Hulu Plus is one of the best Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 streaming apps currently available in the Windows Store. Recently, it has received a pretty important update, as well. However, many Hulu Plus users have been reporting the PB4 error.
I am not able to enjoy Hulu Plus services on Windows 8/Windows 8.1 myself because I’m based out of the United States, but our readers have sent in this question, asking how to solve the annoying PB4 error that they are having while running on Windows 8 or Windows 8.1. Some have been experience PB3 errors, as well, but the nature of these two problems is the same, so we’ll try to apply the same fixes, which you’ll see that are very simple and straightforward.
Some basic tips to get rid of PB4 error in Hulu Plus
This problem is only affecting Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 users, and it seems that with the release of Windows 8.1, some of these issues have been taken care off. So, you also need to make sure that you make the jump to Windows 8.1, despite the fact that there are many who’d like to see it uninstalled. If you are running Windows 8.1 already, then follow the below mentioned steps.
First of all, it seems that PB3 and PB4 errors are appearing because the video or audio drivers are missing for the app to run smoothly. So make sure you perform a Windows System Update, as well. Also, check that your graphics drivers are update, most of the time, these are from AMD, Nvidia or Intel, so go on their websites to manually download the needed drivers for your selected model. We also recommend this third-party tool (100% safe and tested by us) to automatically download all the outdated drivers on your PC.
If you are running Windows 8 through a virtual machine, like VMware or Parallels or mabye using this device through a partitioned computer such as a Macbook, chances on getting the PB4 error are much higher. So just make sure that you’re running the latest version and that your software is legit. If you know of other solutions, then let us know by leaving your comment below.
