RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - adskee - 2018-03-31

Just trying to set this up. Completed Step 2 but Kodi Connect is connecting then immediately disconnecting over and over.

I've entered my email address and secret key in twice, and rebooted Kodi, but it's still doing it.

I haven't installed the skill yet but presume that's unrelated.

Any advice ease?

Connect/Disconnect loop is cause by incorrect credentials.
Can you please double check? Or try to create new device, and use new secret.

Got it. Capital in my email address. Duh!

I have the Skill link but can't get it working. My browser says to open Alexa, which I do, then it takes me to a browser page that says Download Alexa. But it's already installed. When I click download, I end up in the Play Store. If I open the app from there, obviously it doesn't install.

Tried this loads of times, don't know what I'm missing.

Is this the same issue as with Kodi Connect?

My email should have a capital A for the first letter. The one I emailed you didn't. Thinking this is why. Apologies if it is.

Ah yeah, sorry about that.
I need to update it to be case insensitive.
Can you try to open it through computer instead of phone? Not sure why this is an issue.
Or could you open Alexa app, and see if you have the skill there?
Also, whats your content country in Amazon account? Because it only works for US, UK, and DE

Thanks in advance!


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - feridb - 2018-04-02

I managed to set it all up, thank you for the support Tomas!

For some reason Alexa is not recognizing my requests. Here are my results.

"Alexa, play movie die hard on Kodi" gives me "I couldn't find a skill called Kodi"

"Alexa, play movie die hard" gives me "I couldn't find a video matching your request, here are some recommendations" On my echo show it shows an empty screen with in the top right the Prime Video logo.

"Alexa, play movie die hard on Kodi Video" gives me "Playing top results" it searches Bing on the echo show and starts a video.

Any idea why this is happening?
I rebooted both devices. Removed and added a device on the connect page and reconfigured on Kodi. And I tried disabling the and enabling the skill.

And how does Alexa reply, when you request to play some movie?
