CR has sync issues. After watching an episode to the end, quite often if I look at my queue on the website, the progress bar indicates I have not fully watched that episode. I suspect I know why it happens (it syncs after the buffer empties and re-buffers, but if there is no more to re-buffer, it doesn't sync), but it can get annoying when I look at a series, and see something like this:



In this screenshot above, I've fully watched all those episodes, but you wouldn't know that by the looks of it. Not that anyone but me would look at this, but my inner OCD wants a proper representation of my progress.

I use CR mostly on an Android platform, so I don't know how the rest function, but if I press-n-hold on an episode or a show, I get a menu that says stuff like "play", "information", "videos", etc. Their functions are pretty obvious. I'd like to see "mark as watched", so it can set my watched progress on an episode to indicate that I've fully watched it.

beardfist's CR Queue.0 has a feature that accomplishes this, but it may only work in the non-mobile Chrome. In most cases, even if the progress bar isn't completely filled, the Queue will still recognize that the episode was watched enough to queue up the next one for you.
