If the difference between our 720p and 1080p encodes are too miniscule for you, then you are welcome to continue watching our 720p streams. However, there are people that have wanted this and we are giving it to them. So there is no value lost by providing a 1080p option.

By simply offering these people a resolution increase, you've pleased them, however minute those differences may be. But as a paid subscriber, I feel it is my duty to say "This isn't good enough." There's still plenty of potential behind this idea, but you need to continue pressing publishers to supply quality releases. You need to continue pressing your team to improve the player and encoding quality.

Regardless of whose fault it is, there's no reason a 1080p tag should be anywhere near this release:

I realize this is a major potential selling point for Crunchyroll, but I think a little honesty would go a long way. It comes off as quite the gimmick when viewing videos like above.


I posted a comment on the above video.

It was a problem with the source video we were given. We told them what was wrong and we received a replacement today which we are processing to replace the current encodes. This happens sometimes but we always do what we can to get a replacement and ensure future episodes are handled properly.

Hey, this is pretty nice! I stream Crunchyroll through my PS3, but since there isn’t a Crunchyroll app for still, I’ll probably buy a display port for my macbook so i can display it in my TV. BTW, anyone know which kind should i buy? This will be my first time trying such thing.


Buy this displayport to hdmi adapter below and then buy a whatever length hdmi cable you want online. What ever you do don't buy super overpriced hdmi cables in stores huge ripoff cheap cables work just as well as the signal is digital it either works or it doesn't.

Here is a cheap 15foot hdmi cable which is a good length for hooking up your laptop to your t.v and being able to use it from your couch.

for a 50-inch screen, the benefits of 720p vs. 480p start to become apparent at viewing distances closer than 14.6 feet and become fully apparent at 9.8 feet. For the same screen size, the benefits of 1080p vs. 720p start to become apparent when closer than 9.8 feet and become full apparent at 6.5 feet. In my opinion, 6.5 feet is closer than most people will sit to their 50″ plasma TV (even through the THX recommended viewing distance for a 50″ screen is 5.6 ft). So, most consumers will not be able to see the full benefit of their 1080p TV.


If you are a videophile with a properly setup viewing room, you should definitely be able to notice the resolution enhancement that 1080p brings. However, if you are an average consumer with a flat panel on the far wall of your family room, you are not likely to be close enough to notice any advantage.

whats most important will be quality-CR should just have made 720p better

Not yet ~ none of the devices support over 480p, but that may change as part of the changes they'll be rolling out this year.

Thanks! Know I know what kind of port I need. I have the HDMI cable that’s connected to my PS3, I believe that’ll work just fine. And thanks for the links. Now I’ll be able to watch anime in 1080p in my TV.

Seems a little choppy to me.

On my my gaming rig and my 2011 Air.

I've got fiber optic too...

I guess I'll continue to use 720p for now.
