network website video?

Hello,

I am thinking about using a Chromebook or Chromebox as a HTPC and was curious if you are able to view network website videos. For example, on the HGTV website (www.hgtv.com), they have full episodes of some of their shows available for viewing. I can view these easily on a Windows PC, even using the Chrome browser.

I have been unable to view these using my Android phone, and was just curious if it works with Chromebook or Chromebox.

Any other general tips or suggestions using one of these as a HTPC?

Thanks!

Great, thanks! That's awesome to know.

I was initially thinking it was a Chrome limitation, but I guess it's a Flash-thing.

Seriously going to consider a Chromebox as our next HTC.
