Wondering which of your favorite shows have been posted on Hulu but can’t login to check? Now you can with HQueue. Released by a third party developer named “a good company,” HQueue is the first Hulu Queue Viewer released for the iPhone. It lists the shows in your queue and selecting an episode will display the season and episode number, a brief description and user rating of the episode. It’s probably important to note that you can’t watch, rate or remove shows from your queue with HQueue.
Since HQueue probably scans the basic Hulu profile to see which shows are in your queue, only those who have registered on Hulu and have subscribed to shows and set their profiles to public may find HQueue useful. You won’t have to worry about compromising your Hulu account with HQueue because all it asks for is your username and there is no login required.
Given the current methods HQueue is using to acquire your queue information and the potential legal ramifications of doing it any other way, I wouldn’t expect much more functionality to be added to HQueue in the future. For what it’s worth, HQueue does pretty much exactly what it says it does and if that is something you find to be useful, you can pick up HQueue in the AppStore for $0.99.

I don’t see the advantage over just logging in with safari.
There are a number of apps for the xbox and ps3 that can access hulu and the hulu queue
tversity and playon, of the two playon has the only workable solution.
So why don’t you see this on the iphone.
Because these servers which apparently have passed legal muster don’t support a video format compatable with the iphone.
Technically if you could access playon with the iphone and play mpeg2 content you could also play the hulu content.
That is what we are demonstrating.
Unlike hqueue we are not going to srape the hulu screen we are not even sure if that is against the toc.
Instead we present the queue in a webview, since there is a one to one match between what playon is showing and the hulusite we simple store the content from playon in a sqllite database and search based on the url from the hulu site.
Again there are better ways but that would violate the toc which says you can’t manipulate the hulu webpage in any way.Posted on March 7th, 2010 at 1:39 pm by Michelle
