Amazon Music and Mini Media Player

No how many searches I do, or what I try, I cannot find (current) info on how to play music on my Amazon Echo devices. I’ve installed the Alexa Media Player from HACS and can send TTS easily. I installed the Custom Mini Media Player as well, but the only thing I can do with it is control the volume of a device that I have started manually. The Play/Pause button doesn’t even work. I’ve seen pictures of the media player that are customized with album artwork etc but no instructions on how to do so. Also, none of my echo devices show up in my media browser. Is there any current and accurate info on how to make any of this work (or is it even possible)? Any help is appreciated.

I too am unable to figure out how to do this. Were you able to figure it out?

Try something like this:

Thanks for the suggestion Dixey. Is there no way to browse the various media services/libraries already connected to Alexa?

I got my selections by just Alexa voice commands for the music I wanted and then copy/pasted what I found in the current attributes when you look at the entity in “Developer Tools / States”.

Sorry for my ignorance but where do you put this code.
