    KINDLE FIRE HD: Video player that support WMV files?

    I tired 4 apps and none seem to recognize WMV files for KINDLE FIRE HD. Anyone have name of APP i can download?

    We got the quoted words from one of the Kindle Fire HD user who wanna play WMV on the 7" tablet and are looking forward to finding a video player app that can support the .wmv format videos. I also hope an answer gets posted here! I visit a lot of sites that have wmv videos embedded and the Fire cant play them. I've tried lots of video player apps from Amazon store, but finally I failed. Fortunately, I found a great tutorial for you, guranteed to get WMV files playable on Kindle Fire HD by transcoding WMV to MP4 videos. It's much easier than you may think with some help from a easy-to-use video conversion app. If this is something you're interested in doing, read the full guide below.


    Before anything else, you have to download an video conversion app that you're using later, you're required to download and install:

    Pavtube Video Converter (available for Windows or for Mac users). Get the Windows version here, and the Mac version here.


    The program which can be used an all-in-one video conversion app for for Kindle Fire HD. It can also help you encode/re-encode almost all 1080p/720p HD videos including MKV, AVI, MPG, MPEG, VOB MOV, TiVo, MTS etc. for Kindle Fire HD. Meanwhile the quality of the converted videos is as decent as possible as original. Below is how.

    Guide: Converting WMV to MP4 for Kindle Fire HD

    Step 1: Install and run the Kindle WMV Converter to your PC, Click "Add Video" or "Add from folder" to import your source materials in .wmv format. Batch conversion is supported so that you can add multiple files.

    Step 2: Choose the output format. Click "Format" bar, you can get optimized videos for Kindle Fire HD under Android > Amazon Kindle Fire HD H.264(*.mp4). The output videos could fit on your device perfectly.

    Tips: If you like, you can click "Settings" to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. According to my experience, the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss, and vice versa. For watching videos on Kindle Fire HD, 720p with 2000~2500kbps is just all right.

    Step 3: After above settings, you can start the WMV to Kindle Fire HD MP4 conversion. Once the process completes, locate the files and transfer and copy the converted MP4 videos to your Amazon tablets. As you see, now you can effortlessly watch WMV videos on your Kindle Fire HD.
