Thanks! That's clearly a step in the right direction. Because Adobe Flash has such a terrible reputation when it comes to security vulnerabilities, there is no way I'm going to have it installed on my desktop PC. This means that I only use Crunchyroll on my Android tablet. And I've been a loyal paying customer for many years.

PS. Premium+ only? Are there any plans to eventually expand this to regular Premium users too?

Hit F12, go to console, then reload the page and like post a picture of the errors you get.

On the right side of that there is a tab called console, hit that and post the text in it. It looks something like this:

I'm a sucker for trying out beta features, especially when upgrading Flash to HTML5 so I just upgraded my account :)

Hope someday the anime player will be HTML5 too.

Beta access is a special feature of the Premium+ plan. When they are ready to go to release it surely will be available to Premium users (and possibly non-premium users for the first and latest chapters of some manga). The last beta feature they tested (the slick new Simulcast calendar) was in beta for many months so keep that in mind.

So if it expands to mere Premium users, will that be called the gamma test version?


Now I see! That's why I couldn't use it! No wonder!

Like the new manga reader. Definitely better than the old Flash reader. But is there anyway to either place bookmarks in the manga I'm reading or have it remember which issues I've already read? The Crunchyroll iPad App reader seems to do this, so it would be nice if the new HTML5 reader did the same thing.

Please use the feedback from this to switch to pure HTML5 for the video player too. Get rid of flash player for good. While you are doing that, get rid of the pause for x minutes means that you get 3 minutes of video and then the video freezes until you refresh. That is a pain. HTML5 is a lot easier to code for than flash player is as well and is a lot easier to modify. Sure, you can do that with flash player, but it is much easier and more flexible in HTML5, plus it will work for any latest browser.

Can you verify whether it loads in another browser or not?

Here's hoping this is a sign that you'll change the video player, too. I'm sure that would be a very welcome change.

I see you any some extensions in Chrome, can you try disabling them temporarily and seeing if the page loads then?
