I've been noticing that with the videos that are loaded progressively from cachefly (e.g. Itsuka Tenma), if you let it play to the end of the video the player flushes the buffer and starts loading it again from the beginning which seems wasteful.

R-15 episode 1 won't play to the end in 720p. It is 24:25 long but stops mid-song at 23:15
I switched to 360 and got the end of the end and the preview, although most of the subtitles were missing from the preview... yes, as with here the final <caption> is out of order. It's displayed for nearly 15 seconds and it looks to have been inserted in order of where it ends, rather than where it begins.

Hello!
I hope I'm posting in the correct place for this, apologies if not!

Deadman Wonderland Episode 4 doesn't seem to be loading at all for me. All of the others have worked fine so far, and I haven't had any particular issues with other videos on the site so I don't think it's my settings or anything.

When I go to load the video, the icon flashes constantly in the top right hand corner. I can't change any settings or anything on it, and pressing the 'play' icon does nothing at all.

Any ideas what the issue might be, and is anyone else experiencing the same problems?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give! Smile

Well. it worked when I watched it previously, although I can't check it at the moment. Have you tried one of the other resolutions?

--edit--

Looks like the video host has now been changed to cachefly but the files have not been uploaded there - all resolutions are 404ing.

360p is missing for all the other episodes I've just checked too (although they have 480 and 720)

It wouldn't even let me try to other resolutions, unfortunately. The other episodes seem to be fine, I just didn't want to skip an episode. Smile

I emailed Ailsa and she's going to get it looked at.

I think I am having a similar problem, but I don't know a lot about computers, so I'm not entirely sure.

I have been trying to watch the first episode of Gintama, but the screen is blank. I'm pretty sure the page is fully loaded, because the commercials play through completely without a problem.

Just because I was curious, I tried to the latest episode of the same series and the screen is also blank. Do I need to sign up for something to see the videos? Maybe I have done something wrong or have not completed a required step? I'm not sure.

Gintama is an embed, and not directly controlled by us. (I forget right now if it's CR or Hulu, though.) Please let them know, as there's nothing I can do.

I've tried a few of those things.. from disabling firewalls and my antiviruss.. disabled adblocker and no scripts even tried a different Browser.. .. and its still not working..

I don't understand it.. I have my flash and shockwave fully upgraded and up to date... firefox is up to date..

I've done the tracert flash.edgecastcdn.net thingy and it goes through fine.. theres no major lag..

pings are low too and i don't get packet losses..

I even went as so far as to registering with crunchyroll.com and got an account there to see if that would fix my problem.. I don't get it.

I can watch videos on their site but through your site I can't watch them.. im trying to watch this

animenewsnetwork.com/video/1946/#play-1

I tried other episodes too and other anime.. and im still getting nothing..

Firefox is 7.0.1

can anyone help.. ? All I see is a black blank screen.... nothing happens..

It appears as though our Crunchyroll embeds are not working! Please try some other series, the ones from Hulu should still work.

Forget about the Edgecast traceroute. We haven't used Edgecast in years, and no longer host our own videos at all for the US/CAN market -- everything's just an embed from either Hulu or Crunchyroll.

I'll look into this tomorrow.

Hi. Sorry, I've got another issue. jsevakis helped me out last time.「これはゾンビですか?」(Is This a Zombie?) has two encyclopedia entries - one for the first season, and one for the second season (「これはゾンビですか?」(Is This a Zombie?), and「これはゾンビですか?オブ・ザ・デッド」(Is This a Zombie? Of the Dead).

In Season One's entry, the "watch it now" button leads to the second season's videos, and the first season's videos are nowhere to be found.

Plus side - I had no idea there even was a second season. Last I heard season 1 was dropped from Crunchyroll.

I was told that I should post this here instead of in the encyclopedia section.
There is a problem with the Shakugan no Shana encyclopedia entry #5943. There is a watch it now link which takes you to episodes of Shakugan no Shana III final. You need to move that link to the Shakugan no Shana III page.

I just tried to watch Asura Cryin', a series new to me, and it just won't play. It's a Crunchyroll series. Another show, via Hulu, worked OK. Asura Cryin' is available directly at Crunchyroll.
