Access Hulu outside US with MediaHint
If you live outside the United States the chance is pretty big that you don’t have access to Netflix, Pandora or Hulu.
Maybe you’ve tried it with proxies, such as Hotspot Shield, as i have, but it doesn’t always work and the connection through VPN is painfully slow. On top of that, you will be hit with a bunch of ads.
A couple of months back, a friend of mine sent me an email asking me if i ever tried MediaHint Firefox extension.
He told me that i can access Hulu with it and sure enough, i installed it and it works.
I made this screen-cast using 2 browsers. The first one is Chrome and i haven’t installed the extension on it. As you can see, i don’t have permission to see the videos due to my location.
Second is Comodo Ice Dragon, running on the same engine as Firefox, with the extension installed.
MediaHint works perfect for me and i hope in the future they will add BBC iPlayer to their list as well.

MediaHint is available at the moment for Firefox and Chrome and it’s a 5 star extension.
