    Hello All
    Sorry to ask again as lost my previous post?
    Trying again to load VLC player but having no joy, can't even see it
    Do i need an xtra app to load it or has it gone off
    Got downloader so i guess an apk would help
    Regards
    Idledawn

    there is some sort of dispute between videolan and amazon... videolan have a new version of vlc, but amazon wont allow it until a bug in the old one is fixed... videolan say they are not going to fix a bug in the old version as it is fixed in the old one and have withdrawn it from the app store.... or something like that, its complicated
    I downloaded the apk and sideloaded it

    The reason i wanted vlc was, as ive used some apps for vod /iptv
    Its requests how to play & what player. Obviously no player/ no play
    I was just familiar with vlc, however just loaded gse/ perfect player & opening vod is playing via these options
    So i guess i can use these also
    Thanx for reply
    Regards idledawn

    This is sort of related. If you are looking to side load app onto fire stick/tv install an app called Apps2Fire on any android device, you can then install what ever app you have on that android device onto the fire tv/stick
