    Hello everybody!
    At first sorry - my english ist not the best, I'm from germany. ;)

    I have the following suggestion / projekt-idea:
    I would like to say: "alexa, play my own music" - then alexa should play my own music from my Synology NAS

    - maybe this is to realize with: IFTTT, Tasker and Tasker-Plugins? but i don't know how to do this?!

    Here are some useful information about my devices & co:
    My smartphone is a Huawei Mate 20 Pro (Android 9) using it with apps like: Tasker & Plugins (AutoRemote, Notification Listener, Unified Remote, Auto Hue) and IFTTT.

    My NAS is a Synology DS 415+ - on this is a shared folder where the music is stored / DSM package: Audio Station / on my phone usable over DS audio app.

    smart speaker: Alexa (Echo Show ,Echo, Echo Dot - 2. Generation)

    how can I get the whole thing up and running?

    Thanks for writing and your English is fine! :)

    Unfortunately I don't think Alexa can play files from the network, can it?

    @joaomgcd

    as far as i know officially alexa can only play music from services like Spotify and Amazon Music.

    through other projects I have the following example:

    IFTTT Applet: If you say " Alexa xx xx xx" (Alexa trigger + Say a pacific phrase), then make a web request / works with Webhooks)
    - at my projekt i say " Alexa trigger PC an" (translatet Computer on) - interaction with IFTTT Webhooks, Autoremote, Tasker and WOL - turns on my computer.

    I was hoping this could be solved similarly???

    IFTTT: the IF part would also be Alexa say a pacific phrase / but I do not know what to set as the THEN part?

    via the DS Audio App I can play the music from the network on my smartphone, maybe i would have to start this via Tasker and/ or a Plugin?

    also i have to set Playing the music via Alexa...

    I don't know how to realize that, does somebody has any idea?
