Just checking if this is a little bug or a feature suggestion, and if it happens to anyone else. I’ve got infuse which I usually use connected to my Plex server. if I select something to download, I feel like it should keep the metadata (series name, picture etc) from the Plex server rather than re-scrape the metadata itself. I normally wouldn’t notice but I have an archive of F1 races on my Plex server. Plex is properly configured to name them as the races they are, but if I download an episode to infuse, it re-scrapes the data, and incorrectly too.
For example, on my Plex server I might have a file:
/Media/Sport/Formula 1/Season 1997/Formula 1 - s1997e14 - Austrian Grand Prix.avi
Which on Plex shows as a formula 1 race in the 1997 season as “Austrian Grand Prix” and sorted in 14th place. that’s exactly what I want.
However when I downloaded this race to infuse on my iPad to watch on the train, it showed it as:
“Formula 1: Drive to Survive - S1997 • E14 - Formula 1: Drive to Survive”
As the great Roy Walker would say, it’s good but it’s not right… I mean, it’s good enough to know what it is, and I still watched it but that feels like a bug.
I assume that having downloaded a bare file, it’s then re-scraped the metadata and got it wrong, but the right metadata has been presented to it on a plate, I would think it would use that… esp as that’s where I’ll edit the metadata to make sure it’s right…
Has this affected anyone else?
PS. I only recently discovered that infuse can download files from Plex, and it works quickly and reliably, thanks very much. I feel like that’s a feature Infuse should advertise, as it’s not mentioned on the features page as far as I can see.
