Alexa Cannot connect to server

Recommended Posts

BCCarey

I have successfully connected the alexa skill to Emby connect and I chose the proper server, but if I try to issue any command via alexa I just get the response "I can't reach your emby server.  Make sure yada yada yada".  I can browse the server remotely.  It works on my phone.  it works over the internet via my android tv that is at my cabin.  Does the alexa skill require SSL?  I do not have a cert installed and secure connection mode is set to disabled.

Nevermind I got it connecting, but doesnt look like it works properly with firetv as your only alexa device.

If you attempt to use a firetv remote as your voice input for alexa to play a video for example.  It understands the request but dumps you out to the firetv home screen.  If you use a different device, I used alexa on my phone, it properly launches the video for playing.
