So, recently I purchased the pro version of Infuse for TVOS.
So far I’ve been using it to play videos directly from my Apple Time Capsule.
Every video played just fine, until today, when I tried playing a (The) Grand Tour episode (1080p, 5.1 channels, MKV HEVC H.265, 1.6GB, 71 mins).
The video was stuttering to the point of being completely unwatchable. Even though the very same video plays completely fine in VLC for TVOS or in any other device I’ve tried so far (VLC in Windows, File Explorer on Android or PlayerXtreme on iOS)
Any other MKV video in H.264 (not H.265) also plays without any problem in Infuse.
Any idea how to make the video play on my Apple TV using the Infuse app?
New in tvOS 11.0 - Support for High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC).
High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) is a new standard for video encoding that offers substantially better compression than H.264 at the same level of visual quality.
Use AV Foundation to playback movies containing HEVC encoded tracks, and to export videos.
VideoToolbox clients can encode and decode HEVC video bitstreams.
@James Does this mean hardware decoding of HEVC will work on Apple TV 4 running on iOS 11?
I have tested H.265 with TVOS 11 Beta 4 and Infuse 5.5.1. The video stutters on ATV4 only.
But what I have noticed is on TVOS11 the audio passthrough output does not work, you will get only MultiChannel Input.
Do you have the same problem?
Wow, it is working absolutly fine now, Great Job!
The Audio Passthrough is still not working. On TVOS 11 I hear only digital noise on my Denon Receiver. I can switch the Audio option to Auto and my receiver shows Multi Input. Now you can hear the Audio.
On TVOS10 there was no problem with passthrough.
Thanks again for fixing the H.265 Problem!!
