Hula or Hulu? Hula is that dance they do in Hawaii.

Watch TV. Watch Movies. | Online | Free | Hulu

Watch TV shows and movies free online. Stream episodes of The Office, Glee, Family Guy, SNL and many more hit shows.

Does that help any.

In short it is one of the legit ways to watch some shows on line.

I suspect you have a Hulu Button addon. It is not compatible with
Firefox 15.

I have used Hulu as late as yesterday to view a movie and do not have any Hulu Firefox addon.

Sounds like one of those ad/ tracking addons. If you didn't intentionally install it, suggest disabling
and/ or uninstall. Uninstall if possible.

I did uninstall the Hula plugin without any problems. I have not tried Hula, ever, but might later on. I still am trying to rid myself of the java toolkit entry in plugins tho. It is all that is left of java at this point. Probably not a big deal, but I like tidy :)...Not meaning to go on, but could not miss the chance for advice.....Thanks very much for all the help and advice....James...

It's Hulu....two "U"s....not the grass skirt hula...:).....Hulu - Watch your favorites. Anytime. For free.
The Hulu Button I was referring to is a Firefox extension and not a plugin.

This could of been what you had. It is a plugin called Hula.
JSPWiki: Hula

Hula is a Java client API to the WikiRPCInterface. This allows one to programmatically manipulate the content of a Wiki that implements this interface. Hula is distributed under the GNU General Public LicensePosted Image







Applications The latest version of Hula is attached. The full version supplies all the outside libraries used, nolibs doesn't. Source, classes, and javadocs are included in both.


There is a Hulu desktop, too. The only advantage I see for using it is it allows remote control on TV or monitor.

Yes, I believe this is exactly what I had....Thanks for the explanation link. I followed up on the Hulu experiment and learned that ads (aka commercials) must be viewed before movies can be viewed. I also learned that my Adblock Plus does not play nicely with Hulu unless I add a filter to allow it.. Not sure whether to do this yet. So, at this point,,,no harm,,,no foul....Thanks to all.....james

I disable Adblock Plus on Hulu.
An example: Viewing Jon Stewarts thirty minute show on TV includes 10+ minutes of commercials.
Viewing the same show on Hulu includes 3 minutes or so of commercials. You can view the entire
thirty minute show in 20 minutes.
