This is a "Thank You" note to the development team and Crunchyroll for addressing and resolving the Android 6.x on the Nexus Player
v 1.0.27 (date Jan 25, 2016) appears to work swimmingly.
ALSO the "Leanback Compatible" addition is awesome!!!! Nice :)
Only one thing that I noticed so far (for later consideration) is that the "pause" will lose cache and will have to re-cache instead of instantly restarting. Certainly no biggie.
Thank you Crunchyroll !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
happy happy anime is back on my Nexus Player
I'm a level 0 because I carry the ImageBreaker
