Did you get the lights + brigde? What do you think? :)

 

Not sure if you are still interested, but I have something working:

 

https://emby.media/c...ling-hue-light/

 

When video items start or un-pause, lights turn off. When video pauses or stops, lights are returned to their original state. Only options that are currently configurable is the transition time on the lights.

Let me see how much extra money I have to purchase a set of hue lights. If I do I'll write the plugin or I will add it to the Vera plugin.

This can be done.

Load backdrop bitmap.

Select points on the bitmap and get the RgB

Send hue lights the colour codes.

But it's going to be a while until I can afford a set.

Has there been any progress in implementing the Hue things (or better: do you already have the lights? :) )?

I would totally donate as well :) Really like the idea of changing the lights for different scenarios.

Would it even be possible to only activate the "light show" during night time? 

 

When I get a good deal for the new Hue 2.0 box, I got a free Hue 1.0 box to lend you for testing. Only thing that's missing is a light bulb :(

Well, unfortunately I am not Ina financial position to invest at the moment.

Perhaps in the upcoming months it could very well be a possiblity.

And yes, it is possible to code the lights to only set scenes at night. ;)

I am not really into programming for .NET unfortunately. Don't even own a Windows PC :(

Will nevertheless look into it and try to integrate the lights by my own. For a first step, just connecting to the bridge and trying to set a color. Thanks for the github link btw :)

 

 

EDIT: Ok, the first step is getting the IDE running with Ubuntu :D

Okay, first update ;)

 

The IDE is running perfectly fine and I already managed to create a simple configuration page, so that you can enter the Hue Bridge IP (or click the "Find" buttton). Now I'm going for the hard part: HueAPI requests :D

Kodi has this plug-in already: https://github.com/m...i.hue.ambilight

 

Would be sweet to have something similar for the new Emby Theater!

Is there a NuGet to help setup a plugin environment for emby theatre available on git?

I suppose s plugin which controls Phillip hue lighting. I bought some hue lighting.

But, I think I might try a server side plugin first to try out the hue API.

Then maybe try something else if it is successful.

Can't you control your Hue lighting with the already existing Vera system?

Yes, but there might be people who don't have a vera controller, so I have been looking into a standalone switch.

The hardest part is deciding what to do with it.

Dim lights a certain color based on media ratings? Red for rated R and green for rated G?? Lol!

Maybe process a backdrop image and choose a revelation color in it and display the light to something close. Not sure...

Well, then you have to own a Vera system. I do not. I think there are alot of people that own a Philips hue system, that do not own a Vera system.

Yup :) 

 

There is alot of cool things that could be done. But maybe the most useful functions I could think of now is:  Lights off when movie starts, lights on when movie stops, lights dimmed when movie paused etc :)

That's what I'm doing with my vera already, but it would be nice to skip the vera and directly control the lights with hue since it would eliminate some lag. That and content aware colors would be cool too.

So, if this would be a reality in the future, would it be a Emby Theater plug-in or a server plug-in?

If I had the skills I would love to make a simple plug-in :)
