    I have managed to get Hulu working on my G Tab, and wanted to share the process with y'all. As per usual, thanks goes in part to the xda-developers.com gang for the hacked Flash.

    I have tested this and confirmed that it works on the following setup:

    ROM: VEGAn-TAB-v1.0.0B5.1

    Here you go!

    1. Download and install Skyfire 3.0 from the Market (getting reports that Dolphin HD Browser works better)
    2. Download and install AdFree Android from the Market
    3. Download and install THIS version of Flash: Adobe Flash Fixed for G Tab
    4. Open Skyfire and change the following settings
    4a. Go to Settings->Browser Settings
    4b. Set Load Pages As: to Desktop
    4c. Set Enable plug-ins to: Always on
    5. Open AdFree, allow it to create the Hosts file.
    6. Click on "Revert"
    7. Reboot tablet

    You should be good! I have tested this with the Today Show, the Simpsons and SNL.

    Cheers,
    p

    Do you have to uninstall the flash version on the tab first? It won't let me install the fixed version, I keep getting an application not installed error.

    Correct. Go to Settings->Applications and uninstall it from there.

    Ok, found another way to do it...follow this link [HOW-TO] [Flash] [HULU] How to make Hulu (and others) work on the Samsung Galaxy Tab - Page 2 - xda-developers and look for the post by agentdr8 about half way down. Download his fixed libflashplayer.so.zip file. Unzip it and move the unzipped libflashplayer.so file to your SD card. Using Root explorer copy the file and go to the data/data/com.adobe.flashplayer/lib file and paste over the existing file. Now make sure your settings in your browser are set for desktop version blah, blah. I successfully got it working in the hulu apk from Adam B. (XDA) and Dolphin HD. Good Luck.

    Also you must be in US to get Hulu without additional hacks (proxy)

    OP, do you have any issues with lag, video freezing, and random reboots?

    I am running into these problems with my gtab....

    It will initally load the video, play for awhile, then BAM, all hell breaks loose. Video starts freezing then reboot...



    **Update**
    Not sure if its just my GTab, but with dolphin HD, Hulu works fine for a couple of mins, then video freezes and reboot.

    With Skyfire, able to watch different videos with no problem...
