Hi.
Now that Amazon Prime streaming has started in the UK is there a way to give us the option to choose the database on amazon.co.uk instead?

Potentially possible. Amazon doesn't make it easy to get the list of available titles. It has to be done by scrubbing the website. To get just the UK titles I would need to log into Amazon as a UK user using a UK proxy IP. All technically doable. I'll do some research into it.

There is no way to do that right now. The only way to play back Amazon movies at this time is via the AV Agent using the Silverlight player in Internet Explorer.

Hi, did anything come of this?
As a UK Prime subscriber would be really cool to get this working

Thanks!

Haven't done anything with this yet because we have not see a demand. The same issues apply. I need to proxy to a UK Amazon url and scrape the website looking for the available titles. Now that I know you're looking for this feature I'll put it back on the active list.

Thinking about trying this since I signed up for prime. Does this work with windows 10 since no internet explorer on the operating system?

Thanks.

I'm working on an update for Amazon since they changed their website and my scraper is currently broken. Windows 10 will work as it will use the Edge browser for playback.

Not yet - is on my list to work on this weekend. You will get the current database but it is stale. You will not see the latest content available from Amazon.

Dave,

Is Amazon app supposed to be working, or are you still updating it? I am trying it out, and get a black screen instead of picture.

Thanks

There is an Amazon update coming very soon. It will not work well in its current state.
