How to fix Hulu

Are you having issues with Hulu in Chrome? If Hulu is not working in Chrome, there may be a few reasons behind it, but it can be quite annoying and frustrating when you just want to watch your shows.

In most cases, Hulu not working in Chrome often occurs when either a connection is weak, or a crucial update is missing preventing the video from loading on Hulu. This might not be specific to Chrome, but in today’s TechSplat article, we’re going to take a look at how we can fix Hulu not working in Chrome. Without further ado, let’s jump right into it!

What Causes Hulu not to work in Chrome?

In most cases, Hulu not working in Google Chrome can be put down to a few reasons. These are just some of the reported reasons why Hulu may not work, and your issue may reside within another fault.

In most cases, users are reporting that the browser that is being used is unsupported, which means that Hulu cannot load videos, or for another reason is unable to play any entertainment on your device. Changing the browser can fix this problem, or see if this is the reason why.

In some other cases, people report that their device or internet connection is slow, which can cause issues on the Hulu site. Not only this, but if you have a browser that is holding onto data, this may also be another reason Hulu is not playing ball.

Update Adobe Flash Player

Even though Adobe Flash Player is no longer supported, there is still a good chunk of apps and services that use Adobe Flash Player. In this case, it may be worth updating Adobe Flash Player to cover all bases of the issue. To do this, follow the below steps.

  1. Firstly, launch Google Chrome.
  2. In the search bar at the top of the page, enter “chrome://components/.
  3. Once opened, in that list you will need to find Adobe Flash Player. Once found, hit “Check for Updates” and wait for the page to refresh or update.
  4. Once completed (or after 5 minutes), hit refresh, and restart your browser.

Once completed, you will need to launch Hulu again, and hopefully, this will have resolved your problem. If not, we have a few more steps you can try to resolve the issue with Hulu not working in Chrome.

Disable Chrome Extensions

Chrome is notorious for its extensions marketplace. In some cases, these extensions may be poorly maintained, or not very well optimized for other applications such as Hulu. As a test, we can disable all Chrome extensions to see if this will help the problem. To do this, follow the below steps.

  1. Firstly, you will need to launch the Google Chrome.
  2. In the top-right, is a small jigsaw-piece that you will need to click. This is the extensions section of Chrome.
  3. Once clicked, you will need to head into the “Manage Extensions” part.
  4. Here you will need to disable all the extensions as a test. To do this, make sure all the sliders are set to the “Off” position. If there are any you don’t recognize, you can also delete these.
  5. Once disabled, you can restart your browser.

After doing the above, it’s best to try to test Hulu again. On another note, if Hulu begins to work again after disabling your extensions, try turning them one-by-one back on again, to find out which extension was causing your problems.

Update your Operating System

As a last resort, your device itself might be preventing Chrome from loading any videos from Hulu. This is quite rare but is always best to check to ensure that you’re covering every angle. To do this, follow the below steps.

  1. Firstly, press the Windows Key, or click the search bar at the bottom, and enter “Check for Updates“.
  2. This will take you to a menu, where you can further “Check for Updates“. You will need to click this. (If you’re device has the option to “Check for Updates from Microsoft“, you should click this one first).
  3. In here, you will likely get some updates that will need some time to complete. Wait till all of these are done.
  4. Once completed, restart your device.

Once completed, you have restarted your device. It’s best to check for updates again, but if your device is fully up-to-date, and there are no more updates to complete, please feel free to try to launch Google Chrome again, and visit Hulu to see if this has resolved your issue.
