I recently upgraded from Infuse Pro v5 to Pro v6. When I opened v6, it asked me if I wanted to import my synced videos (and metadata I believe…?) from v5. I’m in the process of moving into a new place, so for the time being, I have NOT installed v6 on my Apple TV or iPhone (only on my iPad). Also, right now I am connecting Infuse only to my mobile movie HDD (USB —> AirPort Extreme) which only has about 110 movies & 20 tv episodes.
My Infuse settings are telling me that my metadata is currently taking up 132 MB, which according to the other community posts I’ve read is extremely high!
Is there a reason this is happening…? I can only think of 2 possible culprits:
(1) I have metadata fetching & embedded metadata BOTH ON. I’m not sure if this matters though, because I thought Infuse uses one or the other based on a folder-to-folder basis?? Most of my mp4s have metadata embedded via Subler, but it seems like Infuse usually chooses to fetch meta unless I otherwise set a folder to use local metadata.
(2) I assume that the 132 MB figure on my iPad app includes all of the embedded or fetched artwork? If that’s true, does 132 MB seem like a reasonable figure for ~120 movies worth of artwork & metadata? Also, is there a way to view exactly how much iCloud storage space Infuse is taking up?
Should I turn off embedded metadata in general settings and just turn it on when a folder actually needs it, or will this not make much of a difference?
Obviously 132 MB isn’t that big of a deal, but I am concerned about what will happen when I connect my 8TB NAS that is 50% full of movies — especially since v6 now uses iCloud to sync most metadata between devices.
