Hi guys,

I've been watching animes on Crunchyroll for a while now and recently, I got a new laptop which is a lot better than my previous Desktop computer. The thing is, I can watch animes such as Naruto, Bleach or Reborn perfectly on my old computer with no whatsoever. I moved out of town and am forced to use my laptop now but every other anime I play besides bleach lags.. I updated all my drivers and others to date and still have that problem. Any suggestion will be appreciated. Thank you ;D

You said you moved out of town, which no doubt means your internet connection changed. How does your current one compare to what you previously had?

Also, I expect your desktop was connected via Ethernet, while the laptop is via wireless, is that correct?

Do you have any problems with videos of the same resolution from other sites, such as YouTube?

Regarding Bleach being the exception, do you only watch it when the new episode comes out Tuesday morning, or is this true at other times, as well?

My apologies for answering your query with multiple questions, but it should help narrow down the cause of the problem.

My desktop computer was also connected via wireless. In fact the connection where I live now is a lot faster than before. On youtube, I can watch videos that are 1080p with no lags whatsoever. As for Bleach being the exception, it runs smoothly all the time.
I will see with some other animes and see if they also lag..

Thanks,


EDIT: I just tried to watch some other animes and they all lag.. So far Bleach is the only exception I've found..

Does the video automatically pause and play or does the video stutter while the audio continues playing smoothly? The former points to a network related issue and the latter points to a computer performance issue.

So, depending on what the issue is, please follow the instructions in my first post of the following thread and post the necessary information there.
