Also, I had something really odd happen that I can't seem to reproduce now. I tried to be really quick on the rewind to replay an episode, and something I did sent it back to the start almost immediately without holding rewind. I'm going to have to mash buttons awhile until I can find what does that consistently...
After playing with this a bit, it appears that if you are really quick and press rewind on a watched episode while the gray "Loading" screen with the large circular CR logo is being displayed, it goes right back to the start instead of resuming near the end.

When the screen goes black, it looks the same, like it is loading some percentage, but I can consistently get it to start where it should with good timing. I don't know what happens for ad-supported users, though.

So, you still have to press a button at the right time, but you don't have to hold the button down to watch the orange progress bar go backwards, with a little practice.

So I'm a Premium member (for now), and when I come here to complain that the new Roku app IS COMPLETELY FUCKED UP, the rocket scientists/forum mods respond by deleting my posts!

Think I'll get on Twitter and spread the word about what a dicked-up bunch of crooks the Crunchyroll crew consists of.

Ta!

To be fair, you are using rather explicit language, and CR is a site open to people as young as 13 years old.

I want to note my experience with that quick press FF skip thing.

Sometimes it does skip, others though it restarts the scene you are in, think like BR and there are... chapters or whatever in the movie, like... a particular fight scene is in the 14/22 chapter or whatever, if you are partially through 12, and use the "skip" it goes to 13, but if you immediately try to skip again, it seems to just restart 13 over and over.

Pressing it twice (and letting go) in fairly quick succession seems to get past that hurdle for me, at least.

Yeah that seems to work (though at this point I am learning whereabouts to let go of the FF button to skip intros).

Also, too lazy to look back at the guide (forgive me) but I did learn something for myself.

When you Search for a show, and have the show up (I will use Magi for this example since it is where I learned it on) and you start on let's say episode 1. If somewhere during episode one (not sure if it needs to be paused or not wasn't paying attention) if you hit the right arrow on the D-Pad it will go to the next episode. This has worked all the way up to... I think I am at like episode 10 or something now.

Haven't tested if it needs to be paused or not, I don't think it did because I believe I did both with and without paused. Also haven't tested if hitting the left arrow goes to the previous episode.

Cute!

If you liked that, have you seen my Rotten Sushi project? Basically a different way to explore all the Anime on CR by using a greatly expanded set of tags. It includes an alpha index, publishers, production studios, movie and OVA lists, alternate names, "Adventurous" recommendations, simple polls instead of star ratings, and links to watch and try out the first episode of each show.

very very nice post thank you!

(I really can't help but mention, it's frustrating that such a post was needed)
