So the question relates to the progress bar underneath each video (You know, the orange bar at the bottom of each video)

But anyways I don't know if everyone experiences this, but when I watch any anime on my computer the progress of that episode doesn't fill out.

BUT if I watch that episode on my Xbox One, the episode bar is filled. I am more or less a completionist and I would like to see if this problem could be looked at. Or I just have to deal with it.

Mind you, I DO watch every episode of anime from beginning to end, but the very last bit of it still remains if I decide to re-watch that same episode.

Any tips or answers would be greatly appreciated!

There's an unofficial extension written by one of the mods that works with the Chrome browser, which adds elements to the show pages that you manually mark individual episodes as (fully) read (among having other nice features). You can read about it here: /group/Beardfists_Programming_Corner



Once you click that, then this comes up with extra check-marks. Any unfinished shows will have a gray check instead of the orange completed one. You then just click those and they turn orange and mark the show as read.

That's pretty common with shore episodes. I've just always replayed the last bit of the episode a couple of times when I see that's happened. It seems to eventually show as fully watched when I do that.

This is a frequent problem with shorts such as Teekyu. The way the video player tracks your position in the video is to update the time every 30 seconds for the first two updates then every 60 seconds after that. Because the show is only exactly 120 seconds (for the episode pictured it is 120.14) the third check often misses. The player doesn't care how far in the video you are just that either 30 or 60 seconds worth has passed. Since there is a bit of lag between the exact 30 or 60 second mark and when it actually sends the info to the server it can introduce a small amount of error that will cause the third check to be outside the length of the video. For example, watching it right now, the first time check fires at 30.285 and the second at 61.683 making the earliest the third could fire at 121.683 which is past the end of the video.

The simplest way to properly update the time is to watch about the last 30 seconds of the episode after refreshing the page.

I actually get this problem with longer shows too.

Teekyu was just used as an example since you can see the problem a lot better than other normal length shows.

This sort of makes sense, but I honestly wish that the video player here on crunchyroll was a little more precise with making sure every episode of anime has been watched completely.

Also this problem isn't only affecting short animes with me. It also affects the regular sized anime that I watch.... Kinda frustrating actually..

Yeah it'll affect everything, it is just more of a problem for shorts since you need to have watched a certain percentage of an episode for the site to think that you finished that particular episode. When it messes up on shorts, it often makes it think you haven't watched the episode to the end and won't change it in your queue. The same 30 second trick will work regardless of the video length. Or if you want something more exact you can use the extension linked above.
