Really disappointed. I came to Crunchyroll from Dattebayo to follow Bleach and Naruto. Seems you have made the same mistake ATT made by not matching their network growth to the uptake in smart phones in the market. I stream HD from Youtube and Netflix all the time with no problem. I used to enjoy 480 and 720 content on Crunchyroll all the time. It seems in the last few months even SD content can't buffer at a rate that matches the need for real time streaming. I have to pause, wait play, pause, wait, play, Getting very frustrated. Feel like a victim of a bait and switch. Wishing I had been one of the people helping to petition Dattebayo's keeping Naruto and Bleach free and available for DL. I have also sent several e-mails on the topic. To which, I have yet to ever receive a reply. How does one initiate discussions of a termination of service and a refund? Man I wish Bleach and Naruto were back on DB...

that can be your internet Bandwidth

videos that are 24 minutes long:
SD is 55 MB
480P is 150 MB
720P is 280 MB

because it works fine for me.

I stream hi def from Netflix all the time. Plays for over an hour just fine... With the same ISP I have had for years. I'm wondering if it's more of a geographic issue...

You may want to look at this thread: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-627053/help-with-video-playback-problems?pg=34#35712225 I have been having problems streaming and I posted over in that particular thread. One poster noticed that people who use AT&T seem to be having problems lately (like me!). It may help if you send Crunchy a pingtest. (See the first post of the thread here: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-627053/help-with-video-playback-problems?pg=0). Like you, I haven't been having streaming problems anywhere else (but I use Hulu, not Netflix). I'm hoping this streaming issue gets fixed soon.
