I'm catching up on today's simulcasts and noticed that Kiznaiver lists PV1 as the next episode in my queue. I've watched it before, but the system isn't recognizing this. I suspect it's because it's only 15 seconds long. Sometimes I can resolve this by watching the episode on my Android instead, but in this case, I'm getting a "preparing this show for your device" error. Is there any way to ensure that very short videos are recognized as fully watched in the system? Alternatively, is there any way to ensure that the last episode of a series is listed in the queue as the next one, especially if previous videos were already watched? This isn't a huge problem, hence my posting here, but it would be nice if if could be fixed so that we can ensure our queues are aligned properly. Thanks!

You should be able to get theto show the correct next item to watch by watching the last 30 seconds or so of the episode or preview before it (unless it's also very short--which unfortunately in this case, those Characters promos seem to be). Anyway, once you start watching a bit of the actual episode, the queue will remember that you are there and won't bounce you back to earlier previews, even if they don't show up as watched.

Yes, you're right. Once I finished Kiznaiver episode 1 and went back to my queue, it showed that episode as watched and the most recent in the queue. So it looks like it won't go back to showing PV1 as the next unwatched show anymore. It would be nice if the issues with really short videos in the queue could be fixed, but it's not a serious problem as long as the queue keeps you in place once the first real episode is viewed. Thanks.
