As mentioned in the thread jimbodude posted (which I read before attempting hulu), hulu_plugin.so was not installed so I had to apt-get it. Beyond that, with a fresh install from the 810 beta 2 DVD everything else was ready. I just went into the media wizard from web admin and clicked the hulu button. I suspect the plugin is simply a missing dependency of lmce-hulu-player that will soon be fixed.
It's pretty cool, but until I figure out how to back out of a show without completely exiting hulu, or until mapping/control is added to do this, it's a bit clunky.
edit: I'm also not sure if you can get to the volume control in hulu right now, but that's no big deal IMHO.
