It looks like the CR embeds were fixed a little while ago. I also did some cleanup of the hulu embeds to fix the problem (with Shakugan no Shana and others) where different seasons were "merged" as a single series on ANN. So everything should be good with the videos now.

Yeah, it doesn't really. Unless the post is the opening post for a thread, the subject line pretty much gets lost. Although, when replying in a thread, if you look at the "Topic review" underneath the text editor, post subjects actually do show in there, but they do not in the standard thread view.

I moved the thank you down in to your actual post for ya.

I hope this is the right place to ask, if not sorry Razz
I recently began watching Girls und Panzer on CrunchyRoll, but they wanted paid membership past a certain episode so I signed up here. The only problem is every single episode when I want to watch it just comes up with a blank grey screen, except for one time where a brief message about Flash Player flicked onto the screen for an instant. I'm in New Zealand, so could it be an issue of location?

Two questions:

1) Do you have the same problem when watching from Crunchyroll.com ?
2) Is your Flash Player up-to-date ? (check here: http://www.adobe.com/​software/​flash/​about/​ )

Hi,

I can't watch any full episodes of Polar Bear Cafe because in the player only a 2 minutes version is loaded. I tried loading episodes from other animes and it works without problems. Tried on both Chrome and Firefox, without AdBlock, cleaned temporary files..nothing.
Any suggestions?

Thank you

Are you able to watch it on Crunchyroll where you are? I recall there used to be bug where if you accessed a title unavailable in your area via Google's cache it would let you watch the first couple of minutes for some reason.

Only two minutes also on Crunchyroll (for Polar Bear Cafe), but there it says
Quote:
This video requires a Premium Membership to watch in your region.
so I guess this is the underlying reason for ANN also. I guess I will have to find another way to see this series. Any tips are more then welcomed. Thanks for your help.

If you had a premium account on Crunchyroll you should be able to watch the videos here if you are already logged into at the Crunchyroll end - at least that's the way it used to work when it was first introduced here; I always watch them directly on the crunchyroll site since the embeds are lower resolution.

There have been titles that were premium-only in the UK - it's harder to source ads outside the US and you get less impressions so sometimes the only way to get the licensor to agree to a region is to go prem only. Rob explained it on Twitter back when he was with Crunchy, but it's lost in the mists of time now - closest I can come up with is this.
