Why can't they just use the code from VRV which actually supports turning off subtitles and changing language?

The new players been driving me nuts. Freezing video, keep reloading, keeps freezing. Video plays with the loading circle in center through entire ep and not able to resize or access any controls. Been living with it but its pretty bad. Watching on my iPhone is actually better, but watching on tiny screen isn't as good. Cmon!
Trying to watch latest ep of Bunnygirl senpai and I've hit reload 8 times already.

It seems specific to titles, bandwith problems? I can watch some other shows fine, but a certain show will keep giving problems. I just tried this morning, that ep is still freezing.

I'm finding that it takes way to long to watch one single episode due to buffering and I'am getting quite annoyed with the service I have been paying for. hopefully it improves soon as I don't like to haft to spend an hour of my time viewing 20 minutes of an episode.

Is there any update on whether or not they will ever make One Piece watchable again. I can't turn off subtitles and I can't change them to English. Does anyone know a solution to this?

If you live in the US, use CR on VRV. If not, CR needs to fix their shit or at least give us an update about fixing their player

As a former subscriber (former for the reasons I am about to state), how about you up the video quality of your videos? We are closing in on 2019 and I'm sure I'm not the only subscriber who watches anime on a big screen 4k tv (75 inch qled). While I understand anime is capped at 1080P, your 1080P bitrate is noticeably lower than your competitors and looks grainy AF on anything larger than my 27 inch 1080P computer screen.... It is so easy to hit the higher bitrate button...

What's with all the overlapping subtitles ... Currently have Spanish and English showing at the same time, making it very hard to read.

When's this going to be sorted?

Need to report some issues with the Web player on Chrome.

The player always leaves full screen each time a new episode starts, making the auto-play useless.

Everything else works fine.

That's listed as a "feature" here, and people are mad.

Well that was always a "feature" like you quoted since the beginning, heck if I remember correctly since the Flash based player.

So I don't think they'll change it anytime soon.

Hope they will add the more precise controls and miniatures soon but I'm just grateful they have been working on it.. I didn't have much hope on a new HTML5 player. Cause they have been so behind the wave and flash was so pervasive in the site I was really worried crunchy would never improve to a new tech

2) For me, VRV's web player remains in fullscreen while binging, so Ellation doesn't even seem to have a consistent idea of what they think people want. (If asked, I'd say what people want most is, as usual, the ability to set exactly what will happen when an episode ends.)

1) Not according to reactions like these:

Why on earth would you think its a feature to send the next episode out of fullscreen? This is probably one of the most stupid and annoying steaming ideas i've encountered since streaming was viable. Did people really want this? What is wrong with them?

* Fullscreen mode will exit when switching between episodes.

How is this a feature? Why would I want it to exit fullscreen? If I am watching back to back episodes it is extremely annoying to have to switch back to full screen. Especially in my case watching on my living room tv. I have to find the wireless keyboard and scroll down on the page to reach the video controls.

Please please PLEASE do NOT escape fullscreen when switching between episodes!!! It is INCREDIBLY inconvenient when I'm binge-watching all the episodes! If this continues, I will no longer be subscribed to Crunchyroll. I've been paying for Crunchyroll for YEARS and this will be the straw that breaks the camels back. I absolutely hate this. I hook my computer up to a tv, or set it up on my table and sit back on my bed or couch to watch. And NOW I have to get up EVERY episode to make it fullscreen just so I can read the subtitles. (I have really poor vision and do not want to wear my glasses when lounging at home. And I can't even find my wireless mouse so I can fullscreen it without getting up.) Like, WHO even wanted this to be an option?!? Just hit escape! Or exit fullscreen! For these Crunchyroll episodes that are 3 minutes, 6 minutes, or 10 minutes long, this gets really REALLY annoying.

Obviously, I'm going to come across poorly because I'm highly irritated. I thought it was a problem with my sister's computer, drove all the way home to get my laptop only to drive all the way back and experience the exact same problem. What the hell. Come on Crunchyroll. Don't make me go elsewhere because I will. And I really like my Crunchyroll. :(

Yeah! I can finally turn off the subtitle to take screenshot.
