The title says it all. I have an older iPad and the app won't load. Yet the site refuses to show videos to me without the app. Am I just SOL?

I take it you have the original iPad, which can't be upgraded to iOS 6 (which is what the current CR app requires, at minimum).

If that is the case, I am afraid you are indeed out of luck on getting the app to run.


Your only choice would be to find an app that somehow allows you to access Flash videos on an iPad (and one with an older version of iOS). Assuming you have a computer that itself can view CR, this might be one solution:

Yes, I have the original iPad. I was using the Photon browser to be able to watch CR, but it is both slow and clumsy and has the habit of turning off the streaming session about halfway through a typical episode. After spending much of the evening searching for solutions, I can at least make it work; that message I received (the one saying CR won't show my video in the browser) apparently only happens when the Flash session is off.

Thanks for the reply, anyway. At least this taught me a bit about the pad, even if the solution isn't one I'm pleased with.
