I come to you in desperation
For the last couple of weeks I have been trying to set up plex on my my cloud ex2 ulta. I believe this is possible. I would like it installed on the NAS rather than my laptop so I can access it when the laptop is off view the ps3 app, google chromecast and mobile phones. I plan to use ps3 and chrome cast as players as my tvs are Panasonic which I don’t believe support the plex app.
I have searched a lot and not found an answer. The process that I have followed so far is. Open the WD dashboard and go to app section. Install the plex app which exists there, then select configure. Configure opens the web browser and takes me to the plex log in where I log into my plex account, where I get a screen telling me to ‘To get started streaming your media everywhere, download and install Plex Media Server on the computer or device where you keep your media.’
I have installed the windows based plex application which asks for a restart then takes me back to the same screen asking me to install plex again. Have gone round in circles on this.
I am not sure a windows based installation is what I need but the other option to download for nas only generates a bin file which I am not sure what to do with. Also I was under the impression that plex was already installed on the nas via the dashboard where I selected the configure option.
I am confused and could do with some guidance as I refuse to give up as I am pretty sure what I am aiming for is possible, any advice would be great as I seem to be going around in circles.
