Last night I did all steps from to set up Kodi Alexa integration and works very well
I tried this, I went through the steps on the Github, but I'm getting this error:

Error: "skill creation failed"

Any idea why this is?  I'm pretty sure my location information is correct. 
I had the same problem but then I noticed that the table within the instructuioins noted that for united kingdom I needed Ireland and not London. I switch the location and this fixed the problem. I'm guessing that wherever you are located, it may be the same issue.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, but I've already got it set to Ireland. :/

I guess it must be a location thing somewhere, but I'm not sure where I've gone wrong.

RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - litfoo - 2020-02-15

How can I delete the skill completely so I can try again?


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - Carefree Danny - 2020-02-16

Hi Guy’s,

Got this all setup but when a ask Alexa to do anything I get a message saying kodi connect nothing found. Any ideas why this is happening?


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - brumbie - 2020-02-26

Incredible...worked first time. I'm in Australia so I did have to go back to change the region from Sydney to U.S West (Oregon) but this has to be the best ever skill I have come across....Thank you so much mate.


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - russco - 2020-03-11

This is all working great for me, just one minor annoyance.

If I give a command like, "Alexa, watch Top Gun" she says something like, "I can do that using Kodi, provider, or provider. Which would you like?"

How do I delete those two providers so that she automatically knows to use Kodi?


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - runawaydevil - 2020-03-21

Frankly, I'm almost givin' up
I live in Brazil.
When I join in the website and set alexa skills and so insert the code:

arn:aws:lambda:us-east-2:mynumber:function:kodi

I get this error: {"error":"Skill creation failed"}
Am I doing something wrong? Sad


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - theo08 - 2020-03-28

hi i am from germany, set the region to ireland so the arn looks like this:

 arn:aws:lambda:eu-west-1:<long_number>:function:kodi    (with <long number> being the generated number ofc)

but it always returns:

{"error":"Skill creation failed"}

is this addon broken?


i have also tried with Europa (Frankfurt) eu-central-1 and any other region all return the same error message

You got any success setting up this skill?
I`m also from Brazil and I tried basically all countries in the Lambda functions and neither one is working.

Same error for me Sad

I am in Italy and I have set the region to Ireland.

At this point I fear that the system has stopped working...
