Funimation is a video-streaming service specifically for Anime cartoons users can utilize with Google Chrome. However, video and log-in issues can arise for Funimation users.
When the Funimation app is not working, users can’t log in to their accounts or selected videos don’t play for them.
Why does Funimation say video not available?
Funimation playback issues can arise due to conflicting extensions or corrupted browser data. Certain browser settings might also be blocking playback when videos don’t play.
Why can’t I log into Funimation?
Funimation login issues are often due to users not entering the right login details. So, double-check your log-in details first. Also, note that users who have registered with Funimation via Facebook need to select the Sign in with Facebook option.
Funimation unable to connect issues can be due to server outages. Open the Downdetector page for Funimation to check if there’s a general server issue. If so, you might need to wait a day or two until the server outage is resolved.
Log in issues can also arise for Funimation users who utilize VPNs. If you utilize VPN software, disable the VPN you’re connected with. Then try logging in to Funimation with the VPN disabled.
