Here’s a streaming video option that would have made my list of apps I want to see on the Apple TV, except that I already knew it was coming soon. Infuse is one of the most beautiful ways of watching just about any video format on your iPhone or iPad, and it’s landing on the Apple TV App Store tomorrow, Dec. 4.
Stream your movies from where you want, how you want
Whether you have them on a Mac, PC, NAS, or Wi-Fi drive, Infuse can stream them. Got your movies stored on a server app like Plex, Kodi, or Serviio? No problem, Infuse has those covered, too. Infuse 4 for Apple TV will provide you with a clean interface from which to enjoy a wide array of video types, including the standard MP4, M4V, MOV, and these other formats:
The only drawback is that you can’t play DRM-protected movies or TV shows from the iTunes store, but I’ve yet to find an option for those other than the native apps themselves.
Movie details, artwork, and more
Infuse 4 for Apple TV will provide you with automatic movie details along with fetching artwork for you, and it will keep your watched progress synchronized with other devices using trakt.tv. The app will download subtitles from OpenSubtitles, along with including many other great features.
Getting Infuse 4 for Apple TV
All current users of Infuse 3 on iOS will get a free upgrade to version 4. There’s no word yet on pricing if you’re new to the app, but the current version is free with some limitations on the iOS App Store. FireCore, the developer behind the app, also offers Infuse Pro as a $9.99 purchase.
