I'm a premuim user, don't do much else on Crunchyroll besides watch anime.
I always watch 1080p whenever it is available but I've also been noting it happen to 720p alwell.

Sometimes I like to pause an episode right in the middle to go get some food, sometimes it requires more than 10 minutes if I want to get take out and when I come back to resume my anime it would freeze after a minute.
It only seems to freeze when I leave the episode paused for an extended duration of time.
Is this system on purpose?
I get kinda annoying when I have refresh the page in order to continue watching.

I've run into this issue also. I notice it in chrome but haven't really spent the time to figure out if its all browsers.

Crunchyroll doesn't buffer.

It streams as you watch it. I think it provides higher quality video and audio.

When you leave it paused for that length of time I believe it does time out as its not buffering.

I'm using Chrome as well, I forget that other browsers exist sometimes.

Yeah, can't pause it in the middle like that for extended periods of time. If you do that you might as well make a note of the timestamp and reload the page
