in Chrome: every Movie/Serie looks like SD Quality.
How can i enable 1080p/1440P/4k uhd Quality?
When i start a Episode, example:
Amazon.de: Occupied - Die Besatzung ansehen | Prime Video
or for 4k uhd:
Amazon.de: Bosch - Staffel 5 ansehen | Prime Video
the movie looks like Eyes Crash.
How can i enable maximum Quality?

Something to activate with command in Terminal at first?
Thanks for helping !

it is so crazy, that amazon prime works fine with TV ( Amazon App) = with high Quality. ( i tested them yesterday)
but on my desktop pc ( with fedora 32) only i mean SD Quality in all Movies/Series
= in past, desktop pc with Windows, never Problems with Amazon Prime.
only now with fedora installed
Thanks for helping…

to solve the Problem: maybe…
How to Install Windows 10 on Virtualbox in Linux ( Fedora 32)
this are a great Tutorial for that?
i want to watch prime not in SD - so, i search for finding solutions…

Did you try with Firefox? Do you have the same definition?
May 19, 2020, 3:12pm
Yes, with Firefox, in my Case - same Issue.
i think, it is the Problem Linux and Amazon Prime (DRM Copyprotection)
so, that is the result for, only just SD Quality …

I can see that on Firefox
(it is in Italian. Video Quality: Good, Higher, Excellent)
Do you mean that you haven’t these options, and you are stuck to the first one?
May 19, 2020, 3:43pm
i have these Options too.
No, i did´t mean that.
i mean: Start a Movie/Serie and look at the bottom left.
You see the Time ( example: 00:00 / 39:06 )
when Prime works fine, the right solution is: 00:00 / 39:06 1080p
00:00 / 39:06 uhd hdr
in my Case: only: 00:00 / 39:06
and that means: Movies/Series only in SD Quality - and that is Accident in my Eyes

Oh, well, there is this document on Amazon:
Prime Video System Requirements for Computers
If you are running an operating system other than Windows or Mac OS, playback is restricted to standard definition.

this is what i mean - and that is holy sh…
WHY did they shut down Linux?
WHY did not Millions of Linux Users open the Amazon Prime Door and say: enable your Stuff for Linux Users…

I recommend you, install chromium-freeworld…
May 19, 2020, 9:04pm
However this doesn’t solve the issue.
May 21, 2020, 2:06pm
i can not understand, why A. Prime set Linux User to un-respectful second line, you know what i mean. i find this Step, for Linux User, that Movies Stuff only possible to get in SD Quality, not really friendly. what do you think?
May 22, 2020, 9:14pm
If chromium-freeworld has vaapi, widevine enabled and full media support it would works… Other problem is the drivers but it is other topic…
May 23, 2020, 12:08pm
@davidva: Greetings - thanks for your Post.
i use chrome, not chromium.
i do not know, what is vaapi and widevine and full media support.
and do not know, what steps to do, to use all stuff.
is here just one user, who use amazon prime with Linux?
best case, fedora?
so, i can hope - but, i thought, with Linux just only SD Quality works with Amazon Prime.
and not important, which browser you use.
just linux, okay, only SD Quality

@dawson Install it from UnitedRPMs or Rpmfusion… I can secure the installation of widevine and others things is automatic from UnitedRPMs. But as I am user of Netflix I am not tested Amazon… Your question about if it works can help.
May 23, 2020, 7:03pm
i am sure, Amazon Prime not work in full hd, 1440p or uhd with Linux…
that are told in notes in amazon page: https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=GUVGB3QMQRYRERYW
so, with chromium, or firefox or any other browers = not possible, i thing
May 23, 2020, 8:20pm
Conjectures isn’t possible; Check it out for yourself. Install chromium-freeworld and test, and if you want remove after…

sudo dnf remove chromium-freeworld

You will soon be able to get Microsoft Edge Chromium for Linux. Edge is one of the few browsers that can stream 1080p and 4K.
