Though I have a very good connection for streaming HD video (home is 50/10Mbps, school is 100/100Mbps), I would still always get constant freezing every few minutes or so. I have tried everything from different browsers, different versions of Flash Player, different DNSes, etc, but it never resolved the issue.

I tried using a media center application to stream my Crunchyroll, and I have not had ANY issues since then. Basically, what I did was download a program called Kodi (formerly XMBC), download the Crunchyroll add-on, and stream my shows from there. It basically feels like using the Xbox or PS Crunchyroll apps (like having to add your shows to the queue, and there are no search functions).

It's definitely a nuisance, but at least I could watch my shows without interruption.

Since there are very wide ranges of issues that could be causing your freezing issue, this might not work for you, but I hope this can help those of you sharing the same problem as me.

Good luck.

Doesn't fix my buffering issues, but it does solve all the problems with freezing and episode skipping. It's a bit sad that a third party plugin is better than the in-house flash player.

In Kodi set your cache config to cache the entire video ( http://kodi.wiki/view/how-to:modify_the_video_cache )-> play a video and pause instantly -> wait 2-5 minutes then resume with most of the show buffered

Thanks Hawker14, this fixed it for me.

It's a shame I have to provide my credentials to a third party just to watch in HD. Please sort your in-browser streaming out, Crunchyroll.

A great third party tool I presume...hopefully Crunchyroll sorts out their...who am I kidding..it's already 2015, closing in on 2016 and still no promises being fulfilled. Does anyone remember when they said they would roll out more CDN servers and revamp their video player for 2014...? Pepperidge farm remembers...

Wow this is actually a great idea. I just wish that the "in-house" player worked since we're paying for it to.

Yep, still tired of Crunchyroll's crap freezing constantly and crashing as well. I don't have this issue with any other flash player, or any other video site.

If only Netflix had the amount of Anime this site has.

Worked for me.

Happy it works, sad it had to come outside of the service i'm paying for. A person might as well steal content if they have to do this kind of trouble to get the content they pay for to work.

My testing of kodi has been wonderful as well so far. As Crunchroll is cutting off my devices I may go this direction. I feel the long term support for the kodi plugin is better than anything crunchroll provides.

Wow, this actually solved all my video buffering/stuttering issues.

So it's not CR's servers after all, it's that damn flash player plug-in that's the issue!

Firefox has blacklisted Flash a few hours ago; Facebook's security team has started calling for an end-of-life date for Flash. Looks like the recent 0-day Flash vulnerabilities possessed by the Hacking Team prove to be too much for companies like Mozilla and Facebook.

I wish they'd get rid of the Pause button when it obviously doesn't work right.
Every time I pause the video, I have to refresh the page because it stops buffering.

Never had this issue in any other streaming service.

The only issue I have with this is that they bar at the bottom of the screen stays around for way too long. Is there a way to fix that?
