Hi - awesome player. I stream files off Plex/Emby using Infuse on MacOS, and I’ve noticed that Infuse continues to download the entire file even when I am not actively watching the videos. So, if I put a video on pause, I see that the dark grey bar next to the play button continues to grow. Activity Monitor also shows that the file is continuously being downloaded at my maximum network speed. Of course, I can just stop the video instead of putting it on pause but as many other players do these days, I think Infuse should implement a feature where it would buffer only the amount that’s necessary for smooth playback instead of downloading the whole file.
This is problematic when I put a video on pause with intention to watch it soon only to be distracted by some other stuff and then close the video to watch it later. And later, when I start watching the video again, it downloads the whole file again in memory or somewhere and then it gets deleted if I don’t finish the video and watch the rest later. And at that point. Infuse downloads the file again from the beginning. This is very wasteful.
