Just thought I'd draw attention to the fact that using the PS3's media server function for videos (specifically RSS internet video streaming), using TVersity to stream over the network, that adding the RSS feed "http://feeds.feedburner.com/crunchyroll/rss" for Newly Added shows does successfully work over the network, but with one minor problem I hoped that CR staff and techies might be able to fix. Every item from the RSS feed displays on the PS3 folder Video->TVersity Media Server->Internet, RSS&Podcasts->Crunchyroll - Newly added as "Unsupported data" with a ? for the icon. Pressing the triangle button brings up another menu for each of these items, and if you select "information", it will display the title of the video. I was hoping that CR could make it so that instead of having to go through all that to see the title of each newly added show, if they could replace the "Unsupported Data" message with the title of the show.

Adding that selecting each of these videos results in a message that the data type is not supported. I'm not certain if this is an issue with PS3 network support, or something else entirely, but it seemed worth mentioning.

The RSS feed wasn't designed for the purpose you are trying to use it for which is why it doesn't work. The video files listed in the feed are only able to be used by approved partners.

Though, we are looking into potentially creating a PS3 app which is something that would be much more useful.

Does anyone know why, or if there are any ways around not being able to watch Crunchyroll on my ps3...? When I try to log in, I fill the log in info out and when I click log in it just pretty much refreshes the page. I have wrote and begged for a ps3 app! I have Crunchyroll for my iphone4, ipad, and my computer. But let’s be honest.... who wants to watch there favorite anime on a phone or computer...? I don’t have cable and I don’t think I will ever get a cable service again! I have Hulu, Netflix, and Crunchyroll. I LOVE not having to watch commercials! Come on Crunchyroll!!!! PS3 APP!!!! I have a lot of friends who would buy a subscription in an instant if they could watch it on their TV through there ps3, but they just won’t pay for something that they can only watch on their iPhone or computer... It makes sense. I just want to end off saying, Crunchyroll really is a kick ass site, and once we can watch it on our TV it will have NO EQUAL!!!
