Playlist Command? Empty Playlist Command?

Post by Balzer Thu Jan 07, 2021 8:51 pm

Hello, I just discovered OurJukebox and trying to set it up.

I like it so far, but have one question.  I can't seem to get Alexa to play a playlist.  I know the playlists were uploaded, because they show on the file when I download the library report.

However, whenever I ask Alexa to "ask our jukebox to play playlist 'My Playlist'", it doesn't work, saying that it can't find a "song".  Am I asking the right question to have Alexa play a playlist?

Thanks!

Ah nevermind, I figured it out.  

I wasn't using the word "the" before "playlist" in my command!  

It works perfectly and loving the app/skill!

Thanks!

Hi Blazer,

How did you generate the playlists? I have playlists as m3u and as pls files - but they are not picked up by the indexer (library report shows zero playlists).

Also where did you placed them? Inside the album folders?

PS - I am running minidlna on Linux, all other mp3 files are working fine.

Thanks.

The playlists are .m3u and are placed in the root drive of my mp3 directory/folder on my server.

Thanks for the reply Blazer. Unfortunately, I am still struggling with playlists. Tried .m3u as well as .pls, placed at the root of the music directory (also experimented placing them inside a dedicated folder, or album folder, etc)... Nada, the indexer is ignoring them.

I am sure it should work - must be something I am doing wrong, maybe the paths inside the playlists, or the format...

Thanks again.
