    I followed them. But I cannot launch it and also (what I wish) Uninstall. Because is slowing Synology Nas and cannot use Plex adding more folders

    Solved thanks to ChuckPa:

    You can manually remove it.

    Stop PMS
    Open Control Panel - Shared Folders.
    Give your username permission to R/W in the Plex share
    Open File Station
    Navigate in the Plex share, through Library -> Plex Media Server -> Plug-ins
    Manually delete the .bundle file
    Start PMS

    What I've seen in your threads is that you had difficulties removing Plex Media Server. PlexConnect is a different app, and certainly not a plug-in (I wish it was, this would bring platform independence), therefore it does not installs in the Plug-ins folder. You only need PlexConnect if you use ATV2 or ATV3 as your media player.

    Synology should be able to use docker.
