macOS: Keyboard shortcuts

Thanks for the clarification, I took it for granted and assumed it was a bug.

As we still have this issue with “forced subtitles” on macOS, I’m looking if there is a keystrokes to disable them when you are looking a video?

as an extra question, is there a list somewhere with all the keystrokes we can use when we play a video?

I’m hoping that seek forward/backward 5 seconds (as seen in your screenshot) will be part of this feature when it comes out. :crossed_fingers:

Same here.
This bug still exists in version 7.1.1 (7.1.3803)

Maybe I’m missing something but I can’t find a way to fast forward skip via the keyboard when watching a movie on my M1 iMac Media centre. I’m missing the option to fast forward/skip via the left-right arrows on my keyboard.

how do I skip fast forward in full-screen mode without using the mouse?

I moved your post to a currently running thread in the suggestions forum for this feature. (note that this thread is tagged “planned” :wink: )

Does this suggest I can skip forward via arrow key’s? As it won’t work for me

No, this is a thread requesting the ability to use keyboard shortcuts to control infuse. Since the Mac version is relatively new it’s still a work in process and this is one feature that is being asked for.

If you read the full thread you’ll see where it’s on the list of coming features.

@james It’s still unfinished , why does it take so long?It’s so important to Mac users , I’m depressed.

it’s really one of the feature I’m waiting for too… do we have an idea if it’ll come “soon” or more next year feature?

In case you don’t know, there’s a continuously updated roadmap in the forum:

How do you pause playback? Spacebar doesn’t seem to work. I’m trying to open preferences for the app and nothing opens when I click it. When I try to open help, it says ‘help isn’t available for Infuse’. It also doesn’t seem to want to sync with my Apple TV app.

This feels a lot like an alpha, let alone a beta or release app.

I honestly can’t believe for a paid video player we need to vote to enable press space to pause/resume playback

If you notice, this thread in tagged as planned and you can keep track of where this feature is on the upcoming releases here.

Sure. This was initially an iOS app and we can see some drawbacks from this ancestry.
I also which to have basic shortcut support on the Mac.

On the plus side, this is the only player I trust to play everything from SDR to Dolby Vision in about any format and it has support for nice things such as spatial audio, or internet drives.
It is a pleasure to use on iPhone, iPad and Apple TV (not yet so much on the Mac).
And it is very nice to have syncing and the same features betwenn iPad, iPhone, Apple TV and now the Mac.

Note: I am a long time Infuse Pro (and before that aTV Flash) user and supporter :slight_smile:

It’s a fantastic iOS and Apple TV app. The Mac app is a huge disappointment.

From ammarrrr - It’s a fantastic iOS and Apple TV app. The Mac app is a huge disappointment.

I have to fully agree with this statement. The Mac app is hugely missing keyboard shortcut support, and I suspect for Windows as well (though, not sure on that one). The dev team really need to push this up the to do list, I suspect quite a few people watch shows via their computers, and in my case, I like to control the media player via my iPad within the Home Theater and use keyboard shortcuts. PLEX has had this feature like forever, how hard can it be. Common guys, be a nice Xmas update :slight_smile:

yep I agree as well I ditched Infuse again on my MacMini media center and went back to Movist Pro as it has shortcuts and seems also to be more reliable with a wider format of files.
