Plex does not seem to update everything. Playlists, Posters etc

I recently started using a Plex server with infuse and for many reason like it a lot.

I do have some Issues though:

  1. When making changes to posters and other metadata I cant seem to get infuse to update no matter what I do.
  2. Playlists made in plex does not show up in Infuse. Playlist made in infuse DOES show up in plex. Changes made to playlists in plex does NOT show up in infuse …changes made in playlists in infuse DOES show up in plex.

I tried scanning library many times no changes.

Any idea what I’m doing wrong?

Thank you all in advance :slight_smile:


This topic seems to be corresponding to the issue I have regarding PLEX playlists; hope it is okay, to continue here instead of opening a new thread.

I created a couple of smart playlists in PLEX; basically each playlists only carries a value for “year” + “unwatched” which in result leads to playlists for unwatched movies in 2018, 2019, 2020, etc. → each year got it’s own playlist. There’s nothing really special about it.

Now, what I continue to monitor is that all these PLEX playlists are available in Infuse BUT they never get updated automatically. I always have to update them manually which is really annoying.

My expectation is that all these playlists should be automatically updated in Infuse once there is a sync between Infuse/PLEX regarding new content. That happens every time I start up Infuse.

@james: Can you please have a look at this and/or tell us, whether or not it is a correct expectation to have that PLEX playlists get automatically updated in Infuse?

Thanks a lot in advance!
