I set-up my laptop today, hardwired to high-speed broadband router, and plugged in my LCD TV on the HDMI port, as usual. Then loaded CR using Mozilla Firefox to watch Fate/kaleid liner. I didn't have a Membership or Guest Pass so the ads played, although at a faster rate than normal, like maybe the Ad Server or the customer had compressed the video so it would take less time to play. It was like watching an episode of Alvin and the Chipmunks. The show then started but it too was playing too fast. I used my stopwatch and after 20 seconds the show was 23-24 seconds ahead.

I figured the Flash Player was at fault so I disabled the Hardware Acceleration; nope that didn't work

I figured the browser was at fault; nope, same exact problem with Chrome

I unplugged the HDMI cable and resumed playback; eureka! Not sure how that fixed the problem! I reconnected the cable and video playback is still nice and smooth, even on 1080p after getting very lucky and locating a Guest Pass [Thank you CR and Premium Members!]

Hope this helps
