Sometimes when watching a video directly off the website, the Crunchyroll logo on the top right will continue to appear and disappear almost every few seconds. It seems to correspond to when the colors change from bright to dark (like, say, a switch from an interior scene to an outside scene, and vice versa).

What determines the appearance of the logo, and what can I do to reduce/disable it from appearing at all?

You can't do anything about the logo. It's one of a few things that CR adds to their videos in order to cut down on the piracy of their own videos. If a video with that logo appears on an illegal site, and Crunchyroll sees it, they can require that it be taken down, and the site must submit to their request or they could be the target of a sure-loss lawsuit. Another anti-piracy measure is the "Exclusive Stream for <username>" message at the beginning of every episode. If CR's video ends up on another site, they'll know who put it there, and then take appropriate measures against that user.

To answer your other question, I'm not sure what the trigger for the logo might be. ._. Sorry.

Okay, so near as I can tell, the frequency of the logo appearing seems to coincide with the change between a light and dark source. I verified this with a few shows like Little Witch Academia, which would feature constant light sources (like magic performed in a dark cave). Basically, every time there was a change in color temperature, the logo would appear.

I'm watching content at 1080p if that matters, and I've tried it on both Firefox and Internet Explorer.

Here's an example of the frequency of the logo. Here it is in one scene...



And here it is nearly a minute later.



It shouldn't be appearing that frequently, should it?

It's been some time since I submitted the question to support, but so far I haven't heard back.

I'm still not sure if the issue is on my end or not, but even now the situation is the same: the logo keeps appearing every couple of minutes through the duration of each episode.

Sorry.
I can't really make out the times listed in the screenshots.

15:30 in the first screenshot, 16:51 in the next.

I can provide more examples if needed.
