Infuse for Android

I ditched the ATV and now use infuse on iPhone + chromecast. Works better IMO.

I use my shield pro with plex for most of my movie watching. It supports Dolby vision and I get bitstreaming support.

I am having both ATV 4K and shield pro.
I bought the shield mainly due to the real atmos playback, as I am using an atmos Soundsystem for my homecinema.
Also, I like the AI upscaling. Not always, but as one can switch between on and off with just one click, it’s easy to decide.
I am using kodi. Kodi and the whole Android GUI can’t compete with ATV and especially with infuse in any way. It’s ok, and one gets used to it.
Having infuse on the shield would be phantastic.
Seems, I am not the only one, who would love it.
So James, think about it, please :-).

We have 2 ATV4K that sit idle more so now that AppleTV app is available on the Shield. I keep the ATV4K hoping one day Apple will allow bitstream pass through Audio. At some point I will give up and sell them, but for now they sit.

Infuse for Android would be a game changer as Kodi/Emby is constat work to keep them in sync and working and Plex forces transcoding.

Infuse for Android would be a truly game changer. I don’t know who difficult a port could be but honestly it’s truly impossible doing a worse job than Plex player

It would probably be a complete rewrite as Android doesn’t support the metal renderer. I’d really like an nvidia shield version but I’m not sure if the amount of people who would purchase the app would be worth the work put into it.

It really blows my mind that there isn’t a good third party alternative on android outside the major players.

Yeah I am so sick of Kodi with the Emby plug-in. Every time Kodi updates the Kodi plug-in breaks around various other issues that Kodi keep introducing. MrMC is almost too dumbed down and is hit of miss with Emby support. If Infuse did Android and shared the library across devices I would be all in.

I actually fine ATV4K sharper than the Shield even with AI turned on. Also AI only works on certain resolutions and refresh rates. The on,y thing that stops me from using my ATV4K with Infuse (even though I bought the subscription) is the lack of full audio pass though of certain audio formats and the conversion of them to PCM. If Apple would allow full pass through and Infuse would support it then movies would be all ATV4K all day every day.

+1 requested from last 7 years

Any updates on that? Android tv is more than capable run infuse. Even DV better support, than on atv, also sound systems better works with tv, than limited atv.
Personally own 77A80j and i have everything on android tv i use, only need infuse and i can get rid of atv.
Tv+, youtube(better streaming quality than atv), netflix with calibrated mode. Please give up infuse on android tv.

Sadly I don’t think they will ever do it. People have been pleading with them for a few years now. Kodi is the only reason I stick with nVidia Shield becasue it supports passthrough and frame rate changing, but Apple TV has a slightly better PQ. If Apple supported pass through Audio then I would consider going all in on apply TV especially with the new remote.

They should do a Kickstarter or Go Fund Me to gauge the true commitment of people to want an Android version.

I really hope that they port infuse to Android TV sometime, im really happy with infuse on my iOS devices for playing my dropbox stored Media library. but i have another Android TV screen on my hose and i have to manually bring my apple tv to that TV screen in order to use infuse…
i dont want to need to move all my library to another system and stop using infuse…

+1 on the feature

BTW in recent years Nvidia supported many devs and projects to improve the Android’s ecosystem. An excellent example is Plex that on the Shield used to be ugly and slow and Nvidia helped making it almost a standard de facto in terms of audio and video fidelity

I would really like this app working in Android, specifically optimized for Nvidia Shield.


Same as others, I would love to have this on my shield tv pro too, would be a killer combination

YES PLEASE I BEG . I’m really fristrated trying to find an infuse replacmemt on Google TV. I tried almost sll of them. So annoying. Infuse is SOO GOOD that it makes everything else feel redundant :frowning:

Even though I got Apple TV but I still hope Infuse can do for Google TV.

hey @james any chance to see, sooner or later, an Infuse version for Android?

that would be definitely great … and I would also support this project, in case just let me know.

Infuse would be the perfect partner in crime for Nvidia Shield, or even Amazon Fire Stick 4k.

Please let us know :slight_smile: I can’t wait
