Slow seek on AppleTV

After doing a seek, it takes about 5 seconds or more to play the video, I’ve already changed the “streaming cache” to memory only and legacy but it hasn’t changed absolutely anything, I’m using plex as a backend but I’ve already tested with jellyfin, emby and smb as a backend and they all have the same performance, on other players (plex, jellyfin, etc.) it is much faster, any idea to solve this?

Thanks.

It may help to specify what version number of Infuse, WiFi or Ethernet, speed test results in Infuse and specs on the video you’re seeing this in.

Does the file have Dolby Digital Plus Atmos? I find that videos with Atmos have a delay when seeking. Non-Atmos files are instant for me.

Sure, I edited the topic adding more information.

Yes, I noticed the same, files Non-Atmos are faster to seek, did you find any solution?

EDIT: on the iPhone it works perfectly, fast seeks
