As I stated in a different thread:

As Android OS matures, we'll be looking into providing an alternative to Adobe Flash for video playback.


The problem where it doesn't show you as logged in is probably because the login for the mobile site isn't working yet. We have to wait on something before it will work. So that shouldn't be an issue when the mobile site is officially announced and running properly unless it's an issue with how Skyfire processes the videos . Though the HTC Evo is confirmed to be getting an upgrade to Android 2.2 in the near future so you will be able to install Adobe Flash 10.1 on it once that happens.

Android OS doesn't have a sophisticated built-in video player like Apple does with their iOS devices so we're going to have to research the platform some more and possibly wait to see how the platform progresses before we can commit to either making a dedicated app or launching the videos from the mobile site into a built-in video player.

Thank you for the updates and hard work on getting this working for the Android OS, as a paying user for CR I think this would be a huge benefit one way or another. Thanks.

Looks like the EVO will be getting 2.2 sometime this week. That will have flash built in so I am looking forward to seeing if the site mobile or regular will work. Lets hope!
Although having a dedicated app would still be great.

Redirected from the following thread:
http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-655600/another-crunchyroll-app-for-the-go/

--------------------------------------
I think the Beta version of Adobe Flash 10.1 Mobile doesn't support hardware acceleration yet (was hard to find up-to-date info) which would explain the minor stuttering and amount of battery consumption. I'm assuming the final version of Adobe Flash 10.1 Mobile will provide smoother playback and consume less battery power.

It already functions very well but it looks like it will perform even better in the future.

The mobile vidoes work for me on my EVO, but could us premium members log in to get better quality. Other than having a big screen on my EVO and having somewhat grainy playback it works great.

Considering that there are now more Android enabled devices on the mobile market than iphones, is there any chance to see some kind of android app for at least premium members? Granted I can watch my shows via flash, but I think that's a far less elegant method than an app.

I think it would be a big mistake to focus all of your attention as developers on iphone/ipad applications considering the ever growing Android community. Flash on android is somewhat usable, but does have it's issue with lag and battery drain.

Some nice features that should be included:

- Notifications of new episodes of your favorite anime.
- Share what you're watching via Facebook on demand.
- Resume Playback at a later date.


Other features I think would be nice

- Manga viewing
- Jpop Radio
- Access to forums

Hrmm, since updating to the non-beta of Flash 10.1, I'm getting some serious audio/video lag. The audio is a good 30 seconds behind the video. Anyone else seeing this issue?

I think this is a common issue with the latest version of Adobe Flash for Android which affects other websites too. I personally noticed audio lag while watching videos on a different site. For Crunchyroll, I just notice some video stuttering but I think the audio remains in sync.

There are definitely some issues that Adobe needs to address and I'm not sure why they took it out of BETA. So we can only hope that these will be fixed in future releases of Adobe Flash and wait for them to add in support for hardware accelerated video decoding which would increase the video performance.

I am running an over clocked moto droid and it is pretty choppy and audio doesn't sync up. I get the this video isn't optimized for mobile even on the SD link. I have had good experiences with other sites using better optimized encodings with good clear results. I think if someone where to take a look at adobes mobile guidelines for their codec we could make this work out for everyone since the android app isn't "concrete" yet.

The audio sync issue is a problem with Adobe Flash but the stuttering is a problem on our end.

The biggest problem with making an Android app is that Android OS's video player is no where near as good as the iPhone OS's so we would have to make a bunch of work-arounds to get it running. For example, you can take the TV.com app. I believe they have to split the videos into multiple parts when they stream it since Android OS doesn't securely stream the videos.

So we are interested in making an Android app but we'll first need to get better acquainted with the Android SDK and possibly wait for Android OS's video streaming capabilities to mature.

Unfortunately the X10i is still waiting for Android 2.1, but at least the Skyfire browser works decently.

Still... yeah, waiting for more news on that Crunchyroll app. Hope it'll be here by the end of the year.

I overclocked my Motorola Droid 1 just so I could watch Crunchyroll videos. At 900 MHz, the mobile Crunchyroll videos play smoothly. At 1 GHz, the SD videos on the regular Crunchyroll site still has some stuttering. I haven't tried clocking my Droid faster than that.

According to the release notes (http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/860/cpsid_86018.html) for Adobe Flash 10.1 for Android, it doesn't have hardware video acceleration support.


Hardware decoding of video is not yet enabled. Currently, Flash on Android 2.2 supports software decoding for all the same H.264 profiles as Flash on the desktop.
