There have been some reports of people getting buffering instead of commercials (i.e. the commercial never plays, but the break is still present in the stream). I wonder if that's what you're seeing...
That is definitely what I've been seeing. Interruptions every 10 minutes or so. Sometimes its a commercial, sometimes part of a commercial and sometimes just a reload with no commercial
My AT&T DSL has been degrading over the last few years and now speedtests at 2.6 max and as low as 2.2 during peak hours. I keep the debugging screen on and I notice that Crackle is about the only channel that doesn't display it when they buffer. I believe the post about Crackle not using lower quality streams may be the case. I have few problems with Netflix and Amazon. Their 1.5 and 1.3 streams usually work fine.
Nice channel, beautiful picture, but not good for much on my struggling internet connection for anything I really want to pay attention to.
