It is most noticeable when the camera is scrolling steadily and a new line of subtitles is shown. If there was an option to show the dropped frames, I'm sure the counter would go up.

I have the same problem with Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 8.1, Google Chrome on Windows 8.1 and Google Chrome on Ubuntu Linux 14.10

Is my computer too slow? In the task manager it shows that one of four cores is completely busy while playing videos on CrunchyRoll, even tough i use a resolution of just 480p. Why does the player not use all of my cores at the same rate? With XBMC/Kodi I can fluently play even 1080p Hi10p Anime fansubs without issues.

My HTPC:
CPU+GPU: AMD Athlon 5350, 4x 2.05GHz
Memory: 8 GB DDR3-1600 single channel
Storage: 128 GB SSD
Internet: DSL 10 MBit

I think the Crunchyroll developers should at least improve the performance of the code that renders the subtitles as it seems like it slows down the rendering of the video.

It could be a flash player / graphics card driver problem.

Are both up to date?

Have you tried the option beside widescreen to open the video separately? Just to see if that works.

Everything was working good until a couple of days ago ! I had to relaod the video /Shirobako at least 10 times ( no lie there ) Even Log Out and Reboot! That was with two different browsers!

I even tried SD and it finally got done but at least two reloads !

The whole website is slow pages take long to load .

I use Funimation too no problems there so its not my end!

My 4th ticket wiil be going out today! Why do we pay for this?

I upgraded my HTPC CPU to an Intel Pentium G3258 Anniversary Edition, 2x 3.20GHz. Now my problems are gone.
