I am planning to integrate my plex and seafile server by using the drive client on the plex server to map its user shared libraries to a local directory. I tried doing this before with the WebDAV extension but performance was awful, and the Drive client prooved to be a good candidate so far. The idea is that if I want to make media on my seafile account (from any user really) available to the plex server, I would just need to share it with the same account that the drive client on the plex server is linked to.
As I said, so far so good, performance is great and I had no issues setting up a simple virtual folder using this guide following the instructions for “Running SeaDrive without GUI” now that’s where the docs stop unfortunately, I’d like to mount this virtual folder on boot using fstab or something that will run before Plex starts scanningn directories. I could make a simple init file and hope for the best, but I think there are people here with a far vaster knowledge than me on these things, that can probably help me out ;). Thanks for reading.
Plex not to list files with fuse, authorization problem, after I am not an engineer, maybe I’m wrong, I have a second server that j useful for plex and that I synchronize with the client seafile. Server2012 <> Debian8
It sounds like you have the client installed and just need to get it to start on boot. I haven’t tried it, but I don’t see anything in https://www.seafile.com/en/help/drive_client_linux/ about starting the daemon on boot. I don’t think the fstab will work since this isn’t a regular file system handled in the kernel, but instead is handled by a userland program connected to the kernel with fuse.
You probably just need to make a simple init script in /etc/init.d, and link to it from /etc/rc3.d on your plex machine.
