I watch Crunchyroll on roku at what looks like 720p without any problems. Show after show. It does indicate 2/4 dots. I figured that was a bug since they quality looks so good.

Crunchyroll has yet to encode any of the videos for Roku in 720p. 480p is currently top quality via the Roku.

From the Roku forums:

1 dot is .5Mbps
2 dots is 1Mbps
3 dots 1.6Mbps
4 dots 2.2Mbps


CR's normal 720p stream on a PC is just under 1.6 Mbps, so you would be getting 3 dots on the Roku if you were getting 720p from CR. If it worked like Netflix on the Roku, you would also see "HD" appear to the right of the dots.

As of yesterday, none of the videos load in Roku anymore. It just stays at the loading screen forever or boots me to the episode summary. It even happens during off-peak hours. I have been watching other anime on Netflix, Hulu Plus, even Crackle flawlessly though.

On the same day, the website also started moving slower than a herd of turtles stampeding through peanut butter.

I haven't been able to watch anything for the last day or so. What's going on? Another service provider change?

Same here, it's taken me at least 30 minutes to watch the last 5 minutes of the most recent episode. The app sucks on the iPad and now it is messing up on Roku. Pathetic.

True. I've filled out a tech support form but no response yet. I'm starting to get peeved now as streaming from CR has been total garbage since the beginning of 2011. But now, I can't watch a damn thing no matter what time of the day (or night) it is unless I stream it in SD through the website which is truly pathetic.

So, an update:

After a few back-n-forth replies from tech-help, shows on the Roku went back to streaming as before. I'm not sure if this is a fluke or if someone remembered to feed the hamster powering the servers, but I'm able to watch anime again if I pause it and let it buffer for a little while before playing the episode.

So, back to my earlier question. Will there be an option to select the video quality on the website at which the Roku streams from CR? As in, can we pick a lower resolution to stream at to save on bandwidth? Unlinked/non-premium accounts get a lower resolution and bandwidth usage when watching videos on Roku. Is there anyway you can give us premium members the option to select a lower resolution with Roku while still being able to get premium benefits (no ads, simulcast access)?

Netflix offers this option and I wanted to see if it was possible if CR could do the same.

For the time being, you can add shows to your Favorites by following this link and then clicking the "Edit/Sort This List" link at the top right of the page.

We submitted the Roku update 2 weeks ago but it seems there was a problem so it wasn't approved. So some changes need to be made before it can be approved.

First off, have to mention that I LOVE having CR or my Roku box but it's not without problems, most notably, episodes of Eyeshield 21's 2nd Season. Most episodes run the entire 20+ minutes but a lot of them aren't showing the full episode & I'm getting run times around 10-16 mins & have even had some end as soon as 4 mins into the episode - any ideas???

That's a known issue with Skip Beat and Eyeshield 21 though there are most likely other videos affected by this that we don't know about. If you see others, feel free to report them.

We're trying to fix those episodes as soon as we can but I can't say how long it will take.

720P video playback has been put on hold so I can not say when it will be available.


I'm kinda disappointed. I bought a Roku and subscribed to Crunchyroll expecting to get HD video.

Any idea when we're going to get 720P video on the Roku? Will it happen anytime soon? Do any of the other TV boxes stream HD?

Episode 8 of The Mystic Archives of Dantalian cuts off at time 17:17. I watched it twice and it cut of at the same point each time. Some kind of coding error maybe?

Anyone trying to watch the K-drama Jewel in the Palace, with hour long episodes, if episodes 25 and 26 are fixed for Roku, it'll be a while before hitting the other two missing episodes which are near the end of the series.

The exact thing happened to me at the same timestamp. Even when I tried to resume playback it just stuck at the loading screen. So, I hit the "home" button and backed out all the way then went back in to the CR channel, picked the episode, and tried "resume playback" again and it picked up from where it originally kicked me back to the episode summary and finished it.

You also get this with episode 10 of No. 6 at the 12:12 mark.

This worked for me for a while, but as of this week, the favorites I add on the website do not show up on Roku. thanks.

Besides Netflix, Hulu, Amazon and of course Crunchyroll, what makes Roku awesome?
