Can't watch episodes on chrome for android

Postby mario88 » Wed Nov 25, 2015 11:57 am

Whenever I try to watch an episode from this site on chrome for android it doesn't load and gets stuck with a black screen.
Not a big deal, since I can still watch them with another browser, but I still wanted to let you know. I don't even know whose fault this actually is (chrome? My smartphone? Android 4.4? The site?)

Since you can see them with another browser, and assuming you're using the same phone, then...

Chrome? - could be, but I can see the episodes just fine on my phone with Chrome.

Your smartphone? - no, since you're still using the phone if you can see the episodes on it.

Android 4.4? - no, since you're still using the OS if you can see the episodes on it. I just checked on my tablet, which is on Android 4.4.2, and the episodes work there.

The site? - no, since you're still using the site if you can see the episodes on it.

Bug with the player

Postby kfgg » Sat Nov 28, 2015 10:36 am

Been watching a few episodes on Google Chrome, using a Tablet device running Android.

There's a problem. It plays. Then the first break for a commercial. After the commercial break, it goes right back to the beginning of the episode. I can skip and go to the part that it should have automatically returned to, but I figured I should report this one. Basically it runs the segment, runs into the ads. The ads finish, and instead of resuming to the second segment, etc it starts the episode from the beginning (At the intro)

I hope my description of the problem makes sense.

Jeeze I made a mistake. I just posted what happens to me with Chrome on Android in the Feedback section. I should have checked here first. I apologize.

No prob. Episodes play all the way through for me, but the subs tend to lag, and depending on the screen orientation, can disappear entirely.

Maybe it's a Mobile Chrome thing. The only other place other than the tablet device and the computer I've watched was with Chrome on my iPhone. The show plays fine, but there tends to be blackness when it switches between the ads and the segments. The remedy on the iPhone is to exit full screen and then return to full screen.

I have a similar problem. I watched episodes on chrome for android and now I can' t watch them on either my tablet or phone. I won't work with Samsung browser either. It does work on firefox on my pc, so far.

It says something about error and reload page but it does not work.
