I have directory on my NAS with movies, that I share using samba in read-only mode. Sometimes I want to watch movie with subtitles, so I want to download subtitles using bashnapi on client, but since it's read-only I have to download movie to my home directory and then use bashnapi. Is there any way to mount read-ony cifs as read-write cifs, but with changes only visibles on client machine?

samba would need to be configured such that the share is RW but then the client fstab mount option to be RO. then a mount -o remount,rw .... to remount as RW should then work

Why not just download the subtitles to your home directory and leave the movie on the server? If bashnapi does not support separate directories for input versus output (it should, but maybe it doesn't), you could use a symlink in your home directory to point to the file on the server.

I share folders with few computer in my place and some players was making mess like downloading album cover, so I make all this shares read only.

I just set up overlayfs and add in local.d command to clean every files I created and looks like it's working.

I don't thought about it, but it's extra work every time when you want to watch movie.
