Can Echo connect to Plex directly (no roku or other player in the equation)?
I tried the Amazon Echo Plex skill shortly after it came out. After attempting to get it to work for a few days, I finally gave up. I could never get it to see my Roku device through the network, even though it was connected and could play content just fine.
However, I wonder if it would/could/should be possible to play music from my plex server through the echo without involving the Roku at all.
It makes sense for video to involve the roku. But if all I want to do is play music from my PMS through the Echo, shouldn’t it be possible to cut out all that extra stuff and let the Echo play audio from Plex?
In short, I want to be able to play music from my home computer on my Echo without having to upload all that music to Amazon. I was hoping this Plex/Alexa skill might be the answer. Does anyone know of a way to do this?
