Amazon/Alexa Integration

Postby scottl2k » Sun Aug 15, 2021 7:30 am

I know that a lot of people have asked for it.

I'm not sure how many requests you've had from registered lifetime users.

Add me to the list.

And add my commitment that I'll pay $100 if you add decent integration before I find a better answer. (I'm a Plex user... Subsonic is still better for playing my albums.)

I think your request will fall on deaf ears, since Subsonic hasn't seen an update in years. The closest you'll find is Airsonic Advanced (, which is a fork of a fork of a fork of Subsonic (Subsonic -> Libresonic -> Airsonic -> Airsonic Advanced).

That, or try Plex or Emby. I don't use Plex any longer, but Emby has pretty active development underway for the music side of things.

I commented on this in another sub-group. The main blocker is that Alexa skills need OAuth authentication through your Amazon account in order to identify you. There is no OAuth in Subsonic, so somebody would need to provide a wrapper that would allow you to store/associate your subsonic credentials (host, port, protocol, user, password) with the amazon user id so that the central place handles the skills and redirects the instruction over to the server in question which then returns the list of songs (with full play url) to actually play.

not impossible, but a bit of work (and potentially a bit of bandwidth).
