Btw. for all of you users, I would recommend to u secure your Alexa first, in order to avoid potential troubles. Do this https://www.smarthomegeeks.co.uk/how-to/5-simple-steps-to-secure-your-amazon-alexa/  it helped me a lot with navigation the whole thing (had plenty of issues at the beginning)

What does this have to do with this Alexa skill?

Hi,

I'm using docker to run my own kodi-connect server instance using the sources from
https://github.com/kodi-connect/kodi-connect

Everything seems to work properly and I've configured (a hell lot) within amazon to be able to link skills.
Unfortunately I'm experiencing the generic error "We were unable to link Kodi Alexa at this time." and I believe it's due to the fact to something you've mentioned here
https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=327562&pid=2727802#pid2727802
"I've deployed a new version, which I hope should be working now."

unfortunately the code on github don't seem to be updated.

Thanks for having a look at this, your work is much appreciated!

Hi,
skill is working perfectly with Echo Dot, but not with Echo show. If I've ask to watch, Alexa ask me if I like to watch on Kodi or Show and then there is no way how to enforce Alexa for Kodi Sad

Hi guys, would really like to use this skill, can you please and me to the beta so that I can get the Alexa skill? (Living in the Netherlands) thanks!


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - CaseCRS - 2018-07-09

Anyway I can get added to the list to test out this Alexa skill?


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - badbob001 - 2018-07-09

Does this support voice commands via the firetv voice remote or is it only through a separate echo device?

Multiple people reported this issue. Unfortunately, I can't do much about this, as the request never reaches my skill. But if someone does find a solution, please let others know.

Not that I know. For some reason, Alexa always tries to play through Prime TV

Ok, this is probably why this doesn't work on the FireTV Cube.


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - sahara - 2018-07-09

Hi, I can't open apps. Alexa says: I can't launch apps on Kodi Video with the command launch appname app.
Saying Launch appname  - i get error - hmm I don't know that.
