Hello all. Since it is now summertime, I'm sure many of you (myself included) are taking advantage of the free time by watching your favorite shows as well as new onesl. If you marathon shows like I do, then perhaps you have had the same thought as me. That thought being, "I'm so invested in this show that I'd really like to get back to the meat of it by skipping over the opening or ending." Don't get me wrong, I love openings/endings to shows; it introduces catchy songs, gives a theme to the show via music, and so on. However, after watching a couple of episodes I can't help but feel that sometimes openings get in the way, especially during intense, cliffhanger moments. That is why I would like to suggest Crunchyroll add time stamps to videos. I'm not a computer wizard or programmer, so I'm not sure if it's even possible. That's mainly why I wanted to email someone at Crunchyroll to find out more. Unfortunately, to the best of my knowledge, one can not do such a thing. Instead I settled for making this voting poll to see how others feel about it.

I would like to reiterate: I am in no way shaming Opening or Ending credits to shows. This is solely for helping people watch their shows more efficiently. If the opening and ending credits are 1 minute and 30 seconds each, then each episode has 3 minutes of downtime. That means that each season basically has over a half hour of non-content. I am well aware that you can just skip the time if you do quick math in your head. That is why, again, if this were to be used it would only improve efficiency.

is it possible? yes. people have been doing that for ages.
will CR add that option? unlikely, though i'm sure people would find it helpful. the premium users that is (this probably won't work for free users)

Good point. It would make for a nice little incentive to upgrade to a premium user. Maybe

trust me, there's already plenty of incentive to not be a free user (that uses CR for anime)
not the good kind of incentive, mind you.
