Movies you copy from other sources won't show on the Video tab. You have to go to the Apps tab, open the Gallery App, and you'll find the video there and should be able to play it if it is formatted properly.

Where are these movies coming from? It's possible they're not formatted for the Fire, or that they are encrypted. The MP4 format still allows a lot of variation. What kind of message do you get when you try to play them?

I have removed the movies from my Kindle and reloaded them and now they play fine, my friend has done the same with the same result.
