About Flash Videos on Kindle Fire

Adobe Flash isn't supported in the Silk browser, but you may be able to view Adobe Flash videos using these tips.

Adobe is no longer developing Flash for mobile devices. To learn more, go to Adobe's website to view their announcement. Due to this, the Silk Browser on Kindle Fire devices does not have Adobe Flash support. If you see an error message, a Flash plugin icon, or an option to redirect to a non-Flash or mobile version of the page you're viewing, this may mean that the website uses Adobe Flash.

If you're unable to view a website with Flash content, you can switch to mobile view to see if that solves your problem:

  1. From the Silk web browser, tap the Menu icon at the bottom of the screen.
  2. Tap Request Another View and then tap Mobile.

Some popular websites may also have an app available. Check the Amazon Appstore, accessible through the Apps or Games library on your device, for availability.
