So since the Flash Apocalypse is coming this year, any plans to actually fix the Flash situation?

Says who? Many browsers are de-emphasizing Flash, but I don't know of any major ones that have unilaterally blocked all Flash content completely.

It's very similar to the Java Applet situation, as soon as all the browsers block it by default, flash will die shortly there after.

I don't recall any browsers incorporating Java by default (in the way Chrome, Edge, and IE on Windows 8 include Flash), nor do I recall it being as widely used as Flash.

As to whether CR will be making any moves away from Flash, I would say keep an eye on what is done with VRV. That service (from the same parent company) doesn't have web player yet. If they roll out a HTML5 web player there, you can take that as a positive indication for CR.

I'm curious to see if CR tries to shift more users over to VRV, especially after they get account linking working.

It is interesting to me that even though Adobe states https://blogs.adobe.com/conversations/2015/11/flash-html5-and-open-web-standards.html?scid=social_20151201_55826586&adbid=671559505906282496&adbpl=tw&adbpr=63786611 :


Looking ahead, we encourage content creators to build with new web standards and will continue to focus on providing the best tools and services for designers and developers to create amazing content for the web.


Sites like crunchyroll continue to bravely use Flash...

I am between subscriptions / I was goimg to try Premium Plus With HTML.5 / but then roll out VRV today but no mention of HTML.5 / then for now it's Apps only / np PC's for now,

Well they lost somebody who was only between subscriptions for a week until it's all in fine print available for all platform users with HTML.5

You talk about the cart before the horse,

I imagine PC support will be added to VRV once the CR HTML5 player beta has ended, and is rolled out to general users.
