Very classy move, Crunchyroll

The flash player ion the website doesn't work well on Linux, and the subtitles look awful there. This app was the one place I felt happy watching Crunchyroll videos. Sad to see it go.

Crunchyroll is a completly stupid. Why ban a working plugin that is 10x better than their fucking official web. I was still paying for my subscription. I don´t see my self ever subscribing again to this shitty service. Flash player in 2018 omfg.

Welp, suddenly stuck with having to use a browser on both my TV's. No thanks. -1 subscriber here.

And seriously, if you're going to do this, at least do it while offering some sort of alternative. Won't be coming back.

Also as an update, has anyone actually run this by some CR staff? They might not have any clue whatsoever as to what the eggheads over at Remove Your Media actually does.

The most disappoint think is, that if you search for crunchyroll on github you will find 40 repositories with software to illegally download anime, manga or subtitles.

But only the Kodi and Plex addon got DMCA'd...
Great job Remove Your MediaR, you're definitely worth the money.

The addon update to deactivate the crunchyroll addon was already downloaded from 14764 Kodi devices in the first 48 hours.

I'm cancelling my paid account.

If you choose to "update" again, this time from local package cache showing the previous version, it would "update" to the previous version.

But, I'm dumping my CR subscription anyway, just to demonstrate my displeasure over this.

Hmm, just canceled my subscription.
This addon did no harm to crunchyroll, since everyone who has the technical knowledge to use the code to actually pirate something would be able to do this by other means way easier.
On the other side this addon allowed paying customers to watch crunchyroll on kodi.
Well since I only watched crunchyroll on kodi, I now have no reason to pay.
This makes me sad, and I would gladly come back if the service gets better (an official kodi addon for example, or more love for the site. theres enough you could do.), but for now I'm out.

I'm cancelling my subscription as well. This add-on was literally the only reason I purchased a premium account. Way to penalize paying customers Crunchyroll..

I canceled by account just now. Thank you CR for how you treat your paying customers.

What most people here don't realise, the Kodi plugin is not official and the main thing that the DMCA takedown could be was, getting permission to make the plugin or even that the plugin broke ToS (which it did from day one) even if it used official account login.

i am pretty ure most are aware, but their only or at least first reason for getting premium was to be able to use this plugin i think (at least this applies for me), so why keep paying?
