You need to ask your invitation name.
Alexa ASK KODI to play iron man

But when I make a request to my echo dot "Alexa play iron man". I get the reply from Alexa "Getting Iron Man from FireTV"? How does it search for it from Kodi? Am I missing something?

Thanks for all your effort.
Hey. You can say "Play iron man on <device_name>", where <device_name> is what you entered on Kodi Connect page.
This is in case you want to use both. But if you don't use FireTV, you should be able to set default video skill, or disable FireTV video skill.

Hi.
The controls seem to be working quite well (except the known issue withe the stop-command).
I have some trouble with the addon (0.1.8). It's not starting automatically after reboot. When I stat it manually (disable->enable),
it comes up correct and displays "connected". 
I'm on Leia alpha. I don't have issues with autostart of other addons.
 
Any suggestions?

Maybe the "wait for network" function might be worth a try?

Waiting for network probably wont make any difference, as the Addon is trying to connect every 20 seconds when it fails.

Can you provide more info? Like platform? And maybe even log with debugging enabled

 Hi. 
I guess waiting did the trick for me. If the skill is not responding "immediately" after boot, it is reproducible working after some time.
I'll observe the further but so far I'm quite happy. Is there any progress to be expected "soon" on the "stop-issue"?

Hi, I'm a new member here so it looks like I'm restricted to send both pm and emails. So tkislan, could you please add my amazon account to the skills needed.

I would also like to try the skill, but can't contact you. Is there another way than this forum?

You can PM me on reddit, or just write me an email.

This is probably because addon doesn't build up library index until after first 20 seconds. I need to change this asap. I just don't ever stop my Kodi instance, so never actually bothered me.
No ETA on stop issue yet, sorry about that.


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - bmwrob - 2018-03-12

I received your mail, million thanks!


RE: Amazon Echo Alexa Video Skill for Kodi - willthethrill - 2018-03-12

Hi. thanks for this. Your recommendation was spot on!. After other issues I finally got everything to work. Will report of any future issues!

Great work indeed!

Hey. You should be able to find it somewhere (as many people did), or you can just PM me on reddit.
