It is obvious that the best movie video formats for Kindle Fire are MP4 (with MPEG codec), M4V, Webm, 3GP and MKV, and for Kindle Fire HD and HDX MKV and MP4 (with H264 codec). Among them, MKV is the most common high definition video, MP4 and M4V are applied to Apple, both MP4 and WebM videos can be downloaded from YouTube, and 3GP/3G2 videos are used on 3G mobile phones yet playable on some 2G and 4G phones. And MP4 is highly recommended for its easy availability, high compatibility, great compression rate and especially amazing video quality.

How to Make Your Videos Most Suitable for Playing on Kindle Fire

- I want to copy my own videos to the kindle fire. I tried ripping it with handbrake to m4v an mp4. Neither has worked. Anyone know how to convert video for the fire?

- I've tried Handbrake and a few videos that were already in .mp4 format, but neither has worked. I think the specific codecs the Fire requires aren't that common. Anyone found a good conversion program they've actually used?
