Getting PLEX to run directly from Synology NAS
I have PLEX installed on 2 different computers (an iMac and a MacBookAir) with media library on Synology DS-418play, and all works well (streaming to AppleTV, to all iOS devices, to LG Smart TV app) as long as my NAS is mounted on whichever computer I'm serving the files from.
My problem comes when I install and launch PLEX from the DS-418play itself, and try to open it by selecting <http://my-NAS address:32400/web> ---- I always get "Safari can't open the page <my-NAS-address:32400/web> because Safari can't connect to the server "
I have manually installed the latest version of PLEX to my DS-418play, which is version 1.12.0 --- since Synology is a bit late in updating its package center with the latest PLEX offering. But even when I open this updated version of PLEX directly on my DS-418play, I get the same error message that Safari can't connect to the server .
So I'm just STUCK at this point.
(I can serve media files from my computer, grabbing source files from my Synology NAS, but I can't get the PLEX package to run from the Synology NAS itself.)
Where to go from here?
