    I used to use iSwifter to watch videos from hulu.com, but as of a couple of days ago, while it loads the site just fine, every time I go to watch a video, it tells me it cannot play the video because I'm using an anonymous IP outside the US.

    Anyone else having this issue?

    Did iSwifter allow people outside the US to access Hulu content?

    Weird. I think iSwifter's servers are based in Seattle.

    I tried watching Hulu on Puffin browser tonight and it works perfectly. I prefer Puffin when I browse the web also. It is real smooth. It is my most use app.

    I checked out Puffin in the app store. The reviews look pretty bad. People were complaining that the video was choppy and there was no audio.

    I highly recommend that you guys email iSwifter support about the HULU issue:

    Yes, and broke Hulu's encryption to re-encode the content. Given one is illegal and the other a potentially criminal act in many countries, I think they should consider themselves fairly lucky they just got blocked.

    I think it is about your coverage. I have no problems with Puffin but my niece who lives two cities over has a lot of problems. Her 3g coverage is not that great also.
