Just wondering, if I have an MP4 that has already been fully tagged (poster & tvdb info) using Subler. Am I wasting space by NOT setting that file or folder to local embedded metadata? Or is Infuse smart enough to know that it doesn’t have to store my embedded meta & fetched metadata? Obviously, this example would be while I have both Fetching and Embedded Metadata ON.
I just want to make sure Infuse isn’t storing duplicates, because I have A LOT of mp4’s that are embedded fully with tvdb tags, but I decide to NOT to set them to local metadata, and just let Infuse figure it out for itself.
It won’t really matter whether you’re using embedded, external, or online metadata. Infuse will read that metadata/artwork and cache it locally on your device in an optimized format to allow for fast loading.
My metadata storage was previously a little over 3GB (with Infuse v5.5). Now with the v5.6 update, my storage has dropped to about 2.3GB — which still seems excessive, but I’ll admit its better than before…
I have included two screenshots — one of my Infuse Library Index & another of my iPad’s Storage space. It can be compared to the previous attachments I shared in post #1
I would like to love an option to setup the maximum metadata storage size, or something like that.
I bought the app for a few hours ago, to connect my plex server, and watch series with direct play on my Iphone → it works, thanks!
But the metadate of my library eats up all my free space on the device (1000 movies, 15k episode)
And I have a 16GB only phone…
I would love to see only metadata for “on my deck” series & movies, nothing more.
