No HD video in web browsers?

Hi there,
I'm new to owning a Fire HD 10, I'm really enjoying the tablet apart from this one problem. I can't get HD video playback when using Silk or Chrome browser. It plays HD video perfectly fine when using Prime video or the Netflix app. The videos I have tried through the browser on my Fire HD 10 I have also tried on my pc, mobile and older Samsung tablet, and all are able to playback in HD. I've also tried the mobile and desktop versions of the sites.

I'm sorry I don't use either of those browsers as I find them slow and unreliable, the issue is( if you've tried switching to desk top) possibly that they don't have flash or an up to date version of flash player, chrome is dependent on add ons, so you may be able to rectify it,, by installing a flash add on ? I have it in my head that Amazon wont pay the licence fee to use flash ?
?
or
try some other browsers, that for me at least or quick and play vids with little drama, try: mini opera, opera touch( ignore if it tells you it won't work on a kindle, it will) or fast puffin, which is incredibly quick, but can b,  also be, temperamental, with what it plays, and generally, but when it works its marvelous,  I jump about between the three dependent on what I'm doing
