just wondering, because i've been pondering whether to buy one or not, basically what I want to know is can you watch anime in the tablets browser from sites such as animecrazy, animefreak etc. Just like how you would do from a PC or a laptop.
By the way i'm not looking for anime apps. (just lettin you know:)
Do tablets have flash? and even my cell phone can watch anime, I believe there are mobile anime sites. I would be surprised if a tablet can't play anime, but then again it probably depends on the video player.
Go to best buy and try one out by going to animecrazy, then you will get your answer, try to find an episode with all of the main mirrors.
Sure is, there's many good players. Other issue is space... since tablets don't hold much space and a serie can quickly take up tot 5+ gb. But you can play pretty much any format I wouldn't advice playing blu-ray/FLAC with 800MB+ per episode it would probably get lag issues.
Not sure about android, but Goodplayer on ipad does a good job, you can swipe horizontal or vertical to trigger subs and audio english/japanese. 720p plays fine it starts having some issues with 1080p and blu-ray files though usually more than 350MB+. If I want to watch an anime I would recommend AVI xdiv versions, it's pointless downloading huge MKV files, because they hog too much space and are an overkill for tablet resolution.
Ukko said: Unfortunately, CrunchyRoll requires subscription for most part.
You only need subscription for viewing anime that had just been released that week, so for the most part, subscription isn't pertinent.
Anyway, there is a two-week trial period for Crunchyroll so might as well give it a shot. Also, there's always persuading your mom/dad once to use their credit card. After that, Crunchyroll automatically siphons $6/month so unwary parents will take a while to realize it xD If you've got the balls, try the latter option LOL.
Crunchyroll very nicely so, and Netflix additionally. All the anime you are likely to need on the move.
As with all these devices of course, they use very light reflective glass and thus watching in the middle of a park in the sunlight is going to be impossible. Watching in a store will require you aim it away from lighting so you don't end up with effectively a mirror reflection.
These devices (well Android at least) can also 'talk' to your computer, so anything your computer can do, it can display. Which means sitting in a chair more comfortably, or in bed and let your PC do all the work.
It's a shame my Asus tablet seems to lack the software to identify flv file type.
While not technically anime, currently I am a big fan of Hatsune Miku.
At least I can go see her in concert.
YouTube and all html5 players should work fine. Flash player will need some tinkering.
Personally I just use the utorrent app and play videos via MxPlayer. Haven't had any problems with dual audio or subtitles.
