I got a Kindle Fire HD 8.9" and upgraded to the 32gig thinking great I can watch some HD movies and other stuff. But the internal video player doesn't work. And I tried a bunch of other video players and none of them seem to work. Not to mention that there is a 4 gig limit which is really lame. I really don't feel like converting movies either.

I'm trying to view and load:

and hopefully .mkv

The internal video app that comes with the device plays the videos but are very pixelated.
But the apps that I tried the videos look nice but play choppy and no sound.

Apps that I tried:

Personal Videos- comes with the device
HD Player
VPlayer Video Player

What apps are you using? Any suggestions?

I used vlc. Was able to watch 10+gb 1080p .Nov movies with few issues. Audio gets out of sync when things get choppy. Easy to fix with a short rewind. Only happens when adjusting the volume or brightness.
Did have some slowdown issues also when lots of fast action was playing. Have not tried 720p yet but I would think those problems won't happen with the lower resolution, I hope at least.
