MMM-MirrorMirrorOnTheWall installation issue



  • @oceank I did follow the guide, and put the necessary api keys. I will redo the steps, maybe I missed something.



  • @oceank I redid the steps. Just to be clear, I need to do only the api steps right? not installing whatever they are saying there?

    I keep getting the same message after I re-uploaded to lamba with new api keys.



  • @Radu_Stancu exactly just the API steps. when you made the custom search engine did you do :

    1. Enable Image Search
      In your search engine settings, enable “Image search”:

    and I think you need 2 different projects at google developers console

    1. google search (add google custom engine, and make the API key)
    2. youtube (add the youtube data v3? I think its called, and the make API key)


  • @oceank I can confirm search images is on. I have also added youtube javascript v3 to the api. Are you sure 2 different projects are required?



  • @radu_stancu well I have read that in some forums that it was required. When I had 1 project with 2 different API it didnt work for me so thats why I tryed the other option with 2 seperate projects and API and then it worked for me.



  • @oceank Okay, I`ll try that now. Nothing changed unfortunately…



  • @radu_stancu

    did you check the cloudwatch logs? see what error you get…



  • @oceank I can`t seem to find anything relevant in the logs… I keep getting

    Amazon Photos is not supported on this device. View your photos using the Amazon Photos app or website, or on devices like Fire TV or Echo Show.

    and similar for videos.



  • @Radu_Stancu

    so how do you trigger the search for videos or pictures?

    seems that its not triggering the magic mirror module, seems that its trying to use some amazon service?

    Are you saying this to alexa?

    alexa…magic mirror…and then the whole hello my queen is going on. and then you say “find pictures of apples”

    or how do you trigger the syntax?



  • @oceank I start with Alexa, start magic mirror, which works just fine. Then Search image of apples, find image of apple or any other possible way of saying I want an image of an apple results in:

    Amazon Photos is not supported on this device. View your photos using the Amazon Photos app or website, or on devices like Fire TV or Echo Show.

    for videos I get:

    I couldn’t find any enabled video skills that can find that. Go to the Alexa app to manage your video skills and devices.

    #Solved. Forgot to modify the app ID line pointed out a few pages ago. Waiting for my echo dot to arrive to play around.
