So you have just installed our Alexa skill or found us on the internet and want to know how to set this up. Yes, here is the right place to look for information on how to get our Alexa skill up and running to listen to your own music collection on Amazon Echo speakers.

Have fun setting it up.

  • Setup Roomskills-MyMusic Skill

  • Setup of the Roomskills-MyMusic Skill

    Just search for the skills "Roomskills MyMusic" in your Alexa App and use the same email address as used in Roomskills to authorize the skill.

    After that the setup of the skill is complete start the skill by using the voice command

    Alexa, open music collection

    and you will be guided through the installation process.

  • Setup of the music server

  • Option 1: The easy way - Buy a pre-installed music server from us

    To play your own music with the Roomskills MyMusic Echo Skill you need to have a local music server up and running to serve the music to the Echo speakers. The setup of the server takes some time and therefore we provide a service to setup the server for you. Just buy a preinstalled server in our shop. You find the shop once you have logged into Roomskills.

    After you have received the server you need to copy your music to the USB stick and plug the USB-Stick back into the server. In order for the music server to find the music, the so called MP3 Tags for artist, name of the song, album artist and album name have to be correct and stored in the mp3 files.

    Then the server needs to be connected to your router or local network and be connected to the power supply.

    After the server has been started it should be reachable via the address.

    http://max2play

    And the music server itself should be reachable via the address.

    http://max2play:9000

    And the Roomskills Local Connect configuration page should be reachable via.

    http://max2play:32655

    The next step is to open the Roomskills Local Connect configuration page and login with your login data, then select the MyMusic Echo service and enter the server data, as follows:

    • LMS Server address: max2play
    • LMS Server HTML Port: 9000
    • LMS Server CLI Port: 9090
    • and no user password, unless you added this.

    After you have added this data the service should be visible as active.

    That was all. The music server is set up. The next step is to download and enable the Roomskills MyMusic skill in Alexa. You find a short description on how to do this below.

  • General information on setting up a music server yourself

    There are several ways to setup the music server. The music server is based on the Logitech Media Server (short LMS). The LMS can be installed almost on every computer, but a music server makes most sense, if it can stay turned on the whole time, ready to serve the music to the players. The installation packages can be found at

    http://downloads.slimdevices.com/nightly/?ver=7.9

    or

    http://downloads.slimdevices.com/nightly/?ver=8.0

    Then the music server has to be connected to Roomskills with Roomskills Local Connect. You find a detailed description on how this is done at "Download".

    After the installation you log into the app using your Roomskills username and password or using the Amazon Login function.

    Then you select the just created Musiccontrol LMS service in the drop down menu.

    Then you enter the configuration parameters like IP address of the LMS server, the port of the Logitech Mediaserver web page and if you did set-up a username and password you enter them as well.

    Every time a parameter is changed the configuration is tested and once everything works the service is shown as active.

    Next we go to the Roomskills page and click on the test button again. Now a success message get visible and we can start testing the Alexa skill.

    That was all. The music server is set up. The next step is to download and enable the Roomskills MyMusic skill in Alexa. You find a short description on how to do this below.

  • Option 2: QNAP NAS System
    • QNAP NAS: The installation on a QNAP NAS system is easy and done in 3 steps:
      • Add the QNAP club EU QPKG store to the QNAP App Center following the installation guide on https://www.qnapclub.eu/
      • Install the App "QLogitechMediaServer". This should be possible on almost all Qnap Models with the operating system version above QTS 4.0 (independent if ARM or Intel architekture)
      • Follow the installation steps and add your music library to the server. In order for the music server to find the music, the so called MP3 Tags for artist, name of the song, album artist and album name have to be correct and stored in the mp3 files.

    In the next step we have to set-up Roomskills Local Connect to connect the music server to Roomskills.

    You can find a detailed description on how to install Roomskills Local Connect at "Download".

    After the installation you log into the app using your Roomskills username and password or using the Amazon Login function.

    Then you select the just created Musiccontrol LMS service in the drop down menu.

    Then you enter the configuration parameters like IP address of the LMS server, the port of the Logitech Mediaserver web page and if you did set-up a username and password you enter them as well.

    Every time a parameter is changed the configuration is tested and once everything works the service is shown as active.

    Next we go to the Roomskills page and click on the test button again. Now the configuration page for the players should get visible and we can continue setting up the players.

    That was all. It might take a few seconds for the connection to be fully established, but now we can start testing the Alexa skill.
