So what does Netflix do? That doesn't need flash installed.

It might be time the makers of this site start thinking about updating the page to use something else.


The problem is that Flash is the easiest and best solution for now since HTML5 in of it self doesn't allow any form of DRM, therefore it doesn't allow CR to protect their files if they start to use HTML5. Yes they can use Google's WebM and similar things in addition to HTML5, but then it would work best on Google's own Chrome browser and crap everywhere else.

The problem with HTML5 is that there's not really a way to protect your content with it, instead what I'd say is that moving over to Microsoft's Silverlight solution might be a better idea. However the problem with that one is that Microsoft have openly stated that it'll kill it off in the next few years due to it not being profitable...


Ew, no, get Silverlight out of here. Let that abomination die.

Why don't you like Silverlight? It's what Netflix used to use before they switched over to their own in house developed streaming solution based on javascript, HTML5 and WebM

Netflix uses their own in house streaming solution based on HTML5, WebM and Javascript. Netflix use of this solutions have hurt them but not in a big scale, since there are a lot of pltforms and services that does allow you to download things like Netflix originals

*Yawn*

So CR is using Flash instead of HTML5 because DRM is easier to implement?

- ShadowPlay
- FRAPS
- Xbox Game DVR

Pick your poison.
There. How is Flash relevant now? Ripping a show is so insanely easy, I don't understand why people even bother with DRM. Even GoG works DRM free and games are much more difficult to crack than movies, so what?

I would much prefer HTML 5, but it doesn't really bother me that much.

I think they use HTML 5, or at least something similar. Not really a technical expert myself to be honest, but let's hope that CrunchyRoll eventually follows the same path!

I'm thinking of ending CR once I finish a certain series due to flash. Skyrim uses less resources than watching CR's videos plus I have Hulu plus.

Youtube uses html5, and the player uses some “mediasource” namespace or whatever for the source of their videos. And you can't exactly download that, as far as I know.

"mediasource:https://www.youtube.com/{some video id}"

So it's a little bit of something to prevent people from straight up downloading a video as a single file. Although I'm sure there are some ways to reconstruct a video file from the parts that are cached on the client.

The html5 subtitle / cc options weren't too great last time I checked, which makes a much bigger impact on crunchyroll's decision. Even if html5 subs were decent, it might be a real headache converting the sub files used for the flash player... dunno just speculation. Just thinking about it, if I were in crunchyroll's position I wouldn't want to announce plans to convert until I knew all the functionality could be preserved.

Not only can I download the video but I can convert into audio with the same function . Plus you can convert whole play lists.

I've backed up a lot of my favorite stuff due to youtube blocking everything.
