Well Amazon allows downloads. They only get a few shows a season at the moment, but I think they're starting to recover from the Anime Strike debacle. I THINK Hidive might also allow it? But I haven't tried them since Sentai sucks with both sub and dub quality.

And there's always the option of keeping your subscription to Crunchyroll and using alternative means regardless. It's not like your views of the episodes are going to have much of an impact on anything.

Wait, how is auto leaving full screen between episodes a feature? I always thought that was a bug in your player. I just didn't mind...

The only beef I have with the new player is how controls are disabled while the player is buffering and that the cursor doesn't hide on idle.

Upon further digging I found out that the player uses a rather old version of VideoJS. What's up with that?

The new player is much better at autoplaying in fullscreen than the old one. The old one would autoplay, then stutter, then stop until I hit escape to go out of fullscreen mode, wait for it to buffer a bit, then start playing before re-entering fullscreen.

However, with the new player, when a new video autoplays, it minimizes out of fullscreen mode.

How do I open a new window with video with new player? I tend to multitask and the ability to resize video to a smaller size on screen was used often, but now that feature is gone?

Okay, so I was one of the 50% that got the new player. I loved it. It played more smoothly for me. Today, I go to watch something, and the old player is back? Why? I like the new one better. It's less glitchy for me.

Regarding Ad-Blockers:

As of right now, the only site scripts I have to allow to get the videos are these 5, based on my Firefox NoScript script blocker:

crunchyroll.com
http://www.crunchyroll.com
vrv.co
https://dl.v.vrv.co
http://cdn.segment.com

If your adblock software treats most site scripts as probable ads, then it might be filtering out these required site scripts.

EDIT: Adding dlvr1.net resolves a buffering problem.

How's the option to turn off autoplay and chormecast functionality going?

In case you guys actually read this, how's the broken chapters in the manga section of the site that have been broken for over a year coming? I've sent in tickets about this.

I noticed that for the Quality Selection it just said Auto with no other choices.

How do I set it manually?
How do I know what resolution it is playing at?


On a side note, I do like how it shows how much it loaded compared to your place to the video

Why is Full Screen exiting with each new episode a thing.. stop that. Or make it an option so those of us who hate it can opt out of.

Thanks for that, I just white listed cdn.segment.com and it seems to work.

From the first post:


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.
