smarthome > CameraStreamController > expirationTime is not working


I need your help.

We are in the process of developing "smart home skills" to stream video through "Echo Show".

The video plays well.

However, I would like to automatically stop playback on an "ehco show" after a certain amount of time.

The response to a request for "Alexa.CameraStreamController" is:

    "event": {
        "payload": {
            "cameraStreams": [
                    "protocol": "RTSP",
                    "expirationTime": "2018-02-23T09:58:32.29Z",
                    "authorizationType": "NONE",
                    "idleTimeoutSeconds": 30,
                    "audioCodec": "G711",
                    "uri": "rtsp://streamurl",
                    "resolution": {
                        "width": 1280,
                        "height": 720
                    "videoCodec": "H264"
        "header": {
            "payloadVersion": "3",
            "namespace": "Alexa.CameraStreamController",
            "name": "Response",
            "messageId": "......",
            "correlationToken": "........"

I have determined that "expirationTime" is the end time of the video.However, streaming continues to play even after the time has elapsed!"expirationTime" was setted in UTC time as required by "".

The description of "expirationTime" is :

A date in ISO 8601 format indicating the expiration time of the stream. Should be specified in UTC.

please. help me.

I am waiting for your help.Thank you. Have a nice day :)

I am facing this issue. The stream never expires even if the expiration time is specified in the response.

{ "event":{ "header":{






"payload":{ "cameraStreams":[


"uri":"rtsp stream uri",
