Is it possible to bring back the ability to pop-out the window?

edit (9-24-18): Over the past few days the new player now seems to be working consistently under xubuntu w/ FF. without me changing anything on my end in regards to Firefox settings.

this is very diappointing.

wish they could've waited until all the current season stuff was over. nothing I've done can get the new player to work.
so the flashplayer was THE only usable option.

even with a live-DVD of xubuntu 18.04, the new player wouldn't work with firefox esr - it would either be a blank white box or a still image that never played.

bye CR. it was a good run, but I can't pay for a service I can't use.


Check for adblock/scriptblocking/private mode.

I miss the old player since it actually worked. Roll out the new one when all the features the old one had are implemented...

If I moved everyone at where I work to the new Microsoft Exchange server before it was ready and quit working all the time, I would have been fired.

Seriously though, don't have the controls locked when buffering...

New player never seems to stop buffering, even at low video qualities like 480p. Have tried refreshing my cookies repeatedly to get the old one, but no luck. Flash one certainly didn't look as nice but it at least worked pretty seamlessly.

For Naruto you'd have to use one of the apps to watch with English subtitles for the time being, for example the Windows 10 UWP app for the PC.


Also @ Radioactive24
From this thread:

In any case, once the player is rolled out to 100% of users, there will be no going back to the Flash player for anyone.

They probably should have mentioned this in the first post.


Cheers buddy, it works

Would CR mind putting in a "use old player" button when we get stuck randomly with the broken new player? At least give us a way to fall back rather than forcing this junk on us before it's ready.

I think I must have been bumped to the new player because now I have no video whatsoever.

There's just a big ol' blank space where video is supposed to be, and yes, I have the latest browser that is quite capable of HTML5.

le sigh.

Oh and please don't take shortcuts like you did in the mobile app. I'm shocked that it's less functional w.r.t subtitles than the Flash player.

1. IE11: no support, I guess that's a done deal

2. Edge: It plays, but controls are inaccessible if resuming a partially-watched video. Even with a new video, it's almost impossible to change the volume setting. I click the speaker icon, and it won't let me pull the slider.

3. Chrome: The only usable choice for me, but I have a couple of issues there as well. There doesn't seem to be a way to turn off autoplay. I don't generally want to watch multiple issues back-to-back.

Also with Chrome video resolution preference is gone from user profile, and in the video itself it takes some fiddling to change resolution via the gear icon, and the setting is not retained and always goes back to auto on next viewing.

Is the intent to get more people to use VRV?

I'm experiencing subtitle lag. The subtitles don't always line up with the voices. Some are on too long and then the next few go really fast to catch up. Some lines feel like they are missing all together or being skipped to keep up with the video. I use Firefox.

Player isn't working for me in Chrome. Strange since I was one of the 50% who had it already and up until now it's been fine, but ever since last night the player isn't working in Chrome. Tried all the troubleshooting suggestions people have thrown out and nothing's changed. It worked for me in Edge, but having to use a separate browser from my main just for a single website is ridiculous.

It's a friggin nightmare. I guess my long term Crunchyroll membership may be coming to an end, BECAUSE CAN"T WATCH NUTHIN!

Fix your technical problems!!!

Not sure if been posted or not but possible to add functionality to skip to next episode, if available, like in old player?

Is there a way to not exit out of full-screen mode when going to next video or at least make it an option in our user settings so we can have it stay in full-screen mode if we want? its a pain in the ass to have to keep hitting full-screen mode on another monitor when I'm trying to work every time an episode ends. This was one of the features that made me want to subscribe to cr in the first place. now you take it away from us... another option would be to just let us use the old player if we want to since I never had issues with it. please add this feature back in.
