Awesome! I can't wait to see this one evolve. Can they throw in a section for your music and movies too? I would be willing to use this app as my main media center with a little more work. But for now, it's back to Plex.

No complaints here. I have been waiting for a Hulu desktop client like this for a long time. I'm not saying it's perfect, but what a start.

There is an update already. Looks nice never really did Hula but it seems cool. You know most of these things are on Youtube now. I'd buy an apple tv in a heartbeat if I could get this and Netflix streams. I am trying to figure out how to get it full screen LOL.

By George! There's an update already. Surprised

I don't think you can go fullscreen with the remote, but Command + F or the Windows key + F will take you there on the keyboard.

Exit should be listed at the bottom of your menu.

I am thoroughly impressed with the beta. I didn't think Hulu had it in them. The interface and responsiveness with the Apple remote and mouse are most impressive. Now can we bump up that video quality a tad more? I would love to see those 720p videos they have sitting in the HD gallery across the board and in this here app.

I think the app is bada$$ too. Laughing

I know this is one of the small things in a sea of coolness, but I like how you get a thumbnail preview in the progress bar for searching and skipping around. That's really handy.

I LOVE this application, but I wish the text was just a little bigger. It's a little hard to see from across the room.

Can you quite Hulu desktop using just the apple remote? I'm launching Hulu desktop from the newly updated Understudy plugin for FrontRow, and I can't seem to find a click combo on the apple remote to quit Hulu desktop and return to Understudy and/or FrontRow. I've added a squawk on the Understudy wiki.

Works on my G4 mini! Not very well, but it works. I think I have install a specific version of Flash, so I might try that.

Cool! I didn't even know that Understudy was updated to launch the Hulu Desktop. You should be able to scroll down to the bottom of the main menu in the Hulu Desktop and hit exit with your remote. That kicks me right back out to Front Row. If that doesn't work for you, try trashing the frUnderstudy.frappliance from /System/Library/CoreServices/Front Row.app/Contents/PlugIns and restart your Mac mini. Then reinstall Understudy 0.7 from here.

They released a program which does NOTHING for most people.

They need to get a simple little launcher like that in Plex and Boxee. That's really all you need.
