Turn off metadata fetching for certain folders

Is there a way to turn off metadata fetching for certain folders? I have many home videos and other shows that are not in the database that infuse is using and they are either mismatched or they don’t use the imbedded info.

Unfortunately not. I think this feature is planned for future updates.

And why have mixed home video in addition to movies and TV shows? Set up a separate folder for movies. Do not let Infuse scan the entire HDD.

They are organized by folder however infuse only has a setting to scan all or none of the HDD contents so separating into folders doesn’t matter anyway.

It is not true. My structure:
NAS / 1/2/3/4 / Movies
NAS / 1/2/3/4 / TV Shows
NAS / 1/2/3 / Home Video
NAS / 1/2/3/4/5/6/7 / Home Video
You can add to the Favorites folder is always last. Of course each one separately
In each such component will put a “folder.jpg”

+1 for being able to turn off metadata fetching for certain folders.

This will be added in a future update - possibly 4.1.

Thanks James, thats great news. Keep up the good work!

Any news for this?
I have an infuse 5 pro (ios / atv4) and dont see any possibility to disable metatada fetching for specific folders (family video).

Try adding that specific folder as a favorite then set it to use local metadata.

Sorry, but I dont see such options for upnp favorite folders…

What happens when you long press on the favorite folder?

Just menu with: Rename, Select Artwork, Hide Favourite, Remove Favourite and Cancel.

Then you may want to try connecting via SMB instead of UPnP. I don’t remember if v6 added the ability to use local or if it’s due to the share being UPnP.
