Having problems when playing AVI videos on Kindle Fire HD? Find this easy guide.
Any way to play XVID/AVI files on Kindle Fire HD? I transferred some XVID and AVI files to the "video" folder and the Gallery app can't play them. Anyone have ideas on how to fix this?
To some users who'd like to watch movies on the 7" or the 8.9" Kindle Fire HD will be great improvement for more vivid visual enjoyment. However, as you know, as the other Android tablets, there always exists the file format limit of the tablet. And the lastest Kindle gadget only supports MP4, and VP8 videos. Although there are many Android Video Player apps out there which help you enhance your movie-entertainment, but none of them provides perfect support for XVI/AVI formatted videos. The powerful powerful MoboPlayer doesn't make an exception, and for XVID/AVI files you'd have to look elsewhere, or convert.
