I used the script to install the huludesktop (including copying the menu manually to the correct directory). It launches fine, but I get no sound. I tried launching it from a console rather than from the mythfrontend and here is the output I get in the console:

ALSA lib confmisc.c:768:(parse_card) cannot find card '0'
ALSA lib conf.c:3513:(_snd_config_evaluate) function snd_func_card_driver returned error: No such file or directory
ALSA lib confmisc.c:392:(snd_func_concat) error evaluating strings
ALSA lib conf.c:3513:(_snd_config_evaluate) function snd_func_concat returned error: No such file or directory
ALSA lib confmisc.c:1251:(snd_func_refer) error evaluating name
ALSA lib conf.c:3513:(_snd_config_evaluate) function snd_func_refer returned error: No such file or directory
ALSA lib conf.c:3985:(snd_config_expand) Evaluate error: No such file or directory
ALSA lib pcm.c:2202:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM default
ALSA lib pcm_hw.c:1429:(_snd_pcm_hw_open) Invalid value for card

It looks like the huludesktop (or any other flash player for that matter) is trying to use ALSA to do the sound. I am not using ALSA as it doesn't work** with my sound card. I am using OSS instead. I get sound for everything else (vlc, frontend, xine, mplayer, etc...), just not the flash based stuff. Does anyone know how to force flash to use the OSS drivers instead? My google-fu has failed me and I'm getting extremely frustrated.

** my sound card is an on board and the system shows it as an MCP61 High Definition Audio. If anyone can tell me how to get that to work with ALSA, I can go that route as well. post edited to show the output of ossinfo:

I was able to get Hulu Desktop sound working with OSS under 6.03 by installing

From my LinHES box I grabbed this precomplied 32-bit binary:


Then installed the library:

sudo install -s /usr/lib/oss/lib
sudo install -s /usr/lib
sudo ldconfig

This page explains and also give instructions on how to compile the library for yourself:
