We’ve all been there before.
The meta data gets messed up or is after an update (whether Infuse or Apple update).
The movies can’t be kept apart correctly (like Total Recall 1990 and Total Recall 2012 to name just one example).
I am sure that these aren’t individual cases.
Wouldn’t it be much easier for the users if Infuse would fill mp4 and mkv files with the metadata?
That would solve the problem afaik.
Even for each individual film by confirmation or you give the general confirmation.
If you then manually correct some movies, the new entry is stored again in the archive.
Infuse doesn’t have to touch the video or audio file for that.
They’re archives 99% of the time and information can be stored there.
Same goes for subtitles, covers and metadata.
That would be great!
ATM I use MKV Tag Editor from 3delite.hu to add the meta data to the file.
Unfortunately I have to start a Windows VM for this.
I haven’t found anything better than MKV Tag Editor (for MKV’s).
For MP4 files I use MetaMovie from the Mac App Store.
If I’m honest, it’s a bit of a pain and I wonder why this task can’t be handled directly by Infuse.

While not related directly to this issue (since users can already manage content this way outside the app; and local content only speeds library rebuilds while not effecting occurrences of library deletions), you might want to include this suggestion as a new feature in the suggestion forum.
I know that editing headers of a file is really quick, but attaching additional files may require remuxing the entire file. Just reading the headers of all the files is the slowest part of infuse (if you have decent internet). Having it read embedded metadata will make it even slower. And then what happens if multiple infuse clients are trying to write at the same time.
As long as you don’t touch the movie or audio material, you don’t need to remux.
So there’s room for improvement? Good.
I can’t confirm this. Both run quickly for me.
Will not happen. I’m the only one with write permissions. That is, if I tag everything correctly, then it is correct for the other users. why should inexperienced users have write permissions? I can already see my relatives deleting half the archive by mistake.
