Does anybody know of a movie player that will play http mp4 streams? I have a webpage on my DD-WRT router that displays movie cover art on a html page. For my smartphone, I use MX player as the "complete with" application and it works perfectly. MX picks up the http stream and plays immediately, without downloading.

The Kindle Fire HD wants to download the entire movie before displaying it. MX player on the Fire HD does http stream, but crashed immediately. I can't find a DLNA player that display the cover art.

My goal is simply to display a list of movie posters and allow my kids to click on one in order to play it, without downloading.

Do you really think I would go through the trouble to build an http server, but not google Kindle Fire http media player? You insight was worthless. Reported as abuse.

For what it's worth, I created a work-around until MX player is fixed, or I identify an http movie player that works.

I installed minidlna on the DD-WRT router. It create very low resolution poster art jpgs that can be displayed using BubbleUpnP (which has to be installed via ES File Browser and the apk). BubbleUpnP opens the native "Video Player" app that came with the Kindle Fire. The setup is not nearly as easy as the http server method, but meets the bare minimum need.
