Vudu on Fire TV – September 2017

Back in the spring, I found out how to get vudu to work for movies/tv on the fire tv/stick. Works great! Need to rent or buy from another device but can browse and play your whole collection.

Updated instructions for OneDrive use since dropbox and es file explorer dont work together at the moment

Installer link.

    1. As I’m trying to load my VUDU app, I’m being told I need to update it yet when I hit “update now” I’m taken to a screen that asks if I want to continue to the Amazon Appstore. When I hit continue it then tells me the app is not found. Any update files coming?

      1. You are looking at the newest file, that I referenced in this post? https://www.dropbox.com/s/vrcglnthoysy8p1/air.com.vudu.air.DownloaderTablet_4.1.20.46605-1186605_minAPI21%28armeabi-v7a%29%28nodpi%29.apk?dl=0 I just updated my instructions to this a few days ago due to the version I was using before requiring update, this is the update from June that I have had success with (though I am at work right now, not sure if something changed in the last day).

          1. Another user just used One Drive instead of Dropbox, same instructions otherwise, see if that works?

          2. I started using the box app and it works to transfer the files just fine to es explorer but it still saying you need to update the app

          3. Can you confirm completely uninstall the existing copy of vudu. Delete any APK regarding VUDU from your directories dropbox etc. Restart Fire TV, Redownload and copy to your fire tv. Reinstall from scratch? Maybe some residual files?

      1. Rose, the video is 5 minutes long, Hopefully getting through the 5 minute video gives you what you need, otherwise report back! Thanks!

  1. I’m having an issue accessing dropbox on my firestick. It won’t even load the authorization page to log in.

    It tries to load for a second then says:

    Network issue cannot load authorization page. Try again later.

    Although I’ve been trying for days now and get the same error message

    Any fixes for this?

    1. I had some issue like that originally, it was resolved by reinstalling es file explorer. maybe check this outside link? if you are still having tough luck, I will try to keep thinking about what I did to resolve if there was somethinge else.

  2. I used One Drive and it worked great but only plays SD movies, not HDX. Get error -“Encountered problems during playback”. 🙁

  3. I got the same update message and finally just hit uninstall and reinstalled the latest link you provided above using the cloud. Works fine now – thanks again!

  4. This doesn’t work the same way as the older version did for 1st gen Fire TV boxes and sticks. The old version would allow you to play any title in SD. The new version will only play the titles you own in SD. HDX titles will always show an error message when selected.

    1. I am sorry, I havent had a chance to look into filtering it. I pinned a comment by Y2Bogus to my older video that explains the lack of compatibility, but I am not sure about filtering.

  5. Hi sorry if you helped resolve this in earlier posts but I’m no good with tech issues. I am having an issue when I want to add Dropbox to the es file explorer. I get an error message “network issue, can not load auth page, try again later” I have uninstalled es file explorer and reloaded. I was able to add OneDrive but I don’t have enough space on OneDrive to go that route. I have iPhone if that info helps. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you! Heather

    1. Hey! Welcome to YourTechTips! Yeah, they dropped dropbox support in ES File Explorer. Maybe make more space on your one drive, or refer a “friend”, your other email address? Can you do these steps from an iphone? how does onedrive and downloading a file work? Can you try from a desktop/laptop/android? Try one of the other cloud options listed in es file explorer? box is a good service, havent tried it for this. Let me know if this helps, thanks!
