Apple TV - URL (x-callback-url) Schemes


Does anyone know if URL schemes work on ATV? I absolutely love the media player built into this app, but the library management is clunky and hard to work with as it seems impossibly slow to sync a library into the app.

Therefore I am thinking of writing my own library management tool that can then interface with the Infuse 7 app via the URL schemes to play a URL link.

It would be good to know if the ATV app accepts the same URL scheme the iOS app does, but the documentation on this ( has iOS in brackets on the title.

If the URL schemes are not available on ATV, is there a reason for this? I cannot think of a coding reason this would not be possible, or different to iOS for that matter.




Hi! Any news about URL Schemes on ATV? Tried yesterday and it does not work.

Welcome to the forum!

This is a suggestion for addition to Infuse since it’s not currently supported.

Don’t forget that you need to click the like button on the first post in this thread to show your support for this suggestion! :wink:

Hi all,

I have been trying to stream some video URLs I have on an app I am currently developing by using Infuse and the ‘x-callback-url’ protocol, however, it looks like tvOS does not support this scheme at all. Could you please confirm this, and if this is case, could you please make it work?

Thanks a lot!
