I'd be more than happy to assist you. A few things you'll want to try.

  • Ensure your date and time are set correctly. Settings>Options>Date & Time
  • Try the app again.
  • If that doesn't work, go to APPS, then long press and hold the video app, then select uninstall
  • Now visit the Amazon app store, download the app again.
  • Try launching

If that works great! Please rate my answer. If not, just REPLY back instead of rating so we can keep going!
