Now that the paywall has come down I started to stream CR on my 360 again.

I remember dealing with a lot of skipping a year ago, and was kind of hoping that it would have at least been marginally resolved, but it's really worse than ever.

Not only do you encounter those spots where things permanently skip(rewinding past the skip will just trigger the skip again), but now I get small little temporary skips almost every episode as well where I can rewind past where the skip was and it'll just play normally as if there was never an issue in the first place.

It sucks because I was really hoping to get some use out of my 360 again, but I really can't stand to have to constantly turn my controller back on, then rewind to try to see what I had just missed for the last 15 seconds or so while trying to watch any given episode of a show.

Okey, the date of this comment is 12.06.2014!! And I confirm from just watching Hunter X Hunter on my Xbox that the shipping problem is still here... I have paid for premium for about 3 months just because there is an Xbox app and I really like to watch Anime on my HD TV. But like everybody else is saying, there is 1 to several 10-20 seconds skips in every god damn episode. Plz don't ignore this thread and do something about it!
Maybe ask the Netflix team for some help? Cause I have no problems watching movies on their Xbox app.

I'm having the same issue with Hunter x Hunter. I'm at episode 123 and literally every episode so far has had at least one time skip of at least 10 seconds. I also had problems with Akame ga Kill and some of the Monogatari series. It seems to be a consistent problem no matter what show.

Edit: Should be noted I have the problem with both Xbox 360 and laptop streaming, but more noticeably on the 360.

Bjaker started an official thread on this issue about a month ago. I noted 8 days ago that a new build of the player for the 360 app should be coming soon, but I haven't heard anything from Baker since then.

Arghh just when I can finally watch CR on my xbox for free this issue comes up. Skipping in the middle of an episode SUCKS and ruins the whole feeling of the episode. Hope this gets fixed soon. I was really enjoying watching on TV

Getting random temporary skips watching Little Busters on the Xbox app here. I hope there's a fix soon.

It's been five months since the last post, but I'm having the same issue while trying to watch Fairy Tail. I have 100 mb internet, and my 360 is connected by ethernet to a highend Asus router.

I would like to start off by saying I'm glad I'm not the only one with this problem. I use Crunchyroll on my PS3 and I've had episodes jump from 10 seconds to 1 minute+ (1-3 times an episode) and the quality will go bad and/or the voices will go out of sync. Very persistent. Very annoying. It happens with any episode of any anime I watch. There's nothing wrong with my controller or my connection. I've made sure those weren't the issue. It even skips when I have my controller off.

It's frustrating when you have to rewind everything when you're immersed into an anime and all of the sudden the awesome part just cuts out or it's jumping randomly at any part. There's even points where I'll rewind it and it'll just jump back forward to where it was over and over and over which causes me to miss out on that 10 seconds to 1 minute+ of dialogue. At times it makes me not even want to watch the episode of whatever it is I'm watching or anything for that matter.

I've closed and opened the app multiple times, I've turned my PS3 off and on multiple times, I've reset my router multiple times, I've even deleted the app and re-installed a few times to see if I could get rid of the issue but no luck. I'm hoping this issue gets resolved soon so I can watch anime without having to hold my finger over the L2 trigger every episode.

Oh wow, it's still a problem? Crunchyroll sure has fallen as a company... Roku still has many issues as well that they don't care to fix.
