I have been trying ATV 4k device for 2 Days.
Until now, in my opnion, Apple device and infuse are not acceptable for 4K movies etc.
Lots of movies are unplayable with infuse.
Colour for 4k films is really worse than 1080p Bluray.
1080p movies has more vivid & pure colours than 4k.
Also when ı choice 4k hdr 60hz from main menu, all screens also main screen are greyish.
What is the reason of this?
Is apple 4k device not ready for 4k or infuse?
My tv and hdmi cables are suitable for 4k. hdr.
This file is a program stream and Infuse has issues with it. Program stream are typically used for broadcasting but are not at all common outside of that field.
And “demo files” do only need to work on a specific device and can have incompatibilities.
After remuxing with MkvToolnix,it works OK with Infuse on Apple TV 4K.
And since it is SDR, colors are OK.
The differences between files are not only resolution 4K vs 1080p.
One big difference is HDR (high dynamic range) which in short is a new way of coding brighness and colors.
There are 2 leading standards (HDR10 and Dolby Vision), both supported by Apple TV 4K.
And the way TVs handle HDR (and especially tone mapping) varies greatly, especially for HDR 10 TVs (for example high end Samsung TV series handle them very well, while the low end series are terrible at it).
Regarding your UHD Blu-Ray folders, Infuse does not yet support HDR on Apple TV 4K (they started shipping just 2 weeks ago), which is why the colors are wrong when you play them.
HDR support is planned for Infuse 5.5.6 (the very next version) if I remember well.
Exactly as stubbsy says!
Muxing is short for multiplexing, which is putting together several data streams (typically one video stream, one or several audio streams, plus none to several text streams) into a container.
Mkv (Matroska) is a very common and flexible container.
The .ts extension is for “transport stream” (I wrongly said program stream in my previous post). It is used to transport signals, for example in broadcasting, where you want all the data for the next second to be grouped and transmitted together.
When you remux, you don’t recompress or change in any way the video and audio data, which means you do not loose quality and it is a fairly quick operation.
