Severe banding playing anime files in Infuse Pro ATV 4k. Attaching a few screens comparing how Infuse displays the video stream vs the native tv media player. Will attach the the media info in a subsequent reply or a post exit.
You missed the part where I explain I am comparing the same file with the internal native media player of the tv. If the problem was with the file it would also manifest there. VLC on tv os also handles the file better than Infuse.
You may also try adjusting the Apple TV’s Chroma setting to see if this makes a difference. I know at least a few users were seeing strangeness when anything other than 4:2:0 was used, but IIRC this was only affecting certain TV models.
If the issue persists, we’d love to take a look at one of the problematic files if you are able to send in a sample. Files up to 50GB can be uploaded here.
Tried that as well, tried setting it to rgb high, then low etc
Since for example VLC does a better job at rendering the file I tend to think Infuse has more to do with it. I will try to play it through Emby as well.
I’ve uploaded the file. The screens were taken starting from 20:50
You can see that for example the x265 is much smaller and much better quality on pc, yet on Infuse on apple TV the x264 version looks actually better. So right now I think this is at least an issue with either the way Infuse or Apple TV decodes the media.
For the way Infuse decodes this frame for the x265 stream please look at the first post.
Most of the HEVC media I sampled from my library is 10-bit, either SDR or HDR. They are either BT 709, 2020 or unspecified.
I have also done one more test: I used Infuse on my phone to access the same files (the 265 and 264 encodes) and they exhibit the same behavior: the 264 looks better. So I think that should lend more weight to the idea that the apple TV or the apple TV settings are not something that come into the equation -unless there is large portion of hardware / code they both use and Infuse leverages.
This sounds good. I’ll try to evaluate it once the new version comes out -I still have a couple more days return window for the ATV. I had to cancel my trial for Infuse in the meantime but I hope I will still be able to evaluate without it.
Thanks & looking forward to it!
