Nope. Video Skill doesn't provide such API.
And tbh, it shouldn't even need to. You should setup in a way, that the service that's retrieving the content, should also notify Kodi to update the library.
You can use post-download script in Transmission or NZBGet, or something similar with other services.

Noticed that when I have this installed, Kodi locks up when I exit forcing me to either reboot or log off windows 10.  Running Leia nightlies with Aeon Nox Silvo.  Just wondering if it's just my setup and what I can provide you to try and troubleshoot.  If I uninstall Kodi connect, Kodi exits normally.  Thanks or any help.

There was one other guy reporting this behavior (also on Windows), but I couldn't track it down. Even from the logs, I saw, that addon did exit, but Kodi still reported some problems.
But at the end, it was related to Plex addon.

Amazing work! Thanks.


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - BDPNA - 2018-03-26

Is there a way to ask how much time is remaining in the video currently playing and get a verbal response back from Alexa?  I had another Kodi-Alexa skill running at one point that did this.

Unfortunately there is not API for that, so currently no. Maybe in the future, if Amazon decides to implement it.

Yes, this is limitation from Amazon.
But you can change your content country in Amazon in order to be able to enable it. (Which is what I am doing)

So, is this a fixable item or just something I have to live with?  I really would like to continue using this, but, not with a reboot after every use.  Thanks.
