My main issue is with animes such as Maoyu, Bodacious Space Pirates and other finished season animes. Loading on my main device for viewing crunchyroll my ps3 the video doesn't load or just crashes to the main ps3 home page completely. Tried the recommended fixes, nothing works. even set wifi and wired as primary or only device to see if ping rate was an issue. The few times I have been able to get these videos to load on ps3. the counters for time never increase with video lag. Currently writing this I've been on a near 5 min load loop for episode 6 of maoyu. have yet to try with xbox and pc to see if it is on server side the overall issue.

Not sure if this will help, but was one of the "recommended fixes" that u tried going thru, the ones suggested in the What's Going on With Playstation thread? I'll just quote a part of that thread here:


Another issue is the app crashing. This generally happens in one of two contexts. The first being when a show in your queue has cached a bad image file.

If this is happening to you, please do the following:

1. Launch the app.
2. Go to your Queue.
3. Remove the offending show from your Queue.
4. Exit the app.
5. Relaunch the app.
6. Navigate to the show through the 'Anime' or 'Drama' section.
7. Let me know if it still crashes when maneuvering through episodes.

The reason why this crash happens is that the app caches a bad image file. By removing the show from your queue and then exiting the app and re-entering will wipe the file and you will then be able to maneuver through episodes again.

Tried both. Hell one of the shows isn't even in my queue and still causes similar issues. Even noticing some of the same problems with pc but at least the videos will load some what before crashing on either Chrome, Firefox, IE and Opera.

NOTE: Chrome and Firefox no longer crash after dropping video quality into 480 or SD(it is depressing).

I get the same problem sometimes too.
I would like to try to fix the problem, but often times it will be almost half of my queue that is displaying the buggy images.
This workaround does work on the series that I've tried, but it seems like a lot of effort for a temporary fix that continues later.

I've been having the same problem for the past 6 days, only on my PC. I've tried everything they recommended to me and everything that was on the video troubleshooting page but nothings worked. I've been trying to watch episode 3 of Watamote and episode 8 of Kill la Kill everyday since then but it always gives me the same black box with the duration stuck at --:--/--:--. It's really annoying! I can watch Natsu no arashi and the trailer for Nichijou for some weird reason.

I tried watching Nyarko-San and it was terrible.Is the older anime a lower status even though it aired this year?

Try deleting and re-downloading the app. This worked for me when shows lagged/crashed on me.
