but is i go CMD and write
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ omxplayer teste.mp3

works, why on HA doesn´t work?

Try this - you may have to adjust the path to reflect your player:

 play_sound: sudo /usr/bin/omxplayer /homepi/musica/teste.mp3

for testing i can go to:
dev tools
Domain: shell_command
service: play_sound

and click


These steps should be works for testing?

how i know if omxplayer is instaled on /usb/bin? in my SAMBA Only see the folders HASS, and HOMEPI

Use console and change to the directory and do an ls. Pretty sure that is the correct path though.

This is why I use WinSCP though; you can connect as root and navigate the entire Pi. It’s kind of like the old Norton Commander - two window interface with local machine on left, Pi on the right.

ok rpitera already verified and i have omxplayer inside /usr/bin
and inside my shell_comand.yaml

sudo /usr/bin/omxplayer /homepi/musica/teste.mp3 but not working ,grrrrrrr
missing something??

This is where I got that from; maybe something it the thread will help you.
