Hulu.com support
Anyone familiar with http://www.hulu.com ?
Just opened to the public today. But seems like a pretty sweet video content site with full length movies as well as tv series, all for free.
So I'm wondering what it would take to enable the PCH to connect and view content from hulu...?

Think it's US only, getting an out of region error here (UK).

Ah, right. Looks like that is the case. Says it is currently for US viewers only.

It makes sense.
I guess just living in the US I take some of that stuff for granted.

I'm sorry for most of you guys, because it looks like hulu.com kicks ass.

I'll have to try it out at home though. I would think if they could get youtube to work, and it's based on a flash player, they might be able to get hulu.com to work. 2.5mbps minimum requirement for HD stuff. Crazy!

The problem is they didn't get youtube flash to work, youtube do an alternative that they got to work.

Flash will never be supported, unless sigma manage to pull of a miracle.

Yes, I see that hulu.com is using Flash.
So do you know what the workaround was to get youtube to work? Was it an alternative on the youtube side?
I'm just hoping that with some ongoing discussions on both sides, a solution might be found.

Yeah it's an alternative youtube side.

Well, I just got a response back from Hulu support. I had asked them about alternate methods of accessing their content. Below is their response:

"We are currently not supporting other hardware media devices (e.g. Settop boxes). We will in the future determine if we will support other protocols, etc. as we identify our broader multi-platform strategy."

Bummer. Nothing for now.

Other ways of getting it to stream? I'd like to hear those ways.

I know there are ways of video screen capturing, like using XVidCap on my Linux machine (although I'm having trouble getting it to record the sound right now). But that's a lot of work to go through for each video.

they recently made an announcement saying they wanted to expand to phones and what not. I think everyone should email the feedback address and let them know that people want a way to use the nmt and other hardware players with it.

If it is HD and flash then presumably it is just mp4 files with H.264 video. Should be possible to just skip the flash player/front end and access the mp4/f4v's directly. Guess it depends if they are using flash's streaming server or just progressive download.
