Plex on a zyxel nas326?

I bought my first NAS to use plex on it but i can't find a good tutorial on it and the text tutorials all have broken links. How do i install it?
And is there a way to have the NAS be displayed as a drive? The regular interface is really clunky and unappealing. 
Some talk about docks. What is it and does it make the NAS appear as a drive so i can edit freely?

    Rightclick the file, and choose 'Save link as' or equivalent.

    For Plex, you can install MetaRepository as described here, scroll down for details. Then you can install a Plex installer script, which allows you to install a Synology Plex package using the webGUI.

    In Windows you can view the contents of a share by putting \\<nas>\<share> in the address bar of explorer. On Linux (and I think also on macOS) you can use smb://<nas>/<share>

    That is the one that is the problem. There is no web_prefix to download. It only takes me to a blank side with the link text in the corner.
    How do I download web_prefix?

    I can exactly not read what is on the Plex wrapper page. But when the server is started there should be a button on the bottom which redirects you to the webpage of the Plex server itself.

    Hello @Mijzelf; As I have showed in my previeus enrty, when I clik the Web Interface link of Plex, I receive the 3rd photo (I have put below . 


    I say "ok" and continue. However it does not scan the files in the directory that I have defined.

    Ah, I see. You entered 'Movies2' as directory? In that case the problems is that the internal directory structure is different from the 'external', as in shares you see.

    Try '/i-data/sysvol/Movies2' (without quotes)
