One thing when i watch shows it an annoyance that the player does not remember settings. I would love to have the player remember the settings for video quality when it switches episodes automatically.
Resolved

Also another suggestion is make the player stay in fullscreen when it switches to a new episode. It kinda negates the function of the autoplay, if i have to manually set the video quality and press fullscreen each time it switches to a new episode.

Hmm... well, you can set your default video quality in your Setttings > Account Settings > Video Preferences in your user profile. That will keep the video quality at a desired level for every show (and episode) you watch. I doesn't take right away so you have to set it a few times. For example:

Let's say you want 720p to be the default video resolution for your viewing. Click the Default Video Quality drop down menu and set it for 480p. Let it save automatically. Then click on the drop down menu again and set it to your desired setting of 720p and let it save. That will force all shows that have 720p as an option to stream each episode at 720p by defualt

That's one way to standardize video quality across multiple shows/episodes. Hope that helps.

Cheers.

Regarding video quality, do you mean the last video quality selected, or setting a default video quality. If the latter, you can do that here:
https://www.crunchyroll.com/acct/?action=video

If the default you select doesn't "stick", try changing it to something else, and then back again (e.g.., if it is set at the default of 1080p, but you want only 480p, but it doesn't take, try setting it to 720p and then back to 480p).


Due to the way Flash works, staying in full screen would require loading the next anime into the same video frame (similar to how the ads work for free members). For security reasons, Flash doesn't permit a player to auto-promote itself to full screen.

Perhaps when CR implements the next major upgrade to the website player they can incorporate this function (similar to the way YouTube works).

Thanks for all the quick answers and explanations. This was just what i was looking for! To bad about the fullscreen mode though. It would have been awesome to have it work like Netflix or similar streaming services does, though i know Netflix uses Silverlight for those purposes. Anyways Thanks again!

Sincerely Synit
