I'm just wondering if many others experience what I experience. I have a very nice and fast gaming computer. I'm tech savvy. I have a fast cable connection. I have followed CR recommendations to fix video issues.

Yet, my streaming Anime video experience with CR is [email protected] Every video faulters in numerous ways, every time I watch. It's painful and frustrating. I do not have this problem anywhere else.

How about you?

I pretty much always have problems with 1080 and very often with 720 if it's a new episode of a popular show. I have a 40/10 connection and a gaming rig. Watching HD streams (even several at the same time) is no problem on other sites. I've had these problems with CR for years.

I'm 10 jumps away from the server with no timeouts or noticable problems (~30ms at most). Ping also looks good. There just doesn't seem to be enough juice to power what's being offered the premium customers where I live at the moment. My theory is that it has to do with fast growth and priorities as to what region gets a new datacentre first.

I still think premium is worthwhile considering how cheap it is, but I would have had a lot less patience with something like netflix. If there had been any real alternative to CR, chances are I'd switch a while back.

Have to agree with everyone here. Got a badass gaming rig, and I'm about to upgrade the gpu as well, specifically because it can't handle Dolphin, and yet 1080p and 780p stutter and stall a lot. Even on the family computer, which is a really decent i7, has lag. Dunno if the cpu or gpu makes more of a difference, but in the emulation community, I was told resolution depended more on gpu.

Sooo. I hope whatever is causing this gets fixed soon. I didn't upgrade for Crunchyroll, but still, it'd be a nice addon to re watch everything in HD.

Yes, but only when my brother's uploading youtube videos, so I'm fairly certain the problem's on my end for me. I just watch 480p until he's done.

For HD it might stutter once or twice, so I usually pause the video for a little while and it works as smooth as a soft serve ice cream once I press play again.

Yeah, I have issues streaming at 1080p and 720p, but then again I'm often watching Crunchyroll on my not-so-powerful laptop with my good-enough-but-could-be-so-much-better Internet connection. So in my case, the problem may not entirely be Crunchyroll's fault... However, a friend of mine who keeps his computers up to date and has a fantastic Internet connection at his home sometimes has issues streaming Crunchyroll. Very annoying when we're doing a marathon through a series!

While CR seems to encourage streaming as soon as a show is released, that's usually when I get slowdowns and low resolution videos. I've pretty much given up on anything higher than 480p since I have to keep pausing to build up the buffer when I try to view it higher.

Not a big deal now, but will be if I ever try to route this to my TV instead of the computer screen.

I'm alright the video keeps going and flows easily, but whenever my connection speed is slow the resolution is set to lower setting. Soooo nothing terrible...Iphone btw
