Many features should make more sense when using English. Naturally, we’ll have everything translated for an official release.
With Dolby/DTS over HDMI enabled, Infuse will send the unchanged Dolby/DTS audio to your TV receive. If you’re hearing buzzing, then it’s likely the device connected to your Apple TV doesn’t support this audio format, and disabling the setting is recommended.
Right now Infuse will display folders first, then movies, then tv shows, then everything else.
Everything needs to be decoded, no matter the format.
Some formats (like h.264) are eligible for HW decoding, which is inherently better than the fallback of SW based decoding. This has a more noticeable difference on mobile devices, as HW decoding will greatly extend battery life.
The only issues i have at the minute is with metadata, id like to be able to choose which artwork cover is used (from theTVDB selection). Is this something planned?
I’ve tried putting my own “folder.jpg” in for TV series which shows at first, but as soon as it gathers the metadata for that show it overwrites my “folder.jpg” image, is that the desired behaviour? i would expect my file to overwrite the artwork.
Another little thing, when you select a TV series, it shows the list of episodes at the bottom that you can scroll through, but the episode information doesn’t change until you click that episode. It would be nice that the episode information changed as you scrolled through the episodes rather than have to click on the episode to get the information. This is something that the PLEX app currently does.
I created a few SMB network shares with 55 or so movies and a few TV series (including ones that have multiple seasons), all were identified correctly, metadata was correctly picked up, etc. Subtitles selection works nicely, as does selecting from multiple audio steams. Just watched an episode of Supernatural and it worked perfectly.
As you said, there are various missing labels at the moment (even for a UK English Apple TV) but that’s no issue!
One thing - I just noticed you’ve got auto-resume support (so if you stop watching,then come back later, select the file and click play it starts from where you left off).
This will obviously be useful the vast majority of the time, but would it perhaps be possible to have a Play (Resume) and Play (From start) option perhaps?
Whoops, I saw the tweet after i got the TestFlight email and started submitting feedback directly from within TestFlight.
My first impressions and feedback emails were:
Placeholders for non English language, but was mentioned in this thread
The swipe down overlay pauses the movie. The default behavior in default apps is let the video play under the overlay
When the summary is longer than the preview allows there is no way to read more. iTunes movies on the Apple TV lets you click the text to see more. Also mentioned in thread.
Clicking an item in The top shelf recently watched goes to a sub view. In case of tv shows there is no easy way to continue where you left off as the bottom bar displays the recently watched, not next episodes of the show you clicked.
The default behavior of side clicking the touchpad doesn’t reverse and fast forward 10 seconds. Clicking and holding to keep fast forwarding also doesn’t work. Both pause and resume playback.
maybe move most of the subtitle options to settings. The overlay can get a bit crowded. Most options will be set and forget except for timing offset and stuff
maybe create separate views for listing unplayed and recently added? Now there is a setting to sort by date but having access to both without toggling would be nice
does the chapter view support chapter titles and or thumbnails? Didn’t have a suitable file to test that with
