Can someone tell me why my language settings keep changing for videos? I'd like to keep it set to Japanese with English Subs but lately (especially on mobile) it'll automatically play the next episode in English.

I don't see a way to fix this myself. Please advise?

Aaand now it's gone back to the way I want it. It seems to change at random!

what shows are you watching? Some shows are available on CR only as dub. There is no way to play those as Japanese with English Sub.

A few shows are available in both a sub version and a dub version, and they are listed in a similar way as if they were different seasons of the same show--make sure you are not accidently choosing your episode from the dub version.

The video language settings are for choosing your preferred subtitle language--it is not for choosing sub versus dub.

I usually just click on the next episode in my queue. It was happening while watching Toradora (which has both a sub and a dub version available). The version I queued was definitely the subbed version so I don't know why it switches between the two when I select from my list?

I mean I guess the only real fix would be to select from the list of episodes rather than from queue.

Both the sub and dub of Toradora are on the same show page, so when you add it to your queue you are adding both the sub and the dub--Ep 1-25 of the sub followed by Ep 1-25 of the dub.

I supposed it could be a technical glitch, and if the last episode you watched was sub (and not episode 25) and just clicking the main queue button got you to a dub, then it sounds like it is. (If your queue was indicating last episode watched as ep 25 of sub, then it would have automatically advanced to Ep 1 of dub.)

However, if you were watching in the middle of subs and at some point you accidentally chose the dub from the show page, or by scrolling through the episode list under the main queue entry, then that's where it would pick up from in your queue for the next episode - dub followed by dub. But if you then went back and manually chose one of the sub episodes and watched it, then the queue would start advancing from that point to the next sub episode.
