Workaround:

Dolphin browser
+ Dolphin Jetpack
+ flash APK file downloaded from the Dolphin labs page. http://dolphin.com/lab/en

Then you can watch in HD using the dolphin browser instead of the app. You may want to have a stylus handy though, the buttons can be quite small, but the vids do play in HD if you have you web profile) preferences set that way.

I've been doing that for nearly a year now and its worked fine until the past few weeks. The Flash player will load and the controls appear but the video doesn't, the progress just stays as --:-- with no loading icon or anything, the controls are unresponsive too.

Ok, odd... I updated jetpack and I can play some past shows but not some of the new ones... Don't know what to say, perhaps they changed encoding methods or something.

Edit; Sometimes refreshing lets me play them, too. I wonder if you're getting hung up after a commercial (which I wouldn't see...) My first thought was some kind of ad blocker, perhaps?

Is been about a year since this question got asked.

I am thinking about jumping from IOS to Android, and this is one thing keeping me from doing it. I will not watch SD streams on my phone.

To be honest I cancelled my membership because after 2+ years of promises, nothing has happened and nobody is giving any answers. Thoroughly disappointed in this lack of customer care.

Need the android app to play hd stream or at least 720. My eyes are hurting after watching this in SD. Needs improvement. I purchased premium to watch anime in HD or 720. I'll give it sometime but please update the app.

It's a minor complaint really, for best results on an Android device with 1080p or better display your better off downloading a browser that supports flash and just using the website.

You can stream 1080p quite easily and it looks gorgeous, or at least I can on my Nexus 7 2013 and Galaxy S4. You need to stop your device going to sleep though.

It's just a shame you can't do it with the Android app.





does it support html5?

Probably not, since it would need to support whatever streams are available from CR.

The Plex plug-in for example, uses the same HLS streams that are used for many devices.
