Saving security camera video to gdrive

I have a home security camera which saves mkv videos when triggered. I want to specify the "gdrive" folder as the save location. the folder seems inaccessible to my Camera application. However, I can copy/paste into gdrive normally.. and I can access all files in gdrive...

directory ownership is root:root. permissions 0000
cant set access permission for any other user. I would like to set 0777.

rclone v1.58.0

  • os/version: linuxmint 20.3 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 5.4.0-107-generic (x86_64)
  • os/type: linux
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.17.8
  • go/linking: static
  • go/tags: none

Google drive

[Google drive]
type = drive
client_id =
client_secret =
scope = drive
auth_owner_only = true
token = *****
root_folder_id = gdrive
team_drive =

What am I doing wrong?

You probably need --allow-other on the mount.

ooops... changed ownership to me and set permissions to 0775. However, should have set to 0777. All good now.

Thanks for your guidance.
(great product btw!)
