Rclone for emby

I want to discuss a question about using rclone to mount Google cloud disk on emby, thank you, the question is as follows:

Use auto config?

Say Y if not sure
Say N if you are working on a remote or headless machine
y) Yes (default)
n) No
y/n> n Because we are vps operation, we cannot auto config
Please go to the following link: https://xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Log in and authorize rclone for access
Enter verification code> Paste the key you got

There is no following link now, and I don't know where the problem is. If you know, please answer me, thank you very much! ! !

hello and welcome to the forum,

this has been discussee in the forum many times.
for example, https://forum.rclone.org/t/google-drive-oauth-changes/29318

  2. on the vps

y) Yes (default)
n) No
y/n> n
Option config_token.
For this to work, you will need rclone available on a machine that has
a web browser available.
For more help and alternate methods see: https://rclone.org/remote_setup/
Execute the following on the machine with the web browser (same rclone
version recommended):
        rclone authorize "drive"
Then paste the result.
Enter a value.
config_token>
  1. on a desktop with a gui, run rclone authorize "drive",
  2. on vps, copy/paste code from step 2.
  3. be happy
