What device are you using, you didn't specify?

Apple TV and Ouya both have 1080p.

The Chromecast announcement mentioned HD, but I can't tell you if that is 720p or higher, it wasn't explicitly specified there...

The basic android app is only standard definition, but you can use the Dolphin browser + Dolphin Jetpack + Flash Player from Dolphin Labs to watch in any definition that you can set for a PC. (not using the app itself).

I believe Xbox 360 is up to 720p.
Not sure about Playstation or IOS, but I think those may be at least 720 as well.

If you're using a browser, you can set your default resolution here: /acct/?action=video

If you are watching older catalog series, they may only be up to 480, because that is all that was available when they were released.

I think the CR servers aren't pumping out Full 1080p anyway or at least under 10bits, I have my Slice outputting it to my 4k TV and there is still some pixelation in scenes like the trion body switch during the a transformation sequence in World Trigger. The fractal effect look almost perfect but there is major pixelation on the character's outlines. I think this is because the video stream must be below 8bits. This also happens in scenes such as fast fight scenes in shows such as Durarara and Parasite. Is there anyway you guys can up the bitrate coming from the crunchyroll servers?

There are a couple things you can try with your router setting for DNS, but usually that means your ISP isn't playing games well with the CDN server, part of all the net neutrality flap. Browsers (using flash) are notoriously bad for bandwidth abuse, though.

There is a help topic to go through here: /help?topic=video but if you tried all that, then you can contact support here: /help?topic=contact Sometimes changing settings seems to help but not always.

There are already several other threads on this topic, too, this is just one example: /forumtopic-824679/lag-freezing-stuttering-etc
