    Has anyone else tried watching videos on the new website Hulu on the Wii? I tried yesterday, got to the site fine, but could not view videos. Thats really too bad if we wont be able to. Its a great site that would be great to watch vids from on my plasma.
    Comments???

    You might wanna check out Hulu if you like movies and TV. You Tube is great for home vids, but this site is awesome. Maybe check it out.

    Wii only supports flash 7 and below while hulu use flash 9. Currently Adobe wont let Wii use anything higher than 7.

    Can't get your Barney Miller and Buck Rogers fix on the Wii? That stinks.

    Adobe has not released and updated version for the Flash SDK for embedded browsers. Opera has already complained about it. The PS3 browser is similarly limited with their Flash capabilities as well.

    Here's what the Opera developers said:

    If Microsoft was smart this would be a good time for their Silverlight project to take off. If it supported opera/non-pc equipment it would have a good chance to compete with adobe flash.

    Hulu would rock, but I don't think the wii supports the newest flash yet.

    Actually, the PS3 plays videos from Hulu just fine. It got a patch about 4 months ago that allowed for it.

    Yeah, you're night, but when I posted that message it was March 2008, long before the PS3 browser was updated.

    Yeah I know of Hulu. They have all the Family Guy and Futurama episode. Too bad.

    Not for me. Brand new PS3 and it locks up solid whenever I try to watch video at Hulu. Maybe it's the programing I choose since some seems to use different variations on the technology. What do you watch?

    And yeah, it would be great to have Hulu and Netflix streaming on the Wii. A good start would be to provide a DLNA client so you could stream from your PC.
