Sorry about my bad English
I watch anime in 1080P or 720P, but both of them are so slow to load.
The streaming start instantly, almost in no time. but after about 5 seconds, the lag starts.
It can't be any problem with internet speed, I can watch YouTube video in 1080P with no problem.
My system specs:
CPU: Core i7 3610QM Quad Core 2.7Ghz
Memory: 8GB
GPU: GT650M 2GB DDR5
128GB SSD + 500GB HDD

My internet speed:
Download: 5.05Mbps (about 500~600kb/s)
Upload: 0.6Mbps (about 60kb/s)
Ping: 13ms
Packetloss: 1% (3 in 250)
Jitter: 5ms

Anyone know how to solve this?

I have a very similar issue. Your internet does not seem the best. That is the only thing holding you down. You could close things in the background, such as Steam, other tabs, and anything that uses the internet. I have noticed closing Steam (which i assume you have, given your computer specs) will allow me to go from SD to 1080p. Slow streams suck, here is something to perhaps improve ur mood:

5 mbps can stream 1080p , it may buffer a little . I use to have 6 down & I streamed NF in 1080p , it had to catch up some to get there though . But 720p is a go for sure at your speed . However , since you're on a laptop there can be a lot of manufactured install crapware running in the background . Try this program , it's called "pc decrapifier". You can find it at majorgeeks.com , it's a safe site . Install & run it and see what comes up . I actually had a laptop I was working on try to block the download ! Got it installed & threw out the crappy demo copy of Norton AV on it (was causing the issue) . Also , if you can try an Ethernet cable to stream instead of wireless to see if it streams better . I find on my home network the CR streaming does not like 40ghz on the N band . Had to slow my network to 20ghz for it to stream . All the other sites will stream fine , just CR has the weird issues .
