I absolutely love Infuse. It is my favorite media player by far for IOS.
However, I’m not yet able to use Infuse effectively on AppleTV.
There are several reasons for this:
- No preview thumbnails. I have seen that this is on the Infuse roadmap, but it’s not in the product right now. This is a navigation killer.
- Can do either chapter forward/reverse or timed forward/reverse, but not both at the same time.
The combination of #1 and #2 makes timeshifting a lot harder than it needs to be.
The killer is, NONE Of this stuff is present in iPhone/iPad. I can easily move forward/behind and do chapter jumping. There is even a cool graphic that tells me how far forward or behind I am going when I’m using my thumb and not using the buttons.
None of this is available on Apple TV. So, even though I ABSOLUTELY HATE the MrMC interface, I’m forced to keep using it while praying that Infuse will get these features soon.
And no…I do not want to CAST from my iPhone to my Apple TV. That’s extremely inconvenient as a primary means to watch TV.
I’m really hoping for some new releases for Infuse in 2018. There’s really no comparison to anything out there…
