I have been having this issue for a while, but it has only come to an irritable point over the last 24 hours; I will be watching an episode, streaming it on my Xbox and it will be playing through a scene, will then seamlessly (no pause or anything) jump back or forward X amount of time in the episode, will play for about ten seconds and will then skip back to being where it was in the first place (on course).

(Example: I will be at 10:00 into an episode, it will then skip to 11:20, play until 11:30, then skip back and begin playing from 10:01.)

The issue would usually only happen once in an episode and would only happen randomly. But last night, watching Sword Art Online; and today, watching Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet - the episodes have skipped around so badly that it's actually been difficult to keep up with what's happening in the episodes.

Has this been happening to anyone else? Does anyone know of any possible fixes? All I have tried so far was uninstalling the app, clearing my Xbox cache and re-installing the app to no avail.


Thanks for any responses.

According to [url="http://www.crunchyroll.co.uk/forumtopic-807807/stream-consistently-skips-10-20-seconds#43533977"]this post in this thread, they are doing a mass re-encode to fix this issue.

Re-Encode is done.

If you can supply show / episode / time during episode this happens it will help us look into the issues.

Thanks! I also had a lot of problems with episode 61 that one skipped several times throughout the episode. It is normally one in every 8 or so episodes that skips.

I watched several epsiodes of Fate/Zero last night and this happened in almost every one of them. It's extremely annoying.

Decided to post here since they never read the one in the Site news LOL Xbox has been having skipping issues since it started. That's why I don't use it anymore. To say it's fix is incredibly misleading. Heck I rewatch Chihayafuru to the point where I know it by heart and it always skips in random places. Even rewind doesn't fix it. So I just use my PS3 ap.

Just signed up for this service after watching some awesome anime last night, ig et home tonight and alls i keep getting is error unable to connect and crap, tried reinstalling, same deal,

Was also constantly getting the skips in episode 119 and 120 of bleach before i gave up, figuring i should cancel that membership before my free trial is up, unwatchable anime isnt worth anything.

The re-encode seems to have fixed a few problems I had where it would randomly skip in some shows but I've started to encounter more than before now. I checked out a few shows I've already seen before on random episodes and they all have skips now, before when I watched them all together a while back they played fine but now they seem a mess. Episode 2 and 7 of Dusk Maiden of Amnesia skips before the opening theme ends, Episode 6 and 7 of School Days also skips before the opening ends and Gosick Episode 4 skips during the opening too. I didn't watch all these episodes again, just checked the first few minutes out. I can imagine the rest of the episode and others probably have more skips too. Have been watching anime on my computer for a while now instead.
