Plex Skill for Alexa
#1
The Alexa/Echo device now has a Plex skill.  It needs some work IMO, but you can play movies, pause, etc. When you stop a movie, it will often go on with another, probably one I have in the queue Smile

Yeah it works ok. I wish it remembered the players more like Google Cast does. Switching players is a PITA, usually I only have one in use so it would be nice if it figured out which one for me automagically instead of making me say it or set it.

Also the recognition is maybe 75% accurate for me, meaning 1 in 4 chance of it selecting the wrong show or movie. It always picks something though Smile

Is there a way to set the player programatically?  From CQC?
