Is there any way to watch Amazon Instant Videos on a Nook HD?

I just went through the rigamorole of creating a bootable CM10 SD card. However, when I finally got that and gapps installed, and went to the Amazon Instant Video app, it told me that the app wasn't supported on my device

So, has anyone else thought of a way to do this?

Thanks!

You should be able to watch it on Amazon's website through the browser, like on your PC.

Hmmm... I'll try that. I guess I was thinking the quality wouldn't be as good as on a dedicated app. I'll report back....

The quality is SD as it is when watched on PC which is one of the reasons I cancelled it - Netflix doesn't doesn't have this restriction.

From Amazon: "HD movie playback is limited to Kindle Fire HD, Xbox 360, PS3, Roku, TIVO, or other Amazon Instant Video HD compatible devices."

Mobile HD compatible devices = Kindle HD and Apple products only

Why do they support iCrap and not Nook? What kind of favoritism is that? Does Amazon figure they're just not any competition to Apple and throw in the towel?

Makes me frustrated how the whole world caters to Apple. Well, I'm glad the rest of the world can afford their overpriced stuff!

Would B&N even allow an app from Amazon into their store? I don't know the answer, but I'm a bit doubtful since they're trying to compete for book and now video sales.

I just wish Amazon would get off their ass and release a regular Android app for their video stuff.

I'm sure you're right. It's probably all B&N trying to force their limited ecosystem on us Nook owners.

Because iOS is not Android. Amazon's biggest competitors are other Android tablets and they're not about to give up the last advantage they have over them - video content.

There is an Amazon Instant Video app for Android, but it is only available for certain LG tv's (running Google TV). They are pretty focussed on set top boxes, including game consoles (even wii).

If AIV is not more generally available, consider that Apple represents 70 per cent of the tablet market, and Fire is half of what is left, leaving a still very diverse range of devices running various versions of Android. I think it took Netflix a year to deliver official support for tablets. Offering more broad Android support is probably on Amazon's roadmap, but they probably don't register much demand for it so it is low priority. And obviously it isn't ever going to be in the Nook App store.

I can watch AIV on my Xoom, because I have a browser that hosts Flash. While it is probably possible to create such an environment on Nook HD, I would not recommend it: not very stable.

I don't think it's about the operating system at all. Amazon is selling a service, not an operating system. I agree with AnemicOak that it's B&N that's keeping Amazon stuff off the Nooks. Apple has nothing to lose (yet), they have the most popular eco-system. So, why not let iPad owners watch Amazon flicks.

B&N on the other hand have everything to lose. They're trying to build their eco-system and having Amazon undercut them on their content isn't going to help.

That doesn't explain why there's no Android app for Amazon Instant Videos.

No, it doesn't and while Apple may still have a lead in the tablet market there's the whole phone market to consider too. I'm pretty sure Android has a lead there, yet still no app. The thing is they already have done the dev work on an Android app in order to get it on the Fire on Google TV.

I think it's a deliberate move by Amazon to keep their videos off of other mobile Android devices.

Outside of apps, Amazon has the best content out there. Adding AIV to my Nexus 7 would make it a better Fire HD than the original.
