Crunchyroll has been buffering the video awfully slow these past few weeks to the point where I have to watch it on 480p if I want it to be smooth and not choppy. I know it's not my connection. Sometimes I wonder if it's worth paying money to watch 480p videos on here.

Bottom line question is, what on earth is going on Crunchyroll?! I love everything that's featured on here and I would love to pay $6.99 per two weeks to support you guys, but there's no point if I can't watch it on 1080p let alone 720p (720p is still choppy as hell at a rate of 1 second per chop).

Sure it recovers if I press pause, but it reverts back to it's choppy state, but if the video often glitches by freezing when I press pause.

Settling it now, I want my question to be answered. Don't try and tell me that I need to upgrade my router and everything else because I have a fairly expensive router and upgraded internet and I'm using the 5G on my router. Why is Crunchyroll so slow on 1080p? It wasn't like this before this year.

Sorry. Umm even the forum seems buggy. Previewed my message and then hit post and it ended up posting my message twice.

If you catch it in under an hour, you can delete the extra one yourself if you wish...

I've been having the same problem lately. It's been stuttering and skipping a lot...
I found this: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-806769/whats-going-on-with-my-computer
But I don't know why it would be working fine a couple weeks ago and now it's barely working at all.

I've also been having this problem, i thought it might have been needing to clear out my cache or temp internet files but it still persists. I do not have any problem on any other streaming sites or services. Please fix this we don't pay for premium to not be able to watch our shows.
