    I have been using the Showbox APK for a couple months now on my Laptop through the Blustacks Android Software…. I recently started having a problem where every video I played was in Slow Motion and very low pitched, but it wasn’t so slow that I couldn’t stand to watch it, I just dealt with it. Well I was just watching Southpark and all of a sudden it went into hyper-speed and had now sound at all… Please somebody have some advice for me on how to fix this bc I’ve tried going into my android settings, I’ve tried my cpu settings. I’ve tried anything I can think of, I even downloaded a new video player hoping the video’s would play at normal speed with no luck whatsoever. Thanks to Showbox, I haven’t even turned on my TV, I LOVE this app!!!!!! PLEASE, SOMEBODY, I NEED HELP!!!!!

    Showbox won’t allow me to choose a server. When I click on watch now it shows me the different speeds and how many seeds but then plays on my phone when I have “other player” selected in all my settings. I’ve tried downloading the vpns but that doesn’t seem to fix my problem. I have to keep downloading the movies i want and then usung localcast to cast to my TV. So annoying.
