Yeah, I don't think it'd be Java problems at this point either. I got the latest dubbed eps watched, along with the latest Motto To Loveru, and although my laptop (which runs Windows Vista) still has lag problems with HD (I've had constant varying lag problems with HD on it for years, so no big surprise there), and yes it is worse when I move the mouse over the player during playback, both in and out of full screen mode, my desktop (which runs Ubuntu Linux) ran the Motto To Loveru ep in HD without a single problem, just like before the Flash Player update. The two computers really show case the differences between using Windows and Linux though, as my desktop has the lower grade vid card and less vid RAM (although both of them have integrated vid cards that have to borrow processor cycles from their CPU, and both of them have 2.0 GHz dual-core AMD processors), which goes to show that the noticeably lower amount of system resources Linux uses does make an appreciable difference in the end.
I still think that that Flash Player update still triggered the problems, as the only problem I ever had before it was most eps taking longer than normal to load (which was a relatively, in regards to how long I've been subscribing, recent development), which now seems to be gone (the eps can actually manage to start playing now before I get them in full screen and the HD turned on, haven't seen that reliably happen for a few months), and if I paused the player for over a certain amount of time at some point during the ep it'd start buffering, refuse to finish, and if I clicked to go to a different spot in the ep, or to exit HD, I'd get the error "The application rejected the connection." forcing me to reload the page. Since the second only occurred if I paused for over a certain amount of time (and I'm not sure how long) I have no idea when I might see it again (as I usually only paused long enough to see that when watching the dubbed eps, not the subbed ones as they get my full attention so I can keep up with the subs). It might be possible that the problems I'd been having might've had something to do with the Amazon server problems, particularly as everything seems to be working just fine for me now and they were supposed to start around the time the problems I was having started, but otherwise everything seems to be fine now.
@The Coffee God: There are other languages used with webpage design other than Java that make dynamic webpages practical to create and use. I just mentioned Java because it seems to get a lot of rather frequent updates (or at least the Java console does), and according to the earlier posts there were problems with the pages even loading correctly over the weekend, which implies some of the problems are with whichever language they are using for the dynamic pages. Although, with the addition of more Amazon host servers clearing up a lot of the lag issues that we've been having it makes me wonder if it is utilizing a continuous feedback system while streaming, which could induce lag problems with playback when moving the mouse (as it triggers an increase in the data back flow) by overworking the connection and/or servers. Just a thought to through out there, and one that now kinda makes me glad that my Linux box does a better job of running the HD videos, as I use it for the majority of the shows I watch here.

I agree that not all ie users are having the same problems.I'm using Vista,IE8,Charter 18meg and had the same player issues others had. I'm getting a new error (AMAZON SERVER NOT FOUND).Happens loading Samurai Girls ep.11 & 12,Towono Guon ep.2 & up.Select episode again & it plays correctly at least dubbed episodes are affected.When multiple problems occur isolating the problem becomes more difficult.Murphy'Law strikes again!
Amazon had several servers that went off line due to the storms in the Mid-Atlantic. I know TAN had some of their servers affected as a result and had to bring servers online at other locations. Even with most of the servers back up and running, it can take time to reload and reprogram the information, as well as direct links. I wouldn't be surprised if that is causing some of the "server not found" issues. Netflix was even knocked off line for a while by the outage and they still have some streams that don't work properly.

Upotte episode 9 appears to be a victim of the power outage (assuming it happened today, too lazy to look up about the storms.)
 Of course it had to work just seconds after I posted this... The other issue I reported about Koihime+Muso Ep 1 still stands (not even a player shows up, or the language selector on the side of the page that shows up even with one language to choose from)
Hey gang - We are still sorting out the server issues. If you get a player that seems to be having issues, try refreshing the page. If you are a registered or premium user and that doesn't work, log out and then log back in. That should force your session to switch to another content server.
That's why miquelfire couldn't watch Upotte ep 9 at first, but when they went back, it worked just fine.
If anyone continues to get a "content not found" or "can't connect to Amazon" error after trying the above, please post the show title/ep #/lang (if there's a choice) and if you get that error on SD/HD/Both. That way I can check to make sure that the content is on the servers.

I am a Premium User... It seems like I didn't have this problem when I was a free user. It's not a huge problem since I can still watch the shows, but it's kind of irritating.
