I am unable to cast the iOS app to my TV because it just buffers 90% of the time or completely freezes on a single frame. I can watch CR on iOS by itself and also on my Xbox without issue. The problem appears to be with the cast feature of the app because I can still use chromecast perfectly fine with every other app.

I'm experiencing very slow video loading on my chromecast too, only within the last hour aswell. It buffers all the time and just now , stopped streaming automatically.

Prior to about 1-2 hours ago I was streaming videos and they were working fine
I can also watch videos directly from my phone fine

I'm streaming from android (samsung galaxy s3 4g) I get the same issue if I stream to my chromecast from the google chrome browser plugin on my laptop aswell

Just an update. I can't even load the videos at all now, the screen is just black with the episode description. I have reinstalled the app but still no luck. My connection is fine because I can use YouTube, Google Play, and even the free AnimeLab app perfectly without any troubles.

I'm experiencing the same issue on iOS crunchyroll app with Chromecast, I can cast Netflix/Youtube ok with my iOS device (all app/OS updated to the latest current version), but when it comes to Crunchyroll, I select Chromecast and it freezes on buffer on the TV....

I've tried the following:
- Uninstalled Crunchyroll on iOS
- Uninstalled Chromecast app
- Uninstalled both
- Factory reset Chromecast, Rebuilt iOS on the phone, reinstalled all apps, setup Chromecast using the iPhone

All of the thing's I've tried doesn't work.

I've tried testing it on an Android device and I had no problem with it... Maybe I'll test it on Multiple Apple device tomorrow (iPad Gen3 + multiple other iPhones)

I have the exact same issue. Playback on chromecast doesnt work when i use my iOS device to cast.

the whole point of having paid subscription is so i wont have to cast from my PC.

Actually, even on my PC, i can no longer use the Chrome Browser's cast function - same issue?!

I haven't been able to cast anything from Crunchyroll iOS app or desktop website since last Wed/Thursday. I uninstalled all the apps and reset my Chromecast too, but still no luck.

When I try to cast it gets stuck buffering forever. If I try to stop the buffering video and resume, the app crashes.

I believe there has been an increase in chromecast related issues recently but the majority of cases have been on android platforms. I tried to reproduce your issue on my iOS but have been unsuccessful at the moment so sadly I can't really help you directly. However I can give you this https://crunchyroll.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

Please leave us a request there so we can be sure the team will be working on your issue. Thanks for making us aware of the issue and please keep us posted.

Can you try using Chromecast with the latest update of the Crunchyroll iOS app? It works for me.

We released an update for the Chromecast dongle today. Let me know if those issues were fixed.
