Series: Jumong
---->Second time watching it on Crunchyroll.com
---->Premium Membership
---->Latest Flash Player installed

This is my second time watching the Drama series Jumong. On some on the episodes lately though Ive been experiencing two different problems. and one other thing thats kinda weird as hell

1st: (Most annoying imo)... The video will not load certain scenes into the play. Once the computer / timer /w/e reaches those scenes it will skip over them into the next scene

example: Currently on episode 13. the Episode is showing to only be 47 min long but most / al jumong episodes always have been at least 60 minutes. At appx 18 * 20 min in there "should be" a scene where the king announces the crown prince competition. BUT... it goes from the scene where kumwa figures out jumong learned from hae mo su and the scene where he decides to give jumong his chance / destiny / w/e out on his personal little patio where the war table is... -----> skips >>>> to the scene where the two princes daeso and youngpo are talking at the table with there horrid mother about how absurd the crown prince competition is..

I tried backing up the play line like rewinding to see if it was shown at all but nada... its just not there... like it was cut or not loaded... IDK whats causing this but its happened on several episodes and is VERY annoying

2nd: occassionally the video will be in the middle of playing... FREEZE... and then go into the next episode loading screen... annoying as well and idk whats causing it...

PLEASE HELP ME FIGURE THIS OUT o.o

P.S. the other really odd thing is this... the first time I watched the show the names and things in the subtitles were... different i believe... the subtitles now call jumong (Chumong), Daizo (Taiso) and some other really weird variations? whats caused this change

sincerely,

Kristopher

The video skipping to the next episode mid-way through one is happening to me too. Once every 3 episodes, more or less.

I have had that problem sometimes. What I do is turn off the auto-play feature and refresh my browser. The video usually picks up where I was. If that doesn't work, restart your browser or change quality.

Same thing happens to me maybe every 2 or 3 videos although sometimes it will be okay for say 5 videos and then start again after that... normally changing from 480p to SD or vice versa does the trick

This is happening on the original Naruto series...

My videos also keep jumping to the next episode at random points. Too bad no CR support has answered this. I guess it's time to find a new alternative.

I had responded to the original poster through email.

The problem with the video skipping to the next episode happens when the connection between the person's computer/network and the server they are streaming from becomes unexpectedly unstable. If this happens to you a lot, you will need to do what you can to stabilize the connection on your end but the instability could be due to factors that are out of your direct control. You should also disable the Autoplay function by clicking the button on the video player's control bar. This way you just need to refresh the page to continue playing the video.

Strange. I've had this happen too. As it probably shouldn't be doing this but at least there is a work around for the issue.

I have the skipping problem too, but only with 480 and up resolutions. When I play a video in SD the skipping problem does not appear. Not sure why.. but... there ya go.

I cleared my cookies and I'll do as BasouKazuma suggests as well. Hopefully the problem will be fixed soon. It's not a deal breaker for me, but it sure is annoying!
