Hello! I'd like to suggest a change that would make it much easier for people with slower internet connections to use Crunchyroll-- when rolling over to the next episode in the series, please have it automatically set the video quality to what it used during the last episode.

I had been greatly enjoying watching Toriko episodes without the need to change the settings after each episode loads (which allows me to do a great variety of crafts while watching), but now that versions above 480P are available, I have to adjust it after every episode. It's a bit of a hassle, mainly because I don't usually notice until it hits about 4 minutes in, at which point my internet can't keep up with 1080P :[ Mild inconvenience, but very irritating when it happens consistently.

Also, I'm sure others would appreciate if the videos could be made to stay fullscreen after rolling over to the next episode. This is another minor(but constant) irritant.

Thanks!

The first time you change it, though, set it to 360 first, then set it to the resolution you really want after saving that. There's a long-standing site glitch where the first change doesn't always work.

Sort of, if you use chrome, there's an unofficial extension here /group/Beardfists_Programming_Corner that almost accomplishes that, but it leaves the progress bar at the bottom.

But the best way is to use a device, like Roku, PS3/4, Xbox 360/One, Apple TV, etc, and play everything on your big-screen TV instead of tying up your computer.
