said "stop" to Alexa but got "pause" request in my video skill lambda function

User said "stop" to Alexa (and history shows "stop" literally) but my video skill lambda function receives "pause" request. I did enable "stop" operation in device discovery. Please check your side if anything goes wrong.

{
    "type": "AlexaInterface",
    "interface": "Alexa.PlaybackController",
    "version": "3",
    "supportedOperations": [
        "Play", "Pause", "Stop", "FastForward",
        "Rewind", "StartOver",
    ]
},

I am trying to create video skill for past 1 month but my lambda is not getting triggered for command Alexa Play "video-name". When I say discovery command lambda gets triggered. How to play videos on Firetv using Alexa and make my lambda work for Play command. Is content catalog ingestion a necessary step. If yes than how to do it. Please help me. If you can help me it would be a great help .

@Tsuneki@Amazon I have exactly the same problem. Multiple beta users of my skill are reporting this, on different devices and Echo devices.
