Diana over at Dee’s Delightful Blog is Hulu.com’s newest fan. A joint venture between NBC Universal and News Corporation, Hulu.com launched in the spring of 2007. Their mission is “to help people find and enjoy the world’s premium video content when, where and how they want it.” About a month ago, they announced the release of several widgets, which hits the nail on the head as far as satisfying the when/where/how components. There are four different widgets: Player, Summer, Show, and Picks widgets.
Player Widget allows users to watch content directly from the widget and track featured, most popular or recently viewed videos. Additionally, you can search for videos not found on Hulu.com This widget can be embedded to the Apple dashboard, iGoogle, soon Facebook, among others.
Summer Widget features a unique video each day, so this widget is not customizable.
Show Widget serves up your favorite show, by episode or clip. When new videos are added to Hulu.com, the widget automatically updates as well.
Picks Widget allows you to choose from today’s highest rated, most popular, or recently added videos.
All widgets can be embedded into your blog/site.
