Feature Request:

1. Add a marker that can be clicked to skip the opening scene of credits.
2. Add a marker at the end that allows the closing credits to be skipped and the preview to the next episode to be viewed.

Existing Setup:

1. Currently the video begins at the very beginning and it is necessary for the viewer who does not need to see the same opening credits (again and again) to estimate when the new material begins.
2. The same is true for the ending credits.

Actually, credit-skipping certainly would be a nice function.

As song-subs don't look like they'll be happening any time soon, skipping the opening and closing credits is something i would love to be able to do.

Or... to put in another way, the only reason i'd ever sit through the credits is if they were subbed.

So, if song-subs aren't doable, please implement the ability to skip them.

Actually, there have been a couple shows in the past that have included song subtitles; Usagi Drop is one example I can remember. Whether this happens or not is up to the individual that is translating and subtitling the series.

It isn't.

It requires negotiating separate rights, as subtitles for songs are considered lyrics.

It's Japanese audio. It needs English subs.

Rights or not, it really is as simple at that. if I could understand Japanese witout subtitles I wouldn't be using a subtitled Anime service.

Like right now, I'm just starting Love Lab and have paused it to hunt down a YouTube video of the subtitled opening.

Kokoro Connect
Attack on Titan
Watamote
Haiyore! Nyarko-san

The opening and/or closing themes really need the words as they are tied into the series.

And then there are shows like Oreimo where most episodes have an individual ending theme which is directly tied into one of that episode's character or plot.

If it requires extra rights then CR really need to acquire them as song lyrics are an intrinsic part of the show. Because what's the point of an officially licensed service that is inferior to unlicensed offerings?

Or, as my current status reads: "If I can hear it, I need to read it."

I would also like markers to skip to specific parts a video:
1. Both the start and end of openings and credits because they're sometimes not at the very beginning or end of the video.
2. Both the start and end of the half time/commercial break transition skit.
3. Have a right click context menu with labels to go to each marker.
4. Add a new keyboard shortcut to skip to the next marker.

Thank you!
