As a frequent ShowBox user, I must confess I have rarely encountered any problems or errors on the app. Most often, I solve any error messages by restarting the app, and it works fine each time. But looking at the number of problems being reported across internet forums, I thought I should get a little bit into it as well and have a look. And so, after a lot of research, I’ve managed to make this short and simple post that should tell you how to get rid of common problems, like ShowBox Server Error, ShowBox not responding and more. Let’s get started!
ShowBox Server Error
ShowBox Server Errors occur when the files or torrents of the movie or TV show are missing or if they were never added. This means the file is either not available anywhere on the internet, or if it is yet to be added. You can wait for a few days and check for the file again. The ShowBox team is pretty observant and takes note whenever videos go missing.
ShowBox jumps back to the start
ShowBox is a great means of keeping yourself updated on the latest movies and TV shows. However, some users report that the video doesn’t play normally and goes back to the very beginning. Some even say this goes on over and over. The cause of this problem is quite petty. Most often, this happens due to a slow internet connection. Your smartphone, when streaming your content, is connected to a session to the server, which expires after a while. If you have a slow internet, your session will expire before your content can complete browsing. If the session does not reconnect to enable more buffering, your video restarts. Try getting a faster connection, or pause the video when you start it and let it buffer to some extent before starting to watch it
Crash reports are perhaps the commonest problems reported for apps. The cause is pretty easy to eliminate too! To get your favorite app to stop crashing, it might be helpful to delete some of the old apps, useless data and media files. The problem is caused if your memory gets too crowded to run a process. Otherwise, this particular error is pretty rare, and you can simply restart the app without any hassle.

ShowBox cannot play this video
If ShowBox cannot play the file you’re using, the cause could be that your media player is not compatible. ShowBox supports all of its content to play seamlessly on MX Player. Try downloading MX Player on your device. If you want to also be able to cast your movies to the TV or PC, get GrowBox instead. Read more on our article on GrowBox and ShowBox here.
