How To Watch Amazon Prime Video Offline on a Chromebook
Watch a Movie or Three without straining Wi-Fi or Data.
I’m a big fan of Amazon Prime. I order lots of stuff with 1 day shipping, I listen to Amazon Music Offline and I regularly watch TV Shows and Movies on Amazon Video.
With Chromebooks offering up to 12 hours battery life, when on the road, I can now watch a movie or three, but with the caveat of slow provided Wi-Fi or no signal on the go, which will lead to watching the long-winded film called “The Buffering”.
Fortunately, with a Play Enabled Chromebook, with some jiggery you can download films offline to the device through the Amazon Video App, but it will take a few steps to get to that place as follows:
- Enable Chromebook Developer Mode (Wipes Chromebook)
- Go to Android Preferences (found in ChromeOS Settings under Google Play)
- Choose Security
- Choose Unknown Sources – You can now “sideload” (install) any .APK file by opening them
- Install Dolphin Web Browser from the Play Store
- Google “Amazon Underground” and click the first link
- Download Amazon Underground
- Search for Amazon Video and Install
That’s it! Once done, you have full access to the Amazon Video library and can download TV Shows & Movies for offline access.
