The Kindle Fire HD's beautiful 1,280x800-pixel screen is great for watching movies.

FAQ, Tips, Tricks & Tools for Enjoying Movies on Kindle Fire HD
Q: MKV on Kindle Fire HD? - I recently got my kindle fire HD 7" and was disappointed to find no mkv support which just wont do. I got my the departed blu ray rip from my personal collection converted to mkv and with a bit of searching found out cannot genuinely play it with mx video player or moboplayer. Any suggestion for playing MKV HD videos on Kindle Fire HD?
A: As you see, MKV is an open standard free container format, a file format can hold an unlimited number of video, audio, picture, or subtitle tracks in one file. The reason you cannot successfully get MKV videos playable on your Kindle Fire HD is quite simple: the default and downloaded player on the Kindle Fire HD cannot find a suitable decoder for the codec in the MKV file. To get your work done, the best solution is to convert MKV to Kindle Fire HD supported video format along with some help from third-party softwares. Take the following as reference:

Q: Play xvid/avi movies on Kindle Fire HD?
Is the VLC Media Player or Cinexplayer available for the Kindle Fire HD? Or any other app that will allow xvid/avi movie files to be played? Thanks.
A: Here is my Kindle Fire HD solution – converting AVI files before transferring the AVI videos to Kindle Fire HD Tablets. Ad you can follow the guide guide to get your AVI files work on on your Fire HD tablet.
Q: Kindle Fire HD Tablet - wmv and Vob compatible?
Noticed in the list of supported formats there wasn't that many Video formats listed including one of the most popular wmv or indeed VoB files for DVD quality etc , so can you not copy your wmv or vob's over to the Kindle Fire HD from your PC and watch them then?
A: if you've taken a glance on the supported media types of the Amazon Tablets, it's easy to find that the Kindle Fire HD video format is limited as other tablets like Nook HD Tablet. Thus, you may have a hard time playing movies formatted in wmv files. Besides, there lots of other formats (VOB, MPG, TS, TiVo, etc) that the Kindle Fire HD does not support. In that case, to play these videos on Kindle Fire HD, we need to convert them to H.264 or MPEG-4 encoded format first. Here I would share with you a good way that ends up with optimal video conversion for kindle fire hd for movie fans.
Q: I just bought a new Kindle Fire HD and I am wondering if I could play music files I purchased on iTunes on my Kindle Fire HD? I have searched around the internet but I haven't got a specific answer to this question. Besides, the movies and TV-shows I have purchased on iTunes will be playable on my kindle?
A: Before answering your question, keep in mind that the Android powered Kindle Fire HD can not play any iTunes purchases with Apple Digital Rights Management (FairPlay DRM). However, all iTunes songs (at least in the US) will be DRM-free in steps since April 7, 2009. From my experience, if the song isn't copy protected it should play. For the little copyrighted iTunes songs, in .m4p format, you can upgrade these songs to DRM-free files for US$0.30/song or use DRM removal softwareto strip DRM from them.
For iTunes videos, if they are video podcasts from iTunes, you can play them on your Kindle Fire HD without any problem. But if they are Movies, TV-shows or Music videos which you purchased directly through iTunes store, they are all with DRM protection which prevent you playing them on your Kindle Fire HD. To get the iTunes DRM m4v files and Kindle Fire HD to play nicely, you can follow a simple tutorial below:
Q: Best Software to rip DVD to Kindle Fire HD?
I'm traveling again next week and was hoping to rip some dvds onto my Kindle Fire HD for the trip. I have a few questions for the community experts:
Any suggestions on some easy to use, reliable software?
Any tips for the best format to use?
A: DVD Ripping software varies. If you're looking for ease-to-use and don't mind spending $24.5 (they currently have a sale), you can try Pavtube's DVD Ripper to convert DVD discs to a format playable by Kindle Fire HD. To be honest, It is easy to use for editing and conversion and makes great quality copies of my DVDs. I've found the quality to be excellent, and see no difference when compared to playing the discs themselves.
The best format is H.264 MP4 causes it gives the balance between the file size and video quality.
