Infuse 3.3 now available

Infuse 3.3

Infuse 3.3 has arrived, and with it brings a whole host of under-the-hood improvements and features to make life better than ever before.

High-performance playback core

After the whirlwind of features added in the last few versions, we decided to take a step back and work to make things better from the inside out. We've entirely revamped the guts of what makes Infuse tick, and the end result is a shiny, brand-new playback core designed for speed and performance (seriously, it's really great). 

Google Cast background playback

Our mission in life over the past few months has been to provide awesome support for Google Cast, and today we're taking a huge step forward towards that goal by adding background playback. Infuse now features the ability to continue Casting to your TV while using other apps, or while your device is locked. Boom!

All-new Dolby Audio library

We've been working closely with our friends at Dolby on an all-new audio library to ensure you hear nothing but crystal clear sound while enjoying your movies and TV shows. Because let's face it, crisp, clear audio is waaayy better than hearing silence.

Plus a few other bits...

  • Auto-add existing subtitles when downloading videos from network shares
  • Improved metadata matching for Plex TV shows
  • Better support for direct URLs with embedded signatures
  • Option to manually toggle Dolby Audio effects
  • Resolved a rare WebDAV setup issue
  • Squashed a few more SSA subtitle bugs
  • Fixed a rare crash that occurred when opening the app
  • Other minor improvements and fixes

Thanks so much for using Infuse. We'd love to hear from you, so please feel free to post a comment below or drop us a note with any thoughts or questions you may have.

Introducing aTV Flash (xbmc edition)

aTV Flash (xbmc edition)

Introducing an all-new platform for running the latest XBMC version 13.2 (Gotham) on the original (silver) Apple TV - including support for the latest video add-ons, 1080p video, and more!

aTV Flash (xbmc edition) is finely tuned, optimized for speed, and provides a complete replacement for the standard Apple TV software.

How does it work?

Installation is done in about 5 minutes using a USB flash drive. We've also built in a special restore option, so should the need ever arise the original Apple TV software can easily be reinstalled at any time.

Is this different from aTV Flash (silver)?

The original aTV Flash (silver) installs add-ons alongside the native Apple TV software, aTV Flash (xbmc edition) replaces the Apple TV software entirely. Each serves a different purpose, but if your main goal is to get XBMC on your Apple TV then aTV Flash (xbmc edition) is the one you want.

Does it play 1080p?

Yes. By installing a special 1080p video card, the original Apple TV will be fully capable of playing most 1080p formats. 1080p video cards are available as an optional add-on when ordering. Note: Installing a 1080p video card replaces the standard Apple TV Wi-Fi card. A directly connected ethernet cable or USB Wi-Fi adapter (also available as an optional add-on) will be required for network access.

aTV Flash (black) 2.5

aTV Flash (black)

aTV Flash (black) 2.5 is here and with it comes the same great trakt sync that made its debut in Infuse 3 for iOS earlier this month. This all-new syncing method allows you to effortlessly keep your watched history in sync between devices. As an example, you can start watching a movie on your Apple TV, then finish it later on your iPad...Infuse will keep everything in sync automatically. Note: Syncing requires a free trakt.tv account.

Naturally, we've also added in a handful of other minor improvements and fixes to keep everything running smoothly.

How do I update?

As usual, updating can be done right on the Apple TV through the Maintenance > Manage Extras menu. If you need to re-install, links for the latest version can be found in your account under the Downloads tab.

If you're new to aTV Flash (black) you can learn more about everything it offers here.

Enjoy :-)
