Yatse & Google Home & OmerTu/GoogleHomeKodi

Added by Vladislav 21 days ago

Hello,

Aim: Say: Ok, Google, start %MyArtistName% - Google Home starting playing mentioned artist

Prerequesites:
https://github.com/OmerTu/GoogleHomeKodi
Kodi on Windows machine
Yatse unlocked on Android

Currently when I say this to Google - Kodi starts playing on it, Yatse sees that but is not streaming back to Google Home.
In order to stream to Google Home I need to click play directly from Yatse.

Is there a way to control Kodi from Google Home and stream/cast back to Google Home?

Thanks!

P.S. I have also installed Kodi on Android in order to try launching Yatse as external playing using this manual:

I have modified it a bit in order to make it allow playing music, however this does not work as it should. It manages playing locally in Yatse but Casting then fails.

You can't do that using https://github.com/OmerTu/GoogleHomeKodi.

The only supported way current is to use Tasker and AutoVoice so that your Google home does talk to Yatse.

The other solution could be an hack but depends on how https://github.com/OmerTu/GoogleHomeKodi work and in all cases https://yatse.tv/redmine/projects/yatse/knowledgebase/articles/20 ;)

Already tried to use Tasker + Yatse tasker plugin but encountering issues. Autovoice sends request to Tasker. All logs are turned on but no errors are seen. It looks like Yatse Tasker plugin can not parse incoming request for some reason.
Anyway, not sure if this will let the music play directly on Google Home.
Currently I have successed with GoogleHomeKodi + Airfoil but Airfoil casting volume is far too low. Music plays very quiet but GH voice is very loud. May be it is an issue with Kodi?

Did I already said: https://yatse.tv/redmine/projects/yatse/knowledgebase/articles/20 ?

Kodi have nothing to do with volume with any of the possible setup you'd use.

The question is: Does Yatse streaming to Google Home works in case of Tasker & Autovoice?
This Way:
Google Home -> AutoVoice -> Tasker -> Tasker Yatse Plugin -> Yatse -> Cast to Google Home

There's no question I would not ask for logs if it was not supported, I would have said since the start it's not supported.

When I write: The only supported way current is to use Tasker and AutoVoice so that your Google home does talk to Yatse. I guess this does answer that question no?

RE: Yatse & Google Home & OmerTu/GoogleHomeKodi - Added by Vladislav 20 days ago

Using GoogleHomeKodi + Airfoild seems to be a cleaner scenario since only Windows machine is enough for everything but if volume issue will not be solved then will try to troubleshoot Tasker&Autovoice.
Is there a kind of possibility to use Yatse as external audio player for Kodi using playercorefactory.xml? Setting Google Chrome as Kodi's external player makes Kodi server not responding.
Is there a possiblity to run Yatse on Windows machine or is there an alternative Kodi streaming service wich runs on Windows machine?

Thank You!

I have gotten this work great with Tasker and Yatse. I tried so many different ways and couldn't get any of them to work. Part of it was issues was with my ISP not accepting incoming web requests. Then I downloaded the project file from Autovoice/AutoApps website (http://forum.joaoapps.com/index.php?resources/control-kodi-the-easy-way-with-autovoice-and-yatse.317/),I imported it into tasker on a android box (not running kodi) and it works as expected, excluding music with my other 3 android boxes. Works with my google home devices and my voice remote controllers.

So I managed it to work finally with IFTTT + Phlex + Plex combination. They now have fixed the code and it works much better than before.
