I've been having trouble with streaming that usually starts to get bad around this time. (9pm pacific) The video freezes mid play or doesn't buffer fast enough. I've tried downgrading the quality from 1080 to 720 and it still doesn't help. My internet connection is extremely fast and ISP throttling tests come back negative so I can only assume there's something wrong with crunchyroll. I don't experience this sort of prime time service interruption on any other players(Netflix, Hulu, etc)

Anyone else notice this?

Hello!

There have been some issues lately with playback it seems for people with videos. The issues are being looked at. Meanwhile, I will move this thread to the appropriate forum: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumcategory-391028/pc-mac-linux

Also, you may want to refer to this thread as it seems similar enough: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-810359/increasingly-poor-streaming-quality

thx! I really hope this issue gets resolved soon. Paying for a service I can't use really burns.

I've been having streaming problems for weeks. I just set up OpenDNS tonight and I'm suddenly able to stream 1080P without any issues.
