That's okay bill, I wrote the back end code for a plugin that will run processes.

If your busy,, no worries the UI only needs an input and a button.

I got it. I'll send it to princess and she can test it this weekend :)

Hello all

 

I have a freenas sever that runs emby server that feeds KODI media player, thanks to the folks on this forum all works very well. 

 

My next project would be to command  Alexa to alsk emby to play videos or music via vera, so i can ask alexa to play something via kodi, maybe through the emby plugin for kodi

 

I know that this is not the purpose of the vera plugin at the moment and you are only focusing on lights.

 

My question to you all would be:

 

do you expect to develop this integration and functionality in the near future? or am i dreaming poies in the sky? 

 

Thank you

There is already a native Emby plugin for Alexa to control emby by voice commands through Alexa

Hello thank for the quick reply

 

Yes i do control my vera scenes via alexa at the moment.

 

How ever would this extend to running scenes to play videos and music?

You don’t need Vera to control emby using voice.
There is an emby skill for Alex

Hi Thanks 

 

Yes i understand 

 

however can i issue a command to alexa to play a playlist in Kodi or

ask alexa to play a movie in kodi.

 

Since kodi has the emby plugin I would imagine that this could be a future development

Hello Thank you for responding an a saturday

 

sorry for my ignorance but what does this code do?

local dID = 595

local status = luup.variable_get("urn:upnp-org:serviceId:VSwitch1", "Status", dID)

if status ~= “1” then return false

end luup.inet.wget "http://i.p.address:8010/dson" return true

 

I see it to simple to do what i am looking for

 

example

 

alexa play die hard on HTPC1

alexa stop die hard on htpc1

alexa play afternoon.m3u on htpc

You can achieve this in two ways as I see it an easy way and a hard way.
1. Use emby app for Alexa
2. Use a combination of Rigpapa’s emby plugin for Vera, several scenes exposed to Alexa and a voice Routine in Alexa for each

I can't find any info on webhooks in Emby.  I found a reference to a plugin, but don't see anything in the catalog.

@Luke how do Emby webhooks work?  Is it in the released Windows server or only in beta at this point?

 

There will be a new webhooks plugin with the upcoming Emby Server 4.3:
