Ok, I know this is been here already few times but you need to put HTML5 player to use already. I don't even understand why you don't have put it together.

- Chromium (Chrome and Opera) will start requiring to user confirmation every time browser is restarted to run flash https://www.chromium.org/flash-roadmap#TOC-Non-Persisted-HTML5-by-Default-Target:-Chrome-68---July-2018-

- Mozilla Firefox also goes for same road https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Plugins/Roadmap

I don't really see anymore point even use Flash except laziness and/or you don't just care about your customers.
Well if you don't have HTML5 support before browsers starts to forget flash settings, I will stop using CR, and I don't think I'm only one dropping CR then, why? Because it will be less hassle to use "pirated" or other streaming services.

There is already a HTML5 player which is in beta, but only available for Premium+ members. When I tried it out, it actually wasn't even working at the time, and from what I've heard, nothing has changed since they put it in beta.

I can assure you, they will be waiting to the very last minute before releasing a HTML5 player.

I have also read in other forums, something that might happen is that CR will change to a clone website of VRV, but for CRs content only obviously, because that website seems to be getting more support than here.

As for now, there is a couple of chrome extensions which change the player to HTML5:
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/cr-hls-player/aeajdeepnjjdekpbicjhfldagkjndjid?hl=en-US (have used before and works great for the most part)
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/crunchyroll-html5/ihegfgnkffeibpmnajnoiemkcmlbmhmi?hl=en-US (a new one I found while searching for the other one again)

One thing to keep in mind, with these players, you can't change the subtitles or disable them.

Didn't Ellation basically cut all development to CR a few years ago and reallocate most resources to develop VRV? If that's the case, then a VRV clone is practically the guaranteed route. Unless, of course, someone who actually cares buys out CR from Otter Media and uses their sway to drastically change the executive management.
