I have seen a fair amount of posts recently, where people looking to get help fixing the slow buffering, and loading the current CR player has. I have posted my way to fix it in comments on some of those posts, but understandably no one really sees them. >.< The issue I was having was the player staying on a Black Screen for a good 20 seconds or so. When it would finally load the anime I couldn't skip forward, (Through the opening theme) without having to buffer again for 20s-2/3mins. The player seemed unresponsive, and like I was watching it with incredibly slow internet speed. I have 1GB/s internet speed and can stream 4k res easily, so I knew it wasn't my internet. After looking for days to find something to fix it I was directed to trying an HTML 5 player, instead of the flash player CR was making me use. I added the extension to chrome and it Immediately Fixed everything that was wrong with CR. It loads just like any other Youtube video, or any other streaming site. I am not sponsored, or affiliated with these extensions, I just want to try and help get this issue solved for as many people as I can, it get extremely frustrating when your video wont play right.

These are links I have found that fix the problem on either browser. I am not liable for any damage you may cause your machine from downloading this software.

This one is for Chrome:
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/crunchyroll-html5/ihegfgnkffeibpmnajnoiemkcmlbmhmi?hl=en

And, this one is for Fire Fox:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/crunchyroll-html5-unofficial/?src=search

I couldn't find anything for Internet Explorer but honestly who uses those anyways...

If those don't work for you, try finding an HTML5 player extension for CR that works for you. I hope this fixes the issue that everyone has been having, feel free to comment below if it works for you, or if you find better versions of the players/ CR HTML5 players for other browsers.

So far the player seems to be doing great, I feel like I can actually get invested into shows without the tension stopping due to a bad buffer. It might just be me, but the subtitles seem more solid and easier to read as well. Thank you so much for making this post, you are a god send!!

It's no problem I think people are a little hesitant to try it... It really does fix all the problems with the old loader, and I also agree that the subs look better for sure XD

Quick and easy fix. I was getting quite irritated paying for a service that didn't work for me 15% of the time. Thank you.

I'm wary of those as I don't like the idea of inputting my login details into a 3rd party programme. I'm putting my trust into the fact that they haven't inserted code to capture the login details.

Is there a speed up for the app? Knowing how apps work I assume not. However I am notably annoyed at how I'm paying for premium for a half functional service yet pirate sites work well and are free

Do you have a fix for the mobile app? It runs just fine on my PC but the app version always buffers for long periods of times and does the audio/ video loop thing quite often even on wifi as good as yours.
