As i gennerally watch cr in a roku 3 i have found that starting the episode, pausing and switching back to cabel to channel surf for a few minutes, then returning to the anime lets me enjoy it in full hd glory with surround sound no problem. More often than not the problem with streaming vidio on a pc or mack is not the download speed but the devices memory, and the ammount of shit/ widgets running in the background sucking up system resources.

480 is basic low end old analouge tv. So yeah i imagine you have no problem there. I watch in 1080i on my roku on a 50" tv with full surround sound home theter system thanks to the roku. Other than certain high volume times i have no issues if i just pause the vidio at start and let it buffer for a few minutes
And i am in an apartment building that shares shitty free wifi over dsl amungst 200 apartments

Hey, I've been have a problem with crunchyroll since the end of September and the beginning of this month. Every time I try to watch a show there is always constant buffering from start to finish. If I pause it for a few minutes it plays for maybe 1 minute and then buffers again. I've done the cache and cookies stuff, and I don't think the problem is my internet.

Has anyone else had this problem and was able to fix it? If so, how?


First of all remove all catch data and cookies from your computer since you might have gotten a corrupt catch file saved on your computer by CR. Once removed just close your browser and go back here since they should install by default (unless you've disabled catch and cookies).

Wireless or wired? Wired is better and more stable. What type of Wifi (wireless card) does your computer have if you're using wireless, 2.4GhZ or 5 GhZ? 5 is the better one and is much more stable!

Do you have Flash, Javascript and HTML5 enabled? If you have all of those enabled and no corrupt then it everything should work from CR and your end. But your ISP is the middle hand and they might have bad ping to CR's server based on it's location. And if you're using a proxy or VPN service in between you and you're ISP then the connection WILL be slowed down to some degree.

Anyhow if you're on mac open up the terminal and type "ping www.crunchyroll.com (Report the "lost" percent)" and "tracert crunchyroll.com" in CMD if you're using a PC. Then tell me or print screen your results

Or just use a cheap ass roku then u can run it in hd on your tv rather than sqinting at a laptop without all that hastle, and of course a roku won't get viruses and keyloggers because you surffed porn or downloaded a pirated song :-:D
The roku also has a remote that let's you pause, play forward, reverse ect rather than trying to click on that stupid vidio progress bar on the bottom. A must feature whennwatching subs in a fast mooving dialouge show like durarara.
Hell even streaming from your droid phone via a $ 30 chromecast to your tv will yeald better results again for the same reasons

If there's a ping issue with your connection then it'll have problems no matter what device you're on. Also you won't get a virus in a PC/mac if you're on secure websites, I've had no virus protection for years and not a single virus. And yet again, if there's a ping problem then a phone won't be able to give you better results. And no a phone won't be better due to compression for mobile devices

99.999999% of the time the problem is the mac or pc as all of those people offering that huge pile of complicated computer speàk said. Or the op can simply buy a roku or chromecast, let it bufferna few minutes and usually it will play just fine. No advanced degree in computer tcehnoligy/ it required

Fyi chromecast is a stand alone device much like the roku that simply uses an android device on the same wifi network as the controler it does not actually stream the content. If you actually knew what you were talking about at the verry least you would know that

When using the Chromecast with a phone, one is no longer streaming from the phone; as soon as you "cast" to the Chromecast, it fetches its own stream.

People unfamiliar with the Chromecast tend to get confused, as it can simply mirror what is on the phone's screen, but that isn't the normal mode of operation.

Well my point remains the same, if you have a bad ping between the server and your connection point (location) then no matter what you'll have a bad connection unless you solve the ping problem first with a VPN, proxy or similar service. Just 'cause your using a chromecast or Roku doesn't change that fact in some magical way since it all comes down the the connection in the end.

And I don't personally use those type of devices since I have no use for them, hence I don't really know much about them

Some ISPs will intercept and snoop on your traffic before routing them through less than ideal paths. I noticed with Comcast that if I used google's DNS or openDNS I would get better performance. (and sometimes even using a VPN would result in less ping while gaming... something that should NEVER happen but it does...)

One item to keep in mind is the Flash streams for the web browser player and the HLS streams for devices are served from two different content delivery networks. It is entirely possible (and indeed happens) to have one work fine and the other have a problem.
