Embedding Metadata for large libraries

I have a large cloud connected library with over 40k videos. Naturally indexing takes a while. Would indexing be faster if the metadata was embedded? Would that be less or more demanding on the cloud storage provider?

Nope, it takes longer for Infuse to scan each individual file when you have embedded metadata turned on. That would also increase the traffic to the cloud server.

@NC_Bullseye thank you. Do you have any tips that would speed up indexing & staying up-to-date on new content with a 40k library?

hello, I have the same problem with dropbox indexing is long, infuse work on a way to speed up the process?

If you have the same problem turning off the embedded metadata will help speed things up.

I seem to get faster updates a couple of days after the first full sync of a device. It may take 3 or 4 syncs to get everything set up. See what it does in a week or so.

what is the difference between integrated and no-integrated?

Ok, I understood, but isn’t there a way to significantly reduce dropbox indexing?

So far my experience has been that if I let Jellyfin do the indexing on my seedbox, it is much faster for all my devices to grab all the changes. I assume that with 50k+ items in the library it is too much to directly index on the AppleTV, 3 iPads, 2 iPhones, 2 Mac :slight_smile:

hello, why is there never a response from technical support when we ask if there is a way to speed up indexing from an icloud, we are more and more using this process, but there is no never a solution, is it uninteresting for infuse?
