Hi, this is Nick. This tutorial shows you how to install Bplayer on FireStick. The images used in this guide were taken on FireStick 4K. However, the steps also work on FireStick 4K Max, Fire Stick Lite, Fire TV Cube, and any other Fire TV.
What is BPlayer?
BPlayer is a video player for Android and TV OS based on Android. You can compare BPlayer with VLC Media Player. Both are external players that do not host any content of their own.
BPlayer must be used with other apps to play videos. For instance, the popular Nova TV APK only supports BPlayer. You need BPlayer as the video player for this app.
The BPlayer app is available on Google Play Store. However, it is absent from the Amazon Store. Therefore, you must sideload it as a third-party media player.
Is it Safe & Legal?
You can download BPlayer on Android mobiles from the official Google Play Store. However, you must get it from an unofficial or third-party source on Amazon Store. Therefore, it may raise doubts about the safety and security of the app.
Thankfully, Virus Total cleared the BPlayer APK in the scan result. Here is the snapshot:
Since BPlayer does not provide any content, it seems legal. However, you would still want to exercise caution. This app lets you stream unverified streams from third-party apps like Nova TV. We can’t tell whether those streams are legal.
Always use ExpressVPN with third-party apps to ensure you never have to worry about legal issues.

How to Use Titan Player on FireStick
The Titan Player is supposed to be used with another content-providing app. It will not play any videos on its own. You can set it up when you open Titan Player through another app.
However, running the app once and getting the initial setup process out of the way would be a good idea.
Go to your apps list by clicking the button on the FireStick home screen. You may also press the same button on your FireStick remote if your device has it.
Open BPlayer from the list.
Click Allow Access (appears only the first time after installation).
This is the blank home screen of the Bplayer. It is blank because the app does not host any content.
When you use BPlayer through a supporting app, such as Nova TV, here is what the playback looks like. I played Last Man on Earth (1964). It is a public-domain movie.
So, you learned how to install Bplayer on FireStick. You may now use it with Nova TV or any other app that supports an external player. Please feel free to contact me through the comments section below.
