Limit inbound bandwidth for each users request

I am mounting a Google Drive and streaming the video content through nginx limiting the bandwidth by adding

limit_rate 1024k;

However the videos are being downloaded from Google drive at about 20mb/s. What do I need to change on my following config to get that ratio a bit closer? This is with only one person watching the video so I don't want to limit myself to say 5Mb/s from Google drive and once I have 10+ people streaming the videos will be essential the 5mb/s split between 10 users. I don't want limits I put on rclone to be a global limit rather a limit per video request.

Description=Google Drive (rclone)

ExecStart=/usr/bin/rclone mount google: /home/vids --allow-non-empty
--buffer-size 1G
--dir-cache-time 6h
--drive-chunk-size 256M
--log-level INFO
--log-file /var/log/rclone.log
--timeout 1h
--umask 002
--vfs-read-chunk-size 128M
--vfs-read-chunk-size-limit off
ExecStop=/bin/fusermount -uz /home/vids


You can't per file yet.

You should follow this issue:

Ok thanks will do.

As for my current config do you suggest any changes?

If you try the beta in the issue with --bw-limit-file 1M that will limit each stream to 1MByte/s or 8Mbit/s
