    Kindle question

    I have a new kindle and I am having issues watching videos. As an example, in Redoleary's thread, if I click on the video, a new page opens up, but it stalls out at that point. If I click on his YouTube site link in his signature, I get the appropriate YouTube home page and can watch his videos with no problem. The same goes with other embed video links in other threads. If the poster does not have a link to their YouTube channel, finding the correct video can be a challenge since screen names and YouTube channel names don't always match.

    Has anyone else had this problem before? If so, is there a fix?

    Thanks in advance,
    STinGa

    I have used "Kindle" help assistance, and they can be very quick to respond.
    Good luck with your problem.

    I love Kindles, but they can be a hassle when trying to watch videos. You might be able to find a clever fix, or use a different browser, but I gave up trying to find a fix for every little video problem, and go with youtube.

    I had a similar problem with playing videos on forums when I first got my Samsung tablet. I installed Google Chrome and started using that as my browser...problem solved.
