Hulu plus list of web only content

I am a Hulu plus subscriber and tend to watch via my sony blu-ray player which I believe is an android based app. I also have a computer hooked up to my TV that I rarely use but I have noticed that quite a bit of good content on hulu is web only. The Hulu android app doesn't show web only shows unless you specifically search for them. Is there somewhere I can see a list of what is available on Hulu plus but is web only? I can't seem to find any.

Why are online videos stuttering?

Video and audio of online videos (YouTube, Hulu, etc.) stutter quite often when I play them. My laptop is not old by any means and it's been recently formatted. I've updated all the drivers and tried using both the default and HTML 5 Beta players on YouTube; no difference. Seems to be worst in Chrome. Any idea why this is happening? Thanks.

Using Hulu (free) with Chromecast on iOS?

I've googled this, but every reference is to Hulu Plus. I have an iPod 5th gen, and the Chromecast dongle plugged in to my TV. Using the Chrome browser for iPod + Chromecast app, watching stuff like Netflix works fine. However, when I visit Hulu.com, the site detects my OS/Browser, and won't serve me content unless I buy Hulu Plus. Of course I can plug my laptop directly in to the TV, and watch Hulu's free programming that way. But not with Chromecast. Is there a way to mimic a desktop browser in Chrome, and then 'Cast' a Hulu program to the TV? Other options?

How to go from zero to TV?

We haven't had a proper TV in over a decade. I would like to have something other than my laptop to watch streaming media, DVDs, Netflix, etc. Can you explain how this works in 2013? I imagine we'd buy something like this Samsung LED HDTV and some kind of speakers. Then what? Do we plug it into a laptop? What exactly is Apple TV and how does it stack up against Roku? This seems like it should be a simple question, but I feel like a caveman emerging from the dark, and am fairly bewildered at all of the options and variations out there. [more inside]

List of Criterion Movies on Hulu?

Is there a full list of the Criterion movies available on Hulu? Hulu recently borked the searching on their website making it impossible to search on directors or genres (or almost anything). You can browse to the Criterion section of but there doesn't seem to be a "show me all the movies" subsection. Is there a 3rd party site actually that lists them all?

Entertain Me!

I know everybody asks this (and I've read through the previous questions looking for recommendations), but what should I watch next? Preferably on Netflix or Hulu Plus (not web only). In general, I tend to like: mysteries/crime procedurals/law dramas, especially with a quirky twist, and also shows involving a quirky band of misfits (or individual) working outside the law to bring justice to the little people while finding out who done them wrong (e.g. the A-Team, Burn Notice, The Pretender, etc.) I also like heist shows and sci-fi. And occasionally anime. [more inside]

How to search Hule and Netflix at the same time?

Is there a site that searches all the flat-rate streaming sites (Netflix, Hulu, and now Amazon prime) for a particular movie/tv show? Or, better, that's like Instant Watcher for more than Netflix? I realize I can search all the sites separately.

Locate Free 1.78:1 Trailers?

Is it possible to obtain free current movie trailers in a 1.78:1 aspect ratio (i.e. 2.35:1 matted to be 1.78:1)? If I download them from the Apple site or Youtube they're 2.35:1 without mattes. This is a problem because I wish to display them on a 16x9 monitor, so they'll stretch out to 1.78:1. [more inside]

HOLY CRAP THAT'S LOUD

Is there any way to normalize the volume output on my PC so I'm not startled by clicking on a video link? The volume on YouTube and other sites varies so wildly from video to video that my modus operandi is to mute before I play the video, then slowly increase the volume, but I'm hoping there is a better way.

I need help picking media center software. What fits my seemingly simple requirements?

I came into some hardware I have no other use for, so it's time to try some "media center" software! Yay! Difficulties: Spouse-friendliness is important, I don't know the media center scene very well, the hardware I have isn't all that fancy, and my patience for scouring all the different projects' forums to sort them out is somewhat limited.

You didn't really want to post that to MeFi, did you? Oops!

The latest versions of Firefox and Safari that can run on my Mac Intel G4 tower (OS X 10.4.11) keep crashing when I open more than one video in separate tabs or windows on YouTube or Hulu. The problem isn't consistent, but it does seem to happen when I have at least 7 or 8 tabs open at once. Can anyone help me solve this? [more inside]

Watch Hulu and other sites from overseas

I live outside the US but I'd like to watch US based content on my Mac from places like Hulu. Is there an easy Mac application that will seek out a working US proxy and make all the changes? I'm thinking of something with a big on/off I've played with the massive proxy lists- but most of them seem to not be working. I would pay for an easy solution.
