Is your AFTV rooted?
I was too fast with the installation, so mine is unrootable at the moment.

No root needed for sideloading via ADB,and Evozi should help you out on getting the apk.
If your firmware is new enough,you should already have access to installing apk files from unknown sources.

Also...Terminal Emulator,a web browser,and ES File Explorer on your FTV will help you have an easier time sideloading apk files if you have a keyboard like the Logitech K400r.

Thanksfor your answer. What for I need the Terminal emulator? I just asked, cause I installed another rotation app, wich doesn't work. The screen rotates for less then a second and goes back to normal mode.
I already have the k400r Keyboard, wich is a great combination with the aftv. By the way, I was able to bring the real spotify app to the startscreen by connecting it with the spotify connect app by using the "lama-method".

For those who do not have root access,Terminal Emulator can be used to sideload a stored apk file from your Fire TV's sdcard directory (primarily the "Download" folder) so you don't have to use a PC anymore.
The web browser and ES File Explorer are for accessing more apk files via Evozi and other means then renaming them something short to type into Terminal Emulator using
"adb install /sdcard/folder/filename.apk" to install the app you downloaded.

Omni GIF (APNG) player works perfectly,even for playing APNG files!
Also should be good on any other Android device.

There is a pro version if you want to show some support for this truly amazing app.

Skype of video/chat on Amazon FireTV
Hello All,

I am wondering has anyone successfully sideloaded Skype or any other voice/video chat software on Amazon FireTV and then connected a USB Camera with built in mic to start using the FireTV as a video/chat solution on the big screen. I am trying to see if this would be feasible. I would imagine the challenge would be around the drivers for the webcam (I am sure there are many smart people here) who can resolve that challenge. I would imagine such a solution would be another killer app for Amazon FireTV and would take another step towards a must have for any living room and taking the bite out of walled garden that Microsoft provides with xbox.

Thanks for the help.
