Hi, what about using the Emby web app?

Oh, right you are.  I had no idea they had added a browser to that thing!  Thanks!

It would be cool to ask "Alexa, play Law and Order" and it starts playing at the Echo Show

I believe it is in-progress but requires a full and legit SSL setup for the server.

Apologies for the delay.

 

@tvinhas

 

Are you able to do some testing for me? I have it already in place, but it's never been tested. I think I need to connect a few things.

I can test.  I have a Fire TV Cube and Echo Show...and valid SSL on my Emby Server. 

Also, I think this is an @ebr thing, but could be Alexa API thing...how do we add support to the Fire TV App for In-App controls that we're just released:

At this point, that looks to be in Amazon's control, not ours.

Is this working? Do I need an SSL server?

 

Thanks.

This would be a big deal for emby if it could be accomplished. I'd prefer to be able to access and watch my media server on my echo show, has this been tested and implemented yet? It's been over a year. How can we move this along? I can do testing, let me know what you need.

I am pretty sure that Amazon does not want the competition to their pay for Prime service.

Regardless, Emby could integrate their api into the skill and provide full server access on the echo show. There are already other skills which have similar atttributes available. For example, CBSN skill streams free live streaming content to the echo show, as do many others already, like Watch TV with Stream Player or My Media skills. Neither requires prime, or cable subsc.. It's only a matter of time until this avenue opens up on the show. Maybe emby doesn't have the vision or talent to do this, maybe plex will beat them to it.

 

I'm just saying, it would be great to have this available.

Hi.  All of the options you listed above are streaming content to all users from a single source.  That is how devices like the Echo Show are designed but that is not how Emby works.  We stream content to people from their own (many times local) source.  That is not what the device is designed to do so it becomes a bit of a harder nut to crack.

 

Thanks.

Oddly I had a browser window show on my Echo Show the other day with the login to an internal web GUI device showing. I couldn't log in even though I tried as I couldn't figure out how to get a keyboard to type in the credentials. Could a local Emby Server be run through a browser window on the Echo Show? It is a novel idea as the Echo Show at our house is in the kitchen which overlooks the Family Room and that is where to watch TV.. Others may not have this scenario though.

These guys make local ip cams viewable on Echo Show. I use their app all the time without issue. Can Emby do something similar?

It is theoretically possible but it just takes a lot more work and there could be some severe bandwidth limitations depending on exactly how we can make it work.  These types of devices talk through the cloud, not on your local network.
