After replying to someone else's topic on this issue I figured it might be a better idea to post a new topic with this solution so that it easier for people to find:

If you're a Windows 10 user like me then try installing your network drivers through windows device manager, then scan for hardware changes and then let windows update download the version it wants to. If this works then if it doesn't then but just it a go and see what happens. It worked for me and I hope it works for you too.


Let me know how you get on as I'm interested in finding out if this solution help other people who are having the same problems I was on Windows 10.

I don't know if CR's version of forum software lets you change the subject after you've created a thread, but if you can, it would be a really good idea to add "for Windows 10 users" to the subject.

Choppy playback, also called st...ut...ter...ing or freezing, has been so common across all platforms on and off for over a year that you're likely to get responses that pertain to every browser and every version of Windows as well as Macs, Android phones, Roku, iPhones, etc.

Yeah can't edit unfortunately, it was like almost 4am my time when I posted this topic so was rather sleep deprived so I never thought to include Windows 10 in the title.

The issue never really been a problem for me until recently, ideally it would be better if Crunchyroll got away from flash as a means of video playback and went to HTML5 player like youtube has.

Thank you, that reminds me because my brain works in very strange ways... I need to call my manager first thing this morning. My workplace claims to have very tight infosec, so it shocked the bejeezus out of me the other night to see my workstation say it was rebooting (which raises its own questions) to do an update of Flash.

At least as I understand it this is akin to building a fortress with 3-inch-thick steel walls and doors, requiring FBI background checks on all personnel, posting security cameras and robot sentries armed with miniguns out front as well as using retina scans and embedded microchips for identification... then posting Homer Simpson in the back to open up whenever someone shouts "Password!" loud enough to be heard through the door.
