Hmmm. If that's a problem. I don't know if you know this already but if you right click on the video you have the option of enabling/disabling subtitles and video smoothness. That might be the case. Give that a try

Unfortunately, there's no "right click" function on a playbook

I find that subtitles usually work, but will occasionally "hang". If I "pause" the video, the subtitle will appear. Has to be something in the video player. Occasionally the whole thing crashes, or just won't run at all. And I find that I get these issues more often in the early evening (which I imagine correlates to the most usage), so it may be just a timing issue with the java viewer. Fortunately, you can just resize the whole webpage to make the video "look" fullscreen on the playbook.

We don't officially support the Playbook, but I'll send a device request along the the Development team.

The Playbook still isn't a supported device.

You can try the mobile site to see if that works. m.crunchyroll.com

It used to work before, that's the odd part. It worked for a few months and then stopped working out of nowhere. The video plays fine in fullscreen, just no subtitles for whatever reason which doesn't make any sense

I've tried the mobile version before.. But it doesn't work either unfortunately

That is an issue with the Flash player. And since Adobe has stopped supporting flash on mobile devices, I am afraid that it may never work again on the Playbook.

Does Playbook have a right click type of command? Like pressing and holding on the video? I've never used a Playbook so I am unfamiliar with the controls.

EDIT: A quick Google search shows that you can "right click" on a Playbook if you are using a Bluetooth keyboard and press Shift+F10. You can try that if you have a Bluetooth keyboard.

Ai.. This sucks, lol
Damn adobe!!

Sadly.. The playbook doesn't have a "right click" kind of option.. So there's no way for me to adjust the settings for flash

This is the weird part.. So if i play a video in fullscreen with the subtitles missing.. When i pause the video, the subtitles appear, but when i resume the video, they disappear again after a few seconds

Flash player version: 11.1.121.66

Sorry, I was editing my previous post when you posted. Read my edit and see if that may be an option for you to try.

Was just reading something about BB remote having a right click function.

Sorry but I have no idea what BB remote is, but maybe it was something you have used or heard of. People were talking about how they were using it to right click some websites with it on their Playbooks.

i know what they were referring to. it's when you use your blackberry as a touchpad and it gives you the option to right click

so.. i tried it out.. but unfortunately all it does is pause the video when i use that function, so the right click itself is like a left click in other words, lol
it doesn't give me any extra functions.. ai
