Tip: Watch Hulu on your Motorola Droid

Still enjoying Android 2.2 on your Motorola Droid?  What about Flash?  Ready to watch your favorite shows on Hulu yet?  This seems to be goal number 1 for many of you and we’re pleased to announce that it can be done fairly easily.

Instructions…

1.  Obviously you need to have Froyo installed.

2.  Obviously you need to have Flash 10.1 installed.

3.  Open up your stock browser.

4.  Type “about:debug” and press enter.  (No quotations)

5.  Hit “menu” and then select “Settings.”

6.  Scroll all the way to the bottom of the settings and tap on “UAString.”

7.  Select “Desktop.”

8.  Back out of settings and go to this URL:  hulu.com/widget/player

9.  From there, find a show to watch and done!

Comments or questions?  Who is not loving life right now?

Cheers Ray!

    Just want to add that this isn’t necessarily a limitation of the
    phone, but of the mobile platform in general. No matter what smartphone
    you get, you will run into the same problems as of right now.

    They do not block the droid

    Try crackle instead of hulu…works just fine.

    Yup, all steps worked as described up to the point when u have the widget player up and actually try to watch something. Obviously even when being recognized as a desktop rather than a droid, they still have found a way to keep us droid users out!! Very disappointing, especially because I purchased the droid2 when it first came out thinking that its flash capabilities would finally allow hulu on my phone! Sad :( HAS ANYONE FOUND ANOTHER WAY?????!!!?

      Typing about:debug just opens up more options from the settings menu tree.
