I setup gdrive and crypt and it all works so far. But when I start a movie or series, and stop watching after 5 minutes, then wait one minute or even less, and I start the same file again, plex can not continue the series, it starts from the beginning. Sometimes plex tries to start from where I left off, but just keeps on loading.There is no encoding, just direct stream/direct play. But I see loads of traffic in plex and nothing is happening.
Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.
os/version: ubuntu 20.04 (64 bit)
os/kernel: 5.4.0-96-generic (x86_64)
Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)
The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)
But I actually have an Idea what could be the problem for the "not beeing able to continue watching"
I was scanning (initially) my plex library at the same time as watching this video... could it be, that the scan used so much of my cache, that plex was unable to use a locally cached version of that file?
Is it normal that, when doing the initial scan (abiout 14k movies), I use up all download from gdrive?
My settings have not changed from the one posted above..
I tried to watch a small episode, and this is logged:
The download quota for this file has been exceeded., downloadQuotaExceeded
Yea.. I understand that... I was just wondering.. I thought that when I use these settings, I should have the same result as everyone else..
And since you used it as well, I was hoping to get an answer to the question.. Like:
"Yes, when scanning your library for the first time, rclone, with theses settings, will download all files from gdrive."
We just had this discussion here last week, and many more times before that. What seems to have helped that particular user with his initial scan was adding --vfs-read-chunk-size 1M. Worth a shot, and if it works for you, please report back.
EDIT: Make sure you have intro/chapter detection and everything else that's unnecessary disabled in Plex.
I stoped plex, stoped the rclone service, deleted the log, created an empty log file, started rclone with commandline parameters, started plex, and klicked on a episode I was watching 3 hours before. Then it started from the beginning, not at 18:something. Then I stoped the episode, and stoped rclone with ctrl+c.
Thats all in the logfile... And its 41.000 lines......
Yes, off course...
I start a media file, stop it any time (in the last example after 18 minutes) and wan to continue later that day or maybe even the next weekend.. But it does not continue, it starts from the beginning, if it loads at all.
