The skill actually works pretty well - I really like the ability to transfer the stream between players - but the invocation name is a pain. You have to speak the invocation SLOWLY and treat it as three distinct words: M. B. Home (hit the M hard) to avoid errors like "the skill is no longer available". Alexa seems to be unable to distinguish between "m"and "n"when listening and tries to interpret by context - unfortunately ""Emby"" really doesn't have an obvious reference so it usually guesses wrong and tosses an error instead. Hate to see the developer have to redo this a third time but also don't quite understand why Emby needs to be in the invocation as opposed to a more easily distinguishable name. Alexa sounds nothing like Amazon, Bixby isn't even close to Samsung...the important thing is to make it work properly and conveniently for the users or it causes more harm than good for the product's rep.
install the skill only to be disapointed that it will not work how the emby website says it will. it cannot access the app through firetv however instead it tries to bridge your account and never actually does anything. useless and a waste of time. another bait to get you to pay for emby premier that leaves you disapointed.

I read these horrible reviews of this app and decided not to down load. This is what you do to get Emby on your Show. Say Alexa, open Firefox. type in your Emby server URL. Select the pin icon on the Firefox browser window to set Emby as your home page.
i have a 32TB array chock full and emby works great, I have been using emby for years. (even back before it was called emby) this skill however..... When I try to use the skill, alexa tells me the skill is no longer available, even though I just connected to it and it is still showing up on this site. If it is gone then take it off this site. If it is not FIX IT.... I hate to see a great app (emby) get a bad rep for this poor working skill.
