My Internet connection is a little unstable, and my PS3 is the main device through which I use Crunchyroll. When the connection is good, it's just enough to support steady HD video, but its performance degrades at certain times of the day, which causes CR videos to spend more time buffering than playing.

Part of this, I believe, is due to the fact that the PS3 app seems to always go for the highest resolution possible (unlike, say, Netflix, which adjusts it on the fly). Is there a way to configure the PS3 app to limit itself to loading 480p video? I never have any trouble with video at that resolution. I know I can configure the Flash player to do so, and it always works when I do it.

There currently is not, but this is a great suggestion so will pass it along to development!

I just did a forum search looking for an answer to this very problem. I live out in the country where my internet is garbage. It can support standard definition no problem but HD gives me issues. Currently when I stream CR on my PS3 I have to pause the stream for about 2-3 minutes at first just to make sure the episode is sufficiently buffered so I can play the entire episode problem free. While this workaround does work and work very well, having to sit there for several minutes at the beginning of every episode does get old pretty quick.

There definitely needs to be a way to manually throttle the resolution or have it auto adjust the same way netflix does based on internet speed. I know I would definitely appreciate it as I'm sure many others with similar circumstances would as well.

There may not be a way to adjust the resolution on the crunchyroll app, but you can always adjust the resolution on the ps3 itself which will of course limit the resolution the app can generate.

That may limit the displayed resolution, but I would be surprised if that actually affects the bandwidth and data used to deliver the video.
