He created one, but it doesn't seem to be available at present.

The HTML 5 player which is in "beta" hasn't been changed at all in the past 5 months. Doesn't work on chrome, keeps on buffering. At this rate it'll take years for it to replace the current player.

P.S.
I know what beta means. Just because it is in beta doesn't mean it shouldn't work at all.

If You Tube can go to HTML 5 why can't Crunchy Roll? Let the excuses begin.

It would be more appropriate to say something like "Funimation went HTML5, why can't CR?".

YouTube is on an entirely different scale of resources, and had little content that required DRM. Even Hulu, which dwarfs CR in number of subscribers (but at least has similar DRM requirements), only went HTML5 around the end of last year.

We actually need a more complex implementation than most other websites who run an HTML5 player. There are very few services out there you use styled subtitles in the powerful format that we use. We could easily push out a player that only supports hard subtitles, but we'd lose a lot of the features of the current Flash player, if we did that. We rather want to add more nice things than cut them away.

Yep, that's the death knell for Flash in browsers which means Crunchy needs to be working on that HTML5 player.

If as they say for some reason they can't get certain features working on a HTML5 player I can see them dropping in-browser playback entirely and forcing you to use the console and mobile apps

there's actually a tutorial on how to do precisely that , and it doesn't seem all that diffficult.
all you need is a little javascript and css. there's also the option of using an existing html 5 video player that supports subtitles such as Able Player.

There are lots of implementations out there. We prefer to build our own though.
The URL you provided has nothing to do with what we need for subtitles.

Why reinvent something already invented? Or does CR plan to drop streaming and force everyone to VRV? We're seeing popup ads for VRV, I've seen "What's Popular on VRV" (or similar titled). This leads me to believe CR is going to stop streaming and migrate everyone over to VRV.

I'd love to see HTML5 happen.

There is no implementation out there that already does that we need it to do. As such, no, it's not "already invented". What would be the point in implementing an HTML5 player less powerful than our Flash player?

Not putting your users at risk after Adobe stops patching Flash?
Performance improvements?

Putting it off because of that is not a good idea.
