I now this is for Siri and great for all Apple lovers out there.

Seeing as this uses the Google's Voice API, can it be ported to Android?
Would love to give it go, but I'm as far away from Apple as I prefer. Tongue

Technically I see no reason why not... but I have no idea about coding for Android...

His additions are on the main repo... so in theory all you need to do is update ...

Hallo there,

cant get this thing running... i installed using the installer and everything seems to work fine...

i use an iphone 4s and edited the host file so

guzzoni.apple.com points to 192.168.2.26 (= my xbmc)

when i start the server and use siri the output is like this:

INFO <module> Starting Server
INFO __init__ Listening on port 443
INFO handle_accept Incoming connection from ('192.168.2.37', 58601)
INFO handle_accept Incoming connection from ('192.168.2.37', 58602)
INFO handle_accept Incoming connection from ('192.168.2.37', 58603)
..
..


But all Siri "says" is "I am sorry there is a problem"... "I cant help you right now, try later"...

any ideas what i missed?

Cheers,

TheCooK

I haven't used it on a 4S yet but I'm pretty sure you have to direct guzzoni.apple.com to the computer where siriServer is installed and not to your XBMC installation. However it seems it is connecting to the server if it identifies the phone, might be a problem with your certificate...

I've installed and everything went quite smoothly, I've edited the XBMC.PY file entering host, username, password mac address etc - I was supposed to do that right?

Seems to work, I get the following output:

INFO read_next_object_from_unzipped Returning a Pong (11)
INFO process_recognized_speech Best matching result: "Xbmc info" with a confidence of 75.5%
INFO read_next_object_from_unzipped Received a Ping (12)
INFO read_next_object_from_unzipped Returning a Pong (12)

So it recognises what I say, but Siri just outputs:

'Sorry I don't understand Xbmc info'

What am I doing wrong?

@N3MIS15

Nope it was set to English (United Kingdom). Changed to English (United States) so now I'm getting a bit further.

It doesnt understand my accent I guess but I cant get 'XBMC info' understood for the life of me, keeps comming back with:

XBMC command not recognised: in 5

but at least its getting to the plugin now.

Tried XBMC PLAY movie - and it works!

Hey,
Nice Server. Everything works fine exempt the XBMC plugin.
It recognize the movie to play, Get the answer "movie starting" but then I get the the Answer: "There was an error during the processing of your request!"

Edit: Solved. Was still on 10.1. Updated to 11Beta 3 and it works.

to make xbmc work with siri you edit the xmbc.py plugin .. yes ? and you change host - port - username - password - mac address ? which part do you change in the xbmc.pny because when i open it up with note pad there are 2 lines , def __init__(self, host='appletv.local', port='8080', username=None, password=None, mac_address=None): or that one below or both ?

self.username = username
self.password = password
self.port = port
self.host = host
self.mac_address = mac_address

def get_url(self):

Is it possible to run the server on an IOS device?

I have an old iphone that I use in my car to play music.
I would like to use siri on my iphone 5 to start playing music on my iphone 4 that is running XBMC?

I don't think python can run on ios, obvi, but if anybody has any help or tips let me know.

Thanks.
