Yesterday my Crunchyroll app on my WiiU, phone, and the website all started having some really unusual buffering time. The video would pause to buffer quite frequently and frankly it's preventing true binge. The problem isn't my Internet connection because no other video sites are getting this problem, so I was wondering am I the only one this just happened to, and better yet do you know of a way to fix it. Thank you in advance.

I've moved this to Site Support / Minor Questions.

Is this still happening? I haven't experienced any recent problems with this (I usually watch on Roku and also a bit on my iPhone--but usually that's using my cell data plan and I'm never surprised by buffering issues there)

Having the same problem, CR won't even play SD smoothly despite 1080p working on every other streaming site (even free ones)

Considering cancelling my membership if they don't get their game together. I can't even stream 720p without waiting for buffering on a good day, not to mention the Australian catalogue being half the size of the US catalogue for the same price.

I'm getting exactly same problem. The animes I watch constantly get extremely choppy and difficult to watch -- I've tried refreshing it, checked if I had built in plugin or not and nothing.

It usually takes me between 5 to shitton amount of refreshes before it finally *does* run smoothly. It's seriously annoying.

Yes, it's still happening. It doesn't just magically go away on its own, Crunchyroll has to "actually do something" in order for this problem to go away permanently, but they won't, because they're too busy trying to make sure their service is on every single fucking platform out there in the world. They seriously have their priorities backwards, it's saddening.

happening for me too. and the darn thing just recently started to play smoothly for once after about 2+ months of crappy stream play. Fiures I'm back where I was in a nightmare of buffering/freezing. No other sites is giving me issues just CR again.

This also affecting me. Frequent choppiness and unwatchable stuttering.
