literally zero setup. I just use my existing Plex library. I just signed into my Plex account in the Infuse settings. Plays way better on Apple TV than the Plex app.
Does it use less resources compared to playing it directly from Plex?

Infuse isn't a server, it's just feeds from Plex library / wherever you point it at ie. hard drive etc, & all meta is then downloaded on device. It doesn't go on the mac mini, it is an :apple:TV / iOS app. Just download the app on iOS / :apple:TV, enter your Plex credentials and jobs's a good 'un!:)
If I rename a file to help the meta data.

Does that mean I need to follow the Plex guidelines rather than Infuse?

It plays more video formats natively so less converting and quicker launch times than what the Plex Apple TV app is able to do.

Does "played" count and similar tags, then appear inside the main Plex library?
Yep, played and current play time status syncs just fine.

Infuse pays for separate codecs so more supported with less hassle, Plex is a bit stingier & uses iOS codecs from my understanding.

I rarely have to rename files in Plex, here's the guidance:

TBH, best money to save your time you can spend is Filebot in the Mac App Store, here

I never like to splash the cash on apps, but since buying this I've never looked back, well worth it!;)

If I use the Filebot will I not need to get Plex/Infuse?
