    Was testing a D2 in the Verizon store yesterday. Hulu gave an error message :can't display on this platform. CNN video gave a "Could not open or play vide" error. Are there limitations on playing video? I thought having Flash in there would address all that?

    Hulu has no rights to broadcast on mobile devices, therefore they block it.

    Try going to the bottom of CNN's page and click, "Full Site." The full site uses Flash videos, and they work great on my Droid 2. The mobile site uses .mov's, and they don't work in the android browser.

    Live TV is an app to try. Also, there's a modified Flash apk that works with hulu.

    As the name implies, Live TV only works to watch a live stream. If anyone finds an app or way to make Hulu work without having to root your phone or install a 3rd party app not in the market please reply to this thread.
