Hi guys,

We've been working hard this week trying to get the video quality better. We were finally able to get the raws for Naruto Shippuden 90, so we re-encoded it and replaced the old videos. To the Anime Members, please give me some feedback for the HD versions! Since we have the raws, we're able to use better telecine cadence detection to minimize blended frames and made the animation smoother.

We're currently working on tonight's simulcast, Episode 93. Hopefully we'll have it encoded in the same way before the launch tonight! If we don't finish encoding with the raw, we have a lower quality version as a backup (until the better version is ready of course).

Episode 90, improved and re-encoded below, HD 720p:

Btw, we're still working on the video connection closed and other streaming issues. It was fixed for a lot of users last week, but some people are still having these issues =**( Sorry! We've been going through the bug reports to narrow it down. Unfortunately it's a slow process since we do have to work with our video streaming provider to do certain things =*(. But we're doing what we can on our end by experimenting with other settings and providing data so they can troubleshoot it. In the worst case we'll revert back to the old, pre-January streaming system temporarily for LQ and HQ videos until things are running smoothly.

Sorry about the bumps in the road! We're trying our best and working extra hard as usual, and we do hear your complaints. It's a hectic time for cr, so thanks for your patience!

Instead of releasing the lower quality, i recomend you to wait and just encode the episode 93 the way it should be. Will rather have good quality then a shitty one =) waiting alittle wont hurt at all

Just watched the re-encode of 90, looks a whole lot better. The animation is a lot smoother, and any blended frames are unnoticeable.

Please work on subs, those still need a lot of work. Most fansub groups are better than the actual "professionals" from what I've seen. By the way, rumors are spreading that CR will hire Dattebayo for subs, if only it were true.

Animation on NS90 is a lot better, but still some color bleeding / ghosting noticable. Linking to a SS showing the effect.

But yeah, it's much better than what it was earlier! Now you can only see it when there's lots of stuff changing in the picture.

So summary: it's still there, but much less

Thanks for the hard work... :)
However...

Please try to find a way for AnimeMembers to avoid all this region blocking ... Quite a few of the series I signed up for AnimeMember to watch are not available in my region, which really suck's when I paid for a year ;P ..

Though I dont mind the money going to the Anime industry I do mind not getting what I paid for ...

Anyway, Solution for the AnimeMember please ... And Keep up the Good Work ...

PS: DEATH OVER DISTRIBUTION/COPYRIGHT LAWS
