So when I finish a episode of an anime/drama there are two options
1. let the ending play and then the autoplay go but to get up and put it on fullscreen again
2. get up and select the next episode and set it in fullscreen

would it be possible on the current video player to do a similar thing to netflix and have say a 15 sec wait then it loads the next episode while staying on that fullscreen player? It would really help out and to be honest it would give the site one minor yet big advantage to using this site over some illegal site like most anime watchers use.

This is probably the most requested feature, but it isn't possible with the current player. I too would like this feature, but we will have to wait for a major player overhaul.

Has CrunchyRoll ever spoke about getting a new player? It would be great if they change the player to one that supports this feature but knowing CR they won't

CR was apparently slated to introduce a new web player in the first quarter of 2014, but those plans never came to fruition and I can only assume the project was quietly shelved.

Damn it, I would have gotten premium straight away if they had the new player when I first got into anime (2014 Summer) It really is a bummer that they didn't go through on that one. They really should pick that back up and get a new one in for Summer/Autumn 2015

Really would like to see this. Huge frequent annoyance.

This is actually a feature now. If you allow it to autoplay to the next episode, it will stay in fullscreen. However if you try to advance to the next episode manually, using the skip button, it will take you out of fullscreen.

Well on the right track then. Still, needs to work when skipping as I don't ever sit through endings/credits (Hence why I never noticed).

Autoplay is only useful to me in the same regard - needs to autoplay next episode at the end of the episode - not at the end of the endings/credits. (ie like how netflix works)

Granted, I'm sure lots of folks like watching the endings/credits so I think a simple toggle would suffice much like the current autoplay toggle. Maybe even just a 3 mode toggle:

state 1: no autoplay
state 2: autoplay next track at end of track (after endings/credits)
state 3: autoplay next track at end of episode
