OK, I have the Alexa Plex skill working--I can play movies and TV just fine, select different plex players (rasplex), even select servers (although I have only one)
I can play music if I ask to play just a specific song or band, IE:
me: "ask plex to play great big sea"
alexa: "shuffling music by great big sea"
action: a random playlist of songs by great big sea
now, when I want something even more random and I ask:
me: "ask plex to play some music"
alexa: "how about I throw on a recent favorite, would you like to listen to some music by bastille?"
alexa: "ok, enjoy bastille"
*at this point, it seems like it should start playing something, but nothing happens
There seems to be 3-4 different alexa responses to asking to play some music--the recent favorite, a record label based question, and a choice to listen to something recently played...all the different discussions with alexa go well, but result in the same output from plex---nothing.
I think I've got everything setup right--given that I can play a song or band, but this more complex interaction always ends in nothing happening.
Is this a bug? If this feature isn't supported yet, it should be removed from the production release until it works as this is very frustrating.
