If you use Amazon Drive you may have seen the message, “We don’t support playback of videos longer than 20 minutes.”
- “We don’t support playback of videos longer than 20 minutes.”
- “Playback is supported for videos up to 20 minutes in length.”
- “Video is too long for playback”
- “Video is too large for playback”

It worked for some types of files (mp4), but not others (wmv). Very cool regardless. Unfortunately, it looks like some recent upgrades to the AWS interface have broken this extension. 🙁
Thanks for letting me know. I’ll see if I can get it working again.
Please can you update the Amazon Drive Chrome Extension? now it doesnot work.
Just pushed out an update. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
Hi, is it possible to have the same extension but for Amazon.ca ?
I’ve updated the permissions to include amazon.ca. I cannot test it but let me know if that works for you.
Hi there, is it possible to do the same for amazon.com.au?
Thank you so much!
Most likely. Have you taken a look at the source code. All you would have to do is add the domain to this file https://github.com/timleland/AmazonDriveExtension/blob/master/manifest.json
Sadly, I edited the file and installed the extension however I still get the 20 minute restriction.
Thanks anyway! D:
Maybe the website works differently. Sorry it didn’t work 🙁
Would I be able to do this on a fire stick?
If the fire stick can run chrome it may work.
Disappointing to see that 3 years later, Amazon still enforce the same restriction. Wanted to share home videos with the family, and cannot find a way to get around the 20 minute limit. I was also not able to install your extension on Chrome / MacOS. Is it me who couldn’t figure out how to install it, or is the extension no longer working?
Hey most likely the extension no longer works. I’ve since moved in to google photos for pictures and videos. Works better in my opinion.
Thanks for the reply! I use Google Photos extensively as well. Their search algorithm are second to none. However, sometimes you still need to have some structure and organize in folders. Unfortunately, Google Photos can’t offer that. Shame!
