In the new build can I make a request to please keep soft subs and allow users to turn off the subtitles. Or better yet, create a toggle in our video settings on Crunchyroll.com so we can turn them off site wide. In my opinion this is one of the better aspects (that and the full HD videos) of the Boxee app vs. the other devices.

Also going forward please keep in mind there's little hope for flash on the Boxee Box... unless Adobe changes their mind and provides an update.

I believe it is near completion.
I do not know the process for approving new builds on Boxee.

Thanks for the update, hope that "near" is a "real soon now" type of thing!

So,

I got the new update to the CR App, but the subtitles are gone now. Also I don't think the video is playing in 720p. Any ideas on how to set either of these up? The settings section doesn't have any options other than to change my login account.

BTW,

Forgot to mention, the new UI is pretty cool! Subscribing to shows is also a great idea. To get around the problem above, I just loaded the website, and am watching from there.

Thank you so much for this new app! It's great.

At first I was worried because navigating is a bit sluggish. However, having the addition of the queue practically nullifies the responsiveness of the app as becoming a serious issue. Sure it's a pain to look up videos alphabetically, but once they're in the queue it works splendidly.

I wish "Autoplay" had been fixed, but instead the videos just close when they are over now. Not a big deal, but please consider it in the future.

Still holding out hope that one day an option to turn off subtitles will be allowed.

Now that the new build is available will Crunchyroll add the Boxee Box to the bottom of the website along with the other Platforms and Devices?

Hi,

My wife and I have been playing around with the new app this evening. It looks nice but I don't know. For us, it seems much slower to navigate with, especially for shows with hundreds of episodes. When browsing the Naruto Shippuden page, for example, the app seems to hang for several seconds about every 20 episodes while it loads thumbnails. It's taking forever to scroll to the end of the list.

Also, with the old system, you could navigate in a non-linear manner using the alphabet bar on the side--now it looks like users have to scroll through every single Crunchyroll title from A to Z in a strictly linear path. Recently we got hooked on 'You and Me' so...hmm.

Sorry, I really hate to complain and I know somebody must have put a lot of work into this new app but is anybody else finding it a bit inefficient to use compared to the old one? I hope CR is planning optimize it soon. The new app's rigidness discourages free exploration of CR's library, at least on the Boxee Box.

On the plus side: the personalized queue is pretty cool--it almost makes up for the awkward browsing. Being logged in automatically is also quite nice! For the time being though, I think we're going to do our browsing outside of the new app and load up our queue for later viewing.

HD is working now, and so were subtitles.

Thanks!
