I second that. Why not just stick with the native player UI?
While i don’t agree with all of Apple’s design choices, the native ATV player UI is IMHO perfect and doesn’t need to be altered in any way. Every tvOS app nowadays thinks it has to create/use it’s own custom player UI. Most of them for the worse.
INFUSE has done a great job in altering the UI for the swipe-down-menu part. For example the addition of subtitle settings is really great and much appreciated.
But INFUSE also altered the timeline/progress bar UI for the worse:
- A single tap should show the progress bar for about 3-4 seconds before fade out and not only 1 second as of right now.
- A second tap should switch to the current/end time like the native UI does
- When pausing the video, the current preview thumb should show up automatically. It worked a few updates back but was removed in a recent update. Why?
- Also the double tap to zoom in is a great feature of the native UI
Why remove all those useful things?
I’d also keep that like the native UI does. IMHO it makes sense to show the current position when skipping.
