Hulu's flexible options allow general users and websites to distribute premium videos through their own framework. Whether you're a major portal, social network, video site, fan site, blogger or search engine, Hulu scales its service to deliver content everywhere, offering solutions for sites with basic, medium and advanced technical capabilities or individual users.

The media feed enables custom content integration and flexible implementation but with increased technical requirements. To take advantage of Hulu's media feed, sites must be able to ingest the feed into a content management system (CMS), to program web pages to expose thumbnail images and metadata and to surface the Hulu video player embed code provided. Sites must also honor availability and expiration dates associated with individual content assets.

Hulu provides webmasters and editors with the ability to quickly find and contextually place individual videos. Editors can use tools provided by Hulu to identify videos and embed the video in the most relevant section of their site.

Hulu provides webmasters the ability to index the site and send their users to the appropriate show pages on using a convenient site-mapping tool.

For typical Hulu users who want to share content on their personal websites, social networking profiles or blogs, Hulu's player embeds play a single video and are easily inserted on to any web page. Users can grab a video's embed code while watching on or from a distribution partner's site and add the code to their own sites or social network profiles to share with friends.

For users who like gadgets, Hulu's widgets are configurable and embeddable and provide access to Hulu's content library or selectable portions of it. Basic widgets link back to when a user selects a video. For video playback directly from the widget itself on the embedded site, choose the advanced widget embed code (note the increased Javascript requirements). Widgets can be placed on virtually any blog or social networking site or stand alone on your desktop.
