    Wow...works great and I would suggest using the Amazon shopping app, but not the tablet version. It's a much easier interface than the web interface.

    It doesn't work with Amazon Shopping app that is installed from Play Store, but it works with a sideloaded apk. Play Store version specifically tells you to install the Instant Video app for tablets.

    unfortunately the above steps didnt work for me. Why I try to start the video app. it sends me to the browser when I try to watch say a trailer it takes me thru
    the download sequence again.
    Tried the browser agent setting, tried chrome and dolphin , tried uninstall reinstall - no luck. on an 8Hplus if that helps.

    Minix should find a solution for this issue.
    I have a X8-H Plus and not sure if I should go back to Amazon Fire TV!
    Airborne 8 was more responsive on Fire TV too!

    Not even giants like Google and nVIDIA can get Amazon Instant Video on the Nexus Player and SHIELD Android TV resp.

    I installed the Amazon Underground (app store) then installed the Amazon Video app from that.
    I get the exception below whenever I try to play a video:

    Thanks @ Minix Team

    Now Amazon has to offer only HD streams for Android.:)

    EDIT:
