How to tell AVS cloud server that we are using a display device?

I try to use "The Tonight Show" skill to play video In avs-device-sdk project. I can only reach an audio url like " https://s3.amazonaws.com/content-prod-tsjf-alexa-audio-us-east-1/Monologue.mp3" . However, it can show a video with the same voice command when using Echo Show!
Is there any parameter or configuration could tell AVS cloud server we are using a display device? In this case, we can get an video url in the json response.

Hi @NewUser-56b0f193-55c2-42f0-b86c-3d7a36e14380,

Thanks for your question. AVS does not currently support streaming video like this, as your testing confirms. This is not something that can be enabled currently within an AVS device. Amazon devices have access to this additional feature, however in most ways AVS provides exactly the same capabilities.

While we work to close small gaps like this between Amazon products and what AVS offers, I would suggest you add your question to our Feature Requests here. Thanks.
