Update

According to Shinji's update in the New Video Player news thread, there is now a limit of 15-20 videos per day. This was put in place to cut down on bandwidth. This method has proven to be very useful and has already cut down the cost of running the site.

------------------------
I don't know all the details but there appears to be a limit on how much you can stream in a day. I've heard that it only allows you to stream 5-10 videos a day so everyone should be more conscious of what videos they stream. CR supporters don't have to deal with this.

So don't panic. Just limit yourself to like 5 episodes a day and you won't have any problems.

This post will be updated when we have more information, so look back here periodically instead of seeking answers elsewhere on the forum.

This is to address Frequently Asked Questions regarding the Bandwidth Limit

Re: Premature Bandwidth Limit notices
~ The Bandwidth Limit is per IP account, not per user account or computer. Therefore, if you're using a shared internet connection (i.e. internet cafe, office, etc.), you will share the same bandwidth limit as anyone else who watches CR from the same internet connection. The result is seeing the Bandwidth Limit either prematurely (e.g. seeing the limit even if you have not watched any videos).


Re: Bandwidth Streaming Protocols
~ The bandwidth limit is based on amount of information streamed, not per video watched. This means that 5~10 videos is only an estimate, and may vary depending on what type of videos you watch. The standard used in the 5~10 limit estimate is a 25 minute video of normal quality at 4:3 aspect ratio (approximately 30MB per video stream).


Re: Resetting of Bandwidth Limit
~ The bandwidth limit resets precisely 24 hours after your first see the Bandwidth Limit Message, regardless of your timezone. If it does not reset, try clearing your cache and deleting your cookies.


Re: Bandwidth limits that fail to reset
~ I've been consulting with some friends who experience this problem, and it may be related to those who see the limit prematurely. This has something to do with ISP protocols on how they deliver internet connection to you. It may be different depending on the ISP in question, so for those who live in the Philippines, feel free to PM me regarding this issue. For those in other regions, you may want to PM a moderator who lives in proximity to your area.

OMG people. The larger screen problem has been solved. If you don't have the patience or the intelligence to find it, then you shouldn't be watching in the first place. How about you guys stop leeching and help out with the community instead.

I've been wondering when an announcement concerning this would show up. I haven't been able to watch any shows for several hours now, but no one else seemed to be having that problem, so I wondered if it was just me... -sighs- I barely even watched any videos, either, I was just clicking through them kinda randomly ;_;

This really sucks.. does bandwidth really need this much money? If this continues, crunchyroll will be just like any other anime-viewing website.

This is really sad. Are you guys doing this to force us into paying?
this isn't really worth it if we have to pay, isn't there any other way?

eh, I didn't watch too much of anything here, I'm mostly in the forums, how about you give us the money for this, I can't speak for everyone else, but my parents don't allow me to pay for anything over the net, even if they did I don't have anything to my name, and won't for a while and I'm 18

Just sayin"
