Screencast: Your computer screen as an Alexa Smart Home Security Camera

This is a screencast I just put together showing how you can show your computer’s screen as an Alexa Smart Home Security Camera.

I wanted this because I already have security camera software running on a windows desktop … all I wanted was to say “Alexa, show security cameras” and see the software running on that computer.

Source referenced in the screencast is here

    this is amazing, do you think this could be extended to play actual movies from your pc to the echo show? are there time/space limitations of doing something like that?

      Hi, Edward, there is a timeout, I think 30 seconds, in the JSON response that describes the camera, but I’m not sure how long it can be extended to.
