Alright, I know this was fixed. My problem is/was that my metadata was taking long to load so today I activated the pre-cache, embedded metadata & changed the streaming cache to legacy… I deleted all metadata from all my devices and & scanned again. I got the ban api. Which option do I have to keep & which I have to turn off to keep my metadata saved without having to wait for the Apple TV to download it from TVDB and avoid more api bans?
Though I can’t answer definitively (and I’m assuming you are using Infuse natively rather than via Plex/Emby/Jellyfin?) but I would imagine that having the files scanned for embedded metadata is a really bad idea and would lead to more aggressive scanning of each and every file.
Again it’s just a hunch and I might be completely off track.
Also as a side note you mention tvdb?
Running infuse natively no longer uses tvdb at all. Everything is tmdb.
@Hitsville is right on the money, unless you know for a fact that you’ve embedded metadata into the actual video files it’s best to leave embedded metadata turned off. When embedded metadata is turned on it has to scan each file and not only causes more hits on the server but is also much slower.
@Hitsville I know. That’s why I asked in suggestion to add more cloud services that I found that are unlimited. I’ve not received the email yet but when I go to my storage mine says in red “24.64 TB of shared 5 TB (492%) used” but no days countdown or email yet.
And from what I’ve read lately the other cloud services that offer “unlimited” storage are not far behind. With the exponential growth of video files with resolution increases and audio files with movies also increasing in size and quality “unlimited” isn’t a business model that will last.
After spending an extended time looking myself for the ultimate unlimited service I decided the only one that gives the security level I want and the assurances of availability is to have a local NAS. When things eventually expand to it’s limits, another one can sit next to it.
Just keep a coffee can sitting on top of the first one to put the funds you save from monthly fees to pay for the next addition.
Yeah, I have a Synology Nas with 32TB but I share my library with friends so that’s why I upload it to GD. Even when I have 1GB up & down I don’t think it’s possible to share from SynologyNas to those friends. Am I right? Have you tried?
I think you can share and with that speed as long as it’s not dozens of connections it should be fine. Have I tried? Nope, I only have a DSL connection with a ridiculously low upstream that is not up to the task
There’s some advantage of using plex for example? I have an old plex life time pass or whatever is the name. I used it but for what I remember plex convert the files. So, I can use plex server in my NAS but in my iOS devices use infuse out of my home or the only alternative is cloud services?
