Boxee Box, "Watch Later" bookmarklet and Hulu Free
I'm totally new to Boxee and have been completely overwhelmed and stumped by Boxee's relationship to Hulu. I think I've picked up on most of it (HuluPlus at some point in the future) but there is one thing I'm confused about - Boxee's own page about their bookmarklet lists Hulu (I'm assuming the free stuff only) as supported for the "watch later" service. And, it does appear to sort of capture the Hulu video I'm trying to queue using Chrome on an iMac. But when I go to the Boxee Box and pull up my queue, I see the Hulu video but it won't play, I just get an error message. Furthermore, it seems to just be queueing generic Hulu info, there is no show title or length or any detail from elsewhere.
So, does Hulu just not work on the Boxee Box at all? Am I doing something wrong? Any help you can give would be awesome, and I'm sorry because I'm sure the Hulu questions get obnoxious. I wouldn't even ask except for the darn Hulu logo being under the supported sites for the bookmarklet. Seems like it SHOULD work. But who knows...
