Oops, I said stuttering occurs less on Macs but I had that backwards. Stuttering apparently happens more often on Macs due to hardware and software compatibility issues but I don't think it happens on all Macs. You may have to read around about it but I'm not sure if there's a solution other than changing hardware or waiting for Adobe to release a version that resolves those issues.

Im having the studdering problem myself.My whyndohs HD failed and I cant afford to get a new coppy of windows. (dont buy used computers folks) so Im using linux 64bit. Everything on crunchyroll studders and its horrible. I do not have this problem on any other website though... so it has to be something here. I did not have the problem on vista 32bit though.

Does anyone have a recommendation or fix for this?

Yes I have the latest drivers. Its the intel integrated video on the 950 chipset. 2 core duo 1.87ghz processor and 3.5 gigs ram available. I did not have this problem what so ever with windows. Its only happening now that Ive moved to linux AND it only happens here on crunchyroll.

Go to HULU.com and watch a 480p program. Do you get any issues?

Hulu plays great at 480, no issues what so ever, youtube, funimation, you name it. The only site I have video issues on is crunchyroll. *shrugs* I'm starting to seriously think there's something wrong with the player here since more threads like this are popping up.

It's not just you Hella.

The crunchy roll player has problems it seems.

I still haven't fixed my issues. I've pretty much just give up. I have 4 computers that all do the same exact thing

After my membership is up will probly just go to some other source for my anime fix.

Honestly I wish they would fully support the PS3 so I could watch it on TV. That is worth a membership to me

Same thing here too on a couple of different computers. Different browsers, different systems, all get the same results. Even on my gaming PC it still jerks between subtitles. I am already regretting the 1 year membership. Merry Christmas to me...

I have 0 problems with any other online media website. Even Netflix with all it's licensed material streams of anime and movies and TV shows are smooth. It's more of a combination of bad encodes and a lackluster player here. Embedding the subs into the video would make a difference I bet.

Yeah... Im not willing to pay to move back to windows.... its not worth it for one site. I'll just wait a few weeks extra for stuff to come out on hulu or whatever. I'm going to cancel my membership after this month unless they fix the problem.

I believe your problem is with Flash not functioning properly on your Mac due to the lackluster Flash support for it. If you were to have those specs on a Windows machine, it would most likely not have any problems.

Videos work on the PS3 up to 480P quality as of last month but the PS3's browser never was able to support our 720P videos even on any of our old video players. So that is a problem that we can't fix.

I assume the problem is that you are on a 64 bit OS and running a 32 bit version of Flash. Though even if you are using the experimental 64 bit version of Flash, there may still be problems since it's not an official/stable release yet. I don't really have much experience with linux outside of the command prompt, so I don't have all the answers.

I would suggest either reading up on installing 32 bit libraries to get 32 bit Flash running smoothly on your 64 bit system, installing the experimental 64 bit version of Flash (may also need a 64 bit browser) or installing the 32 bit version of the linux package.

64 bit OS's are not fully supported by software developers so you will most likely experience many other headaches while using it.

I think you might be confusing me with the guy who was saying he owned a mac and crunchy roll worked for him towards the start of the thread.

I've been testing this out on PCs

The PS3 thing works but it is soooo slow to navigate and the video will not start instantly.

If there was a app built for it much like Playon does with Hulu...man that would be soo cool

I have done all this, including trying the 64bit flash. I have absolutely no issues on any other video site. The only place I have troubble is crunchyroll.

Hmm. Well I think it depends what time a day you are watching anime. If you watch anime from 5pm EST - 10pm EST It will most likely lag due to server loads on crunchyroll and your bandwidth providers. Do a ping test when your video starts to lag and see if your ping is bad. If it is then it isn't crunchyrolls problem. It is your service provider. I never have any video issues unless it is in between those times stated above.

Also are you hardwired or are you on a wireless modem. That can also effect streaming video performances. I am on a 64 bit OS and don't have issue's with this.

It can be 3am mountain time and it still does it. The stutter lag starts immediately. I have tried both through my wireless router AND through a direct line to the modem, neither make a difference. I'm going to try a few more things... but I'm running out of options.

Oh, my bad. What graphics card do you have? I forgot to tell you before that to use Flash 10.1 you need to upgrade your video card drivers on top of having the proper type of card.

You can find a more complete set of information and listing of supported graphics cards here:
http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flashplayer10/releasenotes.pdf

Link supported Nvidia cards:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/gpus_supporting_adobeflash.html

I would really recommend getting a supported video card if you don't have one. CPU usage drops drastically and increases the video's performance.

Here's the results of a test I did a month ago on my 2.4 Ghz Quad Core system with a GeForce 8800 graphics card.

720P video with Flash 10.0.42.34 (current version):
Window mode: 35-50% CPU usage
Fullscreen mode: 20-35% CPU usage


720P video with Flash 10.1 Beta 2 (upcoming version):
Window mode: 22-30% CPU usage
Fullscreen mode: 7-17% CPU usage

If the play/pause button does not flicker on and off, then you're not experiencing a network problem. This is almost definitely a software issue since the same hardware worked fine under Windows Vista. But beyond that, I wouldn't know what the specific problem is.
