Hello friends,

2 things I notice since re-subbing for prem. 1) a lot of the relatively older shows do not stream above 480p quality. Now I understand that if the show itself wasn't made for 1080p it won't be in HD but isn't there an option to make the streaming quality HD ( i.e smoother frames etc, bigger screen)? Also the episodes for the older anime's, does crunchyroll sub them like a fansub would? I noticed sometimes there is a big lag between episodes. No complaints here but I would like to understand better.

I've moved this over to the Site Support forum.

I don't really understand what you mean by "lag between episodes" on older episodes. Can you clarify what you mean by that, and maybe give an example? (Sometimes Crunchyroll receives shows that are already subbed, but a lot of the time they handle the subs. Usually when older titles are added the episodes are added all at once, but sometimes they add them them in batches--I think that's what is currently happening with one of the Yu Gi Oh series.)

It will not look better if we upscale the material. If the source material has DVD-quality and resolution, there is no magical way to make it HD. You can filter the video for higher contrast, but you will lose detail among other things, if you do so.

I didnt mean lag in that sense of slower speed on the videos, more of what you said about yu gi oh. Also I understand that the resolution must fit the source it came from but I always wondered, if this was made for TVs why is the overall anime screen size smaller than a 17 inch computer screen?

Most older material was 4:3, not widescreen, if that is what you are referring to. Stretching it out to 16:9 would simply distort the video.
