  1. Thanks for your help. I downloaded Firefox and was able to use the Hulu app…it had sound and everything.

    1. You ran through Firefox? Or are you saying simply having the Firefox app exist on your iPad made the Hulu app itself work?

  2. I tried all of the fixes and none of them worked. The sound was working just fine an hour before. I logged off for an hour and when I got back on it didn’t work. Someone suggested that the volume on the app might be muted but I can’t find an icon for the app volume to check on that.
