there that serve the same purpose though. A quick google search should get you a similar application 🙂

  • KillaKaylah

    Hello I followed all the steps with succes up until I actually wanted to play a video through bluestacks. It just tells me that it can’t play. Help! 🙁

  • David

    Ryan, Is Bluestacks limited to 500 mb file transfer? I have tried several File Managers and they all fail around 400 to 500 mb. The large movies on Show Box are 1 gb+. File Manager will copy the entire 1 gb+ file to rootwindows but fail on every shared file. Do you have any suggestions on how to get past this?? Thanks

    Hi, I’m having problems watching movies that are in mp4 temp, is there a way I can convert these movies so i can watch them

  • michael ratcliffe

    Hi i have installed Blue stacks app on my Mac and then using dropbox account where i loaded tha showboat file i download it to bluestacks, i can access the app fine and browse the movies and shows, but if i try to watch one i only get the audio and a black screen? I tried downloading an episode of the simps ions which it downloaded quite quickly but same problem on play back. If i bring up the control bar and scroll along to a point later in the movie show as i move the cursor the pictures appear but once i stop scrolling and press play again it is back to black screen with perfect audio, i have tried restarting loads of times any ideas?

    • ProTech

      I’ll start by saying “GUTTED FOR YOU”.

      Nah only joking man, its a common problem with Mac’s that can “usually” be resolved quite easily.

      1) go to system settings on your mac

      2) once is system settings put the mac to one side.

      3) find a place on the floor with space, put your hands together and pray.

      4) continue to pray untill the problem is corrected.

      hope this helps play your video as well as the sound. It should resolve the black screen issue.

    • michael ratcliffe

      Many thanks

  • iamindark

    i recently found out about chromecast and i have show box on my phone. one of my friend plays his movies directly from show box to his TV using the chromecast by unticking the “internal player” option however it does not work for me.

    i have tried using it with ALLCAST AND LOCALCAST apps but it does not work. it does work fine on my phone though when i watch something.

    can someone please help me so i can get to watch show box movies direct to my TV using the chromecast 🙁

    you may suggest any other options which you think will work or have work for yourself.

    thanks a lot guys

  • Luke

    Downloads are being finished correctly, they remain as .mp4.temp and cannot be played with an external player. What’s going wrong?

    • darius78

      Rename the file by deleting the “.temp” and it should play

      • Olga

        The name is .mp4 but it it still is a temp file. So it is not really possible tot delete .temp because it says .mp4 while it is a .temp file. What should I do?

        • chinkster

          you can rename it with es file manager. download and install es file manager then in bluestack open es file manager and locate the file, click and hold then select rename and delete the last bit of .mp4.temp so it just says .mp4

  • Luke

    Sorry, previous post should have read downloads *aren’t* being finished correctly.

    Hi, I’ve done as instructed above however when I select a movie to play it gives me the watch now or download options but when I do it won’t play at all. I’ve even tried to download it & watch it that way but it still won’t play then either. Any thoughts on how to get this working ?

    • chinkster

      have you tried installing a player??….like mx player app on bluestack.

  • Ben

    I’ve got it all working however with the iOS version on cydia, (MovieBox) you can use iFile to locate the saved file of the movie & put it in the Cameraroll so I can put it on a USB stick & watch it elsewhere. Is this possible with the PC ShowBox?

  • kiki

  • NicoleStorm

    I’ve downloaded ShowBox on my android phone and it works perfectly. I recently installed bluestacks on my Mac so I can watch it on my laptop as well. For some reason when I click on an episode to view, it asks how I would like to play it (internal video player…external etc) No matter what option I choose, I cannot watch any episodes 🙁 On my phone I just choose “internal player” and everything works fine. Ive already downloaded 2 different external video players and still no luck :/ Any suggestions?

    • chinkster

      hi, when you say you downloaded 2 different external video players, do you mean for your mac or video player apps??…..you may need a player app.

  • Jade

    Everytime the app has completed downloading, I click on it and it says it cannot open file

    • chinkster

      if it is a temp file it won’t open, you need to rename the file with es file manager from .mp4.temp to .mp4

  • Simon D

    Nothing is being displayed in the bluestacks window after i click showbox app- no movies to tv shows,no updates etc.

  • Jannie Le

      showbox is not available on play store, you need to download the file itself from a website and then click on it to install then open bluestack and it will show up as one of your apps

  • Jim

    I’m keep on getting stuck half way downloading movies and it won’t resume after I hit resume button? I tried restarting Bluestacks but that doesn’t help.

    Hey I have just downloaded show box on to our laptop, is there a way of transferring the programs I download on to a external hard drive to then take home and watch through our smart TV?

    Thanks

    • chinkster

      well when you download tv shows/movies on showbox it saves it in a folder, unfortunately its hard to locate that damn folder when searching in your hdd.

      this is what I do (on win 7)

      – download and install es file manager
      – in bluestack open es file manager
      – click on showbox folder select the file and then click more and move to
      – click windows folder then BstSharedFolder and move

      once the file has finish moving, on your pc open any window….computer, documents etc…doesn’t really matter which. copy and paste this C:ProgramDataBlueStacksUserDataSharedFolder in the top bar and enter. it should then show you all your mp4 files you downloaded with showbox. select all and move to external hdd and enjoy.

      hope this helps 🙂

  • Darren Donovan

    Hi, I installed bluestacks and showbox apk on my Surface Pro 2 tablet. I opened up bluestacks, and this screen came up. I then opened showbox by double clicking the Eye icon, the screen went black for about 4 seconds, then the previous screen returned. Apparently, showbox was not able to display any movies/shows…… for whatever reason. I tried out the other apps in bluestacks: Facebook, Twitter, they both worked. Please help.
    Thank you! FYI, Showbox works fine on my phone, Galaxy Note 2.

    Hi!!
    I’ve got blue stacks but when downloading showbox it’s telling me I need administrator permission? I am the administrator and can normally download anything. Anyone know where I’m going wrong. I have full control as administrator.
    Thanks
    Matt

    • Have you tried right clicking and running as administrator? If you are talking about running the .apk file – please be wary as there are numerous versions out there and some of them could potentially be malicious! If it would normally run and you are local admin on your machine – I would seek out a different .apk file.

  • Cassie

    Hello. I am new to Showbox via Bluestacks. When it works, it is ace! However getting it to work is frustrating. I end up fighting with the software for about 30 minutes trying to get past ‘sorry cannot play video’. Although it highlights the item as yellow and watched. I am trying to watch this on my PC, with full wifi etc. After a while (changing nothing) the app will start to work and play many episodes in succession. But trying to get it started is putting me off.
    I am running windows 8.1 on a PC, with no other apps running in the background. Really hope you could provide some advice? Thank you.

    Everything has been downloaded to my laptop but when i click on a show or a movie and then click watch now i just get a blank page with a timeline across the bottom saying 0:00 on each end

    • I’ve found that lately some movies simply won’t load (generally newer films). If this seems to be effecting all movies/tv shows, then generally running their update tends to resolve the issue.

  • Bangali

    Ryan, just to let you know, cartoon HD and ‘showbox’ are both available to iOS users.. Cartoon HD through the App Store (now unavailable) and showbox, which was actually available on iOS first under the ‘moviebox’ name through the cydia repo’s is still available. And to be fair, moviebox is a lot less buggy. Just so any iOS users on this forum felt left out!

    I upgraded to Windows 10, reconfigured Bluestacks and started Showbox. I get audio, but for video I just have a green screen. Help?

    • Joyce

      This drove me round the bend too, but decided to check my add on’s, Adobe flash player ws the culprit so it needs updating when you are on Windows 10. The video was fine after that.
      At first I was just keep trying to use Show box with Blue stacks, and sound perfect but no video. what pushed me to Adobe Flash player fault was when the BBC News player came up with the green screen too, so I new it wasnt just the blue stack at fault

      • So Updating Flash fixed the black/green screen that you were having when trying to playback video in BlueStacks?

        Thanks for posting this here Joyce – I know many others have ran into this as well and I haven’t been able to replicate it myself 🙂
        ~Cheers

  • Kerri W

    I have a problem. I have showbox installed but it’s only allowing me to play tv shows and it’s not allowing me to watch movies. Everytime I click on a movie title it closes down and goes straight to the bluestack homepage.

    i have the bluestacks emulater with the recent shoebox app. i literally just finished watching a movie and i exited out the complete program to grab a bite to eat. came back and shoebox said it needed to be updated. so i did that but it never updates. then i decided to not update and watch a movie and it kicks me out the app. what is the problem?

  • Jessica Carpenter

    Heads up everyone, it’s no longer safe to use the newest version of Showbox. It may be safe for streaming, however for downloading, it’s no longer safe. It looks like they went to a torrent model for downloads instead of just being able to download from their servers and now you can get ISP notices for copyright infringement from files that are used as decoys to find the ISP’s of people the are downloading them. I should know..I just got one. Looks like Ill be trying to get it to work on my pc so I can at least stream to a bigger screen.

  • kevmeist

    Has anyone used bluestacks/showbox to cast to a Chromecast V2 device on a big screen TV? The web seems to show quite a few posts that says that Chromecast does not support this, but I have seen a few that say it does.

    I have got bluestacks/showbox working on my Win8.1 laptop and with an ethernet cable (CAT6) plugged into the Gb switch in my entertainment rack and the HDMI from the laptop into my Denon receiver, I can see ShowBox on the big screen. My house is wired with CAT6. The switch in the entertainment rack goes to my wiring closet to another switch and from there to my router.

    So, the question is still whether Chromecast V2 (the round device) will work with Showbox.

    Thanks

  • David

    I tried to download movies on my window 7 envy 6 laptop from showbox and bluestacks but when i play. Its so slow and keeps frezzing which makes the words play faster then the picture. Like a Chinese movie

  • clarkmurphy

    I can get the showbox home screen with all the film posters and such, but that is as far as I can get. When I click on a film I only get the ‘working wheel’ – for want of a better name – spinning trying to get the film and I don’t even get as far as the ‘watch now’ screen. Can anyone help me with a reason to what’s stopping me accessing showbox please?

  • Julie Hart

  • Mike

  • Sadie

    I managed to download everything however when I click to watch an episode, in my case vampire diaries s7, it doesn’t come up or an add comes up and doesn’t take me to the episode. I continued to click every once in a while to see if it would work but now it says I’m watching too many episodes at once? Is it a glitch or what?

  • Dee

    Has anyone tried to watch something from a premium cable site and got a letter in regards to copyright infringement?

  • Ethan Dowson

    The blue stacks program will not download correctly due to a wide range of errors, it is not my pc’s fault. Is there another emulater I can use?

  • JC

    You can stop the message saying you watched too many episodes today by changing the date on your Android emulator… it works without doing anything else for me. Clear cache did not fix this one before.

  • Jose Almanza

    Why on the bluestacks 2 on shobox if theres a 780 picture on a movie it runs slowwwe on the old one it didnt do that y helppppi

  • Luxury Deem

  • Keith

    I used Showbox for downloading on my PC, Windows 8. It was working great until about 3 months ago. When I go to download, the only server that will download is torrents. As soon as I hit the download button, showbox closes. If I go back to the site and look at downloads, the program that I attempted to download is there, but has not downloaded. It asked if I want to resume. Again, as soon as I hit resume, showbox closes out. I tried new versions, old versions, clearing cache. Any ideas.

  • hdog

    i got the app on bluestacks, but all it does is load the movie it doesnt play it

    • I’m not sure i understand what is going on.

      When you try to play the movie, It buffers but does not play it? Or does it play it with no sound or a black/green screen with sound, etc…

      I need more details
