In reading over the iCloud & Trakt Syncing document (iCloud & Trakt Syncing – Firecore), I understand that Trakt is no longer necessary for “Watched history” and “Playback position for in-progress items,” which were truly the only things I wanted, which is now native to Infuse v6.
Under the Trakt section, though, it mentions “Ratings and comments.” I suspect ratings are my own ratings, but what are comments?
Also, what changes occur under the hood when I log out of my Trakt account on all devices? I guess what I’m asking is whether this would offer a slight boost in performance or decrease in storage when updating information, as Trakt no longer needs to be updated. I ultimately want Infuse to run as lean as possible. Even just knowing there is one less company extracting data from me is a plus. Besides the family sharing stuff, what other benefit to Trakt would I be missing out on when I log out of it?
Somewhat related to this conversation, the document doesn’t seem to make mention that the entire metadata of libraries, excluding images, can now be synced into iCloud; it still just mentions “Manual metadata corrections (corrections for mismatched titles).”
