Why doesn't Crunchyroll Android app stream in HD?

Curious since I have a limited premium account and it streams fine in HD on my PS3.

Will there be an update that brings this feature?

Hopefully at some point? I would like this too. However I just found out that if I access the Full site (not mobile version) on my Galaxy S3 using the Maxthon browser(chrome does not work for me) I can stream 720p no probs, so it's better than nothing

This is way overdue, been waiting years for this. I don't think there are many SD android devices anymore. Crunchyroll needs to make their app modern by adding HD streams. I can't think of another streaming application that doesnt offer HD streams on android. Thanks for the Maxthon tip, it works but its less than ideal due to using flash. We need something native and we need it now.

I just got the Sony xperia Z1 that has a 1080p screen and the whole stream looks like pastel art.

As a certain Ancient person will eventually say. The android app currenty streams at 360p.
They are working on a update, but no ETA is provided.

You could always try to forcefully install flash player on your android and see if you can use the full desktop website version?

Hey everyone!

All iOS and Android devices only play in 480P. We hired this new guy who's AMAZING! Right now the Android app has really improved and we've noticed there's barely any emails regarding glitches ever since he's been hired. He's now working on updates like supporting HD and a proper functional search engine for the android app. Makes me regret giving away my android phone..


I have no idea when exactly this will all be released though, just know it is being worked on.

When was 480p support added for Android? The last I recall Bjaker confirm, it was still only 360p for it (vs. 480p for iOS).

Watch in from your browser, you can stream at 1080p.

There area few browsers that support flash, firefox, boat and photon, or for best results imo you can root and install the aosp browser which also supports flash.

Just make sure you install flash from adobes website and set the screen to not sleep, also use plugins always on for crunchyroll.

I'll believe it when I see it. We've been told you are working on adding HD for a looooong time now. (at least 1-2 years since I started asking).

Consider they recently introduced an OUYA app that supports HD, and the OUYA runs Android, I would think that should suffice as evidence actual effort is being put forth.

Good to know. That does give hope.
