Yeah, I don't know why this matters so much to you, I guess I'll never understand. It's a moot point, it matches once, and, all is well. Almost nothing lost. I've never had any hassle or problem with it. I suppose direct integration will be good, just depends what it actually supports. I would get benefit if it allowed management of Emby like timers, etc. Doubtful it will. Or live tv. In that way, it could completely replace the Emby client but I don't see that happening.
Using FTP, SMB, NFS... images are cached on Apple TV. Using a Plex share (with last version), they don't:
- Updates are faster
- Cache data is smaller, using Plex 22 Mb and using FTP 3 Gb.
And that cache is purgeable, if Apple TV runs out of space, cache is purged and you have to match again all files and download metadata.
