Hi I have had to replace my husband Kindle, as the screen is only working half way down the screen.
we tried for three hours on line to Amazon and also phoned USA.
The staff were really helpful and had a kindle on line for us to BUY, but it came up Not in this country. We purchased a Kindle from a local shop in NewZealand. could you please E.Mail Alan Keith at with the details on how to transfer his book form his broken Kindle. thank you. Avril Keith

I have never been able to play Facebook videos on my Kindle Fire since I've owned it. Says get Flash Player but that is "incompatible". Now I think the YouTube and any other website not being able to play videos is something totally different, and that just happened in the last few days for me.

At least read the last page of responses before you add to a thread. The fix has been posted.

Well, mine now works! After typing my last post I just tapped the sync button on my Kindle and nothing seemed to happen so I kept searching the problem on my laptop. Next time I woke the Kindle up, my video played!! Great big thanks to Joe and Lily for their input. My grandson would get absolutely NO use out of his Kindle if he couldn't play You Tube videos!!

I'm not sure what you mean by automatically vs manually. I downloaded the program which is supposed to install it at the same time. When it didn't work on my first try I repeated the process. Once the program is downloaded/installed it's not possible to go to my Kindle's "downloads" and press the file and load it manually. What did you do?

It worked for me.
I just hit the sync button and went to bed.
When I got up it was updated and youtube works again.

It did not work for me. Does anyone have another suggestion or, possibly, a reason it works for some and not for others?

Did you do it manually? It didn't work for me when I tried doing automatically but it did manually

Having the same problem now. Was watching YouTube last night and now it won't play any videos. Kinda feels like I wasted money if this doesn't get fixed.

Posted on Aug 7, 2015, 7:23:23 PM PDT

I can click on videos but I can't watch them. The video just freezes at the beginning and I can't play videos.

Posted on Aug 7, 2015, 6:27:19 PM PDT
Same thing. No Amazon video. No Youtube. This is funny: Just tried my husband's identical Kindle Fire 8" HD and everything works on his. Go figure.
