I just thought I'd start a thread where we can collect issues with Windows 8 and problems streaming Amazon Instant Video. Recently, I've been experiencing the following:
- In the modern browser, the player hangs with a progress bar when trying to "Update the player". I see this with episodes of The West Wing HD. In desktop mode, the player successfully updates itself and starts the video.
- I connect my Win 8 tablet (Acer Iconia W510) to my projector using HDMI. Often, after a video has started streaming, the HDMI out suddenly dies, and the video starts stuttering or playing slowly. The only way to restore HDMI output is to restart the computer. This happens in both desktop and modern browsers, and is happening quite frequently. I have to just keep restarting and trying, with no discernible symptom, until I can get a stream to play without interruption.
