How to Connect Kodi to Your Synology NAS DSM (DiskStation Manager)

If one of your purposes to have bought a Synology NAS was to have it as a media server, then having Kodi in your PC/Mac/Fire TV is a must. By now you probably know that your Synology NAS gives you an option to install Plex in the NAS itself, however Plex cannot play everything, unlike Kodi.
