    Thats cool :cool: How many days tweaking did you spend to make it work?
    1 day for Plugin, 1 day for settings, 1-3 for beauty tweaks, now it works the way I need it at the moment. All in all, it didn't take more than three days. And it wasn't full, I had to do household chores.

    Back in 2018, I bought an Alexa speaker and as proof of concept developed a skill to control MediaPortal 1 (Toggle Playback Pause/Play and Stop) with it. I've been using it since, but didn't put much more effort into it. Didn't really have the time (still don't) for publishing and supporting it.

    If there is actually interest, I could try to make it official.
    The end-user setup is pretty easy, nothing as the Kodi stuff described in this thread... All you need is an Amazon Account to link MediaPortal with the Skill.

    That's not so much time. Maybe I'm still keeping the complicated Kodi solution in mind.
    Maybe you can also share it, so others can extend it further. I'd love to implement into MP2, but that's beyond my skills :whistle:

    Is this related to voice control or just the share the web surface?

    Back in 2018 I bought also my first Alexa, meanwhile every room has once, because it's a full smart home :)
    Is it possible to develop personal skills, that are not visible to all on amazon? I searched once for any mediaportal skill and the keyword was unknown.
    Of course it would be really cool to share at least the code here, so we have besides @ajs google solution also an alela solution as base, that somebody might be interested to extend. I believe there is a big user-base for speach control.

    In the end there is nothing concrete for MP2 yet, but better than nothing ;)
    If there is a base it could be also easier transported.

    I can say that this is a byproduct of the connection Media Portal and Home Assistant, all control on the side of Home Assistant, voice control of any assistant, Alexa, Google, Maria, Alisa is already a problem Home Assistant.
    But in general, since the control is through MQTT, you can use any smart home that supports this mode.

    Amazon just publlished my skill:
    The Description contains a download link for the MP1 plugin. I leave it like this for now, so someone can test and give feedback ;)
    That it good news. With the public skill I can also understand how it's working now. I was a bit wondering how you made it work without a skill ;)
    Unfortunately I can not test MP1, I'm only usinf MP2 as productive system.

    In case it is working, are you willing to push the source code of the plugin to github, so somebody might transfer it also to MP2?
    I've never created a skill, is that rocket science, ot compared to the plugin for MP rather easy? :whistle:

    I installed MP1 to just test the skill. I configured the client plugin and alexa skill (both linked and enabled). I can can not play , pause or stop any playback. Alexa always says "I don't know this".
    I'm going to uninstall MP1 again, because the mouse controls and skin scare me :confused:;)

    "TV Server" can produce logs with various levels of detail. The level that has the most detail is DEBUG level, but this is not the default. So the first thing that you need to do is start "TV Server Config" and change the log level to DEBUG; see this page in the Wiki. Actually, I run my HTPC with the log level set to DEBUG all of the...

    MP1 MP2 MP2 DLNA status? DE
    What I meant is that we have a MP2 plugin called UPnP Render that can play media from DLNA servers if I remember correctly. I don't know the current state of the plugin though. That's why MP2 probably never will be certified. ;) Yes, that was also the idea, but it is a big job as all TV's, software etc. seems to not do everything...

    That's fun. I shattered my kneecap on one of those e-scooters. I'm terribly out of shape from the months of being bedridden. I didn't get fat, at least, but a walk in the park is not an expression of something being easy anymore.
