How To Change your Server on Showbox

How To Change your Server on Showbox

So, Showbox is this really cool app that lets you watch all your favorite shows and movies. It’s got a ton of streams and torrents to choose from, making it the ultimate streaming app for your PC or mobile device. But here’s the thing: sometimes it can be a bit of a pain. Just when you’re getting into the movie, the link to your server can suddenly break, leaving you frustrated and ready to chuck your phone across the room.

And that’s not all. Showbox doesn’t have any official support, which means you’re on your own when it comes to dealing with any issues that come up. But don’t worry, I’m here to help you out.

How to Change Servers

If your server goes down, Showbox has got you covered. Switching to a new one is super easy. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Go to the Main Menu and click on “Movies”. Choose the movie you want to watch.
  2. Look for the “More options” button on the right side. It’s the one with three dots in a line.
  3. In the options menu, you’ll see your current server. Just click on it and select a different one. If the only option is “Torrents”, you’ll probably have to download the video to continue watching.

Fixing Possible Server Errors

Being the most popular streaming app has its downsides too. Sometimes, you might run into errors like “Video Not Available, Try Another Server” or “Server Not Available/is Down or Cannot Play This Link”. But don’t worry, we’ve got solutions for that too.

One thing you can try is using a VPN. A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, lets you access information stored on a private network using a public one.

“But what does that have to do with my streaming problem?” you might ask.

Well, a VPN can also help you hide your IP address and appear to be in a different region. Some servers are only available in certain regions, a.k.a. “geo-locked”. So, if a server isn’t showing up on your app, it might be because you’re not in the right region to view it.

For example, let’s say you want to play a popular game from Korea in the US. You’d need a VPN to connect to their servers and download the game client. The VPN makes it look like you’re in Korea, so you can access the site and download the game.

The same goes for streaming media that’s restricted in your current location. A VPN can help you get around those restrictions.

How to Use a VPN to Help With Showbox Server Issues

  1. Download a VPN app of your choice. VPN One Click and SuperVPN are good options for Android.
  2. Select the country where the server is located, not your own.
  3. Once connected, go to the Settings on your phone and clear the data and cache for Showbox.
  4. Now you should be able to open Showbox and watch your video.

If the stream starts to slow down or buffer a lot, you can usually fix it by switching to a different location in your VPN app.
