Are there any advantages or disadvantages to using Plex Media Server for Infuse’s library vs using Infuse’s own library scanning? I honestly don’t know which method to use. I tried using both at the same time for different media sources but it was a disaster. For some reason, even though I unchecked certain Plex folders, they would still show up in the results.
The one advantage of using PMS that I can think of is the speed of the library refresh. Infuse takes a very long time to update folder shares for the library, but with the PMS, this happens very fast.
But other than that, If I’m a Plex Pass subscriber, is there any reason why I shouldn’t use PMS with Infuse? Will PMS sometimes transcode files for Infuse? And can I use both Plex’s playlists and Infuse’s or do I have to pick one?
