Have been using Amazon Video on my PB. However, just ran into a problem. When streaming Amazon Prime instant video (I'm a Prime member) still works fine. Recently however videos I've paid for in my Video library won't stream. Comes up with a message to wit: "Playback Error Sorry we were unable to stream this video. This is likely because your Flash Player needs to be updated."
Spoke to Amazon Prime customer support. Nice lady, but said the only tablet they support is Kindle Fire. This really, really sucks. Clearly, they made a recent change as I've had no problems since I got the Playbook for Christmas. Don't know if I'm pissed at Amazon or RIM. I think more Amazon since it looks like they've made a decision to only support the Kindle. Heck I agreed to pay $80 or so a year for Amazon Prime. Cancelled that, of course. I guess they want to sell Kindles more than they want to sell Prime memberships.
Grabbed some free vids from Amazon and the player freezes and says my flash needs to be updated on my PB. Watched an episode of MI5 last night without a hitch. Frustrated i cant use my PB tonight... Thoughts?
Yep. There are problems again with flash. Other people are having problems to with amazon and other flash movie sites.
Not sure how the problem was resolved last time. I've been good for about a month till just a couple of days ago.
