    If it's possible I would like to know how. The videos don't show up in the "activities" box in safari, but I've heard that people found a way to get around it.

    I think Firefox's Video Downloader can download Hulu videos. Not entirely sure though.

    I wasn't able to get it to work with FF and the video downloader. I wonder how they are able to hide this from the activities panel.

    file2hd.com doesn't work, the only thing I can think of is hooking up one computer through composite cords to eyetv set to another computer to record and that sounds like way too much for me but I'd be interested if anyone has tried this

    Doesn't Hulu use content protection anyway?

    If you really want to record something onscreen, grab a screen recorder tool like Snapz Pro X or Screenflow.

    Replay Media Catcher works wonderfully. Only problem is it only works for Windows AFAIK. Have to use boot camp or virtual machine with windows.

    EDIT: Seems that it has stopped working with Hulu. The creator still claims it does, but others say it has recently stopped working for unknown reasons.

    If you're using Safari, you can download Hulu videos directly from the Activity window. If you have third party tools required. Check Hulu Downloader for Mac

    Hey, you can't download video from hulu, because hulu video is not flash video but encrypted video, so you can't download it in common way. But you can use some screen recorder to help you record video from hulu, the program can help you record every activity on your computer screen with high quality, and you can also use it to record video from any other web.

    :D It's cumbersome and stupid actions but a thrilled video may trigger you to ado this in the case of no other available method! screen record softwares defintely in need in my case. A video stream recorder is deisgned to capture Hulu video. AFAIK, it will record protected Hulu videos from computer screen.

    Suppose screen recording is a good way of being able to download and save Hulu videos and tv shows to your hard drive, since most of the hulu downloaders that catch the url and download Hulu videos straight from them stop working at some point.

    If you have some win pc near by, there are some screen capture aps that can capture and record Hulu streaming videos without any issues, like this one for example.

    I've been pretty much successful with that Audials Hulu Downloader app, managed to record Hulu videos on my win laptop in pretty good quality.
