I signed up for a free trial today, and installed it on my ps3 slim. Any time I try to open / load a show, it appears to start loading, showing the rotating icon in the bottom right corner, which halts after two seconds of loading. It appears to freeze for a moment, and the selection screen is back. Please help!

Another thing of note, crunchyroll works fine on my iPad and pc. I tried the nslookup suggested in another thread, and received a timed out response within 2 seconds.

I recall having experiences where I had to wait about 30 seconds for the screen on the PS3 to go from a black screen to the showing. There wouldn't be any additional buffering afterwards. Have you let it sit on the black screen for awhile?

It stays on this screen when loading. I leave it alone for any amount of time, and nothing happens except the loading circle stops spinning, then disappears. (My apologies for upside down picture, not sure why it is)

Ha, no problem about the upside-down picture.

Does it just happen with Free, or does it happen with more than just that anime? Have you tried any more?
I recall seeing the workers here advising other people with problems that are kinda like yours to delete and re-download/re-install the app. Maybe something went wrong during the download or installation before! It's hard to tell, really.

But if you're willing to take the time to give it a shot, I'd say it wouldn't hurt! ^_^

I had tried other shows with the same result. I deleted then reinstalled the app, and tried again. I've tried Naruto, Bleach, Free, Hunter x Hunter. All have had the same thing occur. I have a feeling that no matter what show I try it will be the same :(. I tried resetting my router as well. This is so frustrating and disappointing. The main reason I want a premium membership is to watch shows on my ps3.

Okay, so it looks like it was my DNS settings. I had it set up to view American Netflix. When I changed it back to default DNS, I was able to view shows on crunchyroll. I guess I'll have to do a switchamaroll each time I want to watch crunchyroll.

Another solution to this problem is to open up the ports mentioned below in your router.

TCP:
80
443
5223

UDP:
3478
3479
3658
