Hey everyone,
Before i begin let me just say that I'm not 100% sure if this topic has been created before but I haven't found anything of the sort when I searched.

The reason why I've started this Forum discussion is because I want to know if there's a solution to this problem and for anyone else who is experiencing it to find the answer here.

My problem is with the constant freezing of the videos on Crunchyroll. If I leave the keyboard and mouse idle for a lengthy period of time while watching the video and then try to press a button or move the mouse, the video and the browser seems to freeze. Sometimes, but not always, it will resolves itself and begin playing normally after a lengthy period of time, but it's very irritating to be forced to wait. When it has officially crashed it really is disappointing and frustrating to have to load the video again and wait for the spot where I left off.

I found the problem occurs with the Higher Quality and Hi-def option of the videos and not with the Low Quality. I don't know if this is a problem with the site itself or if it's just an issue with my browser/internet/computer, but if anyone else is experiencing this and has any ideas to help solve this issue it would be much appreciated.

yeah that happens to me sometimes, it sucks. It might be your internet connection or something.

This seems like a far off shot but my friend has this problem aswell and he found out that it was he's screensaver kicking in and hes browser couldn't handle it so it just froze.
A long shot but it might help

If you have site-related problems, bring it to the Site Support/Help Thread. Someone already posted a link to that thread here. If anything, freezing videos is usually a user-end problem. Check your internet connection and see if it's stable, and make sure your computer is fast enough (if you're running multiple applications at the same time).
