I have searched this question and cannot find a good answer. Most of the apps that I have read reviews for say they wont work for the HD, (no flash player on the hd). Anyone have a simple answer please?

Amazon Prime, Netflix, Hulu Plus all work. Most youtube videos will work with the proper app. Many of the networks have not yet updated their videos to HTML5 or other non-Flash format.

There is a workaround to get Flash on the Fire HD.

If you want to take a few extra steps, you can install a web browser that supports Flash and also install Flash on the Fire HD. Once you've done that, you should be able to watch video from most websites. The only website video I was never able to get working was CNN.

To install Flash: (You have to have a Flash compatible browser in order to install Flash. You can't install it under Silk.)

Do the following on the Fire/Fire HD itself:

Swipe down from the top > More > Device > Allow Installation of Applications.

Install ES File Explorer: ES File Explorer

Download and install the Dolphin HD and Flash Player apk files from this link:

Once both files are downloaded to your Fire, open ES File Explorer and look in the "Downloads" folder. You should see both files there. Install Dolphin HD *first* by tapping on the icon. Then Install Flash.
