Wow! and double Wow! – If you want to keep up with the “bleeding” edge of 7″ Android tablets – the announcement of the third generation of Kindle Fire-the all-new Kindle Fire HDX 7(along with the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9-inch)- has got to be interesting news.

When you got the new Amazon Kindle Fire HDX tablet, what you will do next? Personally, I will add my personal video/movie collection to my Fire HD to cancel my leisure time. No matter which model of Kindle Fire HDX(7.0/8.9) you have, I’ve got some suggestions and short guides to help you get MKV files playable on Kindle Fire HDX smoothly.

As MKV is not a default format for Kindle Fire HDX, what you can do is to find a third-party video player to installed and try to get a files played. Some DTS encoded MKV files are not supported well yet with a 3rd party video player app. An alternative method is to convert MKV to Kindle Fire HDX playable format .i.e H.264 MP4.

Brorsoft Video Converter(Click here if you are a Mac user.) is the tool I’m using. Fast and smooth performance. It helps me batch convert 5+ MKV videos to a Kindle Fire HDX readable MP4 video. It’s freely to adjust the video, audio parameters to get a decent output video that I want.

First, download and install the MKV to Kindle Fire HDX Converter and launch it to add the MKV files.


Secondly, click the “Format” drop down list and choose Android >> Amazon Kindle Fire HD H.264(*.mp4) as target format for your Fire HDX 8.9/7.0 tablet.


Thirdly, tap the “Settings” icon and you can adjust codec, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate and audio channel in the interface according to your needs and optimize the output file quality. In usual, 1280*720 video size, 1000~2000 video bitrate is proper.


Finally, hit the big Convert button, the 1080p MKV to Kindle Fire HDX MP4 conversion will be started immediately. Follow the conversion process by the pop-up windows.

If you have other media files like DVD, Blu-ray library, AVI, MTS, MPG, VOB, TiVo, etc HD videos for transferring to Amazon’s new Kindle Fire HDX, you can try the package tool Brorsoft’s Blu-ray Video Converter Ultimate or the iMedia Video Converter for Mac users.
