I am looking to start using Infuse instead of Plex as my player, but still using Plex as my server on my Synology NAS. After my initial testing, everything seems to play fine on my Apple TV 4K and will play on my iPad and iPhone on my home network, however I can’t get content to play well over 4G or on work WiFi. Media takes a long time to start playing and then will buffer after about 10 seconds for 30-40 seconds, then will play again briefly. There aren’t restrictions on work WiFi, I can play the same media in the Plex app with no issues, so I’m quite confused. I can’t see that it’s the conversion since it’ll play on home network, and I can’t see that it’s the network as tested on 4G too and Plex plays fine.
I used to use Handbrake to convert but recently I’ve switched to iFlicks beta using the iTunes preset. Files converted with both of these methods will not play on iPhone or iPad unless on local home network.
Everything seems to sync fine, all artwork comes down and the sync wheel stops, indicating all is done.
Any ideas would be most welcome as the Plex player just doesn’t cut it so really want to use Infuse, but can’t.
