The Advertising on the free SD streams for the show "Problem Children are Coming from Another World, aren't they?" ( http://www.crunchyroll.com/problem-children-are-coming-from-another-world-arent-they ) isn't working properly via the iPad App or on my desktop. Most episodes are either Ad free or the Ads look like this:



Distorted video, but the audio is fine. I have seen this on a few series lately. The shows themselves play just fine. Only the Ads are "garbled".

Hope it helps. Cheers.

Is it a specific ad by chance? Like the same one each time?

Nope. Fairly random.... Though the Ads don't change much. I think they've been running Wal-Mart and Direct-TV Ads for about two weeks now. The image in my original post is a cap from a Direct-TV Ad.

I know on CR videos this tended to be an issue with how the videos were encoded working against your graphics card.
The work around was disabling Hardware Acceleration, but that's no longer an option in Flash.

Is this just affecting Ads? Or is it shows too?

Just the Ads. The shows are crystal clear and look great. I think CR's video encoding for the shows is excellent.

I was at one time and lately I've thought about renewing. I might give premium another spin soon.

Happened again. Different series, different commercial/Ad.... Though it was another DirectTV Ad, but a different one from my original post. Screen shot below...



This happened in an episode of Campione! http://www.crunchyroll.com/campione Quite possible that you might want to check the encoding on your DirectTV Ads.

This is from my iPad, btw.

Cheers.
