This problem only happens on this site. No where else has a flash player crashed on me. When are you going to update your player to HTML5?

First, if you happen to be running Windows 10, you can skip the web player and just use the app.

Given that some time ago CR apparently went to a "announce on launch" policy for apps, I expect the same will be true of any major website features. In other words, you probably won't hear anything about a HTML5 player until they drop it on us like a bomb.

One hope may lie with VRV, a related service. It is currently app-only, but will eventually have a web player. Interestingly, the main page of their website plays a looping video in the background, and it definitely isn't Flash. (It plays fine on Firefox, where I don't even have Flash present). The source code reveals that video is using the Theora codec in a OGG container.

Web (Flash) and app on win 10 are both having issues today. Freezing and skipping.
