Kindle Fire - Working!

Postby woodchuck » Wed Nov 16, 2011 4:14 am

WOW, after a few more tweaks, this app really runs well on the Kindle! Honestly there isn't much I would change now! Here are the steps to install, and some notes at the bottom for optimizing it so it purrs like a kitten!

Here is how to get Remote Media Player working on the Kindle Fire:

1) On a rooted Android Phone (SGSII, in my case), install Remote Media Player, Daroon Player, and Root Explorer.
2) On the Android Phone, use Root Explorer to navigate to /data/app (may vary based on Android version).
3) Using email, send these two files to an email account that your Kindle has been setup to retrieve: tv.dyndns.piet5211.remotepotatoclient-1.apk, com.daroonsoft.player-1.apk
4) On your Kindle, goto Settings--> Device, and set Allow Installation of Applications From Unknown Sources to ON.
5) On your Kindle, install "Easy Installer" from the Amazon App Store
6) Now, from the Kindle, retrieve your email that includes the two applications from step 3.
7) Save the applications, don't attempt to open them from the email.
8) Go to the Easy Installer app from from above, and install the two application you saved.
9) Configure Remote Media Player and you are ready to go!!!

IT WORKS! Thanks for the help Madman999!

Additional Notes:
-Change the font size in RMP under settings->custom buttons to "Custom Buttons, Big Text"
-Daroon Player exits with wanting to save the stream. This can be disabled in Daroon Player's settings
-Change Settings-> EPG Settings-> Channels per Block to 20. This will keep the guide page loads smooth. Any less and you will get partial page loads.
-Setup favorites in Remote Potato admin settings. Enable in RMP for better guide performance.
-WOL works. You can install it using the same basic steps above. I installed "WoL Wake On Lan WAN". It is not available in the Amazon store. I like this one because it doesn't require you to modify the settings in RMP.

Daroon player worked!!! I can now stream video to the Fire!!! NICE!

It is a little clunky in a number of ways, but, hey, it works for now! I'll try and document the procedure better when I get back from lunch. I do plan to have a few beers, so my explanation might not be so good...

Is there any plan to make the package available for direct download from the Amazon app store? I don't have another Android device to copy from.

i agree . I am really hoping a version will be forthcoming for the Kindle Fire. I also do not have another Android device (rooted or otherwise) and would willing pay again (have the Iphone app) for a Kindle Fire version. Ill beta test too!!

This is great.
Streams cleaner and renders better than the iPad!

Is there a link to directly download the apk? I don't have another Android device...I would happily PayPal the app creator with some funds even though this is a free app.

I rooted my Kindle, installed google apps, downloaded Remote Media Center and MX Plyer with arm 7 codec. No issues.

I am new to Android and my Kindle Fire. I asked a friend with an Android phone to go through this procedure, but he was a bit baffled, and I could not help much. Could I ask a great favor, and have you email the two apk files to me at davidkaplan_at_yahoo.com? I would be sincerely grateful!

Thanks
