So I would like to use the optimize option in Plex to avoid transcoding as much as possible. Is it possible to let Plex optimize it’s files and store it in the same folder as the original movie? This would require writing directly to the mount (which it cannot do because I mounted it read only) or storing it in the local unionfs directory until it has been uploaded.
I can’t seem to get it working since Plex, does anyone have a suggestion?

Manually trying to write to the directory does not work either, only with sudo rights. Anyone know how I can let Plex write to this directory without running it as root?
