Firstly I would like to express my gratitude for the app. Infuse is truly a masterpiece, I purchased Pro Lifetime on the 14th May 2018, a month after trying it out. Infuse handles all my 4k files elegantly, it is the best wireless solution to playing 4k MKV on my Apple TV 4k.
But recently I’m having some issues watching 1080p H264 MKV (tv show) on Infuse on my Apple tv 4k. The videos flicker almost every time the camera changes, but there’s no other issues or quality drop on the video before and after the flicker. It is just the flicker during every single cam transition that is really bothering.
The only way I was able to reduce the occurrence of the flicker is when I switch the Apple tv format from 4K HDR 60hz to 4K HDR 24hz, any other hz in between would result in the flicker. The match frame rate option doesn’t work in my case too, probably because Infuse transcodes the video file directly, so Apple TV treats the video as native 60hz as opposed to the original 24hz.
However, 24hz is really bad on the eye when I’m operating the Apple tv interface. Also, setting it to 24hz does not eliminate the flicker entirely, merely reduces it to acceptable level.
I found a solution, that is by using the Plex app, the option to choose transcoding conversion helps as I was able to pick “convert automatically” which resolves my issue (able to set format back to HDR 60hz, and no flickers), but the only downside of this is that the app I’m using would then be Plex, not Infuse.
Is there any chance that the transcoding conversion solution would be added to Infuse? Or, is there any other solutions that I’ve missed that would eliminate the flicker? There’s no flicker when I watch these MKV shows on my mac so I thought the video files should be fine.
Thanks in advance. And keep up the great job on Infuse!
