How to convert & play AVI on Kindle Fire (HD/HDX)?

Does Kindle Fire HD play AVI files? Well, with the new Kindle Fire HD, are you able to download already existing AVIs onto the device to watch them? I have many AVI movies that are ripped from my DVD collections, and I'd like to transfer them to the Kindle Fire for playback. What should I do so that I can download AVIS onto my Kindle Fire? Thanks.



If you look at the product page of Kindle Fire, you will see these are the formats that Amazon Kindle Fire (HD/HDX) supports:
"Kindle (AZW), KF8, TXT, PDF, unprotected MOBI, PRC natively, Audible Enhanced format (AAX), DOC, DOCX, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, Dolby Digital (AC-3), Dolby Digital Plus (E-AC-3), non-DRM AAC, MP3, MIDI, PCM/WAVE, OGG, WAV, M4V, MP4, AAC LC/LTP, HE-AACv1, HE-AACv2, MKV, AMR-NB, AMR-WB, HTML5, CSS3, 3GP, VP8 (WEBM)"


Anything you have not in one of those formats will need to be converted. Obviously, AVI is not included in Kindle Fire compatible formats. Therefore, AVI cannot be played directly on Kindle Fire. So to speak, if you really need to get AVI files onto Kindle Fire for viewing, you will have to convert them into one of Kindle Fire friendly file types on your computer. How? Well, below is the step-by-step guide showing you how to effectively convert & transfer AVI onto Kindle Fire (HD/HDX) for playing. Read on.
