Please crunchyroll, kill the 10 point bold outline and grey dropshadow on the subtitles, PLEASE for the love that is holy. ITs insanely distracting and white text with insane black outlines is ruining the baeutifully done backgrounds and animation behind it.


Seriously. The drop shadow is horrific and so distracting. The old subtitle styling was perfectly fine. If you're really looking to change the subtitle styling then style it after actual movie subtitles or something. Just no drop shadows please.

I don't see why people are complaining about the subtitles. I'm not seeing any difference between now and before the new player. They look exactly the same to me. And stopping autoplay? Maybe it's because I binge watch everything, but why would you want to stop the player from going to the next episode? Honest question, really. I can see wanting to stop it if you're going to be gone a while, or maybe if you're running it in the background for some reason, but why not just pause it until you're done doing whatever it is your'e doing? I guess people have to find something to complain about. I've chosen to complain about the player exiting fullscreen when a new episode starts. I've gotten around this by using the Magnifier tool and getting the focus just right, but it's a bit of a p.i.t.a..

Not that I want to, but some people want to stop and read the comments in between each episode, and possibly comment themselves. Not my thing, personally, but lots of people do that.

I used the pop out player a lot, since I like to have the video running on part of my screen, while doing other tasks as well. I'd really appreciate seeing that feature return. Either a pop out player or a full browser (not full screen) view would be great.

The old player worked just fine on my laptops. The new player works just fine on my laptop. Yay?

People are mentioning PS4 issues but it seems like ALL issues related to it are that it takes like 2 hours for the HD encodes to finish so for a two hour period after debut, an episode may look bad... but that's literally the only time in the history of that episode being on CR that it will ever have the SD only option. 2 hours after launch... then it's gone for all eternity and it's perfect HD forever. Seems a small complaint to hang your hat on, but whatever. This happens on PC sometimes too.

There's infinite reasons why someone wouldn't want to immediately watch the next episode. Maybe they have to go to the bathroom. Maybe they want to watch something else. A lot of people have data caps. Maybe they're watching something at night and don't want to burn the cap. Put it like this... basically every player on Earth but the CR one lets you turn off auto-play. There's a reason for this. Most people get it. It's you whose the oddball in this situation.

On Ghostery, WHITELIST/allow "Segment." (Same for No Script if you use that too, but "Trust" Segment if you use No Script, which is the equivalent of whitelisting.) See if that works. Someone mentioned this earlier in the thread and it worked for me.

I'm surprised there are people that still use IE. Not once, but TWICE in a 6 month period my laptop got infected with malware (I have no idea HOW). After that, I was DONE with IE.

(But I'm required to use IE at work which annoys me to no end, but I have no choice in that case. )

Need to add a time stamp to the actual play bar - with the old player it was really easy to skip intros because I knew they were a minute and a half long, and I could just follow the time stamp. Now I have to guess where to click to skip past the intro. I used to hate Funimation because their play bar didn't have a time stamp on it either, then they eventually added one.

I'm missing the advance to the next episode button in the player.

Well just cancelled that premium membership Crunchyroll. You got until Oct 23rd to fix problems mentioned and maybe I'll come back. If not then good riddance. Just going from paying for a crap player to watching with ads on a crap player.

Well, we have another "legacy user" here it's still XP on this vintage 2009 desktop, probably not going to happen but the option for the "old player" would be nice, otherwise I,m stuck with my Ipad, on the other hand this might give me incentive to take in my laptap which is one solid mass of broken drivers & such thanks to Windows 10.

The old one let you change subtitles without refreshing the page and now that's gone. That really sucks. Also, why does it autoplay? I've had moments when I'm typing a comment and it goes to the next episode and there is no button for me to stop it from doing so

I like the new video player, it feels smooth and fast now, I also like how I can now see a loading bar to see how much has loaded

but how about make it so if you have already selected 1080p it should stay on 1080p instead of auto

and bring back how you use to hover over the video time line so I can see what time line I can skip to instead of dragging it

Thanks, that worked!
