Whenever I try to play 720p versions of the episodes I get green or purple flares all over the screen. Btw I've tried this on many series so it's not because of the mirrors, I think. It's really unwatchable and it's a problem because I want to watch it in 720p not 480. Anyway here's a screenshot so you can tell what I mean. Please do something about it.

If I'm lucky it's like this at best:



But mostly it's like this:

Your computer is crap and can't handle high quality.

Something is wrong on your end. It's probably due to Flash using your graphics card to decode the video.

Updating Flash and your video drivers will probably fix it.

You can try turning off Flash hardware acceleration instead for a quick-fix and that would probably fix it but I wouldn't recommend doing that as your PC might not be able to play 720p with it disabled plus the video won't look as good due to a lack of proper upscaling.

I updated my drivers and the flash and it works perfectly. Thanks.

Carbo@ Couldn't be more wrong. I have a very good PC.

Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 6500M/5600/5700 Series
Processor: AMD Phenom(tm) II N620 Dual-Core Processor (2 CPUs), ~2.8GHz
RAM: 6144MB

Plays Rift, Skyrim, Mass Effect 2, Dragon Age: Origins, Aion, etc on max settings. Also I've played blu-ray anime episodes in 1080p on this PC before without any issues but those were downloaded and wasn't connected to flash in any way. So it was probably just a issue with flash.

The described symptoms are not those of a computer that isn't fast enough.

I can't tell if you simply lack computer knowledge or were trolling, but given that you didn't know anything about the OP's computer, I'm leaning toward the latter.

Both, actually. I don't know anything about specs and all that bother.

If you're not going to be helpful, do not post in this section, ever.

At least the mod could provide some assistance? Meh, usual.

1. First thing I would try to do is disable hardware acceleration in flash temporary to see if that's an issue. You can get this by right clicking in the video player and selecting "settings..." a new window should pop up in the video player screen area and select the far left tab and there should be a checkbox with the title "Enable Hardware Acceleration" uncheck that and refresh the window. If the error still persists, enable it again. If this fixes the bug but gives your horrible frame rates continue.

2. Attempt to update your graphics card drivers, this could be a problem with the hardware decoding that your graphics card is trying to help with, try to get the drivers from AMD -> support

3. Disable any codec packs you might have installed, these can sometimes muck up what flash is trying to do. Again if this doesn't change anything you can re-enable them.

4. Check to make sure your running the latest version of flash player. Although crunchyroll's flash application is quite old there might be a problem with your hardware and an older version of flash.

Good Luck!

The problem was already solved, therefore I did not need to provide assistance.

What Kazuma said. As a matter of fact someone should close this now. Thanks for all the help.
