Not via the website. The apps are pretty good though if you've got a supported device. See here for for a list: /devices

There are two ways:

1. Use a device, not a PC.

2. If viewing via a PC, use an app that utilizes one of the app streams, such as the third-party plug-in for Crunchyroll for Plex. The drawback there is you have no support from CR if there are any problems, and it isn't the most straightforward method.


If you don't want to use Flash any more, I'm assuming you never view Hulu, or at least never view in on a PC, as they also still use Flash for their web player (and like CR, haven't outlined any plans for moving away from it).

It honestly would be a good idea to move away from Flash now that Adobe has insisted people move away from it in favor of other platforms (very heavily hinted to be HTML5 now that the board approved use of third party DRM within the media players.) Too many security flaws, a new one practically the second there's a release of new a version. That, on top of...man, how many cons are there to Flash now? It's technology from the late 90s that outlived itself.

There are no signs of it, and it appears the last time they even discussed HTML5 was 5 years ago.

In addition to Plex, Kodi Media Center (formerly XBMC) has a Crunchyroll plugin. If you also watch shows via FUNimations streams, there is also a plugin for that so you can get both in one media center.

I use Kodi because you get a much better A/V experience. The video renderer is far superior to the Flash video rendering, video is much smoother and a good bit sharper. Audio can be upmixed if you have better than a 2.0 system and has WASAPI output. Basic configuration is pretty simple and their website has a lot of good documentation. It also seems to run into buffering issues way less than the browser streams.

It's a fair media center for other uses and is also cross-platform so you can have a similar interface across all your devices. It supports Mac, Linux, Android, iOS and a couple others.

Good luck watching Crunchyroll with or without Flash on any device. I've tried my PS3, I've tried our Roku, my android tablet, other PCs in the house and the only issue I ever have with any website or Streaming service is Crunchyroll.
