I think the issue with the new ver of Flash is how it does the scaling...

On my laptop, which is connected to my 1080p TV I get a clear non-pixelated image when watching 1080p content; but when I try watching the 1080p (or anything) on my desktop (running at 1680x1050 resolution), the subs and controls look like crap.

I wonder if the update could have somehow toggled off video smoothing?

Actually, it looks exactly like fullscreen without video smoothing. Here's a some things that I've noticed:

1. As has been stated, if you go to fullscreen before the video loads, you're okay.
2. Going to fullscreen after video loads, the video does not have any smoothing.
3. You lose the special right-click features during fullscreen, so you are not able to turn off subtitles, select video smoothing, subtitle smoothing, etc. Now, when you go to fullscreen before the video loads, you have the full set of right-click options. Same with right-clicking when not in fullscreen.
4. When in windowed mode after the video has loaded, and you access the right-click menu, selecting "enable fullscreen" does NOT enable fullscreen initially (this could just be me though). Of course, the enable fullscreen button works as it should.

All of these are most likely tied to the same issue.

Update: Just noticed this, and this might be of help to everyone experiencing these problems.

When video is playing from the page, rightclick and enable subtitle smoothing. Fullscreen works properly once I did this. This does take a bit more CPU though, but if your system can handle it, this should help everyone out until Crunchyroll is able to fix this problem.

Some people won't like this solution, but this issue doesn't seem to occur when watching videos with...Internet Explorer 9.

Have you checked to verify that you aren't simply still running under Flash 11.1 (or earlier) in IE?

As IE uses an ActiveX control for Flash, it is entirely possible to be running a completely different version of Flash than other installed browsers.

I use Chrome for most things. I just checked my Flash versions and IE9 has an updated version compared to Chrome.

IE9 has 11.2.202.233

Chrome has 11.2.202.229

BOOOOO!!!

Actually, the videos do look okay with IE9 and the 11.2.202.233 is the most recent version of Flash that it's running. Firefox and Chrome still look all jaggy while IE9 playback is totally fine.

But still, BOOOOO to IE9.

I refuse to use IE anything if I can help it, still running IE8 and have not upgraded to IE9 cause well IE9 is riddled with website viewing problems
I have since uninstalled Flash plug in and back dated the flash version to 11.1.102.62 which corrected this problem and a more serious stutter problem I was having.
you can get the earlier versions from http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/archived-flash-player-versions.html
I have turned off updates to flash until the problem is corrected. So if you can update somewhere in these forums once corrected so I can update flash and turn on automatic updates again .

I use Firefox 12.0 beta

Thanks

IE9 is leaps and bounds over IE8. If using IE is what makes my anime play smoothly and not all chunky then that's what I'll do.

If you have reasonably powerful computer, you may also want to try the tip CultLeaderLettuce posted earlier in this topic.

I already had subtitle smoothing enabled prior to the Flash upgrade, and noticed no degradation in fullscreen video after the Flash upgrade (and still have access to all the options while in fullscreen).

Excellent. Thank you. I will give that a spin as well. Appreciate the help here.

There are 4 issues that are tied into the recent update to Flash 11.2

1. Video shows up entirely as green, or there are green artifacts throughout. (Affects users with NVIDIA cards.)
2. Video and Audio are out of sync.
3. Video pixellates when in full-screen mode.
4. Color shifts in some videos. (a persons pigment/coloration may be shifted down half the frame)

You can try rolling back to Flash 11.1 to resolve some of the issues that you are experiencing.

First run the uninstaller, then install the version of flash you wish to have on your PC.

Hopefully this will help clear up some of these issues!
