Connecting emby to Amazon Alexa


Best Answer Angelblue05 , 28 July 2019 - 08:30 PM

Emby connect is indeed required at this time. This may change in the future for various reasons. The reason is these devices need a secure connection to complete the account linking process and Emby connect is the only way to guarantee this. Go to the full post

Hello.

 

i have a new user to emby. They are not the brightest and I have zero knowledge of Amazon Devices (and am happy this way).

I think they have an Amazon Alexa speaker, maybe an echo,.

They want to connect this to Emby.

 

Do they need to have an emby connect account?

if so I need to know no more. I am not interested in setting up anything but a direct connection to my server.

If it does not need connect I will look into it further for them, else I will tell them its not possible and try to talk them into getting a chromecast.

 

Cheers.

OK thanks. I will tell them not possible at this time.

Not sure why they want to use a little echo device when they have a perfectly good hi-fi system.

I use an Amazon Tap (rechargable) to be able to move around the house and yard with music on Emby. It's great.
