I have been using rclone for a while now for plex with an encrypted gdrive storage, as someone who doesnt understand too much I have used a tutorial in setting it up.
Specifically this one https://bytesized-hosting.com/pages/rclone-gdrive
The way I use it, is cd to my movie/tv folder and rclone copy into it e.g. /gdrive/TV/Loki/Season 01/ which works well for me
Trying to figure out if im using rclone correctly. sometimes ram reaches its limit (have 8gb) while playing a video and the rclone mount unmounts
rclone v1.56.0 - os/version: ubuntu 16.04 (64 bit) - os/kernel: 4.4.0-210-generic (x86_64) - os/type: linux - os/arch: amd64 - go/version: go1.16.5 - go/linking: static - go/tags: none
Are you on the latest version of rclone?
[gdrive] type = drive client_id = REDACTED client_secret = REDACTED scope = drive token = REDACTED [gcache] type = cache remote = gdrive:/gdrive plex_url = http://127.0.0.1:32400 plex_username = REDACTED plex_password = REDACTED chunk_size = 5M info_age = 1d chunk_total_size = 10G [gcrypt] type = crypt remote = gcache:/myfiles filename_encryption = standard directory_name_encryption = true password = REDACTED password2 = REDACTED
Also I use a service to run the mount command on startup
