Alexa video skill, lambda function is not getting triggered.

I have my videos hosted on my server. I have created a video skill to play those videos on fire TV using alexa video skill API. However, my lambda function is not getting triggered when I say "Alexa, play <video_title>". Is there anything else that needs to be done? I haven't done any catalog ingestion nor my videos data are on gracenote. Is this a necessary step?

Have you followed our documentation for testing here? To play any of your content, you'll need to do the catalog ingestion though.
