Hi, this is Nick. This tutorial will show you how to install TPlayer on FireStick. The instructions in this guide apply to FireStick 4K & 4K Max, Fire TV Stick Lite, Fire TV Cube, and other Amazon Fire OS products.

What is TPlayer?

how to install tplayer on firestick

TPlayer is a video media player. A media player is an app that plays videos for other apps. VLC is the most well-known example of a media player.

TPlayer can play videos saved on the device. However, the app is more commonly used as an external player with third-party apps. Some apps, such as Tea TV, will not work without TPlayer.

MX Player, BPlayer, and Titan Player are other popular third-party media players.

Is it Safe & Legal?

TPlayer is an official app on Google Play Store and Apple Store. However, it is not available on the Amazon Store. Therefore, we sideload it on FireStick from an unverified or unofficial source.

I scanned the APK file of TPlayer through Virus Total. Thankfully, it did not detect anything harmful or malicious. The following image shows the scan result:

is tplayer safe and legal

TPlayer is legal because it is available on Google Play Store and Apple Store. However, when you use it with Tea TV or any other third-party app, it may stream videos from unverified sources.

I don’t encourage copyright violations. However, if you want to maintain your privacy and avoid legal problems, you should use TPlayer with ExpressVPN.
