I have been streaming crunchyroll for months on my panasonic btt190 blu-ray player with no issues (other than the half-broken FF and Rewind), but over the last several days I have had a lot of problems with excessive buffering and the stream stalling completely. I know it is not a network/DNS problem as all my other streaming apps work fine.

Also, fast forward and Rewind have never worked properly; I can hit FF multiple times and it buffers for a few seconds and then starts the steam right where I already was. The most i can get it to fast forward at a time is about 15 seconds ahead. Rewind works a little better but is very inconsistent in how much it will rewind...

I am convinced that there is something amiss with either the app, the encoding of episodes for the app, or the server, something specific to the Panasonic app... are the episodes served from a different server for the Panasonic than for other apps?

I am completely unable to watch Glasslip episode 4 on the Panasonic (hangs with buffering symbol), and I have tried a half dozen times to watch Coffin Princess episode 4, each time somewhere around the 9:00 mark it just stops with a black screen and will sit there like that forever until I hit the exit button. I can watch both of these trouble-free on the website and on my PS3. I have changed nameservers, rebooted router, all that sort of thing... Please look into this...

This problem is not exclusive to any one platform, Most apps and even PC are having this issue.

I put in a support ticket and they got right on it. After going through the usual basic troubleshooting they came back and said they were working on the servers, and aftera day or two things seem much better now. Fast forward and rewind are still broken but they always have been on the Viera so I won't hold that against them...
