Windows 7: Hulu keeps stopping...

Hulu keeps stopping...

Hulu is really the easiest place to watch this new anime i've just discovered, Bleach, and every now and then it just stops, *waits about 10 seconds or so* then continues. I also notice that the buffer meter is all the way down. this is EXTREMELY frustrating! Is it like this for you guys? this is one of the only times i've used hulu so I'm not familiar with it. and my internet is 100% fine and during these times i can watch large HD youtube videos without any problems.

i find hulu to be great, as long as you connect through browser (FF) and not through hulu desktop or some other third party crap fest (boxee, etc).

That happens to me too, dude. Just leave it and get a drink or something and let it load, then play it.

Happens to the best of us.

Anyway to increase buffer size other than the default by pausing ?

I don't normally have much issue watching things on Hulu... usually pretty smooth. Give Hulu desktop a shot, perhaps it'll help with the issue.

Any HULU Plus Subscribers out there?
I'm just wondering if $7.99 is worth the upgrade to HULU Plus. It seems to me that if they're going to charge a fee they can get rid of the commercials. Does anyone recommend any other services or is HULU Plus a good upgrade?

Watched Hulu on Hulu won't stop playing in background
Ok here is my issue. Last night I wanted to catch up on parks and rec, so I watched a few shows. This morning, I turn on my computer and parks and rec is playing! All programs closed, no video except audio. I don't know what to do! I restarted the computer twice and that didnt work. Any...
As I suspected, since Hulu started their Hulu Plus subscription service, the available programming on regular Hulu, of interest to me, has dwindled considerably. Even their 1 week trial requires giving them a credit card #, which gives them the right to make continous debits each month on the...

Hulu Ad Blocker
In a recent change of the Hulu web player, it was supposed to contain a change to regulate ad volume, but in reality all that it does is boost the volume from what had been an annoyance, to an ear blasting wall shaking sonic wave. In the past, my firewall blocked some ads, but for some reason,...

Hulu Desktop
I just installed this, because I got fed up with problems viewing Hulu on my browser. So far, so good, except one little thing...I have gone through the settings, and I couldn't find one for keeping it on top. Is there such a thing as a switch that could be added to the exe that would give it...
Hulu Desktop
I like Hulu Desktop. It presents some odd behavior though. When run full screen on a second monitor, CPU usage is 50%+ Full screen on the primary monitor, CPU aproaches 50%. In fact, no matter which monitor it is playing in, changing the window size up and down has a direct corelation in CPU...
