Plex accounts on Infuse

I just linked my Plex account with Infuse. I’m loving the way Infuse looks but I’m wondering if you can access your different Plex users with Infuse. For example, I have Plex Home and have separate Plex accounts for people in my family on my Plex server. Can this be done or is it exclusive to the Plex app?

This is not available yet, but multi-user support is something we plan to have available in a future update.


Hi James

I’ve only just come across Infuse recently and I am very interested in this feature of having multi-user support.

I’m currently using the Plex app on Apple TV 4K and it’s a big let down compared to Infuse 5.

Do you have any sort of time frame? I’d really like to use Infuse as the main client on my Apple TV.


No hard ETA right now, but it could be available in late 2018 or early 2019.

Hi there, just wanted to mention that as soon as this is possible Im more than happy to buy Infuse for all my devices. But don’t stress it, just make it right.

Hi, just wondering if there was any update on this? Plex user switching is the only feature I miss since switching from Plex app!

6.4. Progress!

We are well after « it could be available in late 2018 or early 2019 » and I don’t see it in this incoming features thread. Does it means it has been implemented ?

Look in the pinned topic at the top of the Suggestions sub-forum to see what is currently being worked on and what is planned. That is frequently updates by FireCore with updated information.

Support for multi-user on tvOS is on the roadmap in the 6.6.x schedule That should introduce the concept of tracking stuff per user to Infuse.

I suspect that support for multi-user Plex support might appear some time after that (or at the same time if the integration to Plex isn’t too difficult) … although I guess on iOS there may be more additional work needed in the UI (as the currently planned work is tvOS only). But as multi-user Plex support isn’t mentioned on the current roadmap this is pure speculation on my part.

Yes but it is no more in this list contrary to what was stated so I was wondering if I missed something or like @remotevisitor said it was included in the multiuser for tvOS.
Thanks anyway for the reply

Any news about this ? Multi user account woud be simply one of the best features possible.

i recently subscribed to infused, was hoping I will get what i am looking for and i did get it partially, which is the buffering from PLEX player (yes it is way better, i get some buffer, but not as how it is with the plex player). but then the serious issue comes, multi user profiles. i could not get my profiles in PLEX synced, there are some content that are for my kids only and some from the older people, after re-searching, i found suggestion going back to 2017 (i did not want to go aby further) about the multi user profiles, and YTD we are still with planned, so is this really going to happen? how difficult it is to be done that infuse could not do it till date!!!

it was supposed to be early 2019 (as below):

and it is planned [Upcoming Features (updated 5/25/20)]

so the question is when??

I really want this feature for my PLEX home users as well!

Anything new?

It seems like there are two features being improperly combined in this thread.

Plex Media Server allows me to create users local to the server. Those users have different views of the media library. At a minimum, I would like to be able to tell Infuse which of those local users to connect as. Instead, when I authorize my Plex account, Infuse is connecting with my admin user and that’s definitely not the behavior I would want.

Second feature: Just like Netflix and other services, it would be nice if each member of the household had a custom / unique experience in Infuse on AppleTV. That is a completely different feature and much more complex and doesn’t really specifically appear on the roadmap.

I feel like Firecore is working on the second feature but not acknowledging requests for the first feature.

@claf Jellyfin allows you to select the default DLNA user… but multiple people use my Apple TV so I’m looking forward to having separate accounts, even if I just have to go to control center and switch the profile to switch the Infuse profile. I hope they’re working on the first one :upside_down_face:
