That is because your browser must be deleting its cookies every time that is closes. The player has only been rolled out for about half of the CR users and will expand over time till everyone is using it so you may start using the new player than come back the next day and it may be back to using the Flash player again.

Since your cookies determine which player you are getting, it is actually pretty easy to choose your player, IF you are using a browser plugin such as "Edit This Cookie" (Chrome,Vivaldi,Opera) or "Edit Cookie"(Firefox) or something similar for other browsers.


To get the new HTML5 player:
Set the value of "VILOS_ROLLOUT" to : 9d5ed678fe57bcca610140957afab571_6

To get the old AdobeFlash-Player:
Set the value of "VILOS_ROLLOUT" to : 7fc56270e7a70fa81a5935b72eacbe29_6


Hope this helps you :)

PS: Sorry if mistagged somebody . I went through the comments copying the usernames of those who wanted to select new(good) or old(meh) player

Somtimes when i watch a new episode, the browser freezes and stops working.
I have to close and re open it 4-5 times before it loads the episode properly.
This never happened with the old player.
I use firefox.
Anyone had the same issue? Any solutions?


I found this in the massive amount of posts for this topic Selamat.

A few weeks back I was frustrated to the point where i was going to end my sub. mainly because of the problems i was having with the flash player. I contacted crunchyroll and was given a link to download a firefox addon of the html player.
The Html player is the only reason im still here. its great and with the addon it loads html 100%.
keep up the hard work on the player it nice with fast loading and no stops every 30 to 45 sec like i had with the flash.
thank you


There may be an addon for your browser to make it work right with this player dig a little to find out what it is or PM gooshpoo and see if he will tell you what it is that he added to his browser to get it to work.

Thanks for the information Oneric. That is a neat way to make sure you get the new player going.

Sure, seeing a lot of the same ones. I'm not an IT expert, just a "power user" and mainly collecting from the forum threads.

I installed the html 5 player, and it works for now on crunchyroll, but it completely wrecks youtube. Unfortunately, i need both.
If cr doesnt fix this issue by the end of september, im going to cancel my sub.
60% of the anime i want to watch is not available in my country and i cant watch the remaining. No thanks

If/until they do, you can manually change the timestamp at the end of the URL to 00

The new player is so much better. I occasionally got lag on some of the videos with Flash player if I tabbed out now, however, I I get nice smooth playback. Plus from a user safety point of view, this is a great change!

Why get rid of the pop-out video player? Bring it back.


I agree. Always used it and I'm already missing the feature...
