Rclone+MEGA+crypt+PLEX Suggestions

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I have uploaded my media backup to MEGA and I am having problems scanning TV shows and Movies. It is really really slow and sometimes my server stops working while it scans the files.

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

rclone v1.52.0

  • os/arch: linux/amd64
  • go version: go1.14.3

Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

Debian 9 64bits

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 mega: ~/mega

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

Paste config here

I doubt mega would reliably work to stream plex.

You'd want to update to the latest and perhaps check out vfs-cache-mode full

Thank you, I will give it a try. Do you think that following settings will do:

  --config /home18/catorrez/.config/rclone/rclone.conf \
  --rc \
  --use-mmap \
  --dir-cache-time 168h \
  --timeout 1h \
  --vfs-cache-mode full \
  --vfs-read-chunk-size 64M \
  --vfs-read-chunk-size-limit 2048M \
  --tpslimit 10

I'd add in:

--vfs-cache-max-age 6h (This is the time something stays cached on disk)
--vfs-cache-max-size 100G (This is the size of the disk space the cache will consume)

I'd remove

rclone mount mega: /home/plexcloud --rc --use-mmap --dir-cache-time 168h --timeout 1h --vfs-cache-mode full --vfs-cache-max-age 6h --vfs-cache-max-size 100G &

it does not work,
Could you see any error?



It's best to start a new help and support topic as that collects all the right information to help you out. I don't see anything wrong in your command offhand.

I use the same command, I mount the folders, but plex doesn't recognize them and I don't know why.
