Amazon removed Perfect Player from appstore

Unfortunately, Amazon decided to remove Perfect Player IPTV app from Amazon appstore.

Thus, we do recommend to install the latest app version from APK: Perfect Player
You’d need to use “Sideload” method for this.

We’ll continue to improve our software and are very grateful to all the app users.

Also, we are going to add some new “Full version” features in upcoming versions for Amazon Fire TV users for free.

    Amazon is such a horrible platform for streaming media players. Always throwing wrenches into shit

    So what do we do now I have paid for it via both google store (shield) and amazon for my fire, if I download it from your link will the paid feature be unlocked? Thanks

      I guess, you can still use the app with Full version while it’s installed on your device.
      Otherwise, Full version on Fire TV device is only available when install the app from Amazom appstore. As long as, Amazon removed the app from their appstore that’s not available. It’s not our fault or desire. Hope, you can ask Amazon for refund.

      As was mentioned in the post, some new “Full version” features will be available for Fire TV users in upcoming updates.

    Tried yesterday to download it from this page and it wouldn’t work…. even when it is successfully installed on a firetv device it won’t populate on the home screen or in ” recents” and can only be launched from inside settings and then managed installed apps….

  4. I have the same question as Gil.

      Please, read the reply.

        the ads are moderate but still intrusive. for those of us that have paid for the full version perhaps even more than once (as i have), an ad free version of the app should definitely be available. maybe i can extract the installed app, surely i will need to factory reset eventslly.

          eventually *

          • Devon says:

            Curious, why can’t you supply a link to adfree for those of us that paid? You could host on Google Drive and only share with that email or similar. I’ve purchased other apps outside of Amazon appstore that were full versions to avoid ads. It is possible if you choose to do so.

  5. Andi says:

    Will there be an option to get an ad-free version on FireTV?

    • nikman says:

      Currently, it is not possible. In the future, this will depend on the circumstances.
      Ad in the app is very moderate, it is made specifically to minimize the inconvenience.

  6. Stuart says:

    Could I ask for some clarification for those that have the app installed. Will this remain installed? And if so, will it continue to update?

    • nikman says:

      The app will remain installed unless you uninstall it. However, this will not be updated from Amazon appstore as it’s not listed there.
      You can update to the latest version from APK, but this will lead to lost of Full version.

    It is not showing on the home page have to go through manage installed apps to launch it after side load. Is there a way round this

    • Marc says:

      Hopefully there is a fix for this in an upcoming update. I have installed lots of things on fire 6th generation and they all appear in home screen. Perfect Player is the only one that doesn’t.

      • nikman says:

        Probably, because they are all listed on Amazon appstore.

        • Marc says:

          Definitely not the case

          • nikman says:

            Was it on Home screen when installed from Amazon appstore?
            Could you sideload v1.4.4 from APK to see if this will show up on Home screen?

          • Marc says:

            I’ve just put onto it and it still won’t allow to put on the home screen. I did notice that manage storage was automatically set to allow however. Previous versions were set to deny.

  8. Marc says:

    Rolling back to 1.4.4 won’t work as it just asks me to update then closes down at the first opportunity.

    • nikman says:

      You’d need no uninstall newer version first.
      To transfer current app settings among versions you can use “Settings->Defaults->Backup/Restore settings” feature.

  9. Serge says:

    Ive had the same issue as the app disappears from home screen and apps on Fire TV. I have to go to Applications > Manage Installed > Perfect Player > Launch for it to work. Rolling back to 1.4.4 doesn’t fix this, as the app completely disappears after any type of sideload. Any other sideloaded APK shows up no problem.

  10. Joe mac says:

    Found a solution, download appstarter. apk side load it open it and all your apps appear. This is an alternative to fire home screen

  11. Dave says:

    Hope this gets addressed soon – just bought a Fire TV on sale not knowing about this issue. If it isn’t fixed within the return time, the Fire TV goes back. I have 2 Firesticks that are working fine (PP installed before Amazon’s dumbass move) and have no desire to switch to an alterative app.
