Best news!! I actually just opened my crunchyroll app and got excited when I saw the chromecast icon. Woman thinks I'm 12.

Best part I love is how its presented on your decice when you cast: just a box with stop/pause/disconnect. No more catching glimpses of buffer time that your computer is ahead of the chromecast by. Now you can hide this and go browsing with other apps while you watch your show on tv.

Thanks for making this happen.

why does one need chromecast to play on tv or phone? I'm a bit perplexed behind the reasoning needed for it. Currently, I can stream videos from my phone without issues. Also, on the same note I can simply plug in my computer with HDMI to watch it on my television or perhaps just use my xbox 360.....? explain why we are still talking about this?

If you are currently streaming videos from your phone (I assume via Miracast if your phone is Android or AirPlay if it is an iPhone), you are doing just that; streaming the content from your phone. With Chromecast, the video is streaming from the internet to the Chromecast, and the phone is only acting as a remote.

Yes, you can plug your computer in via HDMI, but not everyone wants to do that. Do you really think most people want to string an HDMI cable to their notebook across the floor to their TV when they could just sit down in their chair with it and press the cast button in Chrome?

As for the Xbox 360: I suppose you never considered that not everyone has one. Even if they do, having more than one method of viewing CR doesn't hurt, in the event their is a problem with one.


I've seen similar cases of "I-don't-get-it-itis" for Roku or other streaming media boxes, wireless streaming from phones or tablets ("I can just hook up a MHL cable), and various other technologies. Just because you personally don't see the need for something, doesn't mean others don't.




I'm glad you've taken the time to explain the reasoning behind it. I guess my situation is a little different than the average individual when it comes to use of the internet. For example, I can not receive wireless signal within my basement for internet access. I use this area as a workout room while streaming anime. However, the only way I can possibly do this is by running a powerline adapter to and from the outlet in my wall piggybacking off the circuit to my router for access of the internet. This being the primary area for working out I watch anime with a wireless headset. By using a Wireless headset if I were to run additional wireless through circuit to the basement this would drastically increase the troublesome EMI.

Thanks for the feedback I was glad someone took the time to explain to me the reasoning for needing or using something such as, Chromecast.

If you cast from a browser are subtitles the same as in the browser? Specifically, can they be turned off? Unless there's been a recent change that I'm not aware of with every other non-browser option (PS3, iOS, smart TV, etc.) there are no subtitle options, so I'm wondering if / hoping that this will be different. If videos can be played without subtitles then I'll finally be picking up a Chromecast.

Ah hahaha.. I had just bought a chromecast a week ago and said, "but where's Crunchyroll?"

Thank you, Crunchyroll!
