Is anyone here using the Hulu Plus app without issue?
I just started using it a couple of days ago since I signed up for a free month of Hulu Plus. The app is very nicely designed and navigating through the menus produces no lag.
I'm having a big issue with the actual streaming content, however. Well, two issues:
1. When the content pauses for an ad break, it always seems to struggle with replaying the content after the ads are over. It will play the ads, and then load the content back up from the starting point, play a second or two of the start of the program, pause itself for 10 seconds, and then return to where I had left off. All in all, this process takes longer than it does to view the ads, so this is rather annoying.
2. Sometimes, either directly after returning from an ad break or just randomly, the content will freeze and will stop streaming. This lasts about 30 seconds, and then it replays again but stops two seconds later only to do the same thing. It very much feels like there is a buffering issue, however I've turned the quality down all the way to the lowest possible and it still freezes and cuts in and out.
I have a 50/10 Mbps connection and am hardwired into my Gigabit router, and I have no issues streaming with other devices. Has anyone ever had this happen to them, and if so, how did you fix it?
