    In this link speak about this model and said that we don´t need créate the folder  \\<NAS>\admin\zy-pkgs.
    But I copied the files of fw5/  on admin folder but don´t run and I don´t know what I´m doing wrong.

    You should copy just the file web_prefix into the admin folder. After an update in the AppCenter you can install the package MetaRepository

    How I can download the web_prefix file if the link is down?
  • MijzelfMijzelf Posts: 1,022  Heroic Warrior Member
    Rightclick and 'save as'.

    Is a symple txt file only with the link to http://zyxel.diskstation.eu/Users/Mijzelf/zypkg-repo/web_prefix?
  • MijzelfMijzelf Posts: 1,022  Heroic Warrior Member
    No. It should be a text file with the link
    http://zyxel.diskstation.eu/Users/Mijzelf/zypkg-repo/
    But it isn't a simple text file in the meaning that it doesn't have an extension, and it has a Linux line ending. So you can't create it with, for instance, Notepad.

    Some text has disappeared on that page for some reason. The text which should be there is

    Install

    Due to licensing and hosting problems this package does not contain the Plex Media Server itself, only an installer- and start script.

    1 Download
    Your box runs an ARMv7 processor. You can download the package for Synology ARMv7 here.

    2 Upload

    3 Install


    So the idea is that you download a Synology Armv7 package to your PC, upload it to the NAS542, and install it.

    Hi!!!
    Is the package os Synology Armv7 compatible with our Zyxel NAS? From where we can download it?

    Thanks!!!!

    Is the package os Synology Armv7 compatible with our Zyxel NAS?

    Sort of. The binary runs on the processor, and the PlexMediaServer zypkg creates a fake Synology environment for it.

    From where we can download it?
    The 'here'  on your webpage is a hyperlink.
