Can not get the request when show camera in smart home skill

I try to enable the smarthome skill, but I get some problem

Step 1: Alexa, discover devices -----OK(Can get log and response)

Step 2: Alexa, show living room camera----- NOT OK

Always CAN NOT GET LOG and Request, and the response is : Sorry, cameras don't work on this device. WHY any request can not show in log? Do I use the wrong command to show camera ?

Hello and thank you for your message.

The Test tab on the developer portal does not support testing of video or audio skills.

Hello and thank you for your message.

It is also not possible to use smart home camera skills from within the Alexa app. If you do not have an Echo device with screen to test, you can use the VLC app to check if the stream URL works and also make sure that the requisites for Alexa.CameraStreamController Interface or Alexa.RTCSessionController Interface are fulfilled.
