Mycroft emby - No songs Returned


#1

Hi,

I recently got a raspberry 4b and replaced a v2 with it. I then migrated all services (mariadb, home assistant, etc.) to the 4b - working great by the way, but I had to use some dev-versions - especially I installed emby Version [4.2.0.23] which is working fine via the web interface.

Subsequently I installed picroft on the v2 board (knowing it’s not recommended), but it is working somehow. After hasseling with the emby-configuration I finally got the emby-skill to a somehow working state.
But I didn’t succeed playing music from picroft up to now.

As you can see in the following logs - it connects, it retrieves information , but doesn’t seem to know what to do with it:
06:47:14.084 - Emby - INFO - {‘media’: ‘appetite for destruction’, ‘utterance’: ‘play appetite for destruction from mb’}
06:47:14.412 - emby_rickyphewitt.emby_client - INFO - ?SearchTerm=appetite for destruction
06:47:14.459 - emby_rickyphewitt.emby_croft - INFO - Instant Mix potential match: 1987-Appetite for Destruction-album
06:47:14.498 - Emby - INFO - No songs Returned
Followed by output:

Unable to find or play appetite for destruction. Please try again.

I am positive that the potential match is correct, since that’s exactly how my folder is named.

So where to dig further? debug switches? logs to provide? skill beta version?emby settings?

I suspect the result of the dev-version of emby is different than the results expected?

Any ideas?

Maybe the following are a different topic:
07:07:32.576 - main:handle_utterance:62 - INFO - Utterance: [‘play album dark side of the moon’]
07:07:33.155 - Playback Control Skill - INFO - Resolving Player for: album dark side of the moon
07:07:33.700 - Emby - INFO - album dark side of the moon

07:07:33.704 - emby_rickyphewitt.emby_client - INFO - ?SearchTerm=album dark side of the moon
07:07:34.365 - Playback Control Skill - INFO - No matches

The skill includes “album” to the search term… is it supposed to do so?

Another example showing results, but not playing them:

Hi there,

Great to hear the Pi4 is working, I got mine last week but have had a newborn to contend with so haven’t had time to test it out.

I believe the Emby Skill is still a work in progress, though sounds like it is already working quite well. It would be best to create an issue on their Github Repo here as the Skill author will be notified about this so more likely to get a response straight from them:
