Download X3Player To Watch Torrent Movies [Scam]

By Sidharth | New Product

Let’s accept it: We are victimized in one way or the other as we unfold the world of web; spams, virus injected webpages, malicious software and adware toolbars are all over the web waiting to desperately reside on our PC as well.

One more software spotted by my friend is X3Player — similar to domplayer — this is a rogue software integrated with torrent files.

Here’s how X3Player stays on your PC:

When you visit torrent websites and download any large torrent files, say a movie torrent, everything looks fine. The download speed is as smooth, but the real issue comes in when you play the file using your media player. The movie video fails to show up on VLC, Mplayer or any of the good freeware player. You will get a message like this:

You need X3Player to Watch this movie. Download it from Real.X3Player.com

x3player_download

So Should I Download X3Player?

Of course not. Do not download X3Player. The rave reviews and testimonials you see on the x3player website are all done for a reason: to impress you and lure you into buying the program. The software is priced at $9.99 and this is one smart move from them to have you into buying the player so that you can watch the movie. Well, forget it. Don’t buy this.

You can always avoid downloading such players by identifying fake torrent files. Once you are able to identify the file you were about to download is fake, skip them. This will save your bandwidth and, more importantly, your time.

X3Player is a Scam. There I said it.

    They are useless. Delete them. To be on the safer side- make sure you do read the comments from users (torrent users) before downloading.

Greetings..

I hope this note reaches the right people.
I downloaded two movies from (http://www.torrentdownloads.net/) and found that in order to view this movie I would have to download a program called x3player.

Using VLC player, I opened the movie, and it showed what I thought was the movie, but flashed the x3player web site and seemed to use 99% of my CPU, and I had a hell of a time to shut it down.

I finally pulled the plug and restarted my Laptop. Ran IO Bit to erace any unwanted prgms, and malware. So far so good.

Below is the name of the movies and the torrent file I copied from the green icon that is sent with the file.

I hope this helps to catch the assholes trying to scam us.

Well, I came across this kinda problem many a time myself and it is quite obvious that it is some kinda spam. But I am curious to know what kinda scam it is. As in what happens after purchasing the player..

    Let’s say this is a fraudulent business scheme. Of course, this software also bundles with trojan virus (according to wikipedia) in the free version.

    I ‘think’ it will play the file after you purchase the software. I haven’t considered buying it, though, this is a sneaky tactic from X3Player but that’s not how you run a business 🙂
