Amazon's Instant Video store (on the Web site) offers plenty of movies and shows for users to rent and purchase. Pricing might be the biggest reason to try Amazon Instant Video. So far as we know, TV and movie studios set the prices on their content, so most Apple and Amazon pricing will be identical. But Amazon seems to offer lower prices on many titles, presumably eating the difference as an inducement to get more business. Amazon makes its video content accessible in two formats: H.264/AAC within an .mp4 container and VC-1/WMV9 within a .wmv container. H.264/AAC video is best for Macs, while .wmv is optimized for Windows Media Player. The download Amazon Instant Videos are WMV videos with DRM protection, if you attempt to play these downloaded Amazon WMV videos/movies on Microsoft Surface RT/Pro, you need a DRM removal tool to bypass the DRM protection first of all.

Size (pix): 1280*720 (720p quality)
Bit rate (kbps): 2,000
Frame Rate (fps): 24
Sample Rate (hz) 48,000
Bit rate (bps): 128,000
