kodi connect error, check the log for more information

Tomas -

I've been using the skill for more than a month now, and it's been working really well.  Love the shortness of the voice commands, especially once Alexa knows you want to control Kodi.  Even if I didn't initiate playback using Alexa, one "Alexa, pause HTPC" and from then on "Alexa, pause" or "Alexa, resume" does the job -- just great!

One request: Could you add the ability to turn on/off notifications about Kodi Connect? My setup is mobile, and as a result my Internet connection varies, and this can occasionally lead to a distracting number of notifications about Kodi Connect while watching TV.

Cheers,

Scott

Oh. Sure, I'll try to find the time for that. But generally, it shouldn't be that hard to implement.

What log? did you forget to attach it?


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

i cant for the life of me find a log on my media center, usually uninstalling and then reinstalling the addon resolves this issue, but i tried and it didnt work, is there a way i could find the error log?

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'm able to play videos now, but, I'm still getting locked up when exiting Kodi.  Kinda makes the skill a no go for me.  Here's my latest log.  I'll keep watching to see if this ever gets corrected.  Thanks.

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
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 
 Hi again,

Everything works know (except the stop error).
Thanks for your efforts.

Keep up the good work.

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

Thanks again.  I do love the skill and hope it gets submitted.

For anyone having issues after reinstalling the skill for Alexa:  I had to uninstall the addon in Kodi and delete my user data because Alexa thought I had two instances of this skill and asked which instance I wanted the media played on.

Anyway, great skill Tomas!!


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - UnderFact - 2018-04-09

this is the best i could get when it comes to a log file. this seems to be the only part related to the addon, if you need the full log file, i could probably try and get it some howImage


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - UnderFact - 2018-04-09

it works on the kodi on my pc, but i need it for my tv

Thanks for the log. This error actually never happened before.
Can you please try newer version? https://www.dropbox.com/s/ts1v9dilj64j0ts/plugin.video.kodiconnect-0.1.14.zip?dl=0

 I am having the exact problem above, Alexa asks which instance of the skill to use, and then lets me use neither!

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the addon in Kodi, and deleted my user data under user data addons kodi connect, but still the skill is duplicated, any suggestions?

Well that seems really odd. In my case, I didn't have to enable it again. It just kept working again.


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - captainfearless - 2018-04-09

Same here initially, i enabled the new skill yesterday morning and it kept working. Went to use it last night and it was 'kodi video or kodi video'. 

No matter what i delete or renistall now , it appears that my Echo sees the old skill and the new one.


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - captainfearless - 2018-04-09

Kept on rebooting and re-enabling stuff and now it's working again!!!
