@tkislan Awesome, the speed you're churning out these updates is fantastic.

Any chance of a "Alexa, show me recent episodes" or "Alexa, show me recent movies/films" option, that lists all your recently added tv/movies?

 Just upgraded to version 0.1.19 and I am still having the same issue with genres.  The request was done at approximately 7:39AM ET.  A request for Fantasy movies works fine, Sci-Fi and Science Fiction return a message from Kodi Connect saying "Nothing Found". 
I don't get it. I've just added unit test for the exact same Alexa request, and it does find movies.
Can you check whats the name of your Sci-Fi genre? I have it named "Science Fiction", and it does match it. Maybe if in your case it's called "Sci-Fi", it might not match against it.
Also, if you send me your "MyVideos107.db" file, it might help to investigate why it's not working for you

Unfortunately voice interface is defined by Amazon.
All I can do is provide responses to those requests.


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - russco - 2018-09-12

@tkislan  Ah okay.  Is there a way to make it load a playlist, or is that the same problem?


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - melons2 - 2018-09-12

I just upgraded to new version and have started getting the "Connected / Disconnect" error. I have been a user from the begining and had not changed anything so I tried a restart.....same result, still had the error.
Went to the website and deleted this instance and re-added device for a new code.
Same result.....still getting error.

What have I done wrong?

 I had the same problem for a while.  I restarted Kodi and the problem went away and has been working since.

The genre is "Sci-Fi" as that's how it appears on IMDB.com.  I also tried "Science-Fiction" and get the same error, however, "Science Fiction" does work (no dash)  My database is MyVideos112.db. I am running Leia Beta 2.  What is the best way to send you the file?  (assuming you still need/want it).

Nope, not needed anymore.
The issue is that "Science Fictions" doesn't match against "Sci-Fi", those strings are just not similar enough.
I've added and deployed a simple mapping, that will extend the genres being sent. (no need to update addon)
Could you try once more?

 Last change appears to have solved the problem.   Thanks

RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - melons2 - 2018-09-13

I restarted and it seemed to work, later I had to do a restart and now I am back to the "Connected / Disconnected" error.
I haven't changed anything .....anyone else having this problem or have a solution?

Thanks

Can you PM me with email you’re using with the addon? I’ll check logs what’s happening.

I’m seeing the same behavior. Sometimes I’ll start Kodi and everything will be fine, other times I keep getting the connected/disconnected messages. Restarting Kodi usually resolves it, but it seems random. This never happened prior to 0.19


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - tkislan - 2018-09-13

@hslansky @melons2 
I've checked the logs, and sometimes there are errors popping out, that the device with the secret is already connected.
But I don't know why this started happening out of nowhere. I didn't do any changes connection is being made between Kodi and Server.

Can I still join beta?
