A way to watch Blu-ray movies on Kindle Fire HDX with subtitles


Perfect-color display, plus powerful quad-core processor for fast, fluid performance and immersive entertainment, the new Kindle Fire HDX is a really good device for us. One of the issues that I had to overcome was how to copy Blu-ray movies from disc to the Kindle Fire HDX. Since it does not have a disc drive, I knew that I had to rip and convert the movie into a format that Fire HDX can support, then transfer the ripped video file to Kindle Fire HDX for playback.

After some trying and testing I came up with a solution which I’d like to describe here so that all Kindle owners can benefit from the procedure. First of all, download and install Brorsoft Blu-ray Ripper(or the Mac version)- an ideal Blu-ray Ripper for Kindle Fire HDX. You can use it to rip Blu-ray, DVDs, ISO/IFO to your computer. It is easy to use and can rip any Blu-ray/DVD that you throw at it. So, with it, you can fast convert Blu-ray movies to Kindle Fire HDX best video format MP4 with the best quality. Just download the tool can you can easily finish this task within a few clicks and keep the best video quality.

Converting Blu-ray to Amazon Kindle Fire HDX supported format

Step 1: Load source Blu-ray files

Insert the Blu-ray disc to your Blu-ray drive and launch the best Kindle Fire HDX Blu-ray ripper. Click the disc button to load the Blu-ray movie files. DVD discs, ISO and IFO files are also supported.


Step 2: Select output video format

Click “Format” bar, here I recommend Android >> Amazon Kindle Fire HD H.264(*.mp4) as target format for your Fire HDX 8.9/7.0 tablet with the best video & audio settings.


Step 3: Video/Audio parameter settings

Obviously you’re probably going to have to compromise a bit – you’re not going to get full Blu-ray quality out of your final file unless you only want one video on your tablet… and nothing else. Here 1280*720 video size and 1500~2000kps video bitrate are recommended on this Android tablet.


Step 4: Start conversion

Before start the conversion, you can select subtitles you want for the output movie. And then press the “Convert” button on the main interface to begin ripping Blu-ray to MP4 for Kindle Fire HDX.

After you’ve got the final file transcoded, you need to get it onto your Kindle Fire HDX. Connect the cable that came with your tablet to your computer, and it’ll show up as a device under “My Computer”. Open it, then drag your file in there. Once it’s done copying, you can open your Gallery app – your file should be there. Enjoy!

  2. Hi,
    I’ve done this a few times, though not with bro soft, I think it was handbrake. However, depending on how I convert the movie, I either have NO cpations of FULL captions (i.e. no way to turn on or off). However, if I use VLC player on my computer to play the MP4, I can right click and turn them on and off…I am BETTING that the issue is finding the right PLAYER for the Kindle…any suggestions?

    • Yes, it probably due to the video player app. But why you wanna turn on or off the captions while watching a movie. You’d better perset it. I have a suggestion for you: If you got some foreign languages within your movie, you’d better try to show the forced subitles, that means it will show you subtiltes only while the movies are in a foreign languages, and no any captions in other time. Brorsoft Blu-ray Ripper can help you make it.
