    Good god at your nails!

    And is that a video of a video? Why not just email the video to yourself, and then upload to Youtube, rather than taking a video...of a video?

    We've already made some inquiries and although the answers were a bit vague, it sounds like getting wifi only approval should not be an issue.

    If this app was solely a hulu viewer I would agree, however all the application does is play content from media servers. there are other apps in the app store that do that.

    Here are the differences:

    We transcode on the device not the server, thus we are not limited to a single backend app.

    We support common servers that are sanctioned on other platforms, and these servers just happen to support hulu.

    I have to think hulu is working on there own app, they probably looking at converting content from flv to h264.


    Maybe we are better engineers then them...

    There have been several attempts to port ffmpeg to the iphone, most are only marginally useful, we took some of those solutions, fixed the issues and now have a working player.

    As far as as know this is the only one that works, although there are most likely apps in the app store that use the tech but don't wish to comply with the gpl/lgpl licensing guidelines.

    I have to go and watch some more hulu now.

    In 2007 we tried to put out a webkit based upnp app, it only marginally worked because of the limitations of mobile safari.

    The video shows the transition between 2007 and 2010..

    Others have caught on to that and we got mostly good marks.

    However the video was really just to supplement the tons of info on our websites.

    As for nails, she's only 21 and that is not atypical of colledge students. I was a bit radical when I was a girl her age too.

    Well unlike some other people I want to first congratulate you on creating a video app, and best of luck with it! I will however mention that the video you posted is not the best way to throw your app out there ;)
