Rclone/Rcrypt and PLEX

Watching a show in PLEX results in a dropped connection to the client and re-buffering within the first 3-10 minutes of every show. Looking at the logs shows no errors in PLEX and I'm asking for support in how to check if Rclone is operating correctly, or if I need to change any parameters. Files are remote via Rclone and Rcrypt.

Rclone v 1.48.0
Ubuntu 16.04 LTS


  1. you are running a old version of rclone, please update and test again.

  2. when you posted the question, you should be been asked the following questions, can you please answer them, so we can help you.

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

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

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

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

A log from the command with the -vv flag (eg output from rclone -vv copy /tmp remote:tmp)

  1. I'll look to update Rclone to a newer version. As I'm also running Rcrypt, is there a separate update for Rcrypt or is it part of the Rclone update.

Are these still good instructions for upgrading Rclone on Ubuntu?

wget http://downloads.rclone.org/rclone-v1.35-linux-amd64.zip
unzip rclone-v1.35-linux-amd64.zip
cp ./rclone-v1.35-linux-amd64.zip/rclone /usr/bin/

  1. The questions have been answered. I don't know if I'm having a problem with Rclone, hence the question of asking for support in how to check to see if Rclone is behind the problems I'm having.


These may be simple questions but....when I upgrade Rclone, will I lose my config file, as the install instructions do not take into account an upgrade, only a new installation. Thanks

just download the latest version of rclone and copy it to the same folder as the old version of rclone.
has nothing to do with the config file.

Fetch and unpack

curl -O https://downloads.rclone.org/rclone-current-linux-amd64.zip
unzip rclone-current-linux-amd64.zip
cd rclone-*-linux-amd64

Copy binary file

sudo cp rclone /usr/bin/
sudo chown root:root /usr/bin/rclone
sudo chmod 755 /usr/bin/rclone

No, your config file will remain and this holds your entire setup.
Everything should work exactly as before.

since the OP already has rclone install, should the OP do this

curl https://rclone.org/install.sh | sudo bash

or use what i suggested above?

Agreed. I wasn't contradicting you.
I believe the install script for Linux updates as required, doesn't it? I think it does.

I've upgraded to rclone v1.50.2. I'll do some testing with files to see if the problem occurs again. Thanks
