Post Reply Crunchyroll App for Linux.
Posted 9/17/14
Hello guys how are you doing hopefully doing good.

Since i left my old house i didnt come back to Crunchyroll untill a few days past this month and i decided to watch some Idol [email protected] or something you know and i continue to get a Flash Player message saying that it needs the plug in.

Now i have tried to install the Flash Player from Ubuntu Software Center but the lousy thing always had fatal errors relating to the install and never once did it work.

So in my own free time i did some research reguarding the issue with Flash and it came to no surprise that Adobe has dropped Linux support with Flash Player.. This boiled my blood to a dangerous level this is just unbeleivable i was around the early Ubuntu days and it had Flash why all the suddon the change of heart?

Its probably the Hollywood guys up to no good as usual destroying the internet with there Digital Restrictions Management garbage.

So i have a suggestion/idea is it possible to get a Crunchyroll App for Linux? you know almost like a Netflix type thing?

I cant watch anything here no matter how much i try, i do have my PS3 but my Linux is the center of my entertainment now.

Have you tried looking for a package named "pepperflashplugin-nonfree"? This uses the Google Chrome version of Flash, and I believe it may only work in Chrome/Chromium browsers, but it should be much more up-to-date than the standard "flashplugin-nonfree" package.

netflix leverages Silverlight, and they are working to move away from that platform. Being that Linux is a desktop OS and not an independent platform, a *nix app will most likely not be in the cards.


There should be a flash version in your non-free repository of your distribution of choice that will give you flash. That should take care of you, just like eyeofpain has laready mentioned.

Im not saying it has to be made with Flash or Silverlight i herd there is a linux version like Silverlight but thats another story.

This is my own opinion, wouldnt it make Crunchyroll more Linux friendly if it had the option to run videos in HTML5? could that happen in the future?

Last I heard, Moonlight still didn't support Silverlight's DRM implementation, which is the primary reason Netflix choose it for their web player.

Flash should work in all common browsers on Ubuntu. I'm using it myself in Firefox (installed separately) and Chrome (Pepperflash included out-of-the-box). However, both pepperflash and the regular 11.2 flash plugin suffer from some image distortion (macroblocks) in certain scenes recently though. Unless they fix that, watching streams will be subpar on Ubuntu.

You should be able to install a flash implementation on any Linux PC.

There is App support for steam link maybe someday that may get supported there as it's linux base then see it on linux fully support.


But you can try Kodi and get the crunchyroll app that someone made from it and I'm not sure if it even works or not under linux if it still need flash.

To be honest, Ubuntu is flashy and difficult to work with, fouling up on the simplest tasks.I've given up on Ubuntu, instead switching to GNU/Debian. If you're having trouble run the install through terminal. Terminal will give better results than the software center any day.

sudo apt-get install --reinstall flashplugin-nonfree
should get the install going.

Otherwise sudo apt-get purge flashplugin-nonfree
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
should do it

Hope this helps.

you could also download the rpm from adobe.com and convert it to a deb file with alien installing it that way.
