Hi guys,

I've just got myself one of the new Asus Eee Pad Transformer Android 3.0 tablets.

Let me say now that the screen on this tablet is AMAZING for anime capable of 720p playback without scaling and it's an IPS panel so the colours and viewing angle are super super super, most likely better than the monitor on your PC.

I actually pulled up the crunchyroll site on the pad and was able to stream anime in 720p with subtitles. However occasionally it would drop a few frames and wasn't quite the smooth experience needed to match the amazingly sharp visuals, but it was very close.

If Crunchyroll released an optimised app I'm sure we could achieve a smooth framerate on all the upcoming tegra-2 based Android 3.0 tablet devices.

Pretty please look into this I can't wait to watch 720p anime on my tablet!

By the way what format is the 720p content encoded in? (I'm guessing h.254 what profile/bitrate?)

Many thanks

Hopefully when Adobe releases the final version of Flash 10.2 for honeycomb that will take advantage of dual core processors that will solve the problem.

I'm running 10.2 for android 3.0.1 but still lags, close though.

I have an eerie feeling though that crunchyroll 720p is high profile MP4. The limit of the Tegra 2 hardware acceleration is Main profile. You can't see the quality difference on a small device but it makes the difference between smooth playback and not.

It can do High profile VC-1 though if crunchyroll feel up to it lol.

With the new update to 3.1 for Xoom and upgrade to Flash 10.3, 720p and playback through the regular website is much better. Not silky smooth but no more pauses and hiccups.

I also have the Asus Transformer and can't get HD 720p streaming to work through the App.

I too have the Asus transformer, but I have no luck getting 720p to play when I use the browser to try and play videos. The android app works great, but I would love to see a tablet optimized version or the option within the current app to specify a video quality setting. Videos currently look alright on the screen when its sitting on my lap, but once I hook the tablet up to a TV with the hdmi out, things get ugly.

Can't retire the htpcs yet it seems, but keep up the great work cr!

For the transformers out there, the new update that pushed a few days ago. I been running a few videos from stock browser at 720p smoothly, some people at XDA found reinstalling Adobe (uninstall and reinstall from marketplace seems to help if your having issues)

This has been bugging me for a while. My sister has an iPad2 and I compared the quality of app video quality to my Xoom. The Crunchyroll app's video quality is horrible on Honeycomb tablets compared to iPads. It's so bad, I basically choose not to watch Crunchyroll on my tablet which sadly was one of the things I looked forward to after purchasing my Xoom back in February.

The Crunchyroll iOS app is much better developed. The iOS app allows landscape browsing, screen rotation in video and menus, and most importantly high quality video playback.

Please show some love for the Honeycomb users!

Crunchyroll for Android tablets have been released a few months ago. Please check the Android Market or update the app if you have it on your Android tablet. Strangely, CR never told us that there is a tablet-optimized app within the mobile app itself.

Developing apps on Android Honeycomb is actually pain in the ass. The Honeycomb emulator used in Android SDK is so slow that it drives developers crazy. It's already good enough that CR developers managed to develop the app at the first place. Plus, the android tablet market is quite small compared to the iPad. You have more luck using the browser version to watch anime on Crunchyroll. Its no suprise that the iOS app version deserves more attention compared to the android version.

We're working on adding in higher quality video for our Android app. Though, it will most likely be restricted to devices with Android 3.2 and higher which would include the upcoming Android 4.0 that merges the functionality present in Android 2.3 (phones) and Android 3.2 (tablets). This is because previous versions of Android don't have any DRM tools.
