I am on Mac 10.11.6 with Fuse for mac os installed. When I fast forward or rewind… it takes quite a while to catch up… sometimes up to a minute before it starts playing again. I am using v1.33-72-ga4a44a4. Media is encrypted and on ACD.
Seeking in the file is slow when using rclone. That is the way the cloud storage systems work and can't be fixed To put it perspective, it might take as much as 500ms to seek in a file whereas a file on your computer will seek in 5ms on hard disk and <1ms on SSD.
Seeking unfortunately is even slower for crypt - there is a performance optimisation I haven't done yet:
Video players seek when you fast forward or re-wind. They often seek multiple times trying to find an I-frame (I assume). You can see this if you run
rclone mount with the
-v flag hence the slowness.
However I've found it does depend on the video player. Some video players spend a bit of time at the start seeking and build up a sort of index which makes fast forward / rewind much quicker - so it might be worth experimenting with different video players.
I guess there might be some options for Plex too which could help - if there is a stream option that would help.
