Jellyfin on a Synology NAS – An EASY Installation Guide​


The benefits of using a Synology NAS to enjoy your decades of collected multimedia on all of your network client devices (Smart TV, Phones, Tablets, Console, etc) are all pretty well established. Alongside not having to pay the monthly/annual media subscription services of the likes of Netflix, Hulu, Disney+ and more to effectively ‘rent’ media, thanks to services like Jellyfin, you can scrape online databases for all of your box art, trailers, cast information etc and have your own media collected presented to you in anot dissimilar way to those paid subscription services – with media YOU OWN! Although a number of popular multimedia streaming platforms have grown in popularity, such as Plex and Emby, what sets Jellyfin apart from those is that it is 100% FREE. Plex locks a few services (such as hardware transcoding) behind a paid plex Pass subscription, Emby make some of the client applications paid-purchases (such as the mobile client), but Jellyfin continues to be championed as the perfect open-source and free-to-access/use multimedia private media server platform. HOWEVER, unlike Plex and Emby, Jellyfin is nowhere near as established in the App centers of the NAS brands – requiring a container creation and much more manually crafted installation, resigning its installation as a little trickier than those 2-click install apps. LUCKILY for Synology users, installation of Jellyfin on Synology NAS is now SO MUCH EASIER, thanks to supportive users on homebrew/community sites. So, today I want to guide you though the much easier way to setup Jellyfin on your Synology NAS.
