Skyfire updated, still can't play Hulu videos

While we were busy frantically trying to get Hulu videos to play, Skyfire went and updated the browser on us. Here's what's new in build 1.0.0.12113 for Windows Mobile:

  • Reduced Memory footprint.
  • History is presented in the proper order.
  • Cookies in the UK data center are handled more reliably.
  • Sharing links via SMS are handled more reliably.
  • Reconnect correctly loads the last page in history plus we’ve improved reliability.
  • Site specific issues have been resolved for Rooftopcommedy.com and thefind.com.
  • Zoom buttons behave properly and disappear after a couple of seconds.
  • Default browser setting works more consistently.
  • Text entry on Symbian has been improved with one caveat below.

Hit up m.skyfire.com to download the new build.

  • Hulu has always work on my fuze. Sometimes I even use the tv out cable and watch shows using skyfire on my tv.
  • Forget what I just said
  • someone needs to hack hulu site and DELETE EVERYTHING for this outrage! What about FANCAST did any1 check that site.
  • Hulu's bound by contracts to keep the content in the States. SkyFire proxies out to the UK (and others?). Just gotta do what they gotta do, I guess.
  • @Me Hulu is a business and is dependent on the ad revenue from it's sponsors. What they've done is figure out how to limit their own success and profits by locking viewers out. Someone should get these guys and the record industry together; they'd have a lot to talk about.
  • I just installed the new version of Skyfire on my Sprint Treo Pro, and Hulu is working for me. Something must have changed.
  • I uninstalled skyfire and re-installed it and Hulu is working again...I have not downloaded the new version yet... try it...
  • skyfire version .9 did NOT allow hulu to work again by doing a reinstall. upgrading to current version of Skyfire also did not work. XV6800 - verizon.
  • Hulu has worked for me since pre-beta.
  • It is still possible to stream video from joost.com. Hulu's loss will be Joost's gain. Someone from hulu will leak a work-a-round in order to maintain website traffic levels. Otherwise hulu could request individuals certify ;) they are from the US. Does anyone know of other websites to stream video?
