This is starting to get kind of annoying.

I see a lot of posts in this forum with similar issues, but no official response from CR.

Videos have become unwatchable. I've been watching on other streaming sites and do not have this issue. Netflix/Amazon/Hulu/Funimation All of those play the videos smoothly.

On CR, I can't watch any episode w/o breaks in play or constant stuttering/buffering. This is on Chrome, and Firefox.

I've cleared cache/power cycled equipment, and nothing works.

Can someone please respond to any of the threads, or help tickets?

This is something that depends on site traffic. The busier the site is, the more likely the video stutters. It has happened to me before, and it tends to happen during peak times.

screw peak times, it's buffering and stuttering at ANY time of day for me now. The streaming has been awful for the past few days :/

Support is no help either/////

This happened last year and it lasted for months. I'm not happy to see this issue back and even worse IMO. I can watch about 20 seconds, then I have to pause for like 5 minutes, then I can watch another 20 seconds.

Please God do something to fix this or I'll go back to something watchable.

I really hate how most sites nowadays don't let you preload whole videos. That at least is some what of a work around to make stuff watchable if steaming is having issues.

I made the mistake of supporting CR for another 3 months because I hoped they had solved their buffering issues. Sigh.

It's only been a problem for 3 years now. I am certain that CR has no plans whatsoever to expand their CDN infrastructure because they aren't willing to spend the money to do it. It's just not profitable for them. So it's obviously more profitable for them to lose a few premiums than it is to rake in more premium subscriptions with better service.
