Crunchyroll is slow on loading videos during the day. When I watch anime, an episode(about 24 minutes long) takes 45 mins to load, but after 12 am the video loads fast, an episode of anime takes just 4 mins to load

I am in the Philippines(Time is GMT +08:00) and my ISP is PLDTmyDSL and my connection speed is 2.5 Mbps. No router wireless or network direct connection only...

Can some one tell me what might be wrong....

it's your end. most probably. during the day might be the busy internet hours, so everything runs slower than on less busier times of the day. but i do admit that the streaming speed on cr has immensely decreased with the new player, at least for me that is.
secondly, there are also busy hours for cr..lol
also there is a difference of stream speed between the various video qualities.
low quality usually streams faster than hi-def. ; )

During the night I can run 3 simultaneous low quality videos w/o them stopping...and I usually watch animes at H.264 Hi Def or High quality and it finishes loading before I reach half of the episode but during the day I can hardly watch low quality w/o stopping...I check my speed on different speedtest sites and they say that it 2.5 same as what i get during the night...The speed is the same in day and night but the videos load ssssssllllllllooooooowwww during the day..

Is there a limit for each country?? Or maybe I connect differently during the night(In different servers at least)??

^like i said -during the day-, seems to be the "busy" hours, where a lot of people are accessing cr, and streaming videos, so everything slows down - cr server - and - your internet provider -. either it's just your internet provider, who is having a lot of customers using the internet at the same time(during the day), or it's a lot of people from all over the world accessing cr at the same time to stream videos = slows down, or it's both.

i still believe that it's your end, as for me i can stream videos as much as i want, any time, and it has approximately always the same speed.
