It really is ridiculous that i'm paying to use this site, yet on days like Saturday it's barely usable and even when it isn't Saturday i have issues. I'll be watching my video when it suddenly resets back to 0:00 and this is happening so often today it peeved me off enough to make a post.

The icing of the cake so to speak is that I can go to a free anime site and have none of these problems and have a wider variety of anime. How do I know this? I've been using the free site for ages before going to crunchy roll.

Well, When new shows drop like attack on titan, you should expect server issues because there is a flood of people trying to watch the same show at the same time. Other than that the streams seem to be great on my end.

If Crunchyroll uses a CDN this shouldn't be an issue

There is an HTML player you can use to improve your experience. It is an extension by Beardfist, one of the employees.

Yeah it is happening to me too, every Saturday I like to watch Attack On Titan with my Chromecast and it is hard because I have to try to play the video multiple times. It's annoying.

CR does use a CDN - but not all CDNs are created equal. It's clear that they've had numerous issues with their CDN and have been working to change the codecs/encoding. It's just that I don't think they have enough revenue to compensate for a decent CDN that would allow for a seamless operation when a new episode comes out.

It works on my desktop, but I do have a beefy connection. Could be smoother but it's OK. I use Firefox.

I had a reply explaining what was going on but cloudflare checked for dddos protection and ERASED MY WHOLE REPLY. F******* crunchyroll is becoming unusable. Fix your damn forums and fix your damn service!

This has been going on for sometime and the weekends are much worse I no longer watch anime from
CR .I view it elsewhere! I only come here to talk with my friends or sometimes comment in these forums.

-Crunchyroll needs to their act together.

You figure they pull at least 12-15 million a month. Depending on currency.

I don't know what you can do with that kind of money, on top of possible add revenue.

Oh well, not my time or place to say, just throwing it out there. It's all about priorities. So buy some merch yall
