Hi, in the last few days, I’ve toned down my usage of Infuse. Update 6.0.6 hasn’t solved any of my issues and it’s starting to get really frustrating.
Here’s a list of my current issues:
Can’t connect to Trakt. I get an error message every time.
Metadata takes longer to load on screen. Before the 6.0 update, when I scrolled through the list of movies and TV shows, the cover art would be there as I scrolled. Now, I have to scroll very slowly and wait for the cover art to pop in.
I haven’t had a season stop streaming since the 6.0.6 update, but I’ve also watched very little TV using Infuse. Though, shows have started streaming between seasons again, even though it’s not supposed to do that, so that’s a nice bug.
Buffering. I’ve had more buffering in the past couple weeks than I have in the few years I’ve been using Infuse.
Frequent crashes. Between 1 and 3 a day. That’s something that used to happen very rarely.
The problem with the wrong audio track, such as the commentary track, playing by default still persists. I’ve changed my settings as recommended and now have to deal with non-English languages being played by default. It’s basically pick your poison with that issue, since there’s been no real resolution to it. I can understand that though, since we are dealing with a ton of different file types and such.
(Infuse just crashed again while sitting in the menus. 2nd time today. I’ve only had it on for less than an hour.)
I’ve been having a few other issues, but I can’t even remember them currently.
I started a free trial of Plex and I’m really enjoying it. It has a lot of features that Infuse has been telling us they’ll add, but haven’t done so. You get tired of waiting for these features after being told they’re right around the corner for the past couple years. Plex is more expensive, but if it keeps working as well as it has been for me, I’ll bite the bullet and buy the lifetime pass.
I appreciate the Infuse team and what they do. They have the best player on the AppleTV and their customer service does what they can. That’s more than you can say for everyone else.
