So for the past two weeks (maybe more) I have been having issues watching videos on Crunchyroll. The videos take hours to load completely then lag horribly when I try to continue to watch it without buffering. Waiting ten minutes only gives me a good 15 seconds or less of video to watch. It's ridiculous.

I'm not having this problem on any other sites, and I have heard from friends that use Crunchyroll that they are having similar problems. This occurs no matter what quality I run the video on. From SD to 1080p it all ends up the same.

At first I thought it might be that the videos I was trying to watch were just released so they had a lot of traffic. When I went to watch older videos or series that weren't featured as much it was exactly the same though.

It's starting to upset me that I'm paying for a premium membership and I can't even watch the videos that come out because of these issues. Please, is there anything that can be done to fix this?

Some people have reported improvements after switching their DNS settings from their ISP's defaults to Google's Public DNS or OpenDNS.

I am having problems as well. This makes me mad because I can't watch my shows regularly. I'm thinking there is something else wrong because it says the website is down, sometimes my history or que does not show up or it says waiting to load on device. Again, this just started to happen never had problems before..

I think mine was set to obtain one automatically? I don't know much about DNS, so I'm not sure. I switched to the google one and it seems to be doing okay now.
