edit: the method I posted works but takes installations and some time, ncinerate's method a few posts down should be easier and faster.
Someone (not me) already figured out how to get Hulu working again by hexediting your flashplayers identifier from webOS to windows and I can confirm it works.
Touchpad Hulu Block Bypassed - Pastebin.com
You have to install the sdk and a hexedit program if you don't have them, but it works.
Here is a link to installing the SDK, which he tells you to google
Make sure you get Virtualbox 3.2, later versions don't work with webos.
He makes the instructions a little more complicated than they need to be though, heres all I did after installing the SDK.
- Run "nova browser" which is already installed by the SDK. Browse to /usr/lib/BrowserServerPlugins/libflashplayer.so, and copy the file to your desktop. Make a second copy as a backup.
- Open the hex editor, select your copy of libflashplayer.so, search for "WEB 10" and change it to "WIN 10", obviously this is the identifier. Save.
- Back in novabrowser, select the browserserverplugins folder, use file > add and select your altered file to automatically replace the original.
Done. If you get permission errors at some point I believe thats what the chmod steps are for.
I have not noticed any side effects and cant imagine there are any, but the change is easily reversible if needed.
