When using Infuse in list mode with MKV files, there is no way to display the FILENAME, it will only use the MKV metadata “Title” which is nearly always incorrect, and is UNCHANGEABLE without a transcode.
I have tried all the settings to override this behaviour, for example “show filenames” which does not override MKV metadata “Title”, it seems to always default to MKV metadata “Title” NOT filename.
Can you please confirm this ? And if possible allow Filenames to override MKV metadata “Title”
To clarify, I am not fetching metadata, I’m using local files only.
You say these are local files only. Do they match to something on TMDb or are they from your own personal library, like home videos? I believe that infuse if it can’t match from local files or TMDb it will look at the mkv title tag for matching.
You can use Mkvtoolnix to change the tag without having to reencode the files. It can do a quick header edit.
That makes sense, since even though I have “use metadata” switch offf, if I hold click on an mkv, and click “edit metadata”, then it states “-None - use embedded metadata”.
So even though use metadata is off in settings, it defaults to using metadata if there is no metadata. Which it should not be doing.
@james Filenames ON/OFF does not seem to do anything (iOS and Apple TV)
I’m using DLNA to Windows 10
Infuse seems to see most filenames fine (ie. not metadata)
Browsing via settings shows the same as what I see elsewhere, most filenames are ok, mkv and some mp4 are metadata title.
It does seem to be a problem with MP4 files as well as MKV. It looks like Infuse will always default to metadata title over filename, no matter what the settings are.
