SignagePlayer Kindle Fire
« on: January 13, 2017, 07:11:16 AM »

I purchased an Amazon Kindle Fire TV-Stick, to use it for a Signage installation.

This forum post mentions the support of the Kindle Fire   http://script.digitalsignage.com/forum/index.php/topic,1589.msg5424.html#msg5424

But when I tested the Kindle Fire, I was unable to navigate the App with the remote. (baisicly stuck on the first screen)

The Android App was installed with ADB,  because the amazon store App is region blocked for me.  www. amazon .com/MediaSignage-com-FREE-Digital-Signage/dp/B007GECVNW
So my question:
- Did the support drop for the Kindle Fire?  (navigation without touch)
- is there a difference between the Kindle App and the Android APK version.

As a bonus ... because I want to get this to work....
Since the android app saves credentials or a token somewhere after login.
It would be possible to do the login on a normal android device and just transfer the file where the credentials/token is stored.
I did a quick look (with root access), but could not find the relevant file

Answers / help would be appreciated

I was able to get it to run.

With adb you can use the input command, when you have a shell on the device.
with input you can send touch and key events and you can use adb to grab screenshots.

I used the program in the following blog-post to do it easily.
