Synology NAS models like the DS218+ and DS1019+ already come packing Synology’s own packages (or apps) that can handle streaming to devices and whatnot, but to make things easier and more visually appealing, you can opt to use Plex. This service allows you to configure various content libraries that are automatically imported, checked over and sorted with a bunch of information downloaded from elsewhere (album art, metadata, etc.).
This guide will run you through installing and configuring Plex on a Synology NAS.
