I can tell you what worked for my Retina Macbook Pro.

I hit the fullscreen button as usual and it basically only fills a quarter of the window because I guess thats what 1080 is on a retina monitor.

To fix this I right click on the monitor and hit Disable Fullscreen. For some reason this puts the fullscreen back to normal and fills the entire screen without closing the actual fullscreen.

The only reason I can think of why this works is that there are two different options for fullscreen with the incorrect one taking priority (maybe the player or a mac OS thing). When you disable that incorrect one it goes to the second better option.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

I have this problem with Safari on my 2012 MBPr running Mavericks (OS X 10.9). However, I can run fullscreen videos fine when I use Firefox without the need for toggling any settings so that is worth a try. It's a hassle to change browsers, but it's a temporary fix with no other adverse side effects.

I have the same issue on Windows 8.1 with internet explorer 11 - resolution 1920 x 1080.

The trick from rushinator about right clicking and pressing disable fullscreen worked for me and returned the screen to normal fullscreen.

Hi to add on to my previous post, I found a way that seems to restore the outline to the subtitles as well. Before when you did my trick it would remove the outline and the subtitles would be only white (still readable but not the best).

What I did was go into the settings panel that's available when you click your little person icon at the top of the page. Once in the settings panel go to "Video Preferences." Once there you want to go to the last option which is "Default Full Screen Hardware Acceleration" and enable it.

After doing this whenever I do my trick to make the video full screen the subtitles do not lose the outline and are much more legible.

Hopefully this works for others as well.

Hmm, I already have Hardware Acceleration enabled. However I do agree that your fix does make work, and I don't find the subtitiles tooo hard to read.

Just irritating really and am hoping a fix comes out soon!

I'm running a retina macbook and have the issue as well. However, a reasonable fix is using the parallel window button (unsure what its actually called) to open a window exclusive to the stream, than fullscreen it with the... maximize button (again unsure what its called) in the top right of your screen (mac OS). This will give you most of the screen and has been a reasonable fix for me in the meantime.

P.S. New to mac, sorry I'm unsure of the actual button names, I hope I explained myself well... just let me know if not.

I believe I have found a full fix for users with a macbook pro with retina display using the chrome web browser.

When starting the video, click the button between auto and maximize. This should open a new tab with just the video. Now go up to the menu bar. Click View then click enter presentation mode. This should put the video into full screen without sacrificing any subtitle quality.



To exit presentation mode. Hover your mouse to the top then click view. Then click enter full screen. I hope this helps.

I just found out the perfect fix for anyone who is having this problem and is using a macbook. all you have to do is type chrome://plugins/ into the url. that will take you to your plug ins on google chrome then go the top right of the page and click plus sign in front of the words details then scroll down until you find the adobe flash players, there should be two of them, what you want to do is disable the one that's location is google chrome. after that exit out of that page and reload your crunchyroll page and that it's.

here is a pictures that might be useful:

Carlos that's not a fix. Look closer. All that did was pixelate the video by reverting back to the old bad flash.

Hopefully they will make a proper fix soon :3

But I've just been using the "open stream in a new tab" for now.

Would like legit fullscreen to work though.

I am also having this problem on my brand new macbook pro 15" retina. The "Disable Fullscreen Mode" and new tab workarounds work for me.

Hopefully this can be fixed, it's already been months.
