MovieTube is free to download from its official website. The MovieTube application is available as a download for Apple, Windows and Android devices. However, streaming certain movies using MovieTube is potentially illegal, as viewing some films constitutes copyright infringement.
MovieTube uses the BitTorrent protocol to stream movies to the user's device without saving the file in permanent memory. While using the MovieTube application is not illegal, viewing copyrighted movies using the application is potentially a crime. Google has received several complaints under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act from motion picture companies accusing MovieTube's creators of infringing copyrights, according to public legal records posted by Chilling Effects.
