    “This is the correction of what has been, up to now, a major problem with Amazon Instant , you could only watch videos on your smart TV or computer… not an iPad.”

    not really.. you could watch everything from Amazon on Xbox 360, PS3, computers, Android tablets, Kindle Fire, Roku and other media streamers and so on. The only place you couldn’t watch the Amazon Prime Videos and your library is on iPad/iPhone and that’s because of Apple not because of Amazon. If you had Flash you could have watched it too or if Apple wasn’t anti-competitive you could have had the app a long time ago.

    But now, since people are buying other tablets left and right because they can’t do things like this Apple is forced to allow it. You will still do it in a retarded way where you will have to buy your stuff in a browser and then watch it on iPad. Great experience.

    So try not to put blame on Amazon. It’s all Apple buddy.

    I don’t have a problem playing any videos with this app on my iPad. If you do, perhaps it has an issue with model maybe? However, AirPlay is not working properly. You can get audio but the video stays on your iPad. The watch ESPN app has the same problem, and people who’ve looked into that seem to think it’s the choice of the app maker. You can get around but using airplay mirroring which will play everything on your TV, however it doesn’t show everything in the right aspect ratios. So that’s more for kludge than a real fix for the in-app AirPlay issue.

    Install xCon from the Cydia market and it will allow the app to work. Amazon blocks jailbroken devices apparently… :(

    Even with fullscreen AirPlay Mirroring enabled with this new Amazon Instant Video app, all it sends is the audio, not the video.
