The Infuse App Media Player for Apple TV

Access and play your entire collection of TV and movie content

Firecore’s Infuse app is a beautifully designed media player for iOS and Apple TV that lets you play virtually every type of video file out there. The idea behind Infuse is that many users have an existing collection of TV and movie content in an array of file types they'd like to watch on an Apple TV. Apple TVs, however, can play only content provided by iTunes or specialized apps.

Infuse solves the problem with its ability to access and play almost any kind of media format including AVI, WMV, and more. It can also connect with UPnP/DLNA apps such as Plex, Kodi (XBMC), Serviio, WMC, PS3 Media Server, and others to browse, stream, and download videos. 

Infuse works with the iPhone, iPad, Apple TV 4, and Apple TV 4K.

Stream Almost Anything

Infuse helps users get more out of their existing media libraries. If you have a large collection of movies and TV shows in numerous formats stored on various networked devices across your office or home, Infuse consolidates all that content into one easy-to-reach place.

Infuse can find and handle media stored on almost anything, including a Mac, PC, NAS, wireless drive, or a server app such as Plex, Kodi, or Serviio. Any local devices will be detected in seconds, making setup a snap. There's no need to transcode content between formats; just point the app toward where your videos are stored and it will catalog them for you, even adding artwork and pertinent details. It then makes all your content available in its slick, attractive Library view, which offers an interface very much like what you’re used to seeing in iTunes movies.

Infuse incorporates voice recognition using the Siri Remote for the Apple TV.

Additional Features

Additional features include detailed movie information along with folder and catalog support. Infuse also incorporates powerful Spotlight search and Smart Filters to help you browse content by genre, rating, release date, and more, as well as your own content ratings using the Trakt system.

Smart Filters let you create and keep search results on the app’s home screen, which means you can gather collections such as children's movies or unwatched movies and access them easily via the Siri Remote. Add your own artwork to movies or shows using a built-in artwork selector. There’s also subtitle support and much more.

Infuse 6.2 offers new support for creating playlists, a loop and shuffle feature for all your content, more external storage, and other improvements.

Since Infuse works not just with Apple TVs, but also with any iOS device (iPad, iPad Pro, iPhone, iPod touch), access all your media from all your devices just about anywhere.

Older Apple TV? No Problem

If you have an older Apple TV, Firecore offers aTV Flash (first-generation Apple TVs) and aTV Flash Black (second-generation Apple TVs). These apps turn your old Apple box into a powerful media streaming solution. They perform many of the same functions as Infuse, but also boast a web browser, weather data, Trakt ratings, and support for third-party apps. The only snag for owners of older Apple TV boxes wanting to install the software is that they need to jailbreak their Apple TV first; the developers offer instructions using Seas0nPass.
