Is there some kind of problem with streaming on the Xbox 360 Live? I have had nothing but problems this past week. This is before the dreaded 4pm dark time. (read below)

Also, I get nothing after 4pm PST, anytime and haven't since I started paying for content.

I've been having less problems than usual (fewer emails sent to Bjaker asking for new encodes), but I'm sure that'll change as soon as I post this.

What r encodes? I really need help with this. I'm getting continuous error msgs, until I actually get to the show, (retry, retry, retry, retry) then it runs ok.. but getting through the menu, and even the log in, has become a frustrating chore.

I gave up a long time ago on trying to run crunchyroll through my PS3, utter futility. so I only have the Xbox now to watch it on the big screen. Don't like watch TV on a computer or tablet.

Encodes = The result of taking the original video delivered by the publisher and encoding or transcoding it into the format required for streaming.

Thanks for that. But, wouldn't streaming crunchroll on Xbox Live automatically do that? I mean I haven't had any problems (except I can't usually stream after 4 pm which I assume is because crunchyroll doesn't have enough servers to handle the traffic at that time) before, but this week has been a nightmare, and it's still sucking.

My streaming on Xbox has been horrible too. For some reason, the video will skip like 30 seconds ahead and if I try to rewind to watch the missed time, it will skip itself at the same spot. It also changes the letter font continuously throughout the video and it makes the sound choppy.

The change in font size indicates a change in video quality (larger size is lower quality). The skipping can only be fixed by re-encoding the video, which Bjaker can do if informed about the problem through the /contact form.

My conspiracy theory. Since the gutting of the Net Neutrality Act, the streaming has been bad and I wonder if my ISP Verizon, is not up to some evil. I've heard from different areas of the web that Netflix is also suffering, along with some other high volume sites. Is this a sign of things to come? Comcast just sucked up Time Warner cable..............can't be good for anyone.

They announced their intent to acquire it. They still require both FCC and FTC approval. Remember when AT&T announced their intent to acquire T-Mobile?

Even if this does get approved (unlike the T-Mobile acquisition), expect it to come with some conditions, like Comcast's acquisition of NBC Universal.

The merger doesn't affect me directly, but it could be a boon for the customers.
