View Full Version : Video stream from hulu

February 16th, 2010, 06:41 AM
I used to use a site hulu.com to watch movies and TV shows now I get a warning that I can't stream bandwidth low.
I laugh because I test and have decent at 19mbps down speed
Does anyone else have this issue?
Well actually I know of one but anyone on this Forum?
I have no issue with youtube or metacafe or several other sites
Any suggestions???

Is this with the site or the desktop client (or both?).

This is with the site
I do not have the desktop

both systems are 64bit

using instructions for flash install found
on this link (http://dailystruggles.org/installing-flash-plugin-for-64-bit-system-in-karmic-koala/)

Your instructions look good. Only things that seems like they would degrade bandwidth would be something like an awful wifi connection, though I imagine you aren't using something like an old wireless b router (yea it's 11 Mbit/s, but lots of interference in most households/workplaces).

Aside from that, I am out of ideas. Perhaps HULU maps out where your IP is from and decides your speed based on location? I would check out the desktop client and see if it still happens. Whend di the issue start( was it grabbing the flash alpha that was just released, yea it's been out for a while but it was actually patched a few days ago)?

I haven't updated flash lately and I will try the desktop

Wireless is N so no issues there
subroute and route are cloned so it resolves one as the other in/out up/down

This issue I noticed a few weeks ago
but all other video sites work fine

And other systems not even on the same network have similar issues

Now this is quite interesting
The hulu desktop software actually states

gtk2.0 v2.12+, but only Fedora 9+ and Ubuntu 8.04+ are supported.

You must have Adobe Flash Player 9.0.124 or higher installed. If you can
load and watch videos on Hulu.com, you should be able to use Hulu DesktopI have contacted hulu but have not received response yet

Would anyone know where I might watch episodes of "House"
