  • Love Videos? Love Hulu Desktop!

    Hulu Desktop is an application that changes the way you watch movies and videos on your computers. It features smooth lines and a clean new look that has been designed to work with the standard Apple or Windows Media Center remote controls, making it easier for you to control and operate the applications entire movie and video collection by just using six buttons. Hulu users who do not have remote controls, can make use of their mouse or the keyboard.

    The application is very easy to use. To navigate the library using your remote, press the back or the menu button to switch between the menu and the current video you are watching. Use ESC or Tab if you are using the keyboard. Left and right keys allow you to go to your preferred menu item and pressing “Play” or “OK” gives you that selection. To check your progress within the video as you ae watching it, simply tap on the up/down arrow. Pause and resume a video using the remote or the spacebar on your keyboard.

    Hulu Desktop’s library entries may be categorized according to your preference. Arrange them alphabetically, by network or by Hulu channel. With the remote, you can watch a random video by pressing and holding the “enter” or “play” button. Additionally, if you have a Hulu account, you can link to it to your Hulu desktop. To do this, just go to your main menu, go to Profiles and add your profile to login. As soon as you are logged in, you’d be able to go to your account and would be able to set your preferences such as the video playback quality or having the closed caption settings turned on.

    To summarize, I can say that Hulu Desktop is a great free application to watch videos and movies. It is very easy to navigate and provides features and options that result to the best viewing experience. Also, it is free of charge and works well with Linux, Windows and Mac.
