Re: maybe a way to view amazon videos via serviio

No, Serviio cannot relay a video from one streaming server to another. And Serviio cannot connect to Amazon itself, because that requires authentication, which Serviio does not offer. Most likely it would take a custom plug-in anyway, so someone would have to come up with it.

Besides, Amazon has dedicated apps for virtually every major streaming player, so why introduce another step into the process? I can watch Amazon videos with my Blu Ray players, Roku players and TVs, the dedicated app in my Smart TVs, and my Nvidia Shield. There's no reason to try to get it through Serviio, and many good reasons not to.
