Here's the situation:

I have a WDTV Live Plus with Flingo. I go into Flingo, select Crunchyroll, select an anime series, select an episode, and press play. The streaming starts, goes through the Advertisement, then returns with "Video Error Playback". Every episode in Crunchyroll on Flingo does this.

So I did some preliminary troubleshooting on my WDTV Live Plus device, checking driver updates, turning the device off and on, restarting the unit, router, and modem; the problem persists.

Any idea what's going on?

Thanks in advance!

This has been on going for a couple of weeks from my perspective, So far on the Flingo forum fingers are being pointed at CR and I think in another thread CR are blaming Flingo as they control the app.

It's not just on WDTV it was also broken on Vizio TV it, the channel even disappeared for a while.

CR and Flingo has worked perfectly for me for a year or more, it would often miss out episodes, but this has been the longest I've known a complete outage.

Same here. Playback Error on each and every CR video since mid-February.
Other channels on Flingo seem to work. Not all, though: TED Talks has vanished, for example. So I guess this is a combined Flingo/CR issue.
And yes, even on the WD the channel has disappeared for a couple days.
Please do something about this, I have ELEVEN PAGES of Crunchyroll favourites I can't reach anymore T_T

I tried flinging from CR to the Flingo queue in the WD. No luck.
Is there a support person out there?

And just like that, everything is working again. Whoever did what they did, be it CR, Flingo or WD, thank you. \o/
