Rclone Plex Uptobox - Media error

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

When I try to open the detail of a media on a Plex application (Smartphone, Shield ...) I have this error message (https://imgur.com/a/KWupdSQ) and I have to press "start again" several times before the detail of the media is displayed

I run my server on Ubuntu Server 20.04.3 LTS and use uptobox remote on rclone.


What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

rclone v1.56.2

  • os/version: ubuntu 20.04 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 5.4.0-89-generic (x86_64)
  • os/type: linux
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.16.8
  • go/linking: static
  • go/tags: none

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)


The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

I mount the remote by many services files in /etc/systemd/system
Here is one of them :

Description=RClone Service

ExecStart=/usr/bin/rclone mount uptobox:PM-Movies-2 /mnt/uptobox/PM-Movies-2 -v --allow-other --allow-non-empty --no-modtime --vfs-cache-mode writes
ExecStop=/bin/fusermount -uz /mnt/uptobox/PM-Movies-2


The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

type = uptobox
access_token = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

You'd want to create a log file and reproduce the error and share the log file.

This allows for over mounting and 99% of the time should not be used.

Why this flag?

--no-modtime Don't read/write the modification time (can speed things up).
Maybe it's the root cause ?

I didn't ask what the flag does as I know. I asked why the OP was using it and wasn't looking to guess the response.
