Now that my Echo devices are capable of playing music directly from my Plex Media Server, I would love to be able to use it easily. Alas, what I perceive as simple requests typically result in apparent arguments between me and the Alexa/Plex interface. For example, I want to play the song "Frankenstein" by the Edgar Winter Group. If I say, "Alexa ask Plex to play Frankenstein" my Echo Dot replies that it cannot show movies and the Echo Show asks which Frankenstein movie I want to watch (I presume it is going to send it to my Roku, which was running the Plex App at the time.) I try to cancel and somehow end up being insulted, "Perhaps you should actually get off your couch and go to a movie" (or something like that). I eventually get the command canceled and try again with, "Alexa ask Plex to play "Frankenstein" by the Edgar Winter Group" and once again, I'm told the song cannot be found, but maybe I'd like a movie. I finally manage to cancel THAT command and try again with, "Alexa ask Plex to play Edgar Winter Group's song "Frankenstein"" and I'm told that there is nothing named "Edgar Winter Group." Cancel. Final attempt, "Alexa ask Plex to play music by the Edgar Winder Group" and the first song from "They Only Come Out At Night" starts playing. A few songs later, Frankenstein plays -- more than 30 minutes after I started trying to get the song to play. (Yeah, it was raining and I had too much free time that day. ;))
I thought that the title might be a problem, so I tried one that I know to be unique in my collection, "Alexa ask Plex to play 'Bohemian Rhapsody'." Nope. Plex cannot find the song. But once again, asking for music by Queen works and 'Bohemian Rhapsody" eventually plays. So I seem to only be able to ask Alexa to play by artist, not by song (or playlist, which I also tried.)
So, since I obviously cannot figure out the RIGHT way to make a simple request for a song by title, I'm asking for help. Anyone?
