How to Convert and Transfer Videos to Kindle Fire

December 23rd, 2011 by Nicholas Reville
With Miro 4.0.4, released today, you can automatically convert and copy videos and music to Kindle Fire. Here’s how:

1. Open Miro. (Download Miro here if you don’t have it.)

2. Connect your Kindle Fire with a USB cable to your computer and it will appear in the ‘Connect’ tab in Miro.

3. Drag any videos or music to the Kindle Fire in the Miro sidebar and they will automatically convert to the right size and format and sync.

That’s it!

Note that videos that aren’t purchased from Amazon will be viewable in the ‘Gallery’ app on your Kindle Fire, not in the ‘Video’ tab.

we also put together this simple site explaining how it works: Sync Video and Audio to Kindle Fire

    PROBLEMS:

    The link to download Linux is broken in Chrome; leads to an error 500 page at http://www.getmiro.com/download/all/.

    http://www.getmiro.com/download/for-ubuntu/ provides a PPA link that does not work for Oneric.

    The header links on the blog are all fubar. They are relative to the main site.

    Ubuntu has the previous version (4.0.3) n the Universe repository for Oneric.

    This “drag and drop”-to-Kindle Fire feature is not working as expected, for me.
    I have v4.04 on a PC running Win Vista Business x64 , it is open when I install the USB cable to the Kindle Fire and I then see Kindle Fire listed in the Connect area… but: no matter where I drag to (tried everyplace), nothing seems to happen. Probably my fault since this is my first day on Miro, so ANY ideas are welcome. Thanks!

      I had to convert it first before I could drag it. If you use the arrow on the right side & convert it, then a new file will appear that you should be able to drag over.

        Which file do I have to convert it to before I drag it?

        Nadine, that sounds much different from this:

        “3. Drag any videos or music to the Kindle Fire in the Miro sidebar and they will automatically convert to the right size and format and sync.”

        I’ll try your idea in the meantime, thanks for the tip.
