Ok first off , i have had this app for 2 weeks now at least and it is ALWAYS crashing , and it just keeps getting worse and worse. and i know it is the app because my netflix , daily motion and crackle are all working fine , only crunchy roll is crashing , making my entire xbox freeze so bad i can not even do anything on my xbox until i turn it off and half the time it just crashes a little and says " the servers at crunchy roll are not available at the moment " or something like that , even tho on xbox site it says crunchyroll is working fine.....and to make it worse i have tried lots of things to fix it with no luck such as clearing my cache and re installing it and waiting for a long time before trying again....

Secondly , why do these video only come in 720? when on a computer you are clearly told you can get 1020. only reason i can think of is that its not possible to do such a thing? but i also find that really hard to believe....maybe if it was wireless , but if some one is directly connected to there computer it should be fine i think.

Lastly , what is going on with this app and how and when will this be fixed?
p.s PLEASE fix it , and honestly you should be giving me a refund for this month of horrible service , i am sorry but it is true. i dont know why i still am subscribed to crunchyroll sometimes.

1080p would require yet another set of encodes. Those don't come without certain costs.

Be glad you are getting 720p, as outside of the PS3, the XBOX 360 is the only non-Flash device with that privilege. That is likely due to the number of consoles out there (vs. other devices like the Roku, Google TV, Samsung Smart TVs, etc.), but even those numbers pale in comparison to computers with browsers than can display Flash video.

It may also be that providing 1080p didn't bring in the return on investment expected (i.e., increase in subscriptions vs. cost and time to implement), but it is bad business to take away something that has already been given.

Hey thank's for the info = ) and that sounds very likely , but i still do not like the excuse much , since if they really cant afford to offer 1020 because of money issues ( which i assume is what you meant , when you said costs. i hope i am not taking that to literately , sorry if i am ) then i would gladly pay a extra 3 bucks or so to upgrade to 1020 since i love it so much...but it is not the end of the world and 720 is good enough i guess oh and btw , i wouldn't have gotten crunchyroll in the first place if it didn't have the 1020 video's , so yeah....>.<

"but it is bad business to take away something that has already been given" by that you are referring to how we had 1020 on the computer , but then we do not have it on the xbox right? And do you think they would profit more if they made it 1020? i know if i ever find a app for the 360 or some way to watch 1020 anime from a subscription like crunchyroll , on my tv i will cancel crunchy roll in a heart beat.

Lastly , " Yes, that's my real age " made me laugh since i admit i asked my self " is that his real age? " before i noticed it X D

I'm curious, why do you say 1020 instead of 1080? I thought initially it was a typo.

Yes, what I meant by "but it is bad business to take away something that has already been given" is that even if 1080p via the browser ended not bringing in the revenue they expected for the additional expense, dropping it would be have a too large a negative impact. Not offering something in the first place may have people asking, "Why not?", but taking something away that had been offered ticks people off an even makes those that didn't use it wary of the company.


Regarding my age, I put that in due to the fact that some people put in a fake birth date, sometimes random (I doubt anyone on CR is actually 100+), so I wanted people to know I actually earned my 52 years.

OMG i have been saying 1020? sorry , that was a typo. i must have had that number stuck in my head from something else , my bad XD . Thank you for pointing that out.

Yeah , that is what i thought for the most part and i agree , makes sense.

I have seen some pretty random fake birth dates before , like there real age was 25 , but they put there rp age as 26...and i do not understand why they even bother with such a small insignificant change like that lol and that was just on a chat room.

i guess that about wraps up this conversation unless you got a question for me , thanks for your time . later

PSN going on maintenance for 2 days made me go to the Xbox version for a short while.. omg it needs to be fixed.. the truncated bandwidth that Live puts on it makes it horrible. When I finally got it back on PSN I was so happy. It's inexcusable how bad it is on Xbox live. I mean the same damn connection was perfect on the PS3. Xbox REALLY needs to fix this.

Please fix the Xbox app.. my laptop is wireless and streams at 720p smoothly, but I try to watch the same episode on my xbox (wired into the same router that my laptop connects to wirelessly) and it isn't HD and it stutters/pauses/drops to some really low def periodically.

Why does it require me to re-log in every time I open the app? Fix this please.

I'm not sure. That was happening to me too, it stopped about a week ago, thankfully.


I am still experiencing other issues with the application. Shows stop to buffer constantly, the resolution dips frequently, and sometimes the application just quits.

The first two or three weeks after the app' was introduced to the XBOX, I had no problems with it. I wonder what the deal is now. It'd be nice to see something that acknowledges that the staff are aware there's an issue with the XBOX app' and they're fixing it/researching the problem. It's kind of discouraging to see so many complaints without any answers. We're not making this up, folks. The application has problems.
