    I thought a lot of people would find this useful so I just tried Hulu with skyfire and it does work. I don't know how long it will work. I have a feeling it will be shut down sooner than later though but for now atleast it is working.

    Did you guys try full episodes though? I noticed I was able to watch a video on hulu yesterday after it was updated, but it was just a small 2 minute clip. Then I tried to watch a full epsiode, and I just got that black screen saying hulu wasnt compatible with my device.

    I tried watching Glee, if that makes any difference. Didnt try watching other full episodes.

    Really? That's great then! Would anyone try watching an episode of Glee (just seeing if it actually works, not watching the whole thing)? Maybe it's just my Droid :(

    I'm also rooted and using the Bugless Beast ROM in case that might have any effect on it.

    I was able to watch the latest episode of Chuck and there wasn't any sort of lag. It was a pretty good quality.

    Worked for me. Was able to watch latest episode of Glee. Couldn't find a way to skip forward or back, though. At least it plays.

    I am pretty sure you have to accept the update in order for it to work. Go to your market downloads if you didn't already do so.

    I wonder if this is related to the update of if Hulu has changed their policy? You would think the dev would have mentioned this new "feature" if it was something that changed on his/her side.

    people are reporting it is not working until they update the client it might be related to both client and the policy change though
