Video playback frame skipping (macOS apple silicon)

Hello there,

It seems like Infuse is skipping one or two frames every second given a MKV HEVC 4K HDR file. Device is an MacBook Pro 16" M1 Pro base model. Please let me know how I can extract more information from this file for diagnosis.

At first I assumed it was the file’s (torrent’s) fault, so I went and bought the movie on Apple TV. Recently I went back to it and decided to open the file in VLC. Surprisingly, there was no stutter at all. This is most apparent in panning shots where playback would skip a frame.

Could it be a network issue? I.e. Could Infuse be fetching/scanning files in the background causing more load on the network? Again this stutter does not happen while using VLC.
