Some times while watching a show, the image will freeze, but the show will continue. The strange thing is, the next scene bleeds into the still image. It's hard to describe, but I have a picture below. This has happened with a multitude of shows. This isn't even the worst of it.



It get's pretty weird sometimes.

It's almost certainly not your browser (ie: the "internet program" mentioned by the above poster). If Crunchyroll allowed native HTML5 playback (like YouTube), perhaps, but since they use a custom Flash player, and the Flash plugin will be the same for all browsers (it's installed in the Windows directory), the playback should be the same regardless.

Now, it might be that you have a out-of-date version of Flash. Go to Adobe's site and download the latest version (be wary of their attempts to add adware to your download, though). If you're not on Windows, version lag may also be an issue.

One other issue might be internet connectivity. If some of the data is lost or corrupted along the way, the player might lose the ability to continue updating the video track. (I have no idea how good CR's player's error correction is.) Fixing that will be a bit trickier.

An exception would be web browsers that have Flash "baked in" such as Google Chrome and Internet Explorer in Windows 8 and later.

Ah, bleh. Forgot that Chrome does that. Didn't know IE did it as well. Of course Chrome is also dropping support for NPAPI later this year; I should find out how that's going to affect Chrome's use of Flash.
