Luhu Streams Hulu From Your PC to Your PlayBook


The idiotic user agent based restrictions put in place by Hulu are annoying and have led to some creative solutions. The most common involves using your PC to act as a go between Hulu and your device. While there are more expensive solutions using Splashtop, PlayOn, or others Daniel Bingham has created his own take. Luhu performs the same function by streaming videos onto your Windows Vista or Windows 7 PC and then transcoding it to your PlayBook. There are quite a few caveats such as needing a fast PC and no video controls but it is a start.

You can find Luhu in App World for $1.99. I highly recommend reading Daniels post on the limitations of Luhu on his website along with the video below that shows how it works:

  1. Forget Hulu, we don’t need them! We can just go to the actual tv website and watch episodes for free from there instead of jumping all sorts of hoops for a stupid website that won’t allow its fans to watch from a simple website. Its not like we can watch it from overseas anyways so I don’t see what the big deal is in blocking the PlayBook.

  2. Just buy Splashtop. Remote into your PC from your Playbook and use whatever web service you want. I have Hulu and Netflix available with complete control on my Playbook.
