[QUOTE="Ian, post: 14266378, member: 1"] Thanks [USER=7906]@V_R[/USER], fixed that now :D. Docker is a software container platform, where you can download an app/server/package with a couple of clicks and then configure it to run in a virtualised container. For example, you could run Plex in a Docker container and configure it to be allowed to use 1CPU, 2GB RAM and however much disk space. I use it extensively, as I can download Dockers for PHP/MySQL/nginx etc... and run a webserver in a few minutes. Docker containers can be run on Linux, Windows, Mac and all sorts of other operating systems. They're OS independent and there's a huge repository here: [URL]https://hub.docker.com/[/URL] It was recommended to me a long time ago, but I didn't start using it till a couple of years ago - and I haven't looked back. One of the first things I set up was a Plex server - it took about 2 mins to get it up and running :). Everything was set to automatic, although I did find that it struggled on occasion when I tried to force it to transcode a 1080p 5.1 Stream on the fly. If we use Direct Play/Direct Stream, then it didn't get troubled at all. If this NAS gets hardware acceleration enabled in Plex for transcoding, I think it'll be a good choice if direct stream isn't available. I'm using QNAP for our Plex streaming at the moment and the CPU is barely troubled when transcoding is required. We've got a TV tuner and use Plex as our DVR (a little buggy, but improving rapidly!).
