NO it DOES have quality options, BUt they don't appear all the time, depending on what computer I try, it's a software problem I think.

yeah pentium4 2.4g, I only keep plugged in because it has ecc memory, good for some things.

I think you are right, it's.... hardware acceleration? Beyond my knowledge.

But my theory is.....if I put windows 7 on my dell 390 dual core, I think I'll work, probably. God forbid I have to actually SPEND MONEY LOL Last resort.

So if you guys read the faq on the new player, they are re-adding all the features the old player had so all the complaints except the "bugs" are irrelevant. Including the post that I made when I was bitching about the full-screen going away when going to next video. when they will be added is another story. but I will say they should have waited until it was out of a pre-alpha stage of development. its good to test these things but they need to give an option for testing the player instead of forcing it on everyone. As long as they add everything that the old player had I will be happy.

They had to rush it out because people were unsubscribing en masse after they announced that they were blowing our subscription money on High Guardian Spice. And adding a simple toggle is apparently too difficult for their one tech person who's developing the thing.

No idea how many devs they have working on the website. But even a simple button to switch between players would still take an hour of time for testing to make sure it works. since you would need to wrap it all into an if statement on toggle press. It can be life-threatening you know! the button might not press!

So the videos either don't load or take a really long time to load. If this is gonna be a thing now I'll just have to use other sources to watch anime.

Can we please have the ability to see the current time of the episode up at all times again? The popup player would also be nice to have back as well.

Is it possible to implement the old player in addition to the new player, so users can choose which one they prefer?

I have uBlock Origin and Malwarebytes browser extension for Chrome and I have to disable (Ads/Clickbait) option from Malwarebytes extension for the new player to show up.

I expect CR doesn't want the extra worry involved with supporting two different players, especially if it involved separate encodes.

They at least seem to be fixing things now. I noticed the other night it appears they fixed the long standing "$" bug in image strings.

I've had Crunchyroll for 5+ years, and am very happy with the new upgrade. My favorite feature would be how it now shows how much of the video has buffered. Great work CR, keep it up

I still can't get it to load on this pc at all . Where the player is suppose to be , it's blank , 'nuttin there . I tried disabling adblock ( uBlock Origin) on here with the same results . It will play on the other pc with same adblocker , but the player doesn't work properly on older titles Miss Machiko for one) . The taskbar controlling the volume & full screen is missing there . It does use a different Windows spyware blocking program (Spybot Anti-spy) , which may be more lenient . I haven't been able to watch any Funimation on my pcs since they changed their website prior to Sony coming aboard , A month after I renewed for a year too ...

Ok , tried with a new/old pc build I just finished . the player works somewhat here . The only titles that are broken for me is Miss Machiko and Nichijo . The loading/taskbar is missing & a buffer circle is on permeant . So no volume adjustment or full screen options . Gintama is not affected , surprisingly (the 4:3 old episodes) .

What browser?
have you tried different browsers?

I got it to go from 0% working to 100% working by modifying the browser.
