Any update on the status of video over 3G with the iPad App?
Are you able to tell us why the app was rejected?

I've been experimenting with a MiFi 2200 with mixed results. The CR iPhone app works okay with the MiFi but there seems to be some problems (with buffering maybe?) on the hardware or app side.

However, CR.com videos in SD play great with the MiFi while using a laptop. I have yet to test the iPhone app on the iPad but I may not have to since it looks like the iPad app and my iPad will arrive at roughly the same time.

BTW thanks for keeping us updated.

Since the iPhone app is restricted to WiFi, I'm sure the iPad app will be restricted to WiFi as well. It's in Apple's Terms that the app must not use an excessive amount of the cellphone network's bandwidth. This is most likely put in place to make sure people don't use up all the bandwidth which would cause overall connection speeds to suffer.

Can't say anything specific about why it was rejected but the iPhone app has been rejected for similar reasons. It's just how things go ... everything needs to follow Apple's specific terms. When the problem is fixed and the app is resubmitted, there's still no guarantee that it will be approved since another violation could be found when they go through the approval process again.

Thanks for answering the 3G question, I guess I'll keep my MiFi then. I would mention though that the Slingplayer app (by Sling Media/ sling box) streams video over 3G but this exception is most likely because they are relatively large company whose primary business depends on the ability to stream video.

I'm disappointed (with Apple not CR) but not surprised. Anyway, can't wait for the app! Thanks again.

I'm dyin for an iPad crunchyroll app.

As an aside, I am a premium member, and CR site works fine, but my iPhone app doesn't recognize me as a premium member. Any advice?

iPhone app isn't complete so all the features aren't there yet. I believe you currently have to wait 24 hours in order to watch the latest episodes since the app isn't secure enough for us to provide simulcasts.

There are both iPhone and ipad apps that stream video over 3G. Why can't crunchyroll do the same? Look at apps like AirVideo and Ustream or even Dailymotion's streaming app.

Ask Apple, not us; they're the ones who disapproved the 3G usage for the app. I'm guessing our videos are higher quality that the videos in the apps you speak of or could just chalk it up to Apple Politics. The iPad app may have some limited 3G access though, not sure.

I think it’s important to remember that the CR iPhone app is still in its beginning stages and I assume that the iPad app will only have slight improvements this time around.

However, in the next few updates I would like to see quality scaling based on connection speed. This would improve the overall performance of the apps and eventually increase the likelihood that Apple would allow CR to stream over 3G.

Of course by this time next year 4G (in its many forms) will have started to drop and we’ll all be watching CR wherever we want.

"Sorry you can't view this video."

I also received an error when trying several Last Exile videos; however, Gundam Wing seemed to work fine. There are no videos for Mobile Suit Gundam & MS Gundam 00 on the site.

This happens from time to time without explanation, although it has been far less frequent since the last update.

Try deleting the app, reinstalling and then restarting the phone/touch.
also FYI to help you get better help: always try to catch the error message so the admin/mods can easily identify the issue.

FYI to MODs: Don't know if this could cause a problem with streaming and the app but Last Exile has a release date of 0002

Last Exile and most of the Gundam shows are no longer available on the site which is why you can't watch them through the iPhone app. I'll see if the entries can be removed to avoid confusion.

For the iPhone app, I can watch all the videos just fine but quite a few of the episodes have no subtitles. Will this be updated?

Please report which videos in particular have this problem, either through email or in this thread, and we'll have it fixed.
