Hello thanks, I expressed myself a little hastily. So I installed Plex web from the package center, that works but I'm interested in the Plex media server so I downloaded the executable from the site to which the program refers you and installed it manually (always from the package center) but it doesn't work . I noticed that it creates a folder (Plex) I went to enable my account with logins but nothing

Hi everyone, I'm running DSM 6.2.3 on loader 104b (918+) in bare metal, I wanted to ask if anyone has installed Plex, I can't and I'm stuck by I don't know what. Thanks

I have installed plex in bare metal from the package center. Works great transcodes too.

Yes thanks. I finally managed to install Plex on Docker and everything seems to work correctly I just have to finish configuring it well because it doesn't "see" all the movies and music that are on the server. I also understood why the application install in the package center would not let me in; I typed in my domain and its port (32400) as I do for all the other applications I use, and it did not let me access, if I type the server ip the lan I enter as the version on docker. now since both work the question becomes, better (it consumes less resources) to run in docker or from normal installation ??? thanks

It isn't significantly different.  Docker is superior in my opinion because new Plex releases are available immediately, which trumps any minor question of system efficiency.

I'm not sure I follow you here?

In the package center, I only find Plex Media Server,

but it is not as up-to-date as the version available from plex.tv, that must be manually installed.

With a Plex-Pass you get PlexMediaServer-1.22.2.4282-a97b03fad-x86_64_DSM6.spk

and if you dont have it: PlexMediaServer-1.22.1.4275-48e10484b-x86_64_DSM6.spk

Both of them install, and runs as it is supposed to, but you must make sure the "Plex user" have correct rights to your files.

Hello yes in fact I downloaded it from Plex (the special version for synology) and installed it manually, but then I opted to install via Docker). Except that I have problems finding the folders where I have the movies, music, photos (there are 3 folders called Video, music and Photo on a single volume). I have to see why in the information found on the net (a Plex pdf manual cannot be found ... !!!!) it seems easy but it doesn't seem to me !!!! I don't know where I'm wrong

Your Plex container might not have the correct rights to read those folders, it's not really a "Plex" problem, but a user-rights problem, 

so a Plex .pdf manual would be of no real help ;-)

Done, I tried the manual installation from the package center (before I ran it via docker and I had probably misconfigured the installation, but on the other hand if I don't know and don't know how Plex works I couldn't know), now I see the folders and they are updating.Thank you
