"I downloaded some Amazon Prime music on my Android. But now I'm not able to locate it. Where can I find the music on the phone?"
"After I download a video from Amazon I just cannot find the video file on my phone. Where is it?"

 

Since Amazon allows users to download videos, movies, and music with Amazon Prime, more and more people start downloading their favorite Amazon videos and music on their phones. But due to the strict protection of the digital resources, those downloaded videos and music are only accessible to the official Amazon apps, such as Prime Video or Amazon Music app.

Some of the users may want to copy those video and music files in order to save them to the computers or export to other devices for watching and listening, but they are not sure where those Amazon media files download to Android phone.

Here we've concluded the methods of how to locate the downloaded Amazon videos and music on the Android phone. And if you would like to play Amazon Prime video on TV, here is also how to chromecast Amazon video from Android to the TV.  Moreover, there is a clever trick of saving Amazon Prime Music as MP3 files on the computer.

 

SOLUTION

 

1. Use File Manager App to Check Amazon Video/Music Download Location

Everything we download from the webpage or apps will have a copy or leave cache on the phone's storage. Use either the default file manager app or a third-party one; follow the paths below to locate the downloaded Amazon videos or audios on your Android phone.

For videos:

  • internal storage/android/data/com.amazon.avod.thirdpartyclient
  • /data/data/com.amazon.avod.thirdpartyclient

For audios:

  • /storage/emulated/0/android/data/com.amazon.mp3/files/music

But unfortunately to tell you that, to protect copyright, the files you find under these folders are in a particular type of format that can only be read and opened by Amazon Prime apps. So it seems totally impossible to copy the original Prime video or music files and move them to other devices.

 

2. Chromecast Amazon Prime Video from Android

Although you cannot export the Amazon video file to other devices, but you still can watch Prime videos on TV through Chromecast. All you need to do is just 3 simple steps.

Step 1. Get the Necessary Apps Ready
Download and install Amazon Prime Video app and Google Home app (formerly as Chromecast app) on your phone.

Step 2. Cast the Screen

  • Launch Google Home app.
  • Click the three-vertical-line icon at the top left corner. Choose the TV you'd like to cast Amazon video to.

3. Record Amazon Prime Music to MP3

Since the downloaded music is stored as a special format on the phone which can only be played through Amazon Music app, it's recommended to use FonePaw Screen Recorder to record the Amazon music and save as MP3 file.
