The only way would be to record your entire computer screen, but the quality would be sh*t (you don’t want that). Besides taking videos from hulu is no more legal then downloading torrents, so your probably better off just going to pirate bay…. while you still can.

Check out a program called Rip Tiger at www.riptiger.com

@sketchstudios that won’t work on hulu. In fact if you wanted to use something like that there is a free way of doing it…

First find a video of your choosing on YouTube or other video site (will not work on hulu). Copy and paste the following JavaScript code into your browser address bar and hit enter. A download screen will pop up and the video you just had on your screen will be downloaded to your desktop.

javascript:if(document.location.href.match(/http:\/\/[a-zA-Z\.]*youtube\.com\/watch/)){document.location.href=‘http://www.youtube.com/get_video?fmt=’+(isHDAvailable?‘22’:‘18’)+’&video_id=’+swfArgs[‘video_id’]+’&t=’+swfArgs[‘t’]}

The thing about hulu is that they have too many protections, any sort of recording or screen capture device you run through your computer is going to be detected.

@sketchstudios, is right on! It DOES work on Hulu. I even bought the program based on @sketchstudios recommendation and the way the trial copy worked. There are no instructions which doesn’t help but once you figure it out, you can download ANY Hulu video to the video iPod. Why would Hulu have protections? The videos are free.

@SirBailey you get picture and sound in MP4 format?

It has a conversion button specifically to do that. You have to buy the ULTIMATE version, however.
