Crackle Video Streaming - Free to Watch on PC, PS3, Roku, Sony Products

submitted on March 30, 2011 by pablos17 in "Member's Lounge"
Checked the site out today and it appears to have some decent (mostly older) movies and some TV shows available for viewing and it worked very well on my PC. The only caveat, of course, is that the viewing comes with quite a few commercials.

Sony's Crackle has had a more successful life so far than its previous iteration as Grouper, streaming movies, TV shows and shorts to various devices since launching back in '07 and announced today its full library will be streaming to the PS3, Roku boxes, Sony Blu-ray players and Bravia TVs. Expanding full access from just the Google TV (there's also an Android app that currently streams some of the items) it's taking credit as the only provider offering free full length flicks including Ghostbusters, Bad Boys, A Few Good Men and more for free on these platforms. The drawbacks are video that tops out at 480p standard definition and Hulu-style commercial interruptions but if you absolutely must watch Weekend at Bernies II without spending any money it is an option -- at least, as long as the PS3 browser doesn't crash with an out of memory error like it did for us. It did work better on more capable platforms, so check out the full details in the press release after the break.
