Fairy Tail Episode 124 – The Seven Year Gap is missing it's subtitles on Roku. Not the first time this has happened with that show.

Now I'm busy trying to understand why it's skipping every other second on PC... Grrr....

The Flash version skipping was probably just everyone hammering the server and has fixed itself. However the Roku version is still missing it's subtitles. :-(

The Roku version might be hardsubbed. If it is hardsubbed then it could be that when you tried to watch it it hadn't yet been encoded with subs, so the version you were watching was raw. Encoding probably would have finished by now. It probably just means that you have to wait a little while after the simulcast for it to finish encoding in the future. Encoding shouldn't take long though. It would probably be less than a 1 hour wait.

I believe I heard that this also happens with the iPhone app sometimes. It's because Crunchyroll has to encode 10 or more different versions of each episode for all of the different devices and video quality settings. Sometimes encoding takes too long and a version isn't finished when the episode is simulcast.

That makes sense.

Thanks.
