    From some reading & searching, it looks like they've pretty well locked down the lending library to Kindle devices.

    Yeah, that's all I've found as well. Just hoping someone may have a workaround. Ah, well, more of my money stays in my pocket.

    If you are still on this forum, could you explain to a pre-novice how to do this? Firefox beta no longer accepts flash, so that leaves xScope. I know to go to Google Play to download Xscope. Then what? Once it is all installed how do I get the movie from Amazon Prime on here?

    I use the non beta version of firefox. I also downloaded Adobe Flash Player 11.1 APK for Android Phones & Tablets. It took no additional set-up.



    Prior to this set-up, I couldn't view Amazon Prime movies. Now I can by visiting Amazon and viewing it just like I do with my laptop browser.

    Works fine for me with Flash side-loaded and xScope. I wonder if this setup will still work after 4.2 comes out.

    potential easy workaround = buy a $79 kindle reader (or a nicer one), download your book, xfer it to any other device or read it on the kindle.

    I prefer reading on the kindle anyway, easier on the eyes and the battery lasts a lot longer.

    Cannot get full screen button on Amazon prime videos to work. Any ideas?

    How do you get the movie to properly fit in the N7's screen display? The full screen icon does not work for me. Thanks.

    Mine is the 16gb Nexus 7 sold by Office depot. I think it upgraded itself to a newer version of jellybean. I added Firefox as an additional browser since Chrome is reputed
    not to work with flash. (I don't really know what I am saying or what it means, but I think that is right info)

    Yeah and it is *y of them. I pay for my membership and should be able to get a free book a month on any device that has a Kindle app. NOT JUST A KINDLE!!!!

    Doesn't really matter where you bought it - a N7 is the same whether it comes from Office Depot, Staples, Walmart, or straight from Google. You are correct that Chrome does not support flash, the plugin that plays certain web content, including the videos on Amazon Prime Instant Video.

    I uninstalled Firefox from mine, so I can't check if full screen works on mine. I use Xscope Pro for my flash website needs.

    It'd be nice if they made it available to anyone, but they want to sell devices, so I can understand why they do it. And it is the "Kindle Owners' Lending Library", so it's right in the name.

    The lending library has always been on Kindle devices only. At one time it didn't even work on the Fire, but I think it does now. I can understand their point of view...they're using it as a reason for folks to buy a Kindle. It's about the only time I use my Kindle any more. These days I much prefer reading on my Nexus.

    OK, I am trying to reach conclusions about Amazon VIDEOS. I am computer-literate but a bit of an old--school newbie on mobile devices. I am deciding between buying a Nexus 7 and a Fire HD. To sum up some of the posts here:

    a) On an N7, one can watch streaming Amazon Prime content by loading non-beta Firefox and Adobe Flash (or xScope & Flash). I assume this is both Prime Instant Video (free with Amazon Prime), and purchased videos.
    b) 1 or 2 people are having problems getting full-screen to work, not clear to me on which browsers they are having problems, or which ones are not.
    c) One can download Amazon purchased videos to a Fire, or to a PC using the Amazon "Unbox" app. Not to anything else (I learned all this from the Amazon site). Does anyone know if you can take a file downloaded to Unbox on the PC and move it to a N7 to play? Or maybe I should just rely on a laptop for airplane viewing.
    d) One cannot download Prime Instant Videos (free with Amazon Prime) to any device, Nexus or Fire (I learned this from the Amazon site).

    Please confirm or correct me. Thank you!

    Now I am trying to reach conclusions about Amazon Books. I am deciding between buying a Nexus 7 and a Fire HD. To sum up some of the posts here:

    a) I can download and read purchased digital books from Amazon on any device using the Kindle for Android app. I don't know if it can be downloaded/moved from one device to another.
    b) I can download and listen to purchased spoken books on the N7 (or my Razor Maxx) through the Audible for Android app.
    c) One cannot access the Amazon Kindle Lending Library books except on a Kindle.

    Please confirm or correct me. Thank you!

    a) Amazon e-books can be downloaded onto multiple devices at once. I don't recall what the limit is, but I haven't had any issues with downloading books to my Kindle and an additional two devices at the same time. I hit the limit once when I switched phones, but was able to download the books after I deauthorized my old phone through Amazon's web site.

    c) That is correct. I still have my e-ink Kindle 2 so I can access the lending library.

    The limit is set by the publisher so it varies. Some are unlimited, some are limited to 5 devices, etc.

    I have a Kindle Touch, 2 Fires, my phone and my N7 on my amazon account. I've not run into a limit yet on what books I can deliver to devices (but there may be one). There is a hard limit of two devices on movies that you buy and you can only use the lending library on a kindle device. I cannot get a lending library book on my N7.

    You do not need to do anything special to download amazon videos onto a Fire device. You never touch the unboxing app. You just pick to download the movie on your Fire. If you're in the Amazon ecosystem and wish to use Android, get the Fire HD. I would love a Nexus 7 but until Amazon releases their Prime video app for Android, I'm not making the jump.

    Firefox did not work fullscreen for me. But I downloaded XScope browser (it ended up costing I think $2), as it was the only one that worked. After installing flash and using that browser, it worked!
