I have a full membership, up to date and paid.

Firefox loads fine. I can view any video without issue.

Chrome however, with pepperflash disabled, it only loads the first 2:00 minutes of new videos and places ads into older ones.

I am logged in however.

I run tri screens, so I use one to view videos on while working on others, so I often run full screen and leave it be. Thus, I disabled pepperflash.

With pepperflash enabled however, the videos load fine. Full load, no ads, no limit.

Any ideas? I've tried purging cache, restarting browser, rebooting.. Baffled.

At this moment, I'm stuck picking the lesser of two evils. No videos and ads, or no full screen stickage.

Or Firefox.

At least I didn't say IE.

Why are you disabling pepper flash in the first place, you can have a video in fullscreen on one screen while working on another just fine, with it enabled. What version of chrome/flash do you guys have installed.

Are you able to reproduce this in Incognito Mode?

Incognito mode didn't work. Switching flash plugins from Adobe flash to Pepper flash fixed it. On Mac Chrome I used to have to disable pepper flash because it would make the Crunchyroll videos CRAZY laggy for whatever when full screened, along with other weird quirks. Hopefully they're all fixed. ^^

Exactly the same as OP, however I have pepper flash off for a different reason. Poor performance. The difference is night and day between Adobe Flash and Pepper Flash.

For me:
Pepper flash: 480p choppy and audio out of sync.
Adobe Flash: works fine up to 1080p but still better than 480p in pepper.

Pepper flash: drops out of full screen when alt-tabbing or switching focus to any other window.
Adobe Flash: does this only when paused, if playing it stays fulls screen.

I first notice the problem around when the OP posted, I had been watching a video just fine earlier in the day. Then later I decided to give a new series a look and started to play it, after the shortly after the opening title it stopped I look at the time 2:00/2:00. I imediatly think my session expired and need to log in again, was still signed in however.

I enabled pepper flash and its performance is horrible. I can't use my computer at all if I want to watch anything.

Whoops. Been busy so could not reply.

I'll also note that lmercury is right about performance as well. I could never stream 1080, or anything over 480 actually, without it being choppy and what I thought was lagged out. I've got 35Mbs downstream though. With pepper disabled, I can watch 1080 all day long with no issue. Never knew it wasn't me until I killed pepper.

So.. Disabled pepper to keep full screen on and improve performance.

I'm running Windows 7, Chrome Version 32.0.1664.3 dev-m Aura, 8G ram and GeForce GTX 650 Ti.

Not top of the line, but not a Windows 98 box, either.

Ended up switching to FireFox which works great under standard Flash.

Otoris's screenshot would mirror mine, so no need for me to post one.

Well, problem solved. You guys must all be using the bugged dev version, switch to the stable channel and everything should work just fine.

Can't confirm their version, so.. But I'll certainly try dropping back to the main release branch. I always keep one foot ahead though since it's my livelihood.

Will see about it this evening.

This begs the question, since you insinuate that the dev version runs a faulty pepperflash.

Can you post your working pepperflash version?

I checked and was able to reproduce most of your bugs in canary, so I know for sure that it is the problem. Chrome stable uses 11.8.800.170

Well, it took uninstalling Chrome and the last Flash update, then reinstalling the public branch to fix this.
