    Hi, I tried to read from the beginning this thread and I'm not sure if this plugin/skill combo would work on my configuration: I have a Logitech Media Server installed on an Ubuntu machine which also runs Squeezelite player for my USB DAC. So no hardware player. With this plugin I would be able to control the playing with Alexa (Echo dot)? Meaning to tell Alexa to play the current playlist, move next, volume up/down, etc ? Thank you !

    Hi Muntos

    It should work for you. Provided that the Squeezelite shows up in the LMS as a player, you'll be able to control it with the Alexa skill. I use softsqueeze in testing along with a range of hardware devices and it works perfectly.

    If you want to sign up for Alpha testing, set up an Amazon developer account and PM me the email address you used. It is still somewhat technical and there's always the risk of ruining your LMS set up so I understand why people might not want to get involved just yet but if you have a backup and are comfortable configuring your LMS, you should be fine.

    Yes, I believe that this is how it should look in LMS (attached screenshot). Don't mind to get my hands dirty to see it works...
    I'll open an developer account with Amazon and send you a PM with the email address. Thank you.

    Do I need to install SSL for this and if so how do I do it? This is on a raspberry Pi.

    Hi

    You don't need SSL for this to work. The plugin defaults to using https for connecting to and sending data back to the cloud-based skill. If you don't have SSL support in your LMS, the plugin will fall back to http. It will still work, it's just that your data is sent 'in the clear'

    One of the testers posted this in the project portal. It may work for you as well...

    I'm using Ubuntu here and to get the https working I ran the following command in Ubuntu:

    sudo apt-get install libnet-ssleay-perl libio-socket-ssl-perl

    Then I rebooted LMS and now my Alexa traffic is being sent via https.
    Let me know how you get on.

    Peter
