Hulu on your desktop

I've never been much of a Hulu user, but I think that might be changing. I just installed the new Hulu Desktop application and it's pretty darn cool. You don't even need a Hulu account to download the app and use it (if you have one, you can set-up a queue and stuff though).

So far my only complaint is that it autoplays a featured video. Today, it's been forcing Conan O'Brien on me. I guess NBC is today's sponsor or something, but it's a little annoying. Anyway, check it out.

I love Hulu
I keep up with Hulu with rss feeds here on LJ. One for episodes and one for movies uploaded daily

I love Hulu too.

I would be so far behind on my tv watching without Hulu. Hell, I just watched TSCC again this morning on Hulu.

Hey, Hulu has lots of real movies! I keep forgetting that. But I need to make an account to see Sexy Beast, which is intended for mature audiences.

Yeah I always forget about Hulu. That's why I'm so excited about the application. Maybe with that little icon on my dock, I'll remember to check it out once and while.

been using hulu since it was in beta. love it. dunno why fox didn't count tscc viewings on hulu and only fod. fox is stupid. they're even screwing up ron moore's virtuality by calling it a "movie" and not a pilot. fox and good sci-fi -- not good for each other.

i had to watch tscc online on hulu when they moved to friday nites. :( either way, since i don't have a neilsen box on my tv... same difference, right?

I thought I heard Hulu did get counted in the ratings? Eh well, Fox fucked us regardless.

Hmmm.... never used Hulu before. Tried it just now to watch last night's Daily Show and it ran pretty jerkily. Can't say I'm impressed.

I think I'd only ever watched one show on the Hulu website before and it was laggy. So far with the desktop app, it's been streaming fine the few times I tried it out. Maybe the lag is just an occasional problem.

Well, if I can manage to find Leverage on there (since there are no DVDs and I don't want to take the time and drive space to torrent) then I will withdraw all my objections and even damn it with faint praise. :-)
