RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - grimmace92 - 2018-04-07

Works nicely.  Is there a fix or workaround for stop?  It still pauses when you say Alexa stop.


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - kotzo - 2018-04-07

Hi,

Made all the steps.
You put me also in the email list.

Skill responds to commands:

* Resume
* pause (instead of stop)
* forward XX minutes


Unfortunately play [movie] is not working:
Alexa responds to the command with:

"Getting XXXXXX from Kodi Video" but nothing happens

Regards

RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - UnderFact - 2018-04-08

i need to be included in the beta program, but the forum wont let me pm you for some reason. I could send an email if you give me your email address.


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - bigjpayne90 - 2018-04-08

Loved this skill, but I just received an email with the subject line “Beta test has ended for the Alexa skill: Kodi Video”. It goes on to say thank you for testing the skill, etc., etc...

Anybody else receive this?

Haven’t had a chance to see if it still works yet but will test later...


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - tkislan - 2018-04-08

For all those that received email about finished Beta testing, Amazon only allows one to run for 90 days.
But I have started a new one, with the new link for the skill:
https://skills-store.amazon.com/deeplink/tvt/afacb1fdc71a76b0a3be13de60a7240d0b110ec80de8ef7aff379ab9e55ae351de9ff779708481764fb95e4116977c65288c0a0d4e0d4581444d002626f1bca3a76881226d04b4289b89bc2c1fcaea674fa0bc00b764d51613f43cea57cd871c5fed97221e35ffe6bc19dd9292f311cf

Hopefully during this test, I will be able to get the skill submitted, so everyone can just use it freely.


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - rudyamaro - 2018-04-08

You rock tkislan!

Just wanted to add that this is my favorite Alexa skill. The ability to load any movie or tv show with Alexa without having to say "Alexa, ask App to play the movie Avengers" is awesome! I love that I can just say, "Alexa, play Avengers" and it works.

Thanks again tkislan!

Thanks for the feedback, and the log. I though, that I've already fixed this before.
But it should be now
Can you try new version? https://github.com/kodi-connect/kodi-connect-addon/blob/master/readme.md

You can PM me on reddit. There are no restrictions there. (I would rather not paste my email here)

Sorry about that.  Need to leave debug on all the time. Smile  Here's my latest log, but, now , again, Alexa says playing "show" on kodi video and nothing plays.  However, I can now exit out of Kodi without any problems. 
Hey. I've found out what the problem is.
Should be fixed in the newest 0.1.13 version. Can you please try it out?

I've addressed this on Amazon forums. They mostly responded, that it's actually on purpose on their side, as they think it's more user friendly. But I've mentioned it, that multiple people are complaining about it, and hopefully they will do something about it.


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - waznitch - 2018-04-08

Thank you mate.
