Hello everyone, I'm trying to setup rclone with my Google Drive for my Plex server. But I need some help. I'm confused on couple of things and I hope I can get some help on how to get this setup.
How do I get started? I am lost honestly and searching just keeps me going down the same drain. I got some articles

Can someone please suggest me on how to get started? Thank you.
In general. Plex is more polished in certain areas and works better for me (Apple household) than Emby. Emby is more polished in terms of metadata fetching but lags behind on certain clients. You'll find folks on both sides and use what works best for you.
Emby is closed source and not open as that was changed in late 2018.
one problem / limitation i have to deal with.
i am using a special version of windows server 2019, called the hyper-v edition.
it is free to use and has refs file system that does checksumming of files and metadata and softraid, it is similar to zfs.
the serve has no gui, just command line, no windows explorer, no firefox, no control panel.
and as most apps for windows requires some basic gui.
also my setup is rather unique, compared to other users.
i use two rclones, one pointing to the other.
i do not use VFS and have only the most minimal of flags
i know most users have a dozen or more of flags but i find i do not need them.
i have a seedbox, which i use to download meda.
and on that seedbox, i have a local cryped remote that i move the media into.
and on that seebox i run rclone serve sftp pointing to that local crypted remote.
then on my home server, i vpn into the seedbox and i rclone mount that sftp server as the s: as read-only
i point emby to that s: drive.
on the seedbox rclone serve sftp lcrypt01: --addr=:9999 --user=username --pass=password
on the local server connected via vpn rclone mount seedboxsftp: s: --read-only
