Cannot watch shows on hulu or nbc.com

I am having trouble watching shows on hulu and nbc.com Anyone else having this problem?

It says the minimum requirement is Intel Core 2 Duo 1.8GHz. I have AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-56. Is this worse?

Have you tried using Hulu Desktop which downloads programming directly to your desktop? It works great with the AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-56 in my Vista notebook.

I did and it gave me the message "error 41". I looked it up and it seems to be a problem with flash player. I reinstalled flash and I still got the error, so I don't know.

On another note, I was trying to view hulu on Firefox and this is where I couldn't watch the shows. I tried on Google Chrome and I was able to view the shows. Not sure why it doesn't work on Firefox for me.

I cannot view shows. I can watch the advertisements and all but when the show is about to start, it just stays black. Nothing downloads.

In you previous post you said you could watch them in Chrome, just not in FF. Is Flash working in the browser you want to use? Test it here: Adobe - Flash Player .

Yeah, it works fine. I don't know why I cannot watch shows.

I'm not using FF but if I had a problem like that I'd consider doing a FF repair (if possible) or a FF reinstall followed by a reinstall of Flash. Since you are using 32-bit Windows I assume all the software is also 32-bit.

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?
