    Thanks to Phandroid.com for the notification. An update to the Skyfire browser enables Hulu TO WORK!!!! (for now until they catch on). Go to the Marketplace for the update and have at it!!! I watched Family Guy! Not bad at all. :p Enjoy it while it lasts...

    It's been working off an on. I can watch clips just fine, but full episodes throw up the "Device not supported" error.

    I'm not sure why it would bother Hulu that Android can stream their site.

    They still don't play for me, even with Skyfire they say the Adobe Flash player is required. What am I doing wrong?

    Did you update Skyfire last night? Are you getting the popups to watch the video?

    Hulu probably doesn't have the legal rights to distribute the media to mobile phones.

    No, you don't click that.

    You click the "Video" tab on the bottom left of the Browser.

    Can you tell us what version of Skyfire you're using? I went to see if there was an update and there wasn't....I can't get Hulu to work either.

    people who get the flash error: You need the skyfire browser from the market. The stock browser won't work!!!

    even with the new skyfire browser, some of the videos won't load. it's hit or miss right now. i've been trying several different videos and for some odd reason, some of them load, and other don't.

    I found it works all the time with Hulu...BUT here's the catch...

    Sometimes the "Video" pop-up doesn't always work with Hulu's website. Skyfire can and will load the video on the page but you sometimes need to click the video open icon on the "Skybar" which is actually [on the bottom despite it's name] even if there is no popup.

    Works for me! :D

    BTW, this is ridiculously great! MAJOR thanks to the Skyfire team is deserved!! Now if only they could make pinch-to-zoom as smooth as the stock webkit browser.
