James from FireCore stated on their blog that HD audio is not currently supported. Unfortunately, this is a deal breaker for me since I was looking to replace my HTPC with the ATV + Infuse.Does the audio pass through work with lossless codecs? If not now, will it ever?
I was a beta tester for Infuse. It works well with the standard file types (mp4, mkv, srt) but is far from being the ultimate solution to all your video playing needs. Here's where it currently struggles or is completely useless for:
- I have a ton of camcorder clips in mts format. Infuse freezes the moment I start to play them.
- it does not do deinterlacing of interlaced video (e.g. DVD rips in 60i)
- I noticed jerkiness when playing high bitrate videos
- it takes several seconds to start or resume play
I will not pay for Infuse in its current state. My TV's built-in media player, although it has an ugly UI, plays everything I throw at it and streams from my NAS over dlna so I will continue to use that.
