    Eh, you need a VPN to watch anything on Crunchyroll in Germany anyway

    @LotsOfCaffeine sadly yes, and that also goes against CR's TOS.
    I tried location spoofing via VPN and various things, nothing worked.
    Seems like they had the ASN blocked here.

    @Ranchu that's odd, it always worked for me using a VPN to connect to let's say the USA.

    I just made sure to connect first, then open a private window (no cookies) and then log in.

    @LotsOfCaffeine I'll try that.

    @LotsOfCaffeine The app may not work, but browser is working just fine now!
    Thanks a lot!

    Go vrv instead. Full crunchy library, and their techs can't seem to block anything.

    @SortOfTested I'll still have to VPN in as it's unavailable in my region.

    @SortOfTested haven't heard of them before, but their website told me they're not available in Germany.

    Streaming services still suck, don't they?

    I use them in Europe when I'm there. Simple vpn passthrough makes everything fine. Just pop up somewhere in the UK or new York.

    @SortOfTested yeah but needing a VPN to use a service I pay for? idk about that

    I do have a VPN, it wouldn't be a huge deal, but it still annoys me.

    Though, I try to avoid giving streaming services my money as much as possible. Probably gonna cancel spotify too, at some point.

    I have vpn on 24/7, I don't like being tracked, so it's no sweat. There's also torrents, punish failure by exercising your internets.

    @SortOfTested I have my VPN on 24/7 too, at least on my phone. I guess it's more about the general idea behind streaming services.

    They all rely on exclusive licensing, buying each other out without any real competition.

    Also, I can't really remember the last time I touched a torrent.

    I make them constantly, any large files sent at work are via magnet

    @SortOfTested guess it can be a convinient way to transfer files.

    Can't think of many examples, but when something like this comes up for me, I either go for scp if it's from A to B, or I upload it to the NAS if many people need said files.

    We don't really have a San or Nas, were fully cloud. There are times I'll use an s3 bucket, but since we're all on home internet the torrent becomes free.

    @SortOfTested .. cloud, home internet for work..

    foreign concepts to me, I'm more in the embedded area, working with hardware on the occasion.

    See what your responsible government and suppression of idiots gets you? You could he wfh now and wondering how long it will be until your economy collapses and people start killing each other in the street even more.

    I mean if you want I'll trade you two Trump's for a Merkel to get you started.
