Dear Crunchyroll Forums,

I'm currently watching through the Attack on Titans series at the moment...going through a few episodes before bed.

I've gotten to episode 18 (http://www.crunchyroll.com/attack-on-titan/episode-18-forest-of-giant-trees-57th-expedition-beyond-the-walls-2-642197) where, mid-way, I just felt tired and switched it off. Now, I wanted to resume watching this yesterday, but my browser kept crashing.

I've tried the following to resolve this:-

Updated Adobe Shockwave
Updated Adobe Flash
Tried on both browsers that I regularly use (Chrome and Firefox)
Restarted PC

I've skipped over to episode 19 and that works fine...and all the previous ones before it (including other series I have on the queue list)...it's just this one particular episode I can't seem to go back and watch without some Shockwave Plugin failure occuring.

Sorry, I should've noted.

I load the page alright, I see the black screen where it says "Exclusive stream for {User}"...and where I usually get advertisements, that's where it decides to fail.

I suspect maybe, at least for your Chrome browser, there might be a conflict between the OS installation of Flash and the internal Chrome installation of Flash. In the address bar of your Chrome browser, type: chrome://plugins. Then look for the Flash plug-in, and if u see 2 of them, try disabling the internal Chrome installation Flash one.

For your Firefox browser crashes, the only thing I can think of is maybe try disabling Hardware Acceleration, and maybe clearing browser cache and flash player cache (and updating your Firefox browser if u haven't already). A last resort might be to disable flash protected mode on your shockwave flash plug-in, but that may not be the best of ideas (at least long-term) since it leaves your PC less secure.

Hi suikojay,

Thanks for getting back to me. I've done the following as per your suggestions:-

Checked out Chrome and there was only 1 entry of Adobe Flash, so I just left it at that.

I already use CCleaner regularly to clean out my computer of temp files, browser cache and whatnot, but it still has this problem...also went into Firefox cache to manually do it.

I have managed to watch it now, but I had to log out of my profile to do it where it didn't try to move me back to where I last watch upto before sleeping...it's rather bizarre. Hopefully I don't have to do this too often since I quite like the Queue system while logged in.

Anyway, thanks for the tip. Appreciated!
