Hulu Desktop for Mac!!!

Hulu just released a desktop client for the Mac which is compatible with the Apple Remote.

Download Link:http://www.hulu.com/labs/hulu-desktop

Here is a video of how to use the Remote and other features Hulu has released in a section called Hulu Labs:http://www.hulu.com/labs

It would be cool if Hulu could have integrated this into Boxee and Plex as well. I would like to see an iPhone app as well as a Remote function within the app.

Other Features of Hulu Labs:

Video Panel Designer
Video Panels are easy-to-use embeddable widgets that allow simple content programming and easily integrate a Hulu video player. The Video Panel Designer tool helps site editors and Web masters customize and program Video Panels to fit their needs.

Recommendations
Recommendations are a list of TV shows and movies that we think you'll love based on videos you've already watched and rated on Hulu. Anyone with a Hulu account can access these recommendations: log in or sign up for a free account and select the Recommendations tab found on your Profile page.

Time Based Browsing
Time-Based Browsing allows you to quickly scan our videos grouped by original air date. Whether you're a TV junkie who remembers shows by the day of week they air, a budding media anthropologist curious to study TV's evolution across the decades, or just a user in search of timely news clips, time-based browsing is another way to easily find more videos on Hulu.

Oh for hell's sake I love Hulu! But I have to say, Plex is where it is at, when you run a media center or not.

Thanks for the info.

Loaded on my Mac Mini connected to my LG 42" TV. Works great with my Apple Remote. Nice Layout. Be cool if there was a hook into Front Row where you can load Hulu Desktop from it.

Very clear picture. Boxee is good also. Plex I don't have yet.

G5 = jumpy video

I was really hoping I would like this application. But on my G5 iMac (2.0 GHz, 1.5 GB RAM) the video framerate is so low that it's unwatchable. Hulu through Safari works reasonably well (I know I have an "older" computer so I don't expect perfection) so I was quite surprised at how jumpy this was. Plus the UI isn't that great if you don't have a scroll wheel (I'm back to the original mouse that came with my iMac until I get around to buying another replacement).

Found the answer:

New version of Understudy will add menu item to FrontRow
