Alexa skill to control local Chromecast devices. Check out the documentation on alexandra for setup instructions. You'll need to run it on the same network as your Chromecast.

TL;DR:

$ pip install -r requirements.txt
$ python server.py --device='Your Chromecast Name'

Then log in the Amazon Developer Portal to setup the skill.

usage

(assuming your trigger word is "chromecast")

  • "alexa, ask chromecast to skip this"
  • "alexa, ask chromecast to pause"
  • "alexa, ask chromecast to play"
  • "alexa, ask chromecast to reconnect"
    • if everything stops working this might fix it
  • "alexa, ask chromecast to reboot"
    • sometimes the chromecast gets itself into dumb states and needs to be restarted.
