It doesnt work for me (tested on 2 devices: echo dot, and Sonos ONE)

I asked Alexa: ask m.b. home play the playlist {playlist}

 

and got : anything else 

 

another answer: no such playlist..

 

Can this be checked, pls ?

and btw: i managed to "Begin m.b. home" on both devices. but after

 

both of them could not recognize any playlist, but can start playing album.

 

Also, after - via echo i can control stop/play/pause, but not via sonos - it simply telling - Could not connect to youe emby skill.

Yes. Thanks for your patience. I will definitely fix this, but can you let me know of an example of the playlist name you are trying to play? This works for me at the moment.

HI, 

 

now it can pickup playlist - which is great. But...

 

When im asking Alexa to play any Album - it plays it on echo device - which is expected.

When im asking to play Playlist - Alexa asks on which player. It simply doesnt want to play on the same echo device(or any echo device), but can play on another player like browser, tv, etc. 

 

I think - the last thats not expected and incorrect behaviour. Can this be fixed as well, please.

playlist playback on the echo device isn't supported as of yet - see the below thread:

Angel is looking into adding this to the skill in the future

didnt know that. Thanks for info.

 

I'm really keen to see this feature, maybe most useful if you have a big music collection. 

 

What about issue with Sonos : Play/Stop/Next/etc ? Is this the same issue as described in FAQ for MyMedia (https://www.mymediaalexa.com/) - Sonos doesnt support all player API ? or this is another bug that can be resolved ?

For the Sonos, I'd have to see the request in log. If you can try it and tell me the time you tried it at. I will check the logs and keep you posted on if it can be resolved.

 

I will add support for the playlist to be played directly on the echo and let you know when it's ready to be tested.
