Would it be possible to add a progress bar that shows what part of the video has loaded, it would help for people who preload videos(basically starting a video, pausing it to let it load, then playing it later to play a higher quality than they can stream without it), it's something i would appreciate and I know others would too. It shouldn't even be too hard of a thing to add.

Since CR's video player doesn't pre-load content, you wouldn't find this feature to be of much help.

It may load ~30 seconds, unless that was changed recently.

it loaded quite aways i think, all im asking is for a progress bar that would let us tell where its at, i have another faster connection but its capped so i try to use it as little as possible, and if not they could change the software to allow it to load all the way

But they can't. There is DRM for quite some time now so that the player buffers very little. Not their choice, they have to follow the licencing requirements.

why would that break licensing agreements? that makes no sense?

The companies supplying materials to CR put that requirement in there as part of the license agreement. They are deluded to think that will do anything to prevent piracy, but nonetheless, if CR wants to play the game and be allowed to stream legally, they have to follow those rules.

oh, oh well, thanks for explaining that, honestly if they want to prevent piracy they should just promote crunchyroll and there own products more.
