    thank you for the hint. had the same idea and tried other brothers. using dolphin gives the best result. can you watch a full movie? after about half an hour dolphin crashes and i have to start the browser again.

    Thanks for reporting that we can get this to work on Dolphin browser with Flash. Do you actually get HD video? I see just 480p even after enabling HD.

    Hi. Having similar problem with Danish app "Min bio"(video on demand service).I have x8-h + but the problem is the same. Opening app is ok but when trying to play video app crashes to desktop with no error displaying. My minix runs Finless 1.1. App run fine on Lg g2 (kitkat 4.4.2 unrooted), also Pipo m6 pro ( freaktab rom 1.1 kitkat 4.4.2 rooted) runs without problems. Wandering what could be the problem with Minix?

    There is a xbmc plugin for instant video. Look at the Freaktab forum.

    I just tried this on my phone and the plugin worked like a charm! Can someone please confirm this works on the MINIX, I currently don't have access to min .

    You are the man! Thank you so much for the heads up about this plugin. Any luck with Netflix?

    Is there a problem with the Netflix app? I made the one month test period with no issues.

    I have also gotten it to work on the X8-H+ but here is how I did it
    1. Uninstall Instant Video
    2. Install Amazon AppStore
    3. Install Instant video

    Done. Works great

    So using the X8-h Plus using newest firmware you, 1) intentionally installed Instant Video, 2) uninstalled it, reinstalled the Amazon Store and the Amazon Shopping app that it needs to run Instant Video, 3) reinstalled Instant Video and it works?

    Did you install from the Play Store, Amazon App Store, or sideload? Did you use the Amazon shopping app for tablet or regular? Did you install the Shopping app or Instant Video first?

    Yes, I was on the newest firmware (4/8?). Then I uninstalled the Instant Video App, then installed the Amazon AppStore (for the first time) and installed Instant Video DIRECTLY from there (no need for Amazon Shopping App). Working like a champ

    Interesting... Yes, Amazon did enable Prime Instant Video for Android tablets (it was limited to Android phones initially). Now, you do have to install the instant video app from Amazon App Store. It however does not work on the X8-H yet. Hopefully, it will work on 004 firmware.

    So for Drew McClure it works and for WeK05 it doesn't?

    It actually works on the X8-H also. You just have to change the browser type to Android. It is set to iPad by default.

    I gather that you have to be an Amazon Prime Member to get access to all their content (and that the app is useless to someone who isn't.)

    In the UK, Amazon are giving a free 30 day trial period and I am considering it but I would like to know that this app works well before I use up my option.

    I have the x8-H - where do you set the browser type to 'Android'?

    You can set it within Instant Video app or the browser.
    Click on the three vertical dots at the top right corner of screen. Settings --> Advanced --> Set browser type --> Android (This is for the default Android browser. If you have set another browser like Chrome/FireFox/Dolphin as default, you may not need to do this).
