Couldn't find this question in the forum, so not sure if it's been addressed, but it would be great to have the option to download files at a smaller bitrate, similar to how the Plex iOS app does. A lot of my movies are full remuxes and my iPad only has 16GB of storage. Any plans for this in a future release?

Maybe it will come as part of the "Versatile transcoding option for Plex" mentioned on https://firecore.com/forum/topic/13575

I can't image this would happen because of a) the time it would take to transcode, and b) the drain on the device.
Unless I'm mistaken its the plex server that does all the transcoding, not the app.

Hopefully we will get the (multi version) option that you get on Plex, so that you can store two versions on your server and choose which one to download/play.

Thanks

I was assuming that since theTallest mentioned the Plex iOS app he would be connecting to a Plex server, so I was expecting the Plex server to transcode the file before it is copied to Infuse once this option is implemented.

Sorry, should have worded my post differently: hopefully Infuse will be able to ask PMS to transcode media prior to downloading in a future release.

Integration with Plex's transcoding features is planned for a future update. Probably after the release of Infuse 6 in early 2019. Smile

Infuse 6 for iOS and Apple TV is now available!

is this going to be available anytime soon? For me would this be the only reason to use plex with infuse, if i play a 4k movie on my apple tv 4k with infuse it plays perfect without any problems, but when i want to stream it on my iphone it buffers every 1-2 minutes
