If your digital library offers the streaming video format, you can borrow and watch free shows, movies, and more from your library's digital collection right in your web browser, without having to download files or use special software.
To get started, borrow an available video from your library. If you're using a web browser (like Chrome or Safari) or our Windows 8 app, click the Play button on your library bookshelf to start watching the video in a new browser tab. If you're using the latest version of the OverDrive app for iOS or Android, tap the Add to app button to add the streaming video to your in-app bookshelf.
Note: You may not be able to play all streaming videos (like those from Starz) on a Kindle Fire or Fire HD.
If you're not sure whether or not your device and browser are compatible, you can try the sample below to see if it works.
Note: Streaming video may consume a lot of data, so if you're on a mobile plan with a data cap, we recommend using a Wi-Fi connection when streaming on your mobile device to avoid data overages.
