Feature requests & roadmap / Re: Integration of streaming sites?

You can go that route. You will have whatever interface the application uses that you start, plus the ability to use the "mouse" control via Orbiter.

What would be nicer would be a real device template, which would talk to kodi's XML interface, send commands from buttons on your Orbiter remote. But that is much more work.

i have the code in a qt application i wrote im willing to hand over. But in being honest, i dont have time to really put into developing it fully.
It talks to kodi / xbmc over their http/json interface.

Hi To all,

Any updates on this?, have any of you had problems with the play and pause buttons?.  Pause works ok but if I press play is the same as stop!.  I cannot power up or down any MD from the power menu from this orbiter.


Can you describe the play / pause problem in more detail? im not seeing that issue.
I never wired those (md on/off) functions in. is there an open ticket?

So is there any clear way to fix this or just guess until something works?

Been stuck for over a week trying to install lmce again. close to giving up at this point.

High Level observations after working with google, smartthings

*Does every lmce box now support https connections?
*We cannot do this for only one service. We must develop a linuxmce web api. period! The upside is all these cloud connected services can utilize this one api, so we only have to do it the one time. Until they invent the next thing besides json...

My showstopper: user credentials. If you think about it for a second, we would basically be storing very sensitive account information for multiple services for a multi-tude of people. That makes users a very juicy target, plus we need to respect privacy between users. Im sure people know how to do this, I dont have much experience there but im confident as a group we could figure it out. kids shouldn't be able to sneak into the parents google account via linuxmce db diving, etc.

Ive settled on using cakephp in addition to webadmin. I know most people would think that this is something that would be rolled into the webadmin, but frankly the webadmin is big, ugly and it doesn't make sense from my standpoint to tack on a massive feature like this. cakephp would be able to  integrate into our existing database with some work but it provides a nice clean framework to provide a gui frontend if we choose, but a json api next to it from the same codebase.

I should also add that a c++ adapter would be in the mix purely for passing event into the linuxmce system (unless something better already exists) for sending events / anything else not directly connected to web api.

Kudos to you guys for also attacking this!

Hi all,

The amazon echo has final made it way to the UK and I'm excited to get my hands on one, just wondering if anyone had looked in to adding a Linuxmce skill to control basic home automation like lights and heating ect, it seems like someone has created a skill for our slightly common sister vera but it annoyingly connects via there in house web interface so even though the code has familiar terminology like Device Ids ect it just wont simply port over.

the amazon alexa system looks simple enough at creating a skill using node.js the issue i have is just trying to think of the best way of implementing a secure external api type interface so that the external amazon alexa voice service can send and receive commands to our internal DCErouter.

Just thought id put it out there and see if anyone had looked into this or had any ideas of the best way of implementing a solution.


Whats your development skillset?
I was looking into creating some interfaces for this, but it needs to be a 2 part system.
  • Simple http interface for doing the initial security handshake. google has some nice code for doing this, i did it successfully in my tests. It would need to be handled per cloud service: Alexa, Smartthings, google, iftt, etc
  • A proper http api exposing proper endpoints for these things to communicate.

i have been working on work and an xbmc device so ive been busy. but if you are serious, we can attack this problem and get something basic like light control going.

Ok.... im a bit at a loss for why its not working. Bear with me if my questions seem stupid.

*Are there scenarios under media?
*If there are, do they not respond when clicked?
*What happens when you change rooms?

ok, I opened a new thread for the auto-tagger.
Qorbiter on my second device is still not working. I cannot browse any kind of media. I did as you suggested. I downloaded the latest build I can get my grubby hands on. I uninstalled the old one from the phone, installed the new one. Upon opening I select the proper device, but I don't get any media presented. The rest seems to work. Having my tablet and my phone set to TV-Set and starting VDR, both are properly synchronised.

One other thing I came across checking the youtube-videos. I had asked you before about the built-in mediaplayer. I just wanted to check this again, but I cannot select "This Device" anymore. Right now I can switch between the areas in the house, but thats it.

Did you also 'clear settings' in the advanced screen?
