Reviewing tha faq shows no linux support at this time. I had to cancel immediately. It was working for months before, and now no audio ect... what
the heck happened? Do I go netflix canada now?

The sobs... I just tested various oses in vms... only windows 8.1 and above now work with crave. Win 7 won't and linux won't. I don't really care about win7, but linux, come on.....

It's likely just a browser issue. Have you tried Waterfox? I find it works best for video streaming. The Linux version is trivial to grab;

I haven't used crave tv on my pc except through fibetv, which I used to use with internet explorer, then edge.. but they no longer support those two browsers, firefox is now the only browser supported for that.. Still doesn't help with your problem. Hopefully the post above will..

Well after further testing, even with the big fat warning... I can stream Crave just fine under linux. I retested under win 7 as well... works. They need to figure out what they are doing, they could lose
a lot of clients over a stupid like that. I have to consider reactivating my account. Just stupid.
