I have a crt tv 4:3 aspect ratio and I am trying to watch crunchyroll videos on my ps3.
I can get MOST of the video on the page to display but some of the video is cut off so I can't read all of the subs.
I can only see a part of the video in full screen.

I'm guessing either this can't be done on my old school tv or I have some setting wrong.

Could someone please help me out?

Thanks!

It's because of the TV. I've tried different settings before but it just doesn't work. It's time to move on and get an HD TV... I had to do the same thing.

Any possibility of 720p playback on PS3 in the future? I can't get enough Bleach, which is the reason I got the membership, and would be totally pumped to see Bankai jumping through my screen in High Def!!!!

We are looking to support more devices so it's possible that there will be 720P playback through the PS3 in the future. But you won't have 720P playback through the PS3's browser unless Sony updates their browser and is able to provide better support for video playback through Adobe Flash.

Hey Guys I really need help with crunchyroll. My computer is broken for the moment so I have been watching Naruto shippuden on my ps3 for like a month now, but recently some of the episodes only show a black screen and I can't see anything that is happening, I can see the subtitles and hear the video but there is no picture, how do I fix this please?

I confirmed that upgrade to Firmware version 3.40 (latest version) causes our older videos to no longer work. Newer videos will work because we changed our encoding system somewhat recently. This is an issue with the PS3 so we will not be able to resolve this problem. The specific change that caused this to no longer work is that they" upgraded" their version of Adobe Flash from PS3 9.0.124.0 to 9.0.159.0.

I'd suggest reverting to a previous firmware version or switching your Default Video Quality to "HQ".

PS3 is so fail! I was ready to sit down for a pleasant evening of crunchyroll watching and experienced the same problem listed above. Can anyone confirm switching to HQ through cr's settings fixes this? Or will I have to revert to an older firmware?

How about a Crunchyroll application for the PS3? Hulu did it.

I don't see an option for "HQ", only "H264", "480P" and "720P", none of which work on my ps3...

LQ and HQ video qualities are being phased out which is why the option is no longer there.

The mobile site isn't complete yet but I would suggest going to it when watching videos on your PS3. In the future we may automatically show the mobile site when the PS3 browser is detected, to make things easier.

PS3 update 3.41 is now available. It seems to have fixed playback issues with the older videos.
