RealPlayer Cloud is now available on Kindle Fire

by Rishi Mathew on October 24, 2013

We have BIG news!! We’ve just announced that RealPlayer Cloud is now available on Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD. You can get this free app in the Amazon App Store in the U.S. and Canada.
Kindle Fire is one of the leading Android tablets in the North American market. Amazon’s recent launches of Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD combined with a bevy of customer requests for the RealPlayer Cloud app on Kindle made this launch a no-brainer. You can get it here:

I use tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab2 with Android.
It is very interesting how RealPlayer Cloud will work with this tablet.

I have a Kindle Fire (running version 6.3.2.). When I try to download the RealPlayer app from Amazon I receive the message that the app is not compatible with my device. What should I do to install the app?

It sounds like you are using the 1st generation of Kindle Fire. However, RealPlayer Cloud is now available for the Kindle Fire second generation or later (through the Amazon Appstore). I am sorry for any inconvenience. If you need further assistance, please send an email to

Sorry for the trouble. In order to troubleshoot this issue effectively, I will need you to provide the following information:

- What were you expecting to see/experience that you aren’t?
- What are you seeing/experiencing that you weren’t expecting?
- Are you connected to wifi or local network?
- Are you on your own wifi network or someone else’s?
- Have you made any changes to your RealPlayer preferences? Confirm what they are.
- Is your local network set with device limitations? (limited number of devices allowed to connect at any one given time)
- What version of RealPlayer is installed?

To find the version:

a. Open the RealPlayer software.
b. From the RealPlayer menu in the upper left, choose “Help” option.
c. Choose “About RealPlayer” inside the “Help” menu. A window opens.
d. Provide the information listed beside “Version” near the top of the “About RealPlayer” window. These numbers indicate the version of RealPlayer currently installed on the computer (i.e. “RealPlayer″ or “RealPlayer″).

The more specific you are, the better I will be able to assist you.

What video formats does Real Player support for direct broadcasting to ChromeCast?
I have an AVI video I couldn’t play directly on my Kindle Fire without uploading to the RealPlayer Cloud to convert.

13 Brinton Felixraja June 1, 2014 at 3:26 am

If your videos are in a different format, or if the video bitrate is higher than 14 mbps, they will need to be uploaded to the Cloud first so we can convert them to a supported format for casting.

I have put realplayer on my kindle fire hd, when I login with my Facebook account, as I have on my other devices, it’s saying not authorized!!

Sorry for the trouble.

To resolve the issue, please follow the below mentioned steps:

Solution 1: Check your connection.

Make sure that you are on a Wi-Fi connection and that airplane mode is turned off.

Solution 2: Restart the application.

Sometimes, just closing the application and re-starting it can resolve the issue.

Solution 3: Clear the RealPlayer cache.

Try clearing the RealPlayer cache by following these steps:

1. Go to Menu and click Settings.

2. Select Applications.

3. Click Manage Applications.

4. Click RealPlayer; and inside the Application Info screen, click Clear Cache.

Solution 4: Uninstall and reinstall the application.

Please read this article for more instructions:

If that does not resolve the issue, please send an email to

I’m not tech savvy at all! Please bare with me! I see so many people being rude so to save you mean people some time…. I know I’m am idiot blah blah blah! What I need to know is how I can stream from my phone (Nokia Lumia 530) uses Windows 8. I got a chromecast for my tv and want to use Netflix and popcorn time. Been trying to figure out how but so many sites say you can’t and other said you can… Can you help me?

At this time, RealPlayer Cloud App is not available for Windows Phones (Lumia Phones). We are in the process of expanding the compatibility to all available devices, so I hope you will check again later.

Please check our knowledge base for more information:

To cast/stream, I recommend you to contact Chromecast Customer Support.

Oops, sorry. I turned Wi-Fi off, opened the app again and it was there and able to play. Love it so far, just takes me time to figure things out.
