I have heard of such programs working on various Youtube videos (using flash, not any HTML5 codecs), but I have not heard of one working in crunchyroll.

Just want to know as one my computers (linux 64-bit) does not have a flash version for it available.

Flash Player 11 is supposed to support 64 bit versions of Linux now.

Native 64-bit support

Flash Player can now take advantage of native support for 64-bit operating systems and 64-bit web browsers on Linux®, Mac OS, and Windows®.

But to answer your question, there is no alternate video player you can use.

Hmm, well my Linux 64-bit is running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, which might be way I didn't see it in my package manager.

Although if anyone knows of a flash alternative player that could work in crunchyroll would be great.

This article may be of help:

If that (or similar solutions one can turn up online) does not work for you, you may have to wait for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin).

It would also help if Crunchyroll would actually implement the Stage API.

I digress, however.

There is an add-on for Firefox called Flash Aid. it will download and install the latest 64bit Linux Flash for you. Just have to let it figure out what you are using and it will generate and execute the script for you. I have used it several times, and its pretty damned easy. It will also enable hardware acceleration for you (again not that crunchyroll supports this on Linux) but its useful for other sites.
