The support page is of little help. It suggests several troubleshooting steps, but since they are so generic, they may not help resolve the issue. For example, Amazon suggests to close the app or the browser and try to play the video again on the next restart. Other suggestions have customers restart the computer or device, update their browsers or devices to the latest version, or that the same account is not used on more than two devices at a time.
Once you have gone through all the recommendations, you may still face the issue. A search on the Internet returns the usual assortment of "how to fix" articles form sites that make a living writing the same suggestions over and over again. Often, the suggestions may include just the right program or service to resolve the issue that is experienced.
Most of the time, these sites do not help when it comes to specific issues that customers experience.
