How to get Alexa to tell Plex Player to play music

I've got my Echo Dot working with Plex, and I can ask it to start playback of video, and the video starts playing on my PC (or my Roku, YAY). But when I ask to start playing music, the audio always emanates from the Echo Dot itself. How can I get music to play through the currently selected Plex player app?

Here's a bit of a clue, but I don't know how to 'fix' such an issue. It seems as if Alexa's Plex skill being linked to my Plex server causes the Dot to assume I want to stream music from the server, rather than play music through the currently selected Plex player.
