When two people attempt to watch the same movie or TV show on plex they will not stream and just buffer ever couple seconds. If someone is far along in the video, the file will stop downloading and begin to buffer when some else starts to watch it.
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)
Thanks for your quick response. [quote="Animosity022, post:2, topic:13473"]
Why is that 1 minute?
I’m not sure. I’ve always had this set and I may have carried this command over from when I was using a Cache backend.
I have been using this and always found it to work well for speed of playback. Probably picked it up from someone else’s settings.
I have a decent amount of ram so I always did this to have a good buffer
I will recreate this and post the logs. It’s easy to recreate because I am just unable to play the same Video file at the same time as someone else.
I have had this set up for a while and it’s always been an issue even on two different builds. Wasn’t sure if it was a limitation of rclone or something else is going on.
It would be bad with the cache backned too. You want that number something large like 100+ hours as it's wasted API calls.
I'd remove both of those and starts with the defaults.
Making it 32M increases API calls too and the buffer might be hindering as well as you have 2 files open both asking for 2G of the file so you might be throttling something along the way. Hard to tell to you share the logs.
So I restarted the server this morning and tried the settings you recommended. I tested watching a movie my kids were watching (different usernames) and it would not start and caused their video to buffer shortly after. The log file is huge and I am not sure how you want me to post it. Funny thing is now I'm trying to do it again so I can mark the exact time and is now working fine.
I use encfs to decrypt. So google is mounted with rclone to local folder, then that folder is decrypted to a read only folder. I use mergerfs for reads and writes to media folder. I believe I got that part from one of your posts.
I rebooted and added a --nocache option to encfs to see if that helps. Funny thing is after a reboot there are no issues. I can play multiple of the same file. After its up for a bit is where I start having the issue.
