Set download location on macOS

Hey:) Love the app on mac os. I would love to have the option to chose the download location. Since my internal ssd is small, it is not convenient for large movies. I did try using Symbolic Links but did not have success. With Symlink I keep getting errors. If this feature could be added, I am sure it could please many!


Let’s say I download a file for offline viewing from a link that I add, where does Infuse store this folder? I would like to change this folder location to an external HDD if possible

The answer to the question to where:

Don’t know if you can change, if you can alias to the external drive using terminal, maybe? Haven’t tried

I might try using a symlink perhaps

Is there a way to change the directory where Infuse downloads the files?
I have already tried a sym link. Unfortunately, Infuse does not download. It would be nice if at least an error message was displayed.

Thank you for your reply.
Any idea why sym links are not working? That would be very helpful as a workaround.
