Help with rclone mount for Plex

I have been using a rclone mount to view media I have on google drive through plex. For the most part everything has been working fine however I have encountered unwatchable buffering issues with files over 70 Mbps. I have a gigabit connection on both my host pc and nvidia shield which is direct playing the content so I don't think bandwidth is the problem. This problem started a month ago when I switched to windows from linux. I have the same rclone config and am pretty sure the mount is the problem.
C:\Users\yeemabread\Desktop\rclone\rclone.exe mount "gcrypt:" X: --allow-other --dir-cache-time 96h --vfs-cache-max-age 48h --vfs-read-chunk-size 24M --poll-interval 5m --vfs-cache-poll-interval 5m --fast-list --vfs-read-chunk-size-limit 1G --buffer-size 2G
Windows 10 64 bit
Google Drive
Are there any changes I should make to the mount to make my streams smooth?

  • update to latest stable version of rclone.
  • make sure winfsp is updated to the latest stable v1.7

i find that the less flags used the better and to be sure what each flags does.

  • --allow-other does nothing on windows
  • --fast-list does nothing on a mount

i suggest that you start with this and test
rclone mount gcrypt: x:
