How to Add an APL Video to an Alexa Skill

Recently, I was thinking that it would be cool if I could extend my knowledge of APL by learning how to add videos to my Alexa skills. This was one feature that I felt was important and that I was eager to learn. It was actually much simpler than I was expecting! Here are the steps:

  1. Create a video layout.
  2. Add that layout to your code.
  3. Add two directives to play your video.

And that’s it! You can watch my video where I explain these steps in detail.

Here is the link to my sample code for adding a video using APL.
