Managed to get a 48h pass and noticed the HTML5 beta player and have decided to try it out.

Feedback
So far it seems really good. I don't see a way to select which resolution so I assume it's auto or full 1080.

I love the timer displayed on the old browser so I can skip the intro easier and noticed the new player doesn't have it. I have had the site/browser mess up and was able to glance at the timer to easily jump back to the spot.

After viewing an episode I could use the next episode button and move easily to the next.

The current play timer and the at cursor timer can overlap which can be bad.

One thing I need to try is to see how long I can afk before I have to reload the page. This seems to happen quite often on the old player after about 5-10 minutes of a video being paused.

Suggestion
Add the current timer to the beta player.
Add next episode to the beta player.
Have a way to view the current timer and cursor timer so they don't overlap.
Introduce a way to skip past the intro/outtro. At least have them marked like you mark the advertisement spots.

Having used other streaming sites, I'd love to see CR player have the capability to stay full screen and load new episodes. Even if it was limited to one series at a time. Although (cont in next step)

I'd love to use my Queue list as a smarter queue. It'd be sweet if I could load my Queue then hit play and each new episode of each series I've added would play in full screen.

I thought the beta player was only for Premium+ members? But a guest pass allows you to get access to this? Yet us normal Premium members don't... I want to be able to try it out.

From what I've observed, the guest passes confer Premium+ status for 48 hours, even those earned via Premium accounts.

As I recall, creating a second account is against the terms of service (although I've seen it done in cases where someone's account was hijacked and they needed a way to post), one could always create a second (free) account and send themselves a guest pass to that account.

I see, I never realised that before. I guess because I have never been on the receiving end of a guest pass. It's a little annoying that a guest pass, although only for 48hrs has more rights than us paying members.

I might just create a second account like you mentioned for the sole purpose of testing out the html5 player. Of course I would only use it for this one time.
