When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Echo Show - Amazon Video vs. YouTube
« on: June 28, 2017, 03:38:19 pm »
Hey all,

Has anyone discovered any way to change default "show" results to be YouTube instead of Amazon Video? 95% of the time, the Amazon results are irrelevant.

Thanks

I do not have a Echo Show, but putting the Google Skill on there may work:

I have done it to my echo dots. It isn't all that hard, just follow the directions.

I have this enabled (and it's not all that great sadly) but no, this doesn't change the behavior of how the show is searching videos sadly.

I'd watch Youtube videos if they let me see and chose from my own list, rather than their top 50. Anyone know how?
