Flash player rule the galaxy for a long, long time...

Who lied to you and said that HTML5 was the future?

Possibly it is because the DRM used in flash player...

The biggest (in my opinion) thing stopping CR from switching to HTML 5 is the lack of built in DRM streaming support

The content providers (the anime studios) want DRM to help protect their assets. The W3C does not want DRM in the web standard because DRM goes against the idea of an "open" internet. The EFF (the organization that sets the standard) is still trying to figure out of they should add DRM capabilities to HTML 5 or not.

Until then, CR has to stick with flash so that they can still make deals with the anime studios.

Thanks for the insights. I was a little worried because many websites I stream videos with no longer use flash. I only realized this change since I switched to an android 4.1.2 jelly bean phone where flash is no longer supported and I could still play many videos straight from web browser.

I am not worried for adobe's future on android flash since I don't watch videos on phone, I am just worried that nowadays the sites that used to stream with flash now streams with HTML5... adding to the recent adobe confession on supporting HTML5 for mobile browsing and stop supporting android OS, will soon migrate to the computer sector... Just want a heads up from crunchyroll when that happens...

It will happen, eventually.....

Even Netflix is facing the same kinds of problems that CR is facing when it comes to switching to HTML 5. Netflix wants to use HTML 5, but because HTML 5 still lacks certain features that are required to stream the Netflix content, they have to stick with Silverlight.
