How to install Plex
- Fire up the NAS, if it’s not already switched on.
- Log into the ADM OS.
- Launch App Center.
- Click on the search field in the top-right.
- Enter “Plex“.
- Click on “Install“.
- Wait for Plex to be installed, then launch it by clicking on the desktop icon.
That’s all there is to it. Now you’ll need to run through the initial Plex Media Server setup process, which should be a breeze if you’ve previously configured a Plex server.
Upgrade your media storage hub
It’s possible to use Plex for free, but if you want to take your media server to the next level, you’ll want to go for the Plex Pass. This unlocks various advantages, including hardware transcoding.
