One way is to use a file management app like ESFileExplorer, navigate to the movie file (wherever you pasted it) and select it. ESFileExplorer will ask you which app to open the movie with. Select which app and the movie starts.

Yes I know, its kluge and cluncky like most things associated with the pitiful Fire interface and OS. The Fire does fairly well with Amazon purchased content, but it is can be a PITA with non-Amazon content.

As Katie said, when you sideload your own videos onto the Kindle Fire, they don't show up under "videos". That is apparently just for Amazon.

Instead, they go into the icon that looks like the movie clapper.
