Been toying around with the app for a little while now, and the basic trend I'm noticing is that anime that were not part of a simulcast (such as Fist of the North Star, Pretty Cure, and Air Master) are not yet available on the app. Either that, or the episode lists just are not loading, for whatever reason. It's not as if it gives me any indication otherwise.

Any predictions on when we'll be able to look forward to more shows being available?


We're in the process of re-encoding all of the videos to our new iOS, Android and Roku formats. It will take at least a month to get through most of them.

We did the Simulcast shows first since those usually have clean source videos which causes us to run into less problems. Then we started doing the Popular shows, temporarily skipping ones that may have problems. Now we're working on everything we didn't already do. There are problems with the source videos we were given for Fist of the North Star, Pretty Cure and Air Master so that could cause those shows to take longer to make available through our app.

In short, everything will be made available as soon as we can.

Hi, love the app for android. I am coming across an issue where the scenes blend together or looks like it doesnt catch up with itself. I am using a Samsung Galaxy S with ATT. Is there a way for me to get smooth playback?

Greetings!!

Glad to see a new update for the player that got pushed recently (today?). I did run into issues with it, so I did a total uninstall and then a reinstall.

On login, if there was an error with the user login Name (or password) it would initiate a Force Close. I have discovered that User Names are CASE SENSITIVE for login purposes... not fun :(

Also, Letter Bee would cause the new CR App to Force Close. I could play the Belzzabub PV without error, but when I went to Letter Bee to watch the new episode (or any previous episodes) it would FC.

Also have an issue with audio lag with the App. I notice this with the older Bleach episodes (60s range of the series). I've rebooted the phone, cleaned memory, insured substantial ram with very few other processes running on my Droid X phone (running 2.2).

Anywho, that's my run down on the new Alpha release. Thanks to CR for their continued great work.

I was running into that, too, yesterday. A couple hours later it was all working fine. So I think there was some problem on the server end that the app didn't know how to deal with so it crashed instead of reporting the server error.

I'm having similar force close errors with all of the new uploads pretty much. Also noticing slight audio lag on some older files.

Something strange is happening. None of the NEW releases are working any longer.

Beelzebub Ep1 will not play (PV plays ok)
Cardfight!! Vanguard Ep1 will not play but Intro plays
Dragon Crisis Ep1 will not play, but Intro plays
Fairy Tail Ep61 will not play, but Ep60 does play
Gosick Ep1 will not play, but PV will play
Hourou Musuko PV will NOT play
Kore wa Zombie de suka will not play either PV or Ep1
Level E ep1 will not play
Letter Bee last two ep will not play.

I got tired of testing what would and would not, but it seems that the batch file to convert new videos into the Droid App compatible format is not running or it could be this new version of the App that came out the other day.

My Internet has gone down at my home because of power surges & what not, but I was really depending on the CR Droid App to get me through. :(

Great idea for an app, now if you could just make one that actually works that would be really fantastic.

Seriously, how is it okay for CR to advertise the ability to watch on Android as one of the selling points of the paid membership when the vast majority of the vids don't work? False advertise much?

I understand that Android can be difficult to develop for, due to the lack of standardization. Apps that deal with video content are especially troublesome - looking at similar apps, such as G4's app which (off an on) never loads videos, paints a pretty bleak picture. BUT! This isn't a matter of whether or not CR is putting forth a good effort or trying their best. It's a matter of false advertising. If this was just some pre-alpha project that CR lets the fans in on while they work out the kinks, that would be one thing. Instead, everywhere you look on this site it touts the ability to watch CR on Android as a selling point for the paid membership.

I love CR. Love the content, love the ambition, love the atmosphere. But touting this app as a main selling point for the paid membership...it's absolutely ridiculous and completely unprofessional. If you can't make an app that works, don't try and make us pay money to use it.

I'm here to echo tripperdan99's post about the Winter Simulcasts. None of them play on my Droid 2 app either. Every one I tried gave me the message Sorry, this video cannot be played. after a brief time of refreshing the data. I was looking forward to using my phone to keep up with this season's simulcasts, so I hope this problem can be fixed soon.

They worked on the devices we have. They also work on my friend's Motorola Droid (1st gen), though it has a custom rooted rom.

I'm not sure what changed that would cause the videos to not work on some Motorola Droid phones but we'll try to look into it.

Edit: I think we figured out the problem so the videos should be fixed by tonight.

Out of curiosity, are you at liberty to share what that problem was?

This App is a ALPHA Release, not even BETA.

Let me explain, THEN you will see that your comment of "one that actually work" probably means that you should not install or mess with this app until it goes "Gold"

Alpha is the initial hammered out code that works for a few minutes before it crashes. It is normally not released beyond programmers and hard core testers.

Beta is a more stable product that still experiences crashes, bugs and occasional code modifications. Some features are added or removed at this stage also.

"Gold" this is the release candidate where most all known documented issues have been addressed

I suggest you wait until the App goes GOLD before you use the app. I think your current argument is harsh and uncalled for in this stage of development of the Droid Product.

Thanks Big B!! Look forward to using it some more.
