I have a bunch of TV’s (LG webos) all with Chromecast on them. I have HA integrated with Google Assistant for most functions.
I would like to include music, and would prefer to have a local music library. I really don’t care what kind, and can host on linux or windows.
I want to be able to say something like “Hey Google, play a Hard Day’s Night by the Beatles on Living Room Cast”. Or some variation.
I do not want to subscribe to a monthly music service to make that happen.
I’ve spent about a day trying various combinations without luck; some work in pieces, some don’t, but none seem to get me toward the total path.
My fundamental problem is I do not know what SHOULD work toward this aim; too many possibilities. Or even if any combination will really work.
Could someone provide a pointer? For locally stored music, how can I get “Hey google, play xxxx” to work? What components should I be working on? Or should I give up, because Google insists on streaming from the cloud?
