is it just me or is 720p not really 720p, the screen contains all sort of colored lines(maybe from interlancing?) and the pixels are stil very visable.

don't get me wrong it still looks very nice, but compared to the stuff I see at gametrailers.com this looks like a lot less of quality, while gametrailers deliver it on a lower resolution.

yea the 72op is really awful, the 720p example they have is much much better than this. there was lines through it and sometimes colour distortion

They're aware of the problem and are supposed to be working on it http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-433397/720p-Streams.html#21135536

Bothered me too... we pay and get this, while the piracy world is getting it for free... meh.

Hopefully we're rewarded and the streaming sites are sued into oblivion (can you tell I'm mad?)

I know how you feel. I know on youtube you can report pirated videos, but on Veoh, you'd have to actually be the copyright holder to do so. It's not fair that people like us who want to support the industry are being ignored and shunned by the pirates

ON TO THE ACTUAL THREAD TOPIC:
Filler~ ... No comment. Other than that, the new ending...made me laugh. I think the band for this ending might be an indie Okinawan band.

I prefer no one get sued, but I was not to impressed with this so far. I had some buffering problems. And isnt it supposed to be 5.1? I thought Naruto was.

I hope they pick up a few more anime that are to my liking otherwise this was a big waste of money.

Bleach anyone?

I thought it wasn't that bad. There were not colored lines for me. The 720p looked ok. The streaming paused on me once and I had to start it over. I just skipped to the spot it stopped and it started again. Seems passable at the moment. I am sure they will work it out. Something tells me a lot of those sites that are doing it for free are going to start getting some lawsuits.

Well we are paying 'em 60 bucks each so it's not like they can't afford it

I don't have a HD monitor, nor a very fast PC, so I stuck with H264.

Still, it really annoys me how people are still getting these eps early illegally. =/

[sighs] This day marks both a new high for those of us with decency in our asses and a new low for those without.

The only problem i had was that i had to wait for 2 - 3 minutes so i could watch it un-interupted, the actually quality was pretty good, although i do miss those karaoke lyrics and yeah, its a little annoying when we are paying for this service and people are just uploading elsewhere, but oh well. oh and the new end credits were awesome

I have problems with these. They don't vsync, it's kinda choppy, and my CPU at like 70%.

720p h264 plays fine in standalone video players.
Flash is bad for this.
Linux user here, using version 10.0.15.3, maybe the plugin is just terrible.
Non softsub videos I'll just play the mp4s directly in an external app, but the softsubs are encrypted so I can't get subtitles doing that :\.

And it keeps buffering, I know it's not a bandwidth issue on my end, I usually pull ~1200kB/sec off other sites.

Hopefully a few things get worked out ;)

This may turn out nice. Would be perfect if the subs were encoded right in the video.

Crud...this seriously has been buffering for 15 minutes and it's like 1/3rd loaded. It stopped playing again.

Oh I thought it was just my computer/connection. Apparently other people are having issues streaming. Well. this is a huge amount of data.

That ending song was great. Choji's face was amazing. Dattebayo should be subbing this episode as I type, so I can't wait to see the karaoke. On the subject of Dattebayo, this will be their last episode of fansubbing Naruto. I will be sad to see them go. This was the first time I watched the official subs, but I must say I prefer Dattebayo's. I like my honorifics to be untouched, not translated or ignored. And when Naruto called Jiraiya "Pervy Sage" I flashbacked to when I watched the dubs. *shudders* But there isn't a whole lot I can do about it.

Back to the actual episode, I can't wait to see how Hinata and the others have improved. But especially Hinata. But I have to wait a whole week. I watched the first 85 episodes of Shippuuden in about 2 weeks.

Not a whole lot happened in this episode, it was mostly a transition ep. Things should start happening soon though. This testing of Sasuke should be most interesting...

Totally agree with you on the honorifics. Anime should not "sound" like an American cartoon.

I agree the 720p wasn't 720p, just something streached to fill 720p. It locked up for me 3 times and required me to restart the stream. Crunchyroll isn't new to the streaming video. There is no excuse for this failure.
