Google has introduce today the Google ChromeCast which is

"The easiest way to enjoy online video and music on your TV.Plug Chromecast into any HDTV and control it with your existing smartphone, tablet, or laptop. Send your favorites from Google Play, YouTube, Netflix, and Chrome to your TV with the press of a button. "


At $35, this is a device that not many people are going to pass up. If you add support for it though your Crunchroll App, that would be awesome. More information is down below.

wouldnt it already be supported since you can remotely view desktop chrome and just go to crunchyroll and stream the video through remote chrome? anywho, i support this too.

Do you have one in hand, or did you mean you just ordered it?

Mine doesn't ship until "before August 2", and I'm curious how well it works with Flash video in the Chrome browser (i.e., video from the CR website).

That feature is beta. There are two modes to how this casting works. The one you're talking about with the streaming video through the browser tab is nearly the same as mirroring. Instead of mirroring the whole desktop screen, it's only showing the content of a tab in the Chrome browser. So, the video is going CloudSource(CrunchyRoll) -> PC/Mac Chrome tab -> Chromecast.
The other mode is way more elegant. The mobile device or Chrome browser is only the control mechanism. The video goes directly from the internet video source to the Chromecast. So, CloudSource(CrunchRoll) -> Chromecast. This mode is only enabled if the content provider integrates it.

Crunchyroll, please please integrate the Google Cast API into Crunchyroll!!!!
