I haven't had that problem, but I've also got Adblock running. The only issue I've had is serious buffering problems when I watch CR via my Samsung TV or Samsung Blu Ray player. It's gotten so bad that I'm considering going back to watching CR via my computer again, and I have no idea if the problem is CR's app or my internet.

I been having some random lags every now and then when ever I try watching certain shows on my laptop. So I'm not even sure what's the problem. All I know is that I watch my favorite on my phone because I don't see lag on it and can get through an episode without having to hit the spacebar or refresh my browser.

Post a speed test and computer specs.

Before you were most likely on a SD stream that does not need much bandwidth nor high spec computer.

You are most likely running a 480P or higher feed, that does need a good connection and more horsepower.

I would also try clicking the SD feed on the video and see if it goes away. If it does, then move up slowly and see when it starts. Should be from SD, to 480, to 720 and 1080 last.

Another thing to consider is other people living with you (if applicable)/using the same network will affect your streaming abilities. For example, I ALWAYS use Pingtest.net ( http://www.pingtest.net/ ) FIRST to see what my ping is when other family members are home. (The lower the number the better). If the numbers are super high, I know I will NOT be able to stream in 1080 and don't even bother streaming until I get better result. I get the best results when I'm the only one home, so I try to do most of my streaming when I'm the only one home or after everyone else has gone to bed. Also try a lower resolution like 720 or 480 to see if you get better results. Keep in mind your computer needs to have a good processor and internet speed to stream in 1080.

thanks all. .. im lowering resolution hoping that helps. computer specs are damn near top end .. it was either a s2c issue or data transfer from my isp.

* and ya it auto set me to 1080. switching to sd worked.
i looked over the forums before posting quickly but could not find a sticky on this topic it may help to new members if they experience
the same thing.


Once again thank you everyone for your help

ill brows settins later see if i can set to auto start on sd vs 1080. to much bandwidth buffering for my ISP i guess
the last 6 epp i have watched no buffering lag.. but im on epp 23 of Total eclipse and all caught up now .. dammit the wait ~! for next epp ahh ^_^

Haha, yeah waiting sucks.

I would try and play in 720 and see if it works. HD anime is much better than SD. Some tittles it shows no difference, but the newer stuff is amazing.

I have a question falling within the same domain, which maybe you can answer. Can rural locations with sub-obsolete connections which are overburdened by users also effect streaming abilities? I don't have problems w/ CR but Funimation is a nightmare for me, especially late afternoon through evening. Have fooled w/ resolutions and run tests to ensure computer efficiency. Have a decent processor, so the only thing I can figure is the obscure location w/ ancient infrastructure. Too embarrassed to ask friends.

I'm not a computer expert, but I think that could play a role as well. I have noticed in my neighborhood that I get the absolute best streaming when it's either SUPER late at night OR on a weekday when most people are at work. (I work part time so sometimes I'm home during the week). Sometimes I have had problems streaming late afternoon and evening, when the majority of people are online. I live in a suburban area, so I'm not quite the same situation as you, but I'm sure the computer network in my area doesn't have the best infrastructure either. So my best answer is "maybe." Somebody with more expertise can probably give you a better answer. I try to work my streaming around when I can get the best results.

Thanks for your response! I'll go w/ my solution until I get an opportunity (guts) to ask a family member who owns a networking company. Knew I shouldn't have put off reading textbooks he gave me.
