Stack rewind/fast-forward

When using rewind or fast-forward 10s, Infuse waits until that portion of the video has loaded before it will allow another click. I would like the ability to keep tapping/pressing the button and adding to the amount that it is changing, even if the current new frame hasn’t loaded. This is especially noticeable when on WiFi devices they may take a few seconds to load. In this case if I want to rewind thirty seconds I have to press the button, wait to load 3s, press again, wait again 3s, then press the last time and wait 3s again.

Also show the current count as it progresses: 10s, 20s, 30s


What device are you seeing this on? I just tried on the ATV and it appears to stack on mine. I just did a minute with 6 rapid pressed both forward and back.

iOS and iPadOS same thing as both are WiFi devices. You have to make sure you are at a spot that hasn’t cached already though. Try skipping ahead and then see.

I may be doing it wrong but I just jumped 5+ minutes in just a few seconds of clicking forward and then went back in the same time. The ATV is on Ethernet so that may be the difference.

Does this still work for you on tvOS 17? Cause I could do rapid presses up until the newest tvOS update and now stacking rewind / fast-forward more times than once usually makes the player switch to “Pause then Rewind” mode which appears to be a bug in InFuse case all other apps can still stack the 10-sec remote presses.

I’m not where I can try it right now but I’ll give it a shot later and let you know.

Just checked and yes, it’s still working. You may want to check in the Infuse settings and just make sure the Chapter Control under the playback settings didn’t get reset with one of the recent updates.

I figured it out. Silly me, it wasn’t the tvOS 17 update. I didn’t realize that I switched my output Apple TV speaker setting to the HomePod the same time as I did the update.

This then becomes a “HomePod-connectivity QOL / bugfix” feature. And I say bugfix because no other player from Netflix to Disney suffers from this “stacking rewind /fast forward” button issue when connected to a HomePod.

Finally figured out why Infuse has this problem with the HomePod while other apps don’t.

Somehow even third party apps like Disney+ are able to seek back and forward immediately as they somehow account for the inherent audio lag.

So Infuse, in its input-controller, simply needs to account for that lag and this problem gets fixed. Or even just letting users toggle “Hold for fast forward / rewind” would work to solve the problem.
