I remember that back then, you were allowed to put music onto your profile, as long as you had the embeded code for it. Thanks!

No, that feature has been removed.

A "Support Manager" on CR had stated in the past that it is not a priority to find a replacement player.

Apologies, this has not been very high on my list of priorities. I'm still working on it.

It was once a promised benefit of becoming a CR premium member but that has also been removed instead.

There was a crack down on-line music so that was part of the problem. However, the site that CR was using still allows its player to be embedded but I'm not sure of their rules and terms.

The music industry cracked down on Spotify (I think that was where it came from) so that you couldn't specify your own playlist any longer, it went to some kind of random play model like other internet radio sites. After that the embed codes on CR stopped working. It wasn't anything to do with CR itself, Spotify had to disable whatever they had in place. I'm pretty sure CR won't find a (legal) substitute exact equivalent, either, because they way Spotify used to work, you could listen to whatever you chose whenever you wanted to, thus there was no reason for anyone to ever purchase the music, and that upset the music industry for some odd reason. And CR wouldn't be able to host your own mp3s, even if you purchased them, to play them from the site, because then CR would be (re)streaming them without the appropriate licensing to anyone else that listened to them...

Maybe someday they might think about trying to embed a "station" link from Pandora or something, but I'm pretty sure it won't ever be like before. In any case this is probably not too high on their priority list right now.

Standard disclaimer, I don't work for CR, and I don't speak for them, either, these are just my own guesses at what happened and why.

Thanks. I don't like how the music industry is treating this, especially wmg.

Off topic but, how come everytime I try to post a new topic by clicking on "new topic", it brings me to a page saying "404 error not found", and at the top, it says, "forums locked"? I have more than 500 cr points.

Ah! Is that why this topic was created as a poll (even though there was no poll)? I've seen that happen a few times but assumed folks were just accidentally clicking the wrong button.

I suggest using the Contact Us link to report this--and give a step by step description of exactly what you are doing (starting from which page) when this happens. Does it happen right away when you click "New Topic" or only after you have filled everything out and then click "Post New Topic"?

Are you starting in the right place? That is, you have to be at the lowest sub-forum level.. You can't start a new thread directly from Help, but you can post from Help -> suggestions/feedback.

You can respond to a post from Help but a new thread needs to start after navigating to one of the sub-classifications instead.

Site Support
Suggestions
Store
Manga
Roku
etc..

so that it goes in the appropriate place.

Same with "Entertainment" you have to go to one of these:
Anime
Manga
Movies
Drama
etc.

first.

Ya, I wasn't doing it on purpose. Its cause I keep getting 404 errors for some reason.

It starts right after I click on "new topic".

Well, the "new topic" button seems to only work whenever I click on it inside an existing thread. It was like that for most of the other sections of the forums.

So, try when you are at one of these links. Does it still give you 404 from there?

So, here's the difference. When you click this:

you go here:

And you can't start a new thread there, but you can see a summary page of all the latest posts for all the help categories mixed together, sorted with the most recent activity at the top. You can only respond to the existing threads there.


But when you click this instead:

you expand the categories:

and then further clicking one of the links in the circle, you can go here:
And that's where you can start a new thread.

Oh I see. Thanks!
