Rclone cache question for plex

Hello I attach info for here, thanks.

  • you did not post your mount commands.

Excuse me I edited the post and insert this:

rclone mount team1prueba:/ /home/team1 --allow-other


rclone mount team1pruebacache:/ /home/team1prueba --allow-other

Plex takes the content from team1prueba.

Thanks and excuse me

i have never used the cache backend, as it is buggy, not maintained and soon to be depreciated.

with the mount, you can try this

Hello, on first post you tell me whay I want its possible, I dont want to cache all files, only file I am playing.

It is possible?


that flag, will not cache all the files, just the file you play.

HEllo, and can you help me with the sitanxis for mount???


rclone mount team1prueba:/ /home/team1 --allow-other --vfs-cache-mode=full
i am not sure how that flags interacts with the cache backend

I test it but play dosnt strart until the file is downloaded!

I have used:
rclone mount team1pruebacache:/ /home/ubuntu/pruebacache/ --allow-other --vfs-cache-mode full

I have used this:

rclone mount team1prueba:/ /home/team1 --allow-other


rclone mount team1pruebacache:/ /home/team1prueba --allow-other --vfs-cache-mode full

Plex take data from team1pruebacache but film dosnt start until the fim is downloaded :frowning:

Some idea?

Lot of thanks

Currently there is no way to do what you are looking for. There are two possible ways:

  1. Use cache session, this will keep a local copy as you read it. So going back will work, but going forward will need to wait for rclone to serve the content.

  2. use VFS full mode, which will not serve the file until a complete copy is stored locally.

I guess you have unstable internet and watch content locally, so you want to download the file and be able to watch regardless of any hiccups that happen with your connection. If so, why don't you play with a big buffer? This will store the content in RAM, and will read ahead and store the amount you set. Therefore you can fast forward for a bit and get the content directly.

there might be another way to do what you want, but i do not know what that way is.

This should be possible with the latest beta which has a revamped full-mode, which doesn't wait for the full file to be downloaded before starting to play.

Setting vfs-read-ahead significantly large will keep that amount of file on disk so you can continue playing for some time even if the internet goes out. Setting it to the size of the movie will buffer the whole file on disk.
