    The video host FlashX, that's atleast what the video players say at the top right corner, doesn't work that well for me. Sure, while they technically do play the videos, they just kind of feel broken.

    For example, sometimes if I pause the video, it just resets the video back to the beginging.

    Another example is, it is like it doesn't load if I start it and leave it. It also frequently shows that blue loading symbol in the middle of the player.

    This all kind of ruins an anime when you try to watch it on it.

    They all seems like pretty minor inconveniences. I've watched a few things via FlashX and have never encountered any of these problems.

    The video resetting is a bug on their end and is tolerable considering if it happens you can always skip back to where you last were. Again, I've never seen nor heard anyone else having this problem.

    The loading issue sees like a connection problem on your end.

    The blue circle dissapears if you pause and play again and this isn't something connected to flashx it's a universal problem with flash, it also happens on youtube. It does sound like your browser doesn't like flash or might have some conflicts with flash. Probably too many plugins maybe or something else. I do not have any of these problems with flashx so it's unique to your browser. Have you tried using another browser?

    Could be that he's using an out-of-date version. I've experienced something similar a few times and it wasn't exclusive to one host, nothing a browser restart couldn't fix after checking for updates (especially if the browser provides it's own flash plugin by default). As for the other problems he's having, I can't say I use FlashX. I've not watched anything on the site in a few months. I've been sticking to Netflix recently or playing one of several PC games on my free time.

    *Bump/Update*
    I'm not sure if this is just me or if this is problem with FlashX's player, but it's extremely difficult to get the player to actually go full screen outside of the iframe. Another video host does this too, called UserCloud. I have tried in Google Chrome and FireFox and the video players just don't cooperate at all, they both go full screen in the iframe, but rarely does it ever go full screen outside of that iframe. With UserCloud, I can at least right-click below the video player and open the frame in a new tab and then play the video in full screen, but FlashX is the worst one to fight with as it's all about how lucky you can be in getting it to go full screen outside the iframe. It might be a minor issue, but it is certainly going to be a problem for anyone who likes watching videos in true full screen as if it were TV.

    Flashx recently updated their player so their embeds have changed. For instance the ones we originally have on the site have to have an allowfullscreen=true into the embed to work now. 1,182 anime is quite difficult to go back through and add that into the embed to every single anime episode that uses Flashx. As you said it is very minor and as such anyone who has reported a certain anime episode, in our broken video section, with a full screen issue I have taken the time to fix the embed because they are obviously watching that anime at that moment. As for usercloud that always has had that issue and no real fix for that unfortunately.

    For Flashx when you hit play, go to the top left corner of the player. There's a "share video" option, click that and you'll see "video link". Copy and paste that url, it will take you to the video on the Flashx website from there you should be able to go full screen. A pain but it's a work around if you really want full screen.

    If you're on PC you can just double click the player and that will fullscreen the video. Sadly, that is a lot of fixes. But we could always go through stevey's flashx account and see what he has. Do you also use Flashx? I think the only other person who does is Dirtie but he doesn't have a whole lot on there.

    Actually the double-click didn't work for me because it only expanded inside the iframe.

    Alright, like I said I wasn't sure if it was just me or not. Since the videos did work, I didn't really want to report them as broken. Thanks for the information about FlashX.

    For FlashX, I found that I can just right-click on the video player (when it has that big blue play button) and I can open the frame in a new tab in FireFox (This Frame -> Open Frame in New Tab). So the share link isn't necessary when using FireFox. I found this one last night after I had posted.
    For Chrome, right-clicking on the blue play button will allow you to open in a new tab (or window if you prefer), as long as you right-click when you have the hand cursor (default cursor for a link).
    I recently discovered the tip for Chrome myself today, so there's that if no one else knew about it.

    Hope this helps anyone else that's having issues with the player going full screen (for now).

    If you're using adblock you will have those issues. Tested in chrome with adblock on experienced those issues. Tested with adblock off it works just fine. Zero issues...also cookies should be enabled for the site. (in my opinion) <Update

    The issue I run into with any flashx.tv video is that the video will start fine then a few minutes in the video itself will freeze but the sound continues on. Only does this with FlashX as the host. No issues with any other.
