Plex doesn't find OneDrive folder while the Jelly does

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I'm having a heedless server, with Rclone Plex and Jellyfin.
With the command below, Jellyfin can see the Rclone/OneDrive folder, but Plex cannot.
My belief is that this must be a Plex Issue with the rights or something. Since I am inexperienced can someone, please guide me?

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

rclone v1.50.2

  • os/arch: linux/amd64
  • go version: go1.13.8

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)


The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone mount onedrive: /home/fitsou/onedrive --use-mmap --rc --dir-cache-time 1h --vfs-cache-mode writes --tpslimit 10 --allow-other

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

type = onedrive
token = {"access_token":"",
drive_id =
drive_type = personal

A log from the command with the -vv flag

I dont know the full command I must type..


that version of rclone is many years old, the lastest stable is v1.59.1

please update and test again.

after the update

ok, not a problem, that is expected.

need to edit /etc/fuse.conf and uncomment user_allow_other

so change

hmmm, I'm getting this:

fitsou@plexserver:~$ /etc/fuse.conf
-bash: /etc/fuse.conf: Permission denied

that is not valid, no command

use whatever text editor you want, make the needed change.

for example,
try nano /etc/fuse.conf

ok Thanks! Everything is back to normal and updated.
Unfortunately, I'm still unable to see the OneDrive folder to Plex

not sure why,

i use a subdr of the / filesystem /rclone

rclone tree /rclone --max-depth=2
β”œβ”€β”€ caches
β”‚   └── remote
β”œβ”€β”€ mountpoints
β”‚   └── remote

What else can I do?
how is it possible for one app to see the folders and the other does not?

did try my idea, to mount to the root of the file system,
instead of a subdir of homedir

need to make sure whichever username is running plex; that username has permissions to /home/fitsou/onedrive

Pretty sure your paths are incorrect in the Plex container. If you are mounting the storage with:

rclone mount onedrive: /home/fitsou/onedrive

I don’t think it’s available at the following path mounted in Plex due to case sensitivity in the folder paths:

-v /home/fitsou/OneDrive/plexserver:/onedrive

You should try with the following when running plex:

-v /home/fitsou/onedrive/plexserver:/onedrive

When onedrive volume is not mapped to the onedrive account the Plex Container starts normally.
But when the onedrive host folder is mounted via Rclone then the Plex Container does not start at all.
