  • Since I’ve received the update my Hulu application no longer works on my Windows 10 Laptop. I get the following error message “Video playback not supported on this device. (PB8-C0262500) Continue for more information. I contacted Hulu Support and they seemed to respond as if they did not know there was an issue even though I’ve reported to them four times already. They are quick to offer me a credit to my account and seems like truly no interested in resolving. Next stop, Microsoft Support.
