Plex does not recognize files that have been added by Google Drive until I log into Google Drive and click the newly uploaded file. I noticed that this updates the “Last Modified” field to the time that it was clicked and also changes it from the “Uploaded” to “Opened by me”.
Any idea what could be causing this and how I could address it?
I am using two machines. One downloads things to a local directory and then copies or moves them into the rclone mount. Things are visible from the rclone mount on this machine immediately.
The second machine serves content from the rclone mount via Plex. Things are not immediately visible from the rclone mount on this machine. I realize there is some caching at work here, but even in cases when I’ve waited multiple days, the items still don’t appear.
If you run the mount in debug, are you not seeing some polling events? I’d expect to see something along those lines if a file was uploaded via any means and the poller based on your mount config should catch it in normally a minute unless changed:
--poll-interval duration Time to wait between polling for changes. Must be smaller than dir-cache-time. Only on supported remotes. Set to 0 to disable. (default 1m0s)
