3.0 out of 5 stars Good for small screen multi-formats 1 Nov 2012
By D. King

This does play a variety of formats on my Kindle Fire HD, but the larger the screen size the less the software copes.

I used the related software to download an HD mp4 music video from YouTube. The download is fine, but this A8 software puts the video and audio out of sync. The video doesn't run at full speed. However, the downloaded video views fine using the app that comes with the Kindle HD.

So, this A8 video player is fine for mp4 and non-mp4 files, providing the screen size and quality is not too high.

I had to download this to make the various websites and videos work on my Kindle Fire HD. I don't know how to use it but I can now view some videos and images on websites and blogs on the Kindle.

I tried uninstalling it and the problems with the Kindle returned until I reinstalled.

It is cheap and it seems to work whatever it does. That's all I can say.

I had been looking for a video player for a while and any I tried had a problem of some kind or another but this works well with any video file extension and has not crashed yet.

2.0 out of 5 stars Fairly basic
A fairly basic player, missing some of the controls you'd expect from media players these days. Rather disappointing and not really worth it.
