I have a large movie collection with a big number of files in some folders. Lately, Infuse has become annoying when using the SMB protocol. It is slow regardless of whether it’s set to “Auto” or “SMB2”. This applies to both metadata fetching and starting a movie (long term spinning wheel).
Therefore, I have now started using NFS. NSF performs very well when it comes to speed, but another problem has unfortunately occurred. Sometimes, when I have not used Infuse for a while and want to watch a movie, the following happens: The folder opens and the metadata pops up as they should. But then, when I press play, first the spinning wheel appears for a second and then the whole screen goes black. I’m trying to wait, but nothing happens. I go back to the folder manu, try another movie and the same happens again.
So far, restarting Apple TV has solved the problem, but this is obviously cumbersome in the long run.
I have an Apple TV 4K, latest version of Infuse, and streaming from a QNAP NAS.
I don’t think Marvin Gaye has an answer, but perhaps some of you do: What’s going on?
