Premium membership canceled. Time to move on. Perhaps I'll come back if things change.

I've changed to Linux, and Crunchyroll is the only service that insists on Flash. Netflix works great through Chrome and Youtube HTML5 works as well. And I've been planning to ditch flash a long time.

I'll probably stay around CR a little while yet, but as soon as I get tired of using my phone for manga and anime I will be gone.

Sadly, because CR is one of very few networks available in my area, this probably means digging up my eye-patch again...

I'm a GNU/linux user, flash is buggy even in Google Chrome. So let's try it like this:

Dear CR team,
Please understand that watching video on my phone is not exactly the most pleasing experience and that I am not going to switch OS just because of you. So, I hereby promise to subscribe to premium when the HTML5 option will be available. Also, if you ever try to move to Silverlight I will definitely stop visiting altogether.
Please keep up the good work and continue making this site the best resource around for anime fans.

Still trying to figure out how HTML5 can make a Crunchyroll stream faster... Does it bend time & space?


As a web developer myself, all I can say is, it won't. It will, at the moment, make CR run slower, for reasons I won't get into. I fully support HTML5, as well, but it's not ready yet.

While this is just my opinion, I'd rather take a slower loading site/player than the buggy unpredictable-ness of Fecal Player.

Ya, even the program to create flash items is no longer available. As a web developer this is great news, html5 is pretty awesome, and less buggy than flash. Hopefully this means HTML5 will be here soon. I also will not rejoin premium until I do not need to depend on flash - even funimation has html5.

As a web developer I can tell you all, it can be done. It is a technical challenge.... not sure how they can program a safe way of handling it.... but, when there's a will, there's a way.

I use google chrome on a desktop running windows and I just checked hulu and funimation and they still use flash.

To test as I did, with google chrome, you disable the flash plugin embedded in the browser by going to the following address:
chrome://plugins
Once there click "disable". Flash will not run in chrome for you flash is dead now. Hit funimation.com and find any show they got. They show a blank space where the player should be. Then visit hulu.com, any show you want. They show a message saying it requires flash player v11.x or higher.

Maybe some shows and some platforms are using the html5 solution, but it doesn't seem they are doing it for desktop platforms. For now it seems companies are sticking to flash until it dies for good....

Funimation depends on the browser you are using....Their HTML5 only works in safari on Mac... for now. In their post it mentioned HLS...later in the thread, it mentioned they are working on MS Edge: http://www.funimation.com/forum/showthread.php?7984-Flash-to-HTML5&p=62263&viewfull=1#post62263.

I don't even have the Flash plug-in on any of my computers, due to the constant day-0 threats Flash gets. Crunchyroll is the only site I commonly use that doesn't support HTML5 video, which is disappointing, but the sheer number of clients on other devices (e.g., my iPhone, PlayStation Vita, PlayStation TV, PS4, PS3, iPad, etc.) makes up for it.

I don't care.
