This has been said before I'm sure but the random watermarking ( grey crunchy roll icon ) is quite distracting, I'd rather it displayed at the opening and ending of the video ( I'm assuming the purpose of it is to mark the video somewhere so if a pirate copies it that can be identified ) a smaller constant icon would also be better.

Subtitles seem to be translated well but they are too large, covering nearly the entire width of the screen, which makes it more difficult than usual to read.

I believe the watermark appears just before and after what would be the commercial breaks for free viewers. I've never really paid much attention, however, as I don't notice if it is there or not unless I am looking at that area of the screen when it appears or disappears.

As to the subtitles, I fully expect that if CR reduced the size of the subtitles, there would be someone posting a complaint they were too small.

I thought about it a bit more, its true, If the logo was made constant too then some people would complain that it was better when it flashed on and off, I actually think that the logo is unnecessary because the subtitles themselves act as a unique marker, although I suppose its possible at the moment that people could separate the video from the subtitles, in which case you would need to make the subtitles part of the frames which would mean you can't have multiple languages, might not be a problem if your servers are localized ( it says im accessing the UK website, therefore I don't need Spanish subtitles ). I think though if the current logo was shown for the intro story and opening music video part then disappeared, it would achieve the same effect but be much less detrimental.

This watermark is extremely irritating. I've noticed that I only see it when watching it from the browser, but why use it at all?
I never look directly at the corner of the screen, but its very apparent when it shows up. It seriously ruins my mood.

So that if people try to rip the video, it will always have the watermark in the corner.

The watermark is actually part of the player and not the video, rips don't have the watermark.

It doesn't annoy me at all but it is kind of useless.
