Skyfire and Hulu question

I'm pretty sure there is an answer to this question somewhere out there, but I can't seem to find it.
Seemingly everyone is raving about Skyfire and its flash playback and hulu, etc, etc....
I can't get hulu to play on Skyfire. I got Skyfire ver 1.1, running MightyRom4. It just gives me a "not available on your platform" error. The internets say that hulu is blocking stuff, but I thought that stuff is supposed to be resolved.

Am I missing something? Or am I just SOL?

You used to be able to play videos via Skyfire but not any more. This explains it:

Well, that's too bad.
Looks like IE and Opera Mobile are a no go for me either.
Opera says that I need Flash Player 9 or higher, but I can't seem to find one.

Any suggestions?

One option is to use Slingbox, but that is a little more involved than just running an app on your phone.

How does Slingbox help with hulu and such?
Or are you talking in general?

Sorry, I meant in general. I know you can use Slingbox to stream TV from your home to your phone, not sure if it will stream from your computer. Might check into a program called Orb, not sure if that would help or not.

I haven't checked into these myself, just hear talk of them.

I see.
So, as far as playing Hulu and such on my Diamond, there is no way to do it through Opera or IE?
