What is the problem you are having with rclone?
I'm setting up an Emby server with a rclone mounted encrypted Google Drive. There is only one user (this may expand to two in the future) and this is entirely local.
The issue that I'm having is the content plays, but there is very quick buffer (< 1 second) periodically. When my server is further away from the primary router, the buffer occurs every 1-2 seconds. When my server and client connected to the same modem/router, the buffer occurs every 30-ish seconds. I have gigabit internet (up and down). When my server is far away from the primary router, I get about 400Mbps/400Mbps. When my server is connected to the same modem/router I get close to the full speeds.
When I look at the Ethernet tab within Task Manager, I do notice that the buffers always occurs when the "Send" and "Receive" drop down to 0 Mbps for some reason. Whenever there is any data transfer no matter how small, the file plays seamlessly.
I've been primarily testing with my highest bitrate media, a UHD version of The Shining which has an average bitrate of about 80 Mbps (but I believe spikes above 100 Mbps occasionally). When I have the media on a local harddrive, it has able to play just fine.
However, I did notice on lower bitrate media (~50 Mbps), the same occasional buffer occurs. On extremely low bitrate media (~7 Kbps), I don't believe there was any buffering.
I am using my own api key with Google.
Any advice on how to remove this buffering would be wonderful! I've spent a few days reading through the other threads in this forum and I have to say, the support here is great and responses are extremely detailed, which helped me to get my current command. My ultimate goal would be to leave my server further away from my client (to reduce fan noise), but if that's not possible, that's fine as well!.

This log is from when my server was further away from my primary router, so it paused every 1-2 seconds.
