Cinema HD APK Keeps Crashing – How To Fix

Does your Cinema HD APK keep crashing? Stop working altogether? Won’t stream content? This tutorial will show you several ways to troubleshoot app crash issues. I concentrate on Cinema HD but the same principles will work on most apps on most phones.

Cinema HD is an exceptionally popular streaming app that is as reliable as it is well stocked with content. It stands above many of the competition because it just works. No fuss, no messing around, just hide behind your VPN and enjoy the content. While the vast majority of your time will be trouble free, there may occasionally be issues to contend with playback or with crashes.

As Cinema HD is not an official app, you have to figure things out for yourself if they go wrong. That’s why I put this tutorial together. To show you how to do just that. As the majority of Cinema HD installs I know of are for Android, I’ll use that. If you have it installed on an iPhone, modify the steps to work for iOS.

Cinema HD APK keeps crashing

There are a few reasons why apps crash. Corruption, poor coding or some protection or security measure within your phone OS. As long as you have a good wireless connection, Cinema HD should usually work fine.

As with any troubleshooting methodology, we begin with the easy stuff and work up to the more involved tasks. That way, we do the least amount of work to get you up and running again. Follow these troubleshooting steps to hopefully stop Cinema HD crashing on your device.

Restart the app

Always the first thing to try with any app issue. Shut the app down and restart it again. If it doesn’t initially work, go into Settings and Apps, find the app and Force Close. Give it a minute and then start the app again and retry.

Restart your VPN

A crash isn’t normal symptom of an unstable connection but I have experienced this myself. A quick restart of the VPN can sort that.

  1. Shut the Cinema HD app down.
  2. Turn the VPN off. Give it a few seconds.
  3. Turn on the VPN and wait for the connection to go green.
  4. Start Cinema HD and retry.

Restart the device

If those two don’t work, try restarting your device. A normal reboot of your phone or tablet should refresh everything and get the app working again. In the vast majority of cases, this is enough to have Cinema HD streaming perfectly once more.

Clear the app cache

When you close an app, your device keeps a copy of any cached data in case it needs it again. Rebooting a phone will clear some of the cache but not all of it. A manual clearing should have Cinema HD up and running again.

  1. Select Settings and Apps.
  2. Select Cinema HD from the list.
  3. Select Clear Data and Clear Cache.

There should be a counter next to each setting telling you how much data and cache is being saved. You know the process is complete when both of those turn to zero.

Check your app version

Like many unofficial apps, the Cinema HD APK is subject to copycats and modified versions. There are dozens of modded versions that say they can avoid the ads or offer extra features. I have tried a couple of them for a different tutorial and none of them worked as well as the ‘proper’ Cinema HD app. Sure the ads can get in the way occasionally, but stability is more important than a few seconds of your time.

Make sure the version you’re using is an unmodified version. This version is widely regarded as the ‘proper’ one.

Reinstall the Cinema HD APK

Our final troubleshooting tip is to reinstall the app from scratch. If something has gotten corrupted or you’re unwittingly using a modded version of the app, installed it afresh should get it working again.

  1. Download a fresh copy of the Cinema HD APK from the site.
  2. Uninstall your current version while it’s downloading.
  3. Open your file explorer app and navigate to downloaded items.
  4. Select the Cinema HD APK file.
  5. Give it permission to install.

You may have to set up any customizations you made again but the app should now work perfectly.

Those are the ways I know of to troubleshoot issues with Cinema HD APK crashing. These techniques will also work on most apps, including official ones from the Play Store.

We used to use the app almost daily. Recently when we go into the app, it loads and then just exits the app on its own. Sometimes it stays in the loading cinema tv state, sometimes it shows all the latest shows, but all for a few seconds then it leaves the app. We tried clicking fast to toggle something, anything. All with fail. We cleared the cache data, installed a VPN, removed our add blocker, restarted the device, Uninstalled, reinstalled and updated to the latest version. It still won’t work. Should we concider finding another streaming service? Or is there any hope for cinemaHDv2??

I use the app on my fire cube, and I don’t have a problem of getting the app to open or even play show. My problem is once the show is over, when I press the back button to go to the next show, it freezes up and becomes a gray screen. You can’t do anything to get out of the app, I have to use my home button, the settings, and force stop the app……

I have the latest version as of May 7th 2020. But sometimes selecting a stream, the stream will start and after a while will crash back to the streams page. I have tried my, vlc.
If I then select a different stream, it plays ok.
Does that mean that some streams are corrupt please?
Avatar Defenestrate says:
It crashes on my fire stick every few plays, claiming the stream was bad. Then it says the same thing about other streams, or switches to some random playback I didn’t choose.

Foetunately, ending the app and loading it back seems to work.

Seems like something’s up with the app that started on April 7th because it doesn’t seem to be working and no fix seems to fix it…
Avatar L says:
