    Hi
    On my rMBP 13" 2015 in Chome HTML5 amazon Prime Video looks washed out and worse than a 1984 VHS video

    On my iPad mini Amazon Prime Video app with the same film / tv series it is picture perfect.

    Why is this?

    Why done amazon mac an app for macOS

    ps
    Netfix on same rMBP is fine.

    thanks in advance

    Have you tried other browsers to make sure it's not a Chrome issue?

    Hi
    Thanks for the reply
    Yes tried Safari which need Silverlight plug in - dreadful and caused the rMBPs fan to click on
    I can download firefox.

    Yeah I would expect it from Safari, let me know how FF does. I'll test it on my end this weekend too and see as well.

    Hi
    Thanks for that reply appreciate your it.
    The GT played okay on rMBP 13" on FF and Chrome but the quality of the picture is so much better on my 2012 iPad Mini in comparison, I watched it on that in the end.

    I had a months trial of Netflix earlier in the year and the picture from memory seemed a lot better and temperature was a steady 40 degrees - no fan.

    Amazon Prime video on iPhone 6 app again pin sharp verses rMBP

    Maybe I'm expecting to much.

    Yeah I have the same issue on the 13" 2015 rMBP when I try to use Safari. Chrome seems to work fine with it, and most videos play in 1080p.

    On the computer they use Silverlight, not sure what the mobile devices use. That might be the difference
