Share assets between Bridge app to Bridge plugin / Bridge plugin network problem


I’ve been trying to add a Metahuman character to my UE5 project. But it seems assets downloaded from the standalone app cannot get detected in the plugin version, even if I set the download folder manually to the same one. The standalone app does not have an export plugin for UE5 (up to 4.27).

The reason I download them using the Bridge app is the app actually downloads 1000x faster than the plugin (3-4mb/s vs 3-4kb/s), have to wait a whole night if I download them through the plugin. I can confirm that no difference in proxy settings or firewall settings applied to both of them.

Can anyone help with exporting Metahuman from Bridge app to UE5 / raise any idea on the download speed difference?

Thank you very much.
