My computer is a little slow, so videos from 1080p are a bit glitchy. Is there a way to make the videos always start from 480p without me having to press the button in between episodes ?

You can change your default video resolution in your Video Preferences: https://www.crunchyroll.com/acct/?action=video

You need to set it a couple times before it'll stick. So, set it to SD first. Let it save that (couple seconds). Then set it to 480P. That will be your default video setting whenever you watch a show (every episode) from now on.

Yes there is. In the Settings page, in the Video Preferences, there is an option to set the default quality of the video.

It is funny, when I went to https://www.crunchyroll.com/acct/?action=video. The list below is the only thing showing for set up. Nothing on changing the bit rate. Usually watch in 360.


Video Preferences
Mature Content Filter: Show mature content

Default Language: English

Default Full Screen Hardware Acceleration: Disabled.

Click the gear in the lower right of the player, then click the word "Auto" to select resolution. Unfortunately, you have to do that every time. Don't know if they will make it savable later, but lots of people want that back again, so one would hope so...
