This new player IS SO GOOD. I can finally skip ahead during an episode instead of being worried it'll freeze and I have to refresh and wait another 5 minutes before I can even get back to my original time. Instead having to pause and let the show buffer, it actually plays FLUID. Please never make me go back to the old player, I've considered canceling my subscription to this site because of how many issues the current player has. THIS NEW PLAYER WORKS PLEASE USE IT

I do not like this new video player at all. If you watching a series that you’ve watched before, you can’t start from the beginning or rewind or anything! There is an annoying orange circle in the middle of the screen and you can’t enlarge or stop playback or anything! This is ridiculous! I paid for a year of premium service and I’m not getting what I paid for. The adobe flash player worked just fine. I should not have to do anything to my computer or device to get what I paid for! This is RIDICULOUS!

I'm not sure if CR monitoring this thread, but I guess better to leave it here as well.

In New Player, if timing of Line2 overlaps with Line1 and this lines share same alignment, Line2 will be drawed over the old Line1 (look at he "C" at Line1).

In this case, Player draws Line2 too close to Line1 borders and let them collide.

Example under spoiler.

Subs could still use work. Some bugs freeze the subs some times and the scene continues without them.

Could we get skip intro song options or a placeholders on a loading bar that indicate the "intro/previous episode recap->opening->main video->ending->next episode preview"? Or anything along these lines since not all anime follow the same format some just goes to opening song first There are many openings that are just amazing to listen but mostly me personally listens to each opening and ending song at least once and for further episodes likes to skip them to watch the anime

The main post tells you how you can switch back to the old player .
"If you have the new video player and wish to switch back to the old version, you will need to go to your browser’s settings/tools option and clear your cookies, then refresh the site. There is a 50% chance the page will load with the old player. If it does not, simply repeat this process until the desired player is loaded."

This would probably be nice to test out... if the video player would even load for me.

This "skip intro" feature will require manual mapping of each episode, as most of the episodes have unique composition and even length of opening and ending is not the same for every episode (some of it just start playing music before op or ed actually starts, so video is shorter than 1:30, other just made shorter, like 1:10, 1:00 or even 0:30).

It's actually quite rare for anime to have opening and ending at the same place for each episode.

I only request one thing when it comes to the new player. There is one thing that the old player had that I liked about it over this new player. That was the floating timestamp when hovering over the timeline. If we could have this back, I would accept it as a solution to the "skip opening" request because a lot of people here on CR will post the timestamp where the opening and recap end, and I am thankful to the people that do this. So, if we could just have a floating timestamp whenever hovering over the player's timeline like the old player had, I greatly appreciate it.

It's great that there's updates going on for the video player, and also that our input is being heard. So far, besides the issues some people are having it all sounds good, except I have to seriously beg you guys to make the following change:

"* Fullscreen mode will exit when switching between episodes."


An option users can choose for themselves in settings or something instead of a uniform thing.

The fact that Cruchyroll's "autoplay" stays in "fullscreen" mode between episodes is one of the main reasons I decided to subscribe here over other anime sites in the first place. I hook my laptop up to my TV, so not having to get up and walk across the room after every episode to change it back to fullscreen has been AMAZING. I mean, the whole reason I select "fullscreen" & "autoplay" together is because I want to watch multiple episodes in fullscreen. That change is pretty inconvenient for people who want to binge watch their shows in fullscreen, and don't want to be right next to their laptops while watching.
