I think it's due to their cheap content development network (CDN). I've been bitching to them (at least when you could directly contact support) and always would get "Send us a trace route!" Not that anything was ever done.

Same problem with the Roku player, too, so it's not the client.

These guys are just cheap.

Just cause you go to a Mercedes dealer doesn't mean they won't sell you a Chevy off the back lot. In my completely unprofessional opinion it has more to do with improper load balancing/CoS/QoS than the actual hosting. It seems priority is given to mobile and apps while the web player takes a backseat and newer, popular shows get bottlenecked while catalogue titles sit on resources that should be reallocated as needed.

Web streams and app streams are not on the same CDNs. They use different streaming technology, as well as different encodes. If something is watched less it will only use the according resources, so catalog does not get into the way of simulcasts either (both are legitimate streams in first place).

I was trying to give some credit by guessing the apps take priority but if their on a completely different CDN then I can't really think of an excuse for the web player. I can't buy the second part in bold, when trying to watch simulcasts that are less than a month old anywhere near peak hours and it's a stuttering mess while a random catalog title plays as smooth as butter..... if there's not some kind of load or resource allocation issue happening then.....I don't know.....anyway, whatever, I just drop in a few times a year to see if there's anything new on the issue. time to go away now.

I'd also like to see the outright removal of that one ad that crashes everyone.

I've tried 3 different computers, 3 different browsers, and that one ad always crashes Flash without being displayed.

I wish there was some way to test view specific ads just so we could pinpoint exactly which one is causing the issue.

I can pretty much only use CR from 6am untill (if lucky) 5pm(gmt+1), i'm guessing that activity on the site is a bigger issue that the player itself(but they might be related).
But unfortunately so many streaming places are non-responsive to the pleebs request(even if crunchyroll at least pretends to do so).

If it is a an issue of server availability i'd gladly give slightly more to be able to watch when i want. and not while the (most likely) americans and others outside my timezone sleep.

I have to say that for myself personally I have had no real issues with the playback of videos. I am from New Zealand, and so I was actually expecting to have some buffering issues. But that does not seem to be the case. Occasionally I will get a small stutter, at this point all I need to do is pause the video for a maximum of 3-4 seconds and bam no longer any stuttering issues.

Also, I just should note that I do not seem to have any issues what so ever in skipping the video ahead. It picks up pretty quickly.

I am watching in 1080p.

New Zealand?
Then use Animelab instead. I used a VPN and tried it. It's Awesome!!
It'a got like most animu and is only for AU and NZ!!

yeahh CR is complete garbage,the ps4 app used to be stable now that pauses as much as the site. Now that HD anime is streaming for free just about everywhere and uh...UNCENSORED. crappyrolll is rendered obsolete. ill keep funimation for putting up a good service.
