I like the crunchyroll player and how it organizes all of your shows but one improvement the site could use is indicate better how popular a show/video is. Yes there is the standard page which shows viewing rankings but I'd like to see actual numbers a la Youtube. Seeing a finite number I think would bring more people to Crunchyroll vids in general because when people see high count numbers on videos it'll pique their curiousity. At least whenever I'm on other video websites, I like to check out videos with high view counts.

What do you guys think?

It's not all about the view count, it is whether or not the views were sustained or just dropped a few seconds in.

Meh, I only would be interested in an individual episode's view count.

^ same. But even then I don't think its interesting enough for CR to put money into it.

CR needs more shows.
but with them having to pay and licencing I guess it's understandable
but with more than 100,000 subscribers I'm sure they will figure something out (hopefully)

It's not that they can't do it nor even hard to do. I think that they want to keep the viel on this to keep that smoke and mirror effect on to actually how big a show is.

Would you want a competing company like FUNimation or even fansubber to know your numbers, the weaknesses and strenghts of your whole company? This place isn't so much like YouTube or VEOH because the majority of the videos aren't user submisssion. I believe that the view count is more of a proprietory move than anything.
