I am using the paid Infuse 5 Pro app on iOS and tvOS devices. I decided to use the paid Pro Version, because of the apple family sharing option.
My kids and my wife are using the app as well, for free because of the apple familysharing mechanism.
Everybody has it’s own trakt.tv account for traking which content was already watched.
The infuse subscription and family sharing option requires to use the same trakt.tv account on all devices, that would mean, my wife and kids have to use the same account as myself. But we want to keep the trakt information seperate.
I would really appreciate to buy the lifetime subscription, but the way how the shareing is done til veriosn 5, is not acceptable for us.
OK, than nothing has changed. And thats really bad news.
To realise the family sharing over one trakt account is not a good solution for families.
I don’t want my family members to mark movies or shows as watched, that I haven’t seen and visa versa.
So I’m forced to use and buy the “pro” Apps, to have family sharing and a trakt account for everyone, how it should be.
But this is a quiet expensive solution compared to the lifetime subscription offer.
Thanks James. However am I right that it won’t ignore the watch history.
For exemple if I watched a particular movie 2 years ago and it is in my trakt history. If my brother now uses my trakt account with scrobble disabled to enable family sharing and adds the same movie to Infuse, his Infuse will flag that movie as watched and he has no way to change that? (I do I get this wrong?)
Yes, hoping Apple will allow for Family Sharing with subscriptions as this would be the cleanest way of doing it! But in the meantime would you maybe consider a way to use trakt login purely to enable family sharing? (i.e. have infuse let users log into trakt purely for licence validation and then ignore all the trakt-related functionalities)
