Hi All, does anyone here know of a plugin that can communicate with the LM media server using an Echo ? - I've seen some posts which seem to involve having a AWS developer account and a lot of Web type knowledge to install it but that's a bit much for me :-(

I am using the plugin you mention and installation no longer requires any complicated steps, it installs like any other plugin. I think when it reaches the beta stage a developer account will no longer be necessary but if you are interested just ask the question in that thread.

The web account and integration is a consequence of the architecture of Alexa - where all request go through Amazon and then passed back to the device being controlled. IIRC The architecture is aimed at vendors/service operators doing the Alexa stuff for customers or individual doing something for themselves. (i.e developer)

Hi there, where do i get the plugin ?It is best to ask on the thread as there is an Alexa skill to accompany the plugin. At the moment it is still in the alpha stage. I would add a link to the thread but Tapatalk doesn't make it easy.
