Hey guys, just wanted to let you know that AutoPlay is not working on the AppleTV. I noticed this with several newer shows, like World Trigger and Mushi-shi. It plays the episode to the end, but doesn't jump to the next episode. Went into settings, and I have Auto-Play turned on.

AutoPlay has been working fine since the day it came out for the AppleTV, but I been noticing this yesterday and today. Is this something wrong on CrunchyRoll's end?

World Trigger:

Episode 6 - When show ends, doesn't auto-play next episode, it just goes back to the play menu for the episode.
Episode 7 - Auto-play keeps replaying episode 7 and doesn't jump to episode 8.

It has not been been working for awhile now. I've tried everything including restoring my AppleTV several times. I hope they fix it. At this point I've disabled it; gets annoying when it randomly jumps to a different series or repeats the same episode.

I have issues with Apple TV AutoPlay, too. It works sometimes, not others. Occasionally jumps to a different series. I notice it a lot watching Naruto Shippunden in the 300's.

I am having streaming issues with the App on PS3, PS4, and the apple tv, the apple tv is the best of them all but it is lagging and dropping alot i have checked my router and internet speeds and settings pulling 62-66 Mb download and uplod is about 5-10. however this seems to be on all or specific anime any ideas CR? I am contacting Apple right now. the Apple TV is up to date so that shouldn't be a issue. But since this issue affects multiple devices i wanted to contact ya'll

and the autoplay is very glitchy with naruto and almost every anime, seems like it "forgets" where you were at as well. which is minor but annoying.

1. Open CR on Apple TV and go to "My Queue"
2. Watch episode 12 of Shirobako by pressing the Play button
3. Immediately watch episode 32 of Ace of Diamond by pressing the Play button
4. This shows up at the end of the episode:

Haven't noticed any replies to this topic. I'm experiencing the same issue described by erictbar. Is there a resolution in the works?

I also experience this issue.
It worked fine when the anime was placed in my queue, but now I am having queue issues. They really need to fix the app.

Same here. My apple just repeats the same episode and then goes to the next one or a different show I watched before. Crunchyroll WTF this was brought up like a year ago why hasn't it been fixed?

Update: On previous occasions i've tried to deactivate and then reactivate autoplay, but it did 't work. For some reason I decided to try the same again just now, and it fixed the issue. I don't know if it was just luck or if they've fixed it, but my advice is to try doing that, even if you've already tried it before!

Why Crunchyroll thinks it is so hard to play episode x+1 when episode x ends.
Honestly, give me the source code that I correct the bug.

Yeah, I'm still running into this too. It's been over a year since this started happening :/. Mentioned it to apple though, maybe their engineers can help fix it? I agree with eduardohmdacruz though, you think it would be easy to move on to episode x+1 after the current episode finishes? Almost like there is an "episodenumber++" missing in the source code or something?

I have no experience developing for Apple TV but from what I have read it would appear that the channel(app) producers have very little control over the features. It seems that shows are just delivered to Apple TV as an XML feed. This is why all the Apple TV channel are basically identical (although Apple apparently gives variety of templates to choose from). Just speculating that the problem is Crunchyroll sometimes delivers the list of episodes in the reverse order than the Apple TV expects. If you look at some of the other channels the episodes are delivered oldest at the top, newest at the bottom. If this is the case and the order is reversed then it makes sense why autoplay basically replays the same episode. This is just a guess. It would be cool to see some Apple TV app code.
