Alexa talks to PC server but not PS4

WiredguytvWiredguytv Posts: 2Members

Hi all,

I've just started setting up Plex with Alexa and my PS4. I've got Alexa connecting to my PC which has the Plex server running on it. And i have a dot next to my PC, and Alexa happily plays films on my PC. Yet I've set up Plex app and signed in on PS4, if I ask Alexa to play a film on my PS4 the film starts playing on my PC. I guess I need to tell Plex something so it picks up the PS4. Help i have no idea!!

    I am experiencing the same issue when attempting to play content on Plex PS4 via Alexa. Plex is working fine on my PS4 otherwise.

    Alexa is able to identify and set the PS4 Plex player, and can suggest titles or describe what is on deck. When I try to play a video, I get the following message: “Uh oh! Something weird just happened. Alarm bells are ringing around the world as Plex engineers are rushing to fix this issue.”

    I am able to play Plex video content using Alexa on my Windows browsers, as well as using my native LG TV Plex App. I suspect this issue is specific to the PS4 implementation.

    Has anyone else noticed this issue, or found a way to fix it?
