This is the new official home of Phlex.
What is Phlex? Phlex is a PHP Web application I've written that allows you to link your Google Home with your Plex collection and control playback to any device on the network capable of speaking Plex or Cast.
In addition, Phlex supports integration with Couchpotato, Sonarr, Radarr, and Sickbeard, allowing you to add media directly to your watch lists in any of these apps, giving you total voice control over your media collection!
Phlex is currently in a very early Beta, meaning there are still bugs to be worked out, and various minor annoyances and issues that have yet to be fully resolved. However, the vast majority of scenarios should work, and it can only get better as the project matures!!
To get started, all you have to do is hope on over to https://github.com/d8ahazard/Phlex and follow the instructions to get things set up. You will need to either install a webserver via Xampp (this is all in the instructions), or clone/download Phlex into an existing webserver. Once set up, you'll need to forward a port to Phlex so it can talk to the outside world, and then register your client with the Main Phlex server in order to allow account linking with Goooogle.
Optionally, you can set up a custom URL for your server if you have dynamic DNS, reverse proxy, etc. set up.
Once all the fun setup and networking hoops have been jumped through, you can browse to the web interface on your phone and copy your client's API token into your clipboard.
Ask your google home to talk to "Flex TV", and go into the Home app and finish linking your account using your copied API token. Presto talko. You can now ask Flex TV to play movies and shows, pause/stop/seek/etc. You can ask it to fetch a movie or show, and it'll do it.
Here's a little demo video:
I'll be updating this thread as time allows, but I wanted to get things rolling as soon as I could over here so folks could try it out. It sure seems as if the gHome thread could use a little action.
