Yes, streaming Popcorn Time to your Mede8er is a breeze. Start up PT on your PC, goto the settings and change the folder to stream the output to into a folder in the root of your Mede8er (e.g. "popcorntime".) Untick the box which deletes the folder's contence when leaving PT.

Startup a movie on PT, while (of course) having your Mede8er switched on. Use the Media Library browser to go to the Popcorn folder on your Mede8er. The movie will be there. Start the movie and use your Mede8er remote to add a subtitle, if you need it. You can immediately watch the movie. When you let PT stream the entire movie into the folder, you can then move it into any folder of your choice, together with the subtitle you added with the Mede8er.

What about streaming of popcorn on resolution 720dpi, that does not have subtitles that are downloadable? If i stream PT on HD it's creating the folder containing the movie and subtitles.... on the other hand low resolution movies (720dpi) is placed on the root of the streaming folder and no subtitles are visible there...
