Simply put, I don't know how to get rid of this pixelation on the video playback. I've seen it a few times, but now I just want this resolved. I stream it in 1080P as well. It's more obvious on the dragon's torso. Here's a link for a better picture. http://gyazo.com/1bb09f6d829adb09565f96644a947325

Are you using Chrome on Windows?

I get pixelation on my Roku 3 since the app update too. Another reason amongst many I've taken to using my PS3 again which looks fine. I find it ironic the "HD" turned out to be an inferior viewing experience.

I'm on Windows 7 using Google Chrome yes. I have the integrated flash turned off though and am using Adobe Flash 15.

The distortion looks like what happens for me in Chrome (with the built-in chrome flash player). Have you tried with a different browser?

What series/episode/timestamp is that anyway?

I'm not a big fan of Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox.

That's Fairy Tail episode 20 or 21 of series 2 I believe. I can't remember the time stamp unfortunately. Should I try it w/ the integrated flash turned on...?

Found the scene (episode 21 around 12:41). I guess the lightning effect does not get along well with the dark gradients in that scene.
Judging from experience, this might be caused by the Flash player and might actually not look like this in source file the stream is based on. It will probably be hard to get that to stream without the blocking with the current Flash player versions.

So just to be clear, it's not on my end?

It's worth reporting to support at /contact. Though I'm fairly positive that it is not a source material or encoding issue on our end.
It's much more likely to be a general software issue affecting many users.

Else try playing it on a different device, such as a PS3, iPhone or Android device. The blocking is probably not present on such devices.
