I'm just getting a blank black screen.

1. Tried two different browsers.
2. Tried two different internet connections (one satellite, one Verizon 4G).

Other video sites are working: Ex: Youtube

Have a premium account and the problem started about 30 minutes ago.

I retried an episode I just finished watching after the next one didn't play. So not episode specific. No videos seem to load at all...

That is what I'm getting. They just never play. Tried multiple browsers and connections.

There's a bug that inserts an extraneous "$" into the image ID when you upload to forum posts. I've edited your post to remove that $ so now the image does display.

Thank you. I'll remember that. I restarted my PC and videos are working again. Either was a temporary issue or a cache issue.

Hey I'm experiencing the exact issue. Like you I've tried different browsers and cleared my cache/app data but no episodes are being played. Getting the same black screen as you and restarting the computer doesn't fix the problem either. I'm on Google Chrome any idea what caused the issue for you?

Try going here:

chrome://settings/content

And scroll down to set Flash to "Allow sites to run Flash". Any other setting doesn't work for me in Chrome.

An old issue that also might cause it is "Https Everywhere" has also caused problems before

Also some unnamed extension blocking Flash, which another user reported in a different post but didn't say which, so in general try turning off extensions one at a time and restarting the browser afterwards.

Did everything as above still nothing. Crunchyroll is working fine on another computer but it's not working at all here.

The same goes in my PS3 some anime can't be watched. I tried to watch episode 1 of Problem children are coming from another world and it keeps in a black screen and then the message that says: there is a unknown video problem, please try again later appears on the screen of my tv.

I keep getting this same black screen, it sucks.

My PS4 is perfectly fine, but my PC at work is where I get this problem. I am using Chrome and I do have flash allowed.

Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesnt. Sometimes if I reload enough it will start up. Then other time I have no luck all day.

Please help!!
