I view Crunchyroll on my Desktop computer. If you have ever played online games fps mmorpg etc, you know a clicker. That would be me. MR CLICKER. WoW,Starcraft,LoL, I click and use the mouse to play( Don't fall for the old saying CLICKERS suck or can't keep up, as I have no issues playing/keeping up with others due to 12 button mice with macros/keybind ability) I tend to have my keyboard sitting next to me out of the way to allow more room for comfort when viewing/gaming. I tend to rarely use the keyboard at all so it is normally off. I have on occasion found I have no choice to use it other than a onscreen keyboard( which is a hassle in itself), due to program's or app's lacking the functions or features that enable ease of use/access .Crunchyroll is one of these sites/apps/programs that require me to use a keyboard at times, and for a silly reason in my opinion lol.

At the end of viewing a video/clip in full-screen, when there are no more in the Que or you don't have auto play next episode turned on ( E.G. There are no more episodes after the one being viewed or week by week episodes etc) you get left with a full-screen black image showing the repeating links to different anime's or other episodes coming up or previously watched of the show.

There is no button as per-say that allows you to go from full-screen to normal windows( albeit f11 or esc)in Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

Apps allow you to not have this issue on mobile phones.The desktop/laptop viewers using a webpage(crunchyroll.com) on Chrome or Firefox are effected( maybe other browsers also but they are only ones I use so only ones I know of)

Microsoft Edge is not effected as it has something added to the browser that works in the same way that Windows 10 Films and T.V. player works. It has a button/overlaid button that shows up with a mouseover, that allows you to pop from full-screen to the normal webpage with a smaller window.

I know you don't make the browsers, so can't be expected to make Google Chrome or Firefox adapt this feature, however you could add a button to your player for when the video ends, or a x button to the top right corner.This would make it easier to navigate out of the windows for those of us who don't use a keyboard.

Now just to think on.

On a side note, It kind of sucks when the add/banner you display at the top of a window saying watch this show or watch this new episode( the little blue bar at top of clips that has a description a worded link and x button) when the shows are not even valid shows for your region. E.G. A not licensed in your region anime is being advertised to you to watch above your current episode. You click the link to find out that you can't watch it because you live in the toilet bowl of the world.... Australia, where we only get things if we pay through the nose for it.. Our monthly sub cost more per month than the U.S when you consider what they have available to them and what we get. We are essentially paying the same price for a third, yes thats right ,1/3, of the the listed animes in America..That kindo of sucks. Worse still, is when you put season 2 up of a anime but there is no season 1 available anywhere but on a dvd. Yowamushi pedal for instance, season 1 not licensed in Australia by ANYONE yet season 2 is. I watched them on fansub site, but never finished as site was shut down due to S.O.P.A crap I want to watch season 2, but haven't finished season 1, so why bother.

Previously I have asked for pay per view on unlicensed episodes( I assume most of the reason it isn't licensed in our country is because we have too little subscription base to be able to afford it, So then the pick and choose happens each season to work out the best amount of anime's for the allotted budget subscription base in Australia provides)., !3 dollars roughly a season would be enough. By paying 1 dollar a episode for a anime that is licensed in the U.S. for instance, to be View-able here in Australia, everyone wins. AND I MEAN EVRYONE, from rights holder, through to the viewer. Yes we may have different classification laws etc, but I am pretty sure the companies you are hosting the shows for, would be willing to receive a cut of 1 dollar minus Crunchyroll share, compared to me pirating the episode and paying them and Crunchyroll nothing.


If you take your accountants and make them go over the FACTS about pirating and where it is most prevalent and why it is most prevalent in those countries( Australia being one of the highest in the world), and then the FIGURES pirating cost to both the end user and the producers, you would find I AM CORRECT in saying a pay per view feature, is the ONLY way you will stop people like myself from PIRATING anything and everything that ISN'T LOCALLY AVAILABLE. I have no problem paying for a service, but I refuse to wait 6-12 months and pay for something even people in the 3rd world have access to, legally, right now, and alot of the time at a discounted rate.
Region coding on DVD'S NEVER worked( encoding process through clone dvd etc removes region encoding), much the same as I could CHOOSE to run my vpn when watching animes( legal in Australia) and force CRUNCHYROLL to give me U.S access.I don't but It can be done.
The money being invested in the I.T industry has waned, coders and programmers are worth a grain of salt now, compared to 10 years ago. That being said there is no excuse to have outdated technology. Simply put, pirating, and illegal streaming occurs because the INDUSTRY refuse's to INVEST IT'S PROFITS in keeping itself current and up to date.Until Netflix arrived Crunchyroll was essentially the ONLY streaming website you could pay for outside of porn websites in Australia. Netflix arrived and all of a sudden the pirating in Australia daily went down from near 2 million people to roughly 1.5 million. the more that was added to the site to view the less pirated from our country.At the end of the day, most 1st world country citizens CAN afford to pay 1 dollar per episode for a series they may want to watch. Limiting your own revenue because of incomplete/lax programming or web design, is kinda of counter productive to a internet based company.

That's not how licensing works. That's never been how licensing has worked.

It looks like some of Yowamushi Pedal is also on AnimeLab in Australia (because.moe is a handy resource).

CR is currently beta testing an HTML5 player, open to Premium+ members, that may already have, or be able to include, the fullscreen exit button.
