I have Adobe 11.9 in Firefox 26.0 and have a loooot of issues since yesterday. I've tried to watch yesterday Nobunagun and Pupa, today Strange+ and Kill la Kill and was a hell because the freezing, stuttering and even sometimes the chapter ended all of a sudden . Even in SD is horrible

Really, I just hate to see anime in this way, my poor f5 key is suffering because my anger at this situation. Would be a shame to put like 20 anime series on hold or watch them in other "dark" sites just because this issue u_u.

having issues again.

magical warefare 4 @ 1080

stutters in both chrome flash 12 and ie flash 11.9.

since i wasnt getting the stuttering the other day on video 3 i'm guessing this is just a server issue due to traffic and is unrelated to flash version at all.

I can guarantee it is not the newest version of Adobe Flash Player that is causing these issues which have been ongoing for several months well before version 12 released and having paying customers do this worthless and pointless test just shows you're trying to blame something else instead of blaming your own servers.

This is beyond ridiculous and pathetic.

I'm watching anime on a gray area site that uses flash and I do not experience a single freeze or stutter.

Those "gray" sites are no doubt using some other company's bandwidth and aren't required to have DRM on their streams (since they don't have permission from the copyright holder to begin with).

I tried it and I didn't see a difference with the Flash versions.

The only things that make a difference for me are the time of day that I attempt to stream and maybe DNS. I was getting some minor freezing while using Norton DNS and moving back to OpenDNS alleviated it a lot. It's weird though because to my knowledge, isn't your DNS an irrelevant factor when you start to actually download something? *shrug*

Regardless, it seems (for me at least) that the biggest issue is definitely a combination of the day of the week and the time of the day. While I can stream at 1080 in the middle of the night, trying to do so around 8 PM or at any point on the weekend I'm often hard pressed to get through an episode without any freezes even on 720 or below.

That being said, the service is working better for me lately than it had for the last couple of months. I haven't seen the weird stuttering for a couple of weeks now, and my only issues lately have been those long freezes- and even those happen less frequently than they had previously.

Last few days have been pretty bad for me on various series when trying to stream on my PC laptop. I did just update to Flash 12 to see if that changed anything, but nope. Seeing this thread though makes me pull my hair a little less, knowing I'm not the only one.

I use the laptop for the big TV in the living room (HDMI cable) but have a Xbox in my room. It's a pain to unhook though and I rather use my laptop like I have been for many months when I want to watch something with others. The stuttering problem has been driving me nuts the last few days haha.

The stutters are not as bad for me in 12 as they were in 11.9. However i still often get stutters. Laggy playback and videos that just suddenly stop playing. The odd thing is other services (Youtube, Netflix) can play 1080p video perfectly fine without lag or stutters.

Edit: Just to add, i often play shows on the tablet (Samsung Galaxy Tab 2), and those are affected often by horrible artifacts and desyncronisation of the sound and video. But the video doesn't stop or lag like it does on my PC.

Changing DNS does not seem to do anything. So far i have tried OpenDNS and GoogleDNS, and the one my ISP provides. But it's the same overall experience i get on all of them.

I'm still using 11.9 with Firefox 26.0 and I've been having terrible stuttering for the last 72 hours. More so than the usual problems that have plagued CR for a year.

For most of the videos I'm having to either use 480p or in the case of Wizard Barristers I had to use SD to get a smooth stream.

Tried both version of the flash still having the issue. However, my problem started to occur when one of the hops my packets take increased alot! and started to dump packets out of the bucket. started 2/3 months ago been keeping an eye on it. Over the past few months so I know if I should bother to stream or not. Always when those cogentco hops start to dump packets/or jump in ms is when i'm having my streaming issues.

I tried rolling back it did not help at all, videos are unwatchable 1080P, they run for a few second up to a min and then pause, either then stop or will resume after a few seconds for a few seconds then stop again. The main website has been slow to switch between pages.
So far I have tried.
Rolling back, DNS jumper, clearing cache, reducing local storage on adobe flash setting to none to clear flash video cache and then restoring the amount to normal 100kb. I tried both Firefox and Chrome.
Tested Ping and speed test here are results.

I noticed the site and videos started acting up for me since around Friday Jan 31rst 2014.
I have been using the PS3 version too and the videos for the most part play fine on it besides the ps3 crashing app bugs. Makes it difficult to compare thou since the ps3 is limited to 720P when you compare it to 1080P on the pc so data use would be larger on pc, and it's difficult to notice actual output on the ps3 since it can change quality based on bandwich and some shows are simply uglier than others, watching distance and screen size make a difference too.
I hope some of this data can be useful.
I also rebooted after rolling back adobe flash, and re-tested everything after the reboot.

I'm using version 12.0.0.44 and stuttering is pretty bad. However, I experienced these issues in version 11 as well. Videos seem to stall or freeze completely.

On Maxthon 4.2.1.1000 which uses Flash ver.11.7.700.252 bandwidth utilization for 1080p streams is better however it is not enough for 100% smooth playback, I often need to switch to 720p (like most browsers) in order to not having it stutter and stop for a few minutes to buffer. The other browsers I've tested are the latest versions of Opera, Firefox, Chrome and IE11 with Flash ver.12.0.0.44.

There are occasions where I am unable to load the videos at all despite all my bandwidth and sometimes going through the steps of flushing DNS and Flash caches can resolve those issues but lately the intervals of needing to do this are becoming more frequent.
