Decrease buffering

When my brother is playing movies from my plex server from the internet he gets buffering every 3 minutes or so.

How can I prevent buffering?

rclone mount plex-encrypt:/plex "%h/mediaserver/media" \

--cache-dir "%h/mediaserver/.cache" \

--gid 1000 \

--uid 1000 \

--vfs-cache-mode writes \

--vfs-cache-poll-interval 20m \

--vfs-cache-max-age 8760h \

--vfs-cache-max-size 15G \

--attr-timeout 8700h \

--dir-cache-time 8760h \

--poll-interval 30s \

--allow-other \



when you posted, you should have been asked for information, is there a reason you did not post it?

it is good to be sure of each and every flag.
i could be wrong that --fast-list does nothing on a mount.

Sorry. I thought it wouldn't be necessary.

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Everything works find. However, when user tries to play movie from Plex server through internet (not local), he gets buffering every 3 minutes or so.

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

rclone v1.52.3
os/arch: linux/amd64
go version: go1.14.7

Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

Arch Linux - amd64 - LTS kernel

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

Google Drive

Trying to provide other information, but I don't have access to the server right now. I've set the remote > cache > encryption

you need to supply the needed info.

  • what is the exact version of rclone?
  • post a debug log.
  • post your commands.
  • if you are using a cache backend, i suggest that you remove it

Updated information to what I have access rn.
Oh! Removing cache, then.

What's the bitrate of the item you are playing?
Are you transcoding / direct stream or direct play?
What's your internet speed?

I think I've fixed the issue by adding these to my command:

--buffer-size 200M \
--vfs-read-chunk-size 50M \
--vfs-read-chunk-size-limit 150M \

Also removed --fast-list, as it doesn't help with anything on the mount.

Removed the cache backend, as recommended by asdffdsa.
