I just bought a copy of Kindle Fire HD. How can I watch videos that I copied from my hard drive or via Cloud ? Whenever I'm trying to click on video on my kindle there is only an option to watch lovefilm.

If you have put your own videos on to the Kindle Fire, (in MP4 format) they are accessible using the "personal videos" app.

Laura thanks for that. I would add that the easiest way I have found to transfer video files is a good old physical USB cable running between my PC and Kindle. Click and dragging files to copy them to the Kindle this way have proved easier and faster than trying to do with Kindle Cloud.

Kindle Fire HD 8Gb
Definitely NOT the most intuitive or simple device to use.
Cannot call it a tablet as it does not follow the simple Android type of device, maybe was cobbled together by Ms & Apple engineers, for looks rather than ability.
Why no simple "Gallery APP" or "Video App" I DO NOT WANT to use lovefilm or whatever other subsiduary of Amazon sells videos.
BUT! I do want to watch those I have purchased at great cost!

There are video apps available in the app store.
