Excessive internet bandwidth usage

Is it normal for MCEBuddy to use a lot of internet bandwidth. It used over 12 GB of data today according to glasswire? What exactly does it go out into the internet for?

It only uses the internet to match the metadata from the files being processed and check for version updates once a day. You can disable metadata lookup/download cover-posters in the Conversion Task -> Expert settings page.

Either you have a lot of files/metadata to match/very large cover art/posters or glasswire is reporting incorrect data.

Thank you so much for the response. I will try that settings fix. At first I did have a lot of past recordings that needed to be processed. Thanks again for the settings tip !
