Plex Webhooks & Fibaro

Question

Guest vipernor

Hi,

Have anyone looked at Plex Webhooks and got it to work with Fibaro?

I normally use Shad's KODI solution with a Plex fork on a RPI, but the better half use TV apps to look at movies/series.

Webhook Events

There are six events which cause webhooks to be hit, along with the name of the events in the payload:

  • Media starts playing (media.play). An appropriate poster is attached.
  • Media playback pauses (media.pause)
  • Media playback resumes (media.resume)
  • Media playback stops (media.stop)
  • Media is viewed (played past the 90% mark) (media.scrobble)
  • Media is rated (media.rate). A poster is also attached to this event.

Shouldn't be to much trouble getting this up and running or am I wrong..

Really curious if somebody has this up and running!

 

this is next level for me.

hope that somebody has the solution. 

 

I briefly looked at this before and thought that it should be possible using IFTTT (I'm not sure if a premium account will be needed) and

, although I see IFTTT now has the ability to filter the JSON payload so maybe the sequematic step is no longer needed.

I'll have a play and see if I can get it working.

never heard of sequematic but I will take a look at it.

 

Iam trying to control everything local without eternal control.

Wanna keep everything within the hc3.

 

I found a quickapp that can read out the status of what is playing and the duration of the movie, but nothing more.

I have it somewhat working with kodi and really like to have the same function with Plex.

well i have an kodi qa and with that one I could turn the light on/off/dim depending on the state of if the movie was playing or not(changed the code a little bit to get it working) and with the Plex qa I was hoping I could do the same.

Maybe my thought train is a little simple because my coding skills are are at an infend state.

And sinds i can see what movie there is playing I tought there is a connection between hc3 and Plex so it should be possible to implement some play/pauze/stop function to control some lights.

 

iam trying to understand Lua coding and I know , the less you understand something the bigger the confidents is.

So bear with me iam a total beginner

that sounds very interesting, what kind of tv are you using?

the QA on the marketplace of the samsung tv is not working with my tv.

there for iam looking for a seperate solution for kodi and plex.

or in the perfect world something to check the state of de nvidia shield (where i play my content from) and even set different automations for different apps.

what QA are you using?

In my case Quickapp follow the state of my TV on the plex server. Therefore, it doesn't matter what TV you use, or whatever else. On plex server every device (TV, smartphone, tablet, PS, nvdia Shield...) have own "machineIdentifier" what you can follow with QuickApp. I firstly use with Samsung UE55JU6072U and now with android TV Philips 65PUS8535/12.

There are 3 screenshots from my Quickapp:

- state 0 - plex on tv not playing

- state 1 - movie/serial is pauzed

- state 2 - movie/serial is playing

+ name of movie/serial

that's quite clever, first I have to figure out how to make a connection with my tv.

The Samsung quick app isn't working with my tv.

I will do some research how to do this.

Can you show me how you got the status from the Plex server, I only got the info showing info about the movie that was playing.
