The program which can be used an all-in-one video conversion app for for Kindle Fire HD.

Guide: Converting WMV to MP4 for Kindle Fire HD 

Step 1: Install and run the Kindle WMV Converter to your PC, Click "Add Video" or "Add from folder" to import your source materials in .wmv format. Batch conversion is supported so that you can add multiple files. 

Step 2: Choose the output format. Click "Format" bar, you can get optimized videos for Kindle Fire HD under Android > Amazon Kindle Fire HD H.264(*.mp4). The output videos could fit on your device perfectly. 

Tips: If you like, you can click "Settings" to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. According to my experience, the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss, and vice versa. For watching videos onKindle Fire HD, 720p with 2000~2500kbps is just all right. 

Step 3: After above settings, you can start the WMV to Kindle Fire HD MP4 conversion. Once the process completes, locate the files and transfer and copy the converted MP4 videos to your Amazon tablets. As you see, now you can effortlessly watch WMV videos on your Kindle Fire HD.
