I get "Playback not allowed on this device" for every video in the Amazon Instant Video app on my iPad 3. Is this because it's jailbroken? I've read other people are getting the same error. Is it working for anyone here?

Thanks everyone. Stuff like this is frustrating. I'm ticked at Amazon for blocking jailbroken devices and I'm ticked at Apple for having their head up their butt when it comes to not allowing simple tweaks to their device, therefore requiring me to jailbreak. I think I'm jumping to Surface Pro this Dec.

We'll be here when you jump back. ;)

EDIT: Did a little research and you can install xCon from Cydia and it'll block jailbreak detection.

this app is not great. seems to buffer a lot even with decent wifi speeds. The Hulu and Netflix apps seem to be much more robust.
