Anime Network Online Player: Not Quite Ready

Posted by Michael Pinto on Nov 30, 2007 in Animation |

I watched the above video clip and raced to the Anime Network website, and man was I let down! I’m what you call a pre-sold audience, I’m an anime fanboy and I love watching stuff on my computer. Well I launched their player, it started up a bit slow but so far so good. Next it played a commercial, now I’m willing to watch a bit of advertising before the show (that’s what pays the bills!) but the commercial skipped and jumped and timed out. It was for a horror film too, so I wanted to watch it but I couldn’t make out what was going on.

Next the Anime I wanted to watch started to load up – and load up – and load up – and then it crashed my browser! Nope it’s not me, I watch video all the time on YouTube, DailyMotion, and even CNN (which plays well enough that I don’t mind the commercials) and I have a broadband connection too, but the Anime Network Online Player just doesn’t like my computer. I hope Anime Network can fix the tech side of things because the service looks interesting (and would be worth a second try).
