A test of the Kindle Fire HDX and how to convert and transfer MKV, Tivo, VOB, AVI, WMV, MPG, M4V and Flash videos to Kindle Fire HDX.
Kindle Fire HDX Test:
The Kindle Fire HDX suffers from the fate of all slim, small, super-high-resolution tablets, which is so-so battery life. I got 5 hours, 40 minutes playing video with the screen set to full brightness, which doesn't compare well with the 7 hours, 37 minutes the Nexus 7 turned in on the same test. We reviewed the Wi-Fi-only version of the HDX, which supports 802.11 b/g/n on the 2.4 and 5GHz bands. Tested side by side with a Nexus 7 against a Meraki 802.11n router, the HDX had slightly better performance than the Nexus 7 did, especially in weak signal areas at the edge of the router's coverage zone.
Kindle Fire HDX supported file format:
Supported video format: MP4, 3GP, VP8 (video playback at 720p)
Supported audio format: Dolby Digital (AC-3), Dolby Digital Plus (E-AC-3), MP3, Non-DRM AAC (.m4a), MIDI, OGG, WAV, OGG, WAV, MP4, AAC LC/LTP, HE-AACv1, HE-AACv2, AMR-NB, AMR-WB
Supported document format: AZW, TXT,PDF, MOBI, PRC, DOC, DOCX
