If you are Amazon Kindle Fire HD user, you will find it hard to view the flash contents (like videos from youtube.com, cnn.com, bbcnews.com, cbsnews.com, etc.) on this tablet. Because Adobe Flash doesn’t support Android 4.X any more, you cannot find the Flash Player in the Play Store. Then how can I play flash on Kindle Fire HD? Below are two easy ways for this task, just read on for details:
Method 1. Use Amazon Silk Web Browser to View Flash Content
Flash is supported on Amazon Silk but is disabled by default. If you see a message to install Flash while using your Kindle Fire, this means that the content you are attempting to view is a Flash file. If you would like to open the file, you will need to enable Flash through your Silk Settings menu.
Step 1. With the Amazon Silk web browser open, tap the menu icon at the bottom of the screen, then tap Settings.
Step 2. Tap the arrow next to Enable Flash and select your preferred behavior: “Always on,” “On demand,” or “Off.”
If you haven’t updated your Kindle Fire to the latest software version available, this setting can be accessed by tapping “Enable plug-ins.” To update your Kindle Fire to the latest software version, visit http://www.amazon.com/kindlesoftwareupdates.
Method 2. Convert and Transfer Flash Videos to Kindle Fire HD for Playing
If Kindle Fire Silk browser is not working, or it crashes or breeze, you could try Flash Video Converter for Kindle Fire HD, which convert flash FLV, F4V(Adobe released F4V video format after FLV which is a kind of high definition video encoded in H.264, i.e. YouTube) to Kindle Fire Mp4 directly with good quality.
Step 1. Download and install Flash to Kindle Fire HD Converter Mac from here, launch it and add your flash videos by clicking “Add Fire”.
Step 2. Choose output format for Kindle Fire HD MP4, or other Kindle Fire supported video formats like H.263 (.3gp, .mp4), H264 AVC (.3gp, .mp4), MPEG 4 SP/ASP (.3gp), VP8 (.webm)
