WTF Huhu.

Why would you intentionally break 64bit Linux. We finally have a working flash plugin and my myth box works great, except for hulu. What's the problem with 64bit. With windows I can download the videos and watch them later, why not block all of Windows.

Here it the response I received back from Huhu.

I apologize for the inconvenience you are experiencing. Unfortunately Hulu.com is not currently compatible with the 64bit alpha version of Flash for Linux. In Hulu Desktop, however, we do some special maneuverings to make it work. As a 64-bit Linux user, you can still use Hulu.com -- but you will need to install the wrapper 32-bit version of Flash.

More information about that can be found below:

For Fedora: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Flash#32_bit_wrapped_version

For Ubuntu: http://landofthefreeish.com/linux/howto-installing-flash-player-10-on-64-bit-linux/


The problem is 32bit flash with wrappers, craps out on some games like www.physicsgames.net which the kids love and doesn't work right with cbs.com.

Sorry Huhu not a good enough.

They just stopped it from working with no good explanation.
