    Google play is offering a couple movies I want to see for rent, but not for purchase. Amazon has the same movies for purchase for $1-$2 more.
    Is it possible to view Amazon movies on the Nexus 10?
    I've searched for an answer, but the only thing I can find is numerous links to "video converter software" for sale. I don't really want to jump through a bunch
    of hoops just to watch a couple movies.

    TIA

    As of right now, You cannot without side loading flash and doing it from the browser. Amazon is suppose to release their amazon video app at some point. I'm huge with amazon myself, So hopefully this happens soon.

    Sorry for such a noob question, but how would I go about doing that?
    Would I need to convert the movie after d/ling (not sure what format Amazon uses)?
    Not quite clear on how to transfer to tablet or where I would put the file.

    Thanks

    This link is blocked at my work but from google it mentions that the file formats are mp4 and something else which I can't read cause I can't open the link. If they're in mp4 it would be as easy as downloading the file on your computer then plugging in your N10 as a USB device and dropping the movie in your movie folder. I've done this with other mp4's that I have.

    How to Convert Downloaded Amazon Video to ASUS Transformer Prime --- instructions on how to download a movie from Amazon to your pc and then convert it to a format that can be played on Android tablets (the conversion program is free.)

    Transferring from your computer to tablet is fairly easy and can be done two ways:
    1. via wifi if they are both on the same network (may take some time to set that up)
    or, easier:
    2. connect your tablet to your computer via the cable. this will let your computer "use" the tablet like an external memory stick. drag and drop converted movie from computer to tablet.

    As to where to put the file -- make a folder in your tablet (maybe call it 'Movies' or something )... then (using the explorer on your computer), drag the converted movie from computer to the new folder you created.

    I use MX Player (free in Play Store) to watch movies, videos, etc -- once you open the app, set it to retrieve 'Movie's folder... if you always drop your stuff to this folder, MX Player will always find them.

    If you have DVDs you want to convert -- I wholeheartedly recommend look at a program for your computer called DVD_Catalyst... it's about $10... it's fast, robust, and converts movie to about a bazillion different formats if needed.

    Side loading is when you install an app by downloading it outside of the Play Store. You have to enable installation of unknown sources(your device will prompt you to do so when attempting to install a downloaded APK)

    I believe it is possible to do with Boat Browser (in Google play store). Flash works well in Boat browser mini. It is an overall good browser but I only use the browser when I run in to Flash content on Chrome.

    Update: I was able to watch videos on Amazon using Boat Browser mini but not Boat Browser.
