Question before buying

Posted June 11th, 2020    90   0  

I understand you support google drive but does you system download from google drive and keep the file or is it cached if I use it as a source for plex?

Hello!
We use rclone to mount your Google Drive to the file system so Plex can access it.
However bear in mind, rclone does not cache the contents of your downloads, it just caches the directory tree to avoid making API calls to get the contents of the directory and the files metadata.
Therefore, when you stream a video from your Google drive, that video is being downloaded in realtime, it isn't cached or kept anywhere
