Stable Native 4K Player!
I was struggling to find the video player that can smoothly run 4K on my Apple TV 4K. I tried several free or cheaper video player but have no luck playing 4k video file smoothly from my NAS. I tried VLC, ABC, PlayerXtreme, FE but all of these failed at high-bitrate 4K videos(mkv). I thought it was my wifi speed at first but even on wired network I was still unsuccessful. That is until I decided to try this player. I benchmark this player with the same file I used on other media player and this able to run the video smoothly and in sync with the sound. Also, it automatically download media arts for the files. I do not usually review applications so this is a big deal for me to spend time spreading the word. Consolation is when you buy lifetime license for this app you also get the iOS version for free. I am not sure of they got a OSX app included as well?
Great player, missing a basic feature
I use an iPad Pro 99% of the time. I download videos from various sources but they’re rarely ever major films or tv shows. I’d really like the ability to edit metadata myself so I can clean up my library. While there’s a button that says “edit metadata”, all it really is is a search field for check a database. If your file isn’t on there, well, you get to have crappy cover art and crappy filenames. I thought that with the addition of Files app support I could use the method for metadata that they recommend on their website, but that doesn’t work on an iPad for some reason. I really don’t see why it’s so difficult to allow me to edit all the data for the file including the cover art on my iPad Pro. Seems really silly. I paid for a subscription for 2 years now thinking they’re add it, but nope. Still looking at a messy library on my iPad. As a player, I love it. Probably the best I’ve used. I’m just sick of waiting for a feature that doesn’t seem like it’s going to be added.
The best media player!!
Hands down the best media player on iOS, play pretty much any formats without any hiccups whatsoever! If you have server (ftp/smb) with all your media collections then infuse is the one for you. This is better client than Plex because this app will direct play anything without transcoding it first. My only problem with this app is the paying system, if you paid the pro version then you will not receive anymore update once the new pro version is release. But if you paid for subscription you’ll get update for future update including the new pro version. why can i just paid one time and get update forever? i’m planning to buy this but after looking at the paying system, i changed my mind. i’ll wait for infuse pro 6. and please include music player (mp3, flac, alac, and aac) and macOS app on the new pro version.
I purchased this app.. 1 many two years ago not paying attention to the fact that i would be charged a yearly fee. I bought it because of the reviews. In all this time it has never, ever worked at picking up my smb network when all other file managers and players I have tried pick up the network immediately. On this app, the circle just sits there spinning and spinning. I just forgot about it hoping it would be fixed and I could see what was the hype? Then I find out I didn't make a one time purchase....not happy. I have since cancelled my subscription and hope that it went through. The only thing keeping me from uninstall is to occasionally check my status. I don't ask for a refund (that would be nice) but having some use out of it for all the time and money I wasted would have been nice too. It looks like a nice app and I don't see how others are having success with the SMB connections. Just not me. Nplayer is my go to media player because it always connects and never fails. To the authors... Please make sure you cancel me immediately.
Good media manager app, Great ATV4k Player!
Here is the thing. Infuse is a good media manager app. It is nowhere near as good as Plex for media management, but its fine. It’s costs too much if you are using this simply to manage media or performing playback on an iPhone or iPad and the nature of the fact that is direct plays everything means its not really good outside of a WiFi connected device. What makes this app great is its playback capabilities, especially on an Apple TV 4K. For playing back video, particularly high resolution video with advanced audio codex, there is no equal. The quality of the video is superb. The quality of the audio is superb. The fact that it will down convert 4K to 1080p AND do HDR to SDR tone mapping is unique only to Infuse. (To my knowledge.) If you have a ATV4k and watch a lot of high quality content 4K HDR or otherwise and especially if you have a 4K TV, buy Infuse. Don’t bother with anything else. Just pay the money and be done with it.
There a few little tiny UI details I wish were part of Infuse. - When searching for metadata, there is no indication that a search is taking place until it shows the results. - The ability to change the “sort by” option on the fly versus having to go into the main menu settings would be nice. - On the iOS and iPadOS apps, the four soft buttons at the bottom aren’t very intuitive. Example: the magnifying glass makes me thing I’m searching my entire library, when in fact it’s the granular view of my library, with a search option. The file icon makes me think I’m going to my library, but I’m actually looking at the files I’ve pulled down locally on my device. - I wish the main library page (left-most icon) would show the “Collections” or “Genres”. Better yet, make the page customizable. All in all, I love this app. I love the seamlessness when airplaying. I love the Apple TV app. I love the performance. I love the price. I love the GUI. I love how much it is modeled after the native Apple apps, yet still it’s own thing. Half the price of Plex lifetime, and just as good!
Love it but...
I absolutely love this app! Using shared folder from external hard drive on my iMac. The app on Apple TV 4K gen4 running tvOS 13.2 works flawlessly. The app on my iPhone 10 XS Max running iOS 13.2.3, not so much. I was having to restart my phone every time I used the app just to get it to load a movie. Thought that maybe the latest iOS update broke it cause it was working fine till then. Saw that there was an update for infuse and thought it might address this. Updated and now when trying to watch anything on the iPhone app it starts to play for a few seconds and then gives a never ending spinner. I have tried restarting the iPhone and have deleted app and reinstalled to no avail. The latest update made the iPhone app completely useless. I would love to give this 5 stars but... Please fix this and I will change my rating.
The Awesome and the Not So Awesome (but still Awesome)
This is the best player I have ever tried and I’ve tried a ton (and keep evaluating new ones as they come out.) I’ve been using Infuse since it came out and always come back to it as my main choice. The Pro will play absolutely everything and flawlessly. The bad - I’ve been burned buying the previous pro stand alone version all of which have fallen by the wayside and left to rot. I am not a subscription fan. I understand innovation takes money and backing and I’ve sucked it up and do the subscription now. The added features have been awesome so I deal with it. (Although a bit cheaper would be nicer.) What I would like added is having a library/share with dual addresses - with one public and one private address for the same share so I don’t double up my posters and metadata for my NAS at home that I can access via a public IP on the road. All that being said, this is still the best player on the market and that warrants some props and some cash. Again, based on performance and features, you will not find one better.
The BEST Player and Access to ALL My Media!
I've owned this for quite some time and (after trying so many others) I’ve decided this App really has no competitors. I hope this helps explain exactly why I love this App and why I purchased Infuse Pro. Infuse is my 'go to' for viewing video files. I don't know exactly HOW it all works, but it really does work!! I use iCloud, Files, Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, OneDrive, my PC and an Über-TB Separate Hard Drive For Media Storage. I haven’t found A SINGLE THING I CANT ACCESS! As for the player itself? BAM!! This is IT!! The video display? OMG, it’s simply amazing! It's almost like the retina screen on my iPhone somehow doubled the number of micro-pixels. I dare you to compare the video quality of Infuse with any other media player. The audio is also amazing because Infuse offers the ability to give the audio a boost! Choose to increase your gain anywhere from 100% all the way up to 400%. This feature alone has turned what could've been a poor viewing experience into pure enjoyment! Highest Recommendation!!
Great app lousy purchasing system
I love the app and have it on my atv, it works well and 8s relatively trouble free. Every few weeks the app tells me I have upgrade to pro and locks me out, which would be fine if it weren’t for the fact that I already purchased the yearly service. The issue is my wife bought it on her account and the atv is connected to my account. So every few weeks I have to log into my wife’s account on the atv, open infuse, go back and log out of the wife’s account and then log back into mine. This is a hassle and it’s an unnecessary one. What I don’t get is why don’t you link the authentication to trakt? Then it wouldn’t matter what account the device was logged into since I would be logged in through trakt. Or figure something else out.
By far best media player for iPad!
I am new to iPad with an iPad Air 3rd generation running iPadOS and I love it! However, I think the the default video player in the files app in iPadOS is lacking and limited. So, I have gone through many video players lately trying to find the best replacement. I have found that with infuse! It has all the features I need: iPadOS 13 dark mode support, folder sorting and local file system support, touchID locking support, good touch gestures for play/pause, and a nice modern UI all in the free version. And you can get more features in pro version!
First the good - point it to your multimedia directory and let it do its thing. It will find most everything and get the Metadata automatically. Streams with ease, downloads with ease. The bad - the UI is terrible. Setting it up on your kids iPad you can only stop them from playing R rated movies, but you can’t stop them from seeing them. No easy way to mark a bunch of episodes as watched, no easy way to jump to a movie in the movies list. On and on the UI is irritating at best. If Infuse had the UI and UX of Plex, it would be the best. If Plex had the file management and streaming and downloading of Infuse, it would be the best. Unfortunately, they don’t so they are both half useful.
Best out there, but geared toward pirates
Infuse is the best alternative to iTunes Home Sharing. I've had a USB drive full of media connected to an Airport Express Basestation since IFPro arrived for the aTV. Populating the thousand files can be a little pokey in the beginning, but it's better than keeping a computer running all day (for iTunes or Plex). Major downer for me is the limited metadata support. The app defaults to - in a strong armed manner - pulling metadata information from the web. I prefer to use my own meticulously cultivated embedded metadata. Unfortunately, Infuse only recognizes a limited amount of this embedded information. The app does a good job with fetching, but it a) isn't always the best information, b) doesn't work with home movies, c) slows things down, and d) will use up some precious aTV/iDevice hard drive space. I suspect the metadata fetching feature is really geared to people acquiring movies from less-than-legitimate sources. All in all, I've been happy with what the developer has been able to do with the app, but metadata handling is not quite there.
Shady business practices
So this company breaks Infuse 4 in iOS 11 and/or on the iPhone X - I have to assume they broke it intentionally because my other media players still work fine - then withdraws it, and the update I was notified about, from the App Store, likely with the expectation that us lemmings will just pay up for pro features again in v5. Not only is that not happening, but I’m deleting Refuse... uh, Infuse 4 and 5 and never looking at Firecore apps again. Building goodwill... you’re doing it wrong! These developers that are now charging large fees in lieu of subscriptions think we don’t realize that the lifespan of these apps is only a few years, at most. So effectively we’re still paying subscriptions, assuming we keep buying the new versions. But with these slimy buggers I’m calling it one and done.
I was so skeptical about this software when I first purchased it, but reading what it offered, I immediately purchased the lifetime subscription option. What is the single most important thing to me is they continue to improve it. They add features, pretty regularly and stability improvements as well. I love it! I have four Apple TV’s, and two 10 terabyte media servers and it is the best thing for it. I cannot be without this software ever! I check for updates like a religion! Keep ‘em coming. Love what they do!
