This has also been happening to me about 5-6 days ago as well. Now Hulu, Netlfix on my PS3 works perfectly fine, and even Crunchyroll on my Xbox 360 works. I use my PS3 for streaming and movies, so I'm not going to use my Xbox for it. The PS3 version is obviously broken for some people, it has nothing to do with our internet. Hellgirl was getting good then this crap starts happening, and I prefer this dosen't happen with the new episode of Sword Art Online tomorrow

Let's try setting up Static IP or Automatic DNS to see if this resolves the issue.

To set a Static IP: http://portforward.com/networking/staticip-ps3-playstation-3.htm

Agreed, even though I tried the port forwarding ( it didn't work ), no one should have to do that since it was working perfectly fine almost a week ago. Haven't been able to watch crunchyroll all day.

Any new update for the app on the ps3?

because I have a problem with the app on the ps3, since they launched the app a few months ago it gets a black screen after loading the logo of Crunchyroll and then i cant do anything on the ps3 ( i cant even return to the xmb ), i have to force shutdown to turn it off

Do you have any solution?


Thanks

PS3 app cuts off Episode 8 of Durarara at 13 minutes (doesn't let you skip past 13 mins either, acts like it's a 13 min episode), yet works fine on the web??

Hopefully this doesn't start to happen on other series, already tired of dealing with the random freezes during playback or when simply selecting something to watch.

That sounds like the behavior of a bad encode. If someone else with a PS3 can confirm the exact same behavior, the fix is simple; CR will need to re-encode that episode.

Does Crunchyroll demand more bandwidth then other services like Hulu or Netflix?

I suppose it's a minor issue since it doesn't affect all the shows, but on shows like Super Robot Wars and Tower of Druaga, where the subtitles sometimes go lower than usual, they are cut off.

Which brings me to my main point: the PS3 app zooms/cuts off too much of the top and bottom of the videos. Can't you guys just add black bars or something to fit the screen and not have it forced to fill the screen so much?

I'm on an older PS3 slim with a 1080i TV.

Thanks guys!

Has anyone else besides me had their PS3 fail to power on after some heavy use of the app? I hope it was an isolated case but I'm a little worried about downloading the app again.

This sounds more like an issue of overscan than anything else. You using component?

If you are using HDMI, I assume you have a flat panel television rather than a CRT. While overscan is completely unnecessary and in fact detrimental to image quality (as it softens the image by no longer mapping pixels 1:1), some manufacturers still enable it by fault.

Unfortunately, it is not consistently labeled in the menus of all HDTV displays. I would suggest checking the manual for your HDTV. If you don't have one, your choices are to locate a PDF of one online, or simply dig through the menus.

It is also possible the PS3 itself might be doing the overscanning, but I doubt that would be set as the default, since it would cut off information displays in some games. It might be possible that it is enabled by default only for video playback, but I also doubt that. A fellow PS3 owner should be able to address that, but I suspect the overscan is set in your TV.

Yeah, I'm on a flat panel LCD. I don't notice anything cut off in games or when playing blu-ray videos, but would this still be an issue in Crunchyroll? I don't notice it in hulu or netflix either. I'll see if can find something in my TV options, but it seems odd it would only affect this app.

Without overscan involved, the only way the subtitles would be cut off would be if they were literally placed on the screen improperly, in which case I would expect a rash of reports. On a flat panel display with no overscan, the results should be the same as when viewing on a computer.

If I had a PS3, I could check out those two series and see what results I get (since I know my HDTV is set not to overscan), but unfortunately, I don't.

Druaga is old enough that it would have been encoded with only computer monitors in mind, meaning CR would have had little reason at the time not to put the subtitles down at the very bottom of the screen. Almost everything you see on Hulu and Netflix is not only more recently encoded, but they've supported viewing on TV for quite some time (especially Netflix, which was the original reason for the Roku's existence).
