Automation For ACD and plex

25$ still not bed… as use for setting up big a$$ library of media 100TB haha

so does guru install support come with it if something happen later on?

I would like to publicly thank @dtech_banned here for installing Quickbox on my hetzner box. He was unfailingly patient with an old duffer like me. Would recommend him to anyone. Thank you very much !!



  • are you using encfs or crypt?
  • Have you solved how to make filebot delete inferior versions when a better one has been downloaded? (using: --conflict auto Override existing media only if new media is better0
  • BTW: why don’t you use inotify instead of timed rclone uploads?

using rclone
with crypt
so that i dont have to explain again XD

I tried to use the guide you posted but for some reason i cannot get Plex to see my files. Im using acd_cli and encfs. All the files i put in unencrypted show up in encrypted with the random file name okay. Under Plex i selected ‘cloud drive’ but the other folders i put in there like movies’ dont show up on the Plex ie, just the ‘cloud drive’. I cant view sub categories.

Where exactly should i be putting the files when i upload them to Amazon?

Is there an easy guide for setting this up on Hetzner? Is it easier with rclone instead? Thanks!

rclone is not used to set up servers it is used to upload to acd i dont know anything about acd_cli other than it is unreliable.
and yes use the search on here
looks like this

search the wiki
located at the top of the screen

also like to note never really posted a guide and never ever have i used acd and or made or shared guides for it.

In your post it shows a setup guide? I guess it’s an advert of some kind for a guide then idk? This shows up …

Building an infinite Plex Media Server using Amazon Cloud Drive — For average…

Recently I followed AMC’s Tutorial on how to build a PMS using ACD, the write up outlined the general gist of how to do it and what you… ’

I didnt mean using rclone to setup my server i did that months ago. Im talking about getting acd linked with Plex via some method. Which method would you suggest if acd_cli is unreliable? Thanks

using rclone rclone is like acd_cli but better

Have you tried adding the mount to a directory that is owned by the user:group plex?
(example) /home/plex

You need to set the umask in the mount. I’ll pull up mine in the morning.

What’s the benefit of using Filebot for renaming when both CP and SR support renaming? And rutorrent can hardlink to another folder with autotools.

so the point at least with doing my way is that there is no settings to mess with nothing to learn other than how to add torrents
everything else is handled.

In my case, the files are renamed before being uploaded to acd. I guess they could be downloaded to specific folders that CP and SR look at and then the files are copied to a directory structure before being uploaded. I never had CP and SR rename after its uploaded to ACD…everything is renamed before being uploaded. as @dtech_banned said, it’s just a one shop stop…filebot handles movies and tv shows and unrars, pulls extras, can trigger plex refreshes if I wanted it to. Filebot has a plex naming format in it. It’s a pretty smart program.

oh yeah i guess i could have mentioned filebot can so so much XD as in email you when it is done with things notify plex to update when needed… lots of things it can do. but yeah… lol

With my current setup I use auto-tools to hardlink the files to a ‘complete’ folder’ and rutorrent to unrar. I then point CP and SR to the complete folder for renaming and copy the renamed files to the union-fuse folder for upload to acd. Both CP and SR will send a notification to Plex to trigger a library update.

I haven’t had any issues with this setup. I thought maybe filebot would add functionality that I didn’t have but it doesn’t really looks like it. To each his own I guess.

Think I accidentally posted this to the wrong thread earlier, trying to get it in the right place.

@dtech_banned I have a rather large library on ACD already that is unencrypted and don’t really feel compelled to encrypt it, is there a version of the script for us non crypt users?

You are seeding data you have saved in the cloud? That is the way, your phrasing makes that sentence sound.

seems like reebok is hardlinking/symlinking to files in cloud storage.
“When I use hardlinks there (at least in Couchpotato) I notice that every reboot causes the hardlinks to be ‘rechecked’. Caused a lot of extra bandwidth on my system; since it will just read every movie from ACD.”

From what I’m reading I’m not sure if I am out of the loop or if you two are talking past each-other (misunderstanding one another)

think you are just out of the loop, misunderstanding.

the setup i use is only hardlinks tell they are on the cloud then hardlinks are no more. plex reads from the rclonemount and loads up right away after reboot.

and no seeding from the cloud is not possible.
