    we shall download the clip and analyse.
    but the video and audio clocks must be OK in this firmware, just to check decoder compatibility.

    Hulu plus shows crashes midway to the home screen. When resumes it goes direct to the end of the show. Adverts during shows are 'fast forwarded', I have no issues watching Hulu Plus on my PS3 and my PC's.

    Android app =/= PS3 =/= PC...
    Are you using the genuine apk from Play Store?

    We've checked this app on a few different platforms (non-Amlogic),
    all of them are having the same problem,
    I don't think it's our job to fix it as their older versions worked before.

    @WeK05 have you seen the same problem with Hulu? Thanks.

    I downloaded the clip and played it on a i7 PC, WD box and X8-H,
    they all have the same tiny "jump" at the same time and same position during the playback,
    e.g. around 6:56-6:57 & 7:03-7:04 when the woman got off the car and walking towards the house.
    It should be the problem of this clip, I repeated the same moment for more than 50 times and the "jump" appears at the exact same time & position,
    regardless of the device that I am playing with. There are many other more scenes with the same phenomena.

    P.S. Uploaded the torrent file in .zip so others may try too.

    recovery: update from sdcard/usb do not work anymore:

    mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 on /sdcard failed (no such file or directory), now try read-only to mount again
    (same thing as read only)

    cannot install su, so.

    I have not experienced any crash (I have checked it for only a short time. Will check longer tonight). The ads being fast forwarded is normal. After you have watched shows on Hulu for a while, Hulu will either fast forward certain ads or give you the option to watch all the ads right at the beginning of the show to give you an uninterrupted experience.

    I am not sure why this video has 23.976 framerate. It is a broadcast TV show recorded from NBC. Broadcast shows in the U.S. are usually 29.970fps. It may have been IVTC'ed. I will record the next episode tomorrow and see what the actual frame rate is for this show.

    It is probably converted from 50 or 30 fps to 24 to reduce download size.

    you are wrong! a lot of shows have 23.976,most of the shows have it! a see around 26 shows and all are 23.976... from download sites sure... in the us tv channel i don`t know...

    What am I wrong about? You are making statements based on pirated recordings. Where do you think the download sites are getting these recordings from? These are not from blu-rays. These are broadcast recordings. In the U.S. broadcast channels are either 720p 59.940fps or 1080i 29.970fps. There is no 23.976fps that I aware of. If this show was shot in 23.976fps it has to be telecined for broadcast (29.970/59.940). Now this clip has 23.976fps which means it has been IVTC'd. Not all IVTC algorithms are perfect. The stutter could just be a problem with the IVTC process for this particular video from this particular pirate group.
