To be more precise:

No matter the quality, and no matter the time of day. I want to pause the video, but yet it will only buffer the next couple minutes then stop. It will never buffer the full video, this is kind of annoying. I love CrunchyRoll and need my fix, but I work way up north in Canada, where there is Internet, but, it's not even fast enough to stream 480P, so, is there anyone else out there with this problem.

Sometimes, I see that it buffers for about 5 minutes, but when my video finally reaches the 5 minute mark while watching it, it refuses to even buffer after it's been sitting loading for a while.

The player has a limited buffer, and the issue with video connection cutting out after an extended pause is a known one.

That is just retarded. It would probably solve 99% of crunchyroll's retarded streaming issues if they actually buffered most of the video.

The limited buffer was implemented as part of the licensor-mandated DRM features.

Yeah, I'm kinda aware.

As usual, DRM benefits no one.
