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:
