Skeptic- not trying to be an ass, but I had hulu working when we had to download the *.so from Thom's personal website.... my understanding was that no additional updates were necessary other than just selecting the Hulu player software modules for each MD for the software to work.
No worries - just wanted to mention that it apparently doesn't affect everyone. Either that or I upgraded shortly before whatever update caused the issues. For me I just started with apt-get update/apt-get upgrade, then apt-get install lmce-hulu-plugin, then enable it for the mds in web admin.
Don't get me wrong- Thom has done some amazing work for LinuxMCE and remains an important (if not THE important) aspect to LinuxMCE in the short/long run, but for now there appear (for my experiences) to be a few issues with Hulu. I had it working before, I thank Thom for taking the time for getting it integrated with LinuxMCE, but currently, I cannot get Hulu to run.
Where is the DCERouter.log?
Agreed - big thanks to Thom. It's still not perfect, I have issues of my own, but for a work in progress it's great.
I second this!
The Hulu setup in lmce is amazing. I couldn't get my wife into using hulu until it became a simple mouse click like picking a movie to watch or song to listen to.
I had it working on my revo and the experience was good (couple missed frames) but definitely watchable. I have the revo with a 1.6ghz atom and I think only 512 ram. I know it was mentioned that sometimes hulu would not maximize to fill the screen and rather than a defect, I think this is an asset. I had a significantly lower frame rate when the revo was trying to drive a picture (720p iirc) to fill my 32" screen vs just a hair less around the borders. BTW the borders on the application would show when hulu wasn't maximized but this was/is a non-issue for me.
Again- great job
As far as I can tell, LinuxMCE is not using hardware accelerated flash. My core/hybrid is an AMD dual core BE-2400 (2.3GHz), 2G RAM, and nVidia 6600 GT. It's a couple years old but should be able to well outperform any ION based nettop. Full screen 720p is watchable, but I also get the occasional stutter. If/when flash 10.1 beta is included I expect we will see a big improvement.
I'm not sure what you mean by filling the screen just a hair less around the borders getting significantly better frame-rate, but I'm curious. I'd happily trade a small border for improved framerate. My bedroom MD is an older laptop and Hulu is basically unwatchable even on low quality, it would be nice to be able to use hulu in there, even if it is a bit jumpy and a bit less than full screen.
