KODI_PASSWORD="YOUR_KODI_PASSWORD"
AUTH_TOKEN="YOUR_CONNECTION_PASSWORD"


Within .env file. There is already text within that file so I don't know if I need to add it to the middle or the top or delete the text within that section. I'm pretty sure I followed the steps right but its not showing me anything on Kodi. Google replies.

Side note couldn't this work with Alexa also? It would be Alexa trigger bla bla right?

Please someone give me hand with this I'm stuck. Lol
Hey,
It may be easier to help from GitHub project (you could open an issue there).

You can remove the text in the .env file and replace it with the above text.
For example, if you port is 8080 you should write
KODI_PORT="8080"

Google will replay even if it doesn't work.. so that's not really a good indication if you set up things correctly.

Try pausing a video on Kodi by entering this in your browser:
http://YOUR_EXTERNAL_KODI_IP:PORT/jsonrpc?request={"jsonrpc":"2.0","id":1,"method":"Player.playpause","params":{"playerid":1}}
If you get prompt to enter username and password choose the ones you set in Kodi.
If that doesn't work you probably have a problem with Kodi or your router.

I'm not familiar with the Alexa set up.

the external app doesn't log up anything for me
