Im tired of this, theyre so lucky theyre one of the only apps on xbox with decent selection of subbed anime, otherwise I promise I would not pay for this garbage...
Videos skips randomly.
Quality is rarely stable. ( i have 10-14 ping, 100downoad, 25-30upload ) so its not me.
Hunter x Hunter airs usually at 2:30, why does it randomly air at 4:00 today? And on top of all, the video wont load on Xbox yet, cant watch on my phone because the quality is leas then standard...
Problems with this app for a whole year already, do they plan on just never doing nothing? So garbage, just shut it down... Idiots. Btw im still waiting for the video to work 4:35. Not like I have to work at 6pm and time is not important ofc. Fix your garbage app you chumps.

This has been addressed and a fix is in the works by the end of Q1 (at least for the PC side). I myself have random episodes stutter/freeze/skip pretty frequently, so you're not the only one. CR has a lot of problems that many users are experiencing and many who aren't. Hopefully CR gets these issues addressed on all platforms soon. My patience is running very thin.

Yeah, I am tired of this happening too. Over at netflix and various of other sites which should be considered "competition" for crunchyroll on streaming anime. There video players are much more reliable and since Cr is focused on Streaming stuff, their video player should be #1 on there list of "must keep it working as best as possible" list

I wouldn't call Netflix a direct competitor with CR, since CR's focus is on simulcast titles, while Netflix will only start hosting stuff once DVD/BDs start becoming available (generally).

If CR drops the Xbox app, which works perfectly fine for me other than a few of those random skips, I might have to put my membership on hold, because I've just become too used to watching on my TV, and don't want to futz with setting up an HTPC or some other such alternative.

I have the same problem but it doesn't kill the anime. I paid for CR with the intent of watching it on my PC. Xbox app is a bonus for me.

No clue, but I do know that some of these issues have been going on since 2010

This.


This is the main reason I dropped the 360 app and started watching on my Samsung Blu Ray player quite sometime ago. I have not ran into a single time skip and the quality is always perfect. The only downside is I really miss the 360 app UI it's infinitely better than the Samsung app but I'll deal with a lower quality UI in order to have stable streams.

The 360 streams have been much better lately. I've seen a lot fewer 10 second skips in the past couple weeks, especially with newly uploaded episodes.

I've havn't had any issues w/the xbox 360 app , except having to pay for gold just to get to my paid subscriptions (xbox won't show CR free subsc) . Now the Samsung blu ray player is a different story... Samsung uses their own servers for the smart tvs & blu ray players & they go down ALOT ! Not counting the freeze - ups & crashes too .

I heard about the Blu Ray player, unfortunately for me is either Xbox, or hooking my computer up to my TV, I like to watch it on my 50inch TV instead of my laptop screen if you know what I mean.

Anyhow, I'm here again...
I can deal with the Quality changing constantly, subs going from big to small, I can deal with the random skips, because I rewind and I only miss maybe 1 second.
However this problem is much greater, I come here at 3:00 sharp to wait for my show Hunter x Hunter last week it came out at 4EST today at 3EST, idk why it does this but thats not the problem, the problem is I try to load the video, 30mins after it aired, and it takes me to the black screen with the loading circle...
Last week it did this and then it gave me a quality that was less than standard and I could not even hear the audio thats how bad it was I ended up watching it on some random website on my smartphone.
So it looks like this week is the same problem, Im not sure if it does this with every show so soon after they air maybe within a hour or 2 it'll be fixed but I only watch HxH when it comes out, and Ive already ran into this problem twice.
Its very annoying, I like Crunchyroll they have some real decent animes, but the all the problems they have is ridiculous.
Step it up.
Thnx
