It only shows half the movie.. unless I choose horrible 480p definition. Very strange. And frustrating.

What device are you using to view the movie?

And I am assuming you are referring to the Drama since the anime is no longer offered on Crunchyroll. I would check to see if it works for me, but I do not have a drama or an all-access membership.

Just looking to watch it on the website. yeah, the jdrama. I know they changed the name to something silly like the Time Traveller Girl or something. I was watching it at 1080p and enjoying it and then glanced down at the status bar and saw that it was a whole 47 minutes long and I was like.. wow.. they really made this into a short movie. then I looked at the comments and saw that Crunchy only had the 1st half. I didn't want to tease myself so I figured I'd come back in a few days when it was fixed. I came back and it looked the same to me. I read more user comments under the episode and apparently if you select a lower quality stream then you can see the whole movie. Never seen anything like that on Crunchy. I would settle for 720p but that didn't work for me either although for some of the other posters it apparently did. I have to go down to 480p to get it to play the whole movie. I mean I would watch it at 480p if that were really the only option but clearly 1080p should be available since I can watch the 1st half of the movie at 1080p....

It sounds as if CR needs to push out a new HD encode.

As TAO already says, it sounds like a bad encode. You should also fill out their Contact Us form by clicking on the "Video playback problems?" underneath the movie (or any video for that matter) just to make sure that Bjaker sees this and can work on getting a new video up ASAP, in case you havn't done so already.

BTW, how does it compare to the anime? I really enjoyed the anime. When my anime subscription comes up for renewell in February I am thinking about going back to the All-Access membership. Hopefully CR has another holiday deal like they did two years ago. (I was able to get a yearly all-access subscription for only $70)

I'm only halfway through the half of the movie that I have access to lol. I wanna go rewatch the anime.. basically it seems like a totally different story to me. They both have a female lead and involve time travel. I expect it's going to be good since I always enjoy time travel movies.
