Put Hulu back in Boxee

Fans of the Boxee media player were bummed last week to hear that Hulu support would be removed. From the Boxee blog:

two weeks ago Hulu called and told us their content partners were asking them to remove Hulu from boxee. we tried (many times) to plead the case for keeping Hulu on boxee, but on Friday of this week, in good faith, we will be removing it.

Thankfully, an XMBC media player hacker put together a workaround, and Kevin at Lifehacker did a nice job of documenting the steps needed to get everything working again under Boxee. There have been reports that a few videos don’t play correctly, but on the whole it’s working for people most of the time. Hopefully it will function as a standby until Hulu’s content providers come to their senses.
