how to enable video functions?

i have my lambda properly configured and channel switching works but during device discovery my devices show a "this device does not support alexa-videofunctionality" message

Whats wrong there?

here ist my device discovery json returned by the Lambda:

{'header': {'payloadVersion': '3', 'namespace': 'Alexa.Discovery', 'name': 'Discover.Response', 'messageId': u'b1ab1bd7-0320-4e1a-bc05-0cc7ffc035f6'}, 'payload': {'endpoints': [{'description': u'Receiver im B\xfcro', 'endpointId': u'1', 'capabilities': [{'interface': 'Alexa.RemoteVideoPlayer', 'version': '1.0', 'type': 'AlexaInterface'}, {'interface': 'Alexa.ChannelController', 'version': '1.0', 'type': 'AlexaInterface'}, {'interface': 'Alexa.PlaybackController', 'version': '1.0', 'type': 'AlexaInterface'}], 'cookie': {}, 'manufacturerName': 'VU+', 'friendlyName': u'VU Uno4K', 'displayCategories': []}, {'description': u'Receiver im Wohnzimmer', 'endpointId': u'2', 'capabilities': [{'interface': 'Alexa.RemoteVideoPlayer', 'version': '1.0', 'type': 'AlexaInterface'}, {'interface': 'Alexa.ChannelController', 'version': '1.0', 'type': 'AlexaInterface'}, {'interface': 'Alexa.PlaybackController', 'version': '1.0', 'type': 'AlexaInterface'}], 'cookie': {}, 'manufacturerName': 'VU+', 'friendlyName': u'VU Ultimo4K', 'displayCategories': []}]}}

Am i missing something?

Thanks for bringing this up. In the short term, this is only a display issue; the devices should still work for utterances if they give the right capabilities in discovery response (despite what the GUI says).
