Embedding a Playlist Music Player
Thank you Beardfist for this write up!
Here is what you need to embed a player:
<param name="flashvars" value="config=http://www.playlist.com/config_black_noautostart.xml&mywidth=470&myheight=375&playlist_url=http://www.playlist.com/ext/playlist/pl.php?playlist=#######&t=1360187006386&wid=os">
<embed src="http://www.profileplaylist.net/mc/mp3player_new.swf" />
The number is still the playlist number divided by 256.
As far as colors go, these are the ones listed on the site Black, Grey, Red, Green, Blue, Pink, and Purple.
Playlist.com has added a feature to use an Old Style embed code, but it does not work properly without modification, so I would just stick with this method.
If you are still having trouble, feel free to message me, or you can install my Chrome extension which now converts the embed code for you.
We no longer officially support Boxee Box.
From the prior thread...
Having issues with your Boxee Box?
You might need to reauthorize the app.
This can be done by clearing the browser cookies (which will reset every other HTML5 app as well).
OR deactivate the device, then enter the new authorization code here.
CR does not censor any anime on its side. All streams you see available here are provided that way from the publishers that they have licenses with. CR pays a fee for as long as the stream is available to see, but doesn't get to control its contents. That's why some anime are censored with black blobs, others with streams of white light, and some have no censoring at all.
Occasionally, certain shows such as TERRAFORMARS will grant limited rights to show uncensored versions of a normally censored show. These limited releases are similar to limited OVA streaming availability for shows like Oreimo - that is, the contract is negotiated, the streaming rights are paid for, and they are for a limited timeframe.
Usually this is so the publishers can also sell physical copies (DVD/BD) of the uncensored versions, so even limited uncensored streaming is quite rare.
Unfortunately, OP/ED songs are often not covered by normal streaming subtitle licenses.
This is partly because the music companies hold rights to the songs, and showing subtitles for them would require extra payments per streaming license.
In a somewhat parallel form - for movies, it's similar to how Disney currently owns Marvel.. and yet they can't make movies using the X-Men because 20th Century Fox purchased those rights for a while, and Sony has Spider-Man. But they can (and do) make movies and TV shows about a variety of other Marvel-universe characters. And they could attempt to buy back the rights for specific characters, or even the entire group via new license agreements, but that would be prohibitively expensive.
In CR's case, that would be separate licenses for each song (per season, in some cases) of each anime, which would quickly add up.
TIME TO WATCH A LOT OF ANIME~!
