Most important items in my opinion are
- more flexible sorting criteria. In the moment all movies are sorted alphabetically according to the name found in "The Movie DB". This results in very weird orders sometimes. At least use "sort be filename" as in Firecore for ATV2.
- make the metadata fields editable, at least some of them. Must are "name" and "rating" (ideal: Additional field "name for sorting" that can be edited)
- make it a real library. i.e. one can search for all movies of a certain actor etc.
- use also metadata found in the movie files themselves (as an option)
- show movies consisting of several files as one movie only (and play it concurrently)
- improve chapter navigation (not just chapter numbers)
- add replay of files with DRM (as in ATV2)

Most of these are probably already in the works and/or have already been stated elsewhere in this thread:

1.) File details: Video resolution (1080p, 720p, etc.) , audio codec and channels (DTS-HD MA 7.2, DTS 5.1);
2.) Frame rate matching (to get rid of the 4:3 pulldown);
3.) Audio delay and hastening;
4.) Ability to play trailers (pull from tMDb or other source)
5.) Recently added section
6.) 3D Support
7.) Support for H265/x265 format
8.) A setting for user control subtitle playback (option to use "default" track flags instead of "forced" track flags)
9.) Siri support (once the SDK is available to developers)

Full support of custom descriptions and custom artwork. Right now it can do both, but is very spotty. Sometimes the artwork pulls but no custom description. Other times the description pulls but no custom artwork. Sometimes neither.

Full support of .iso files. If the app is able to pull metadata of movies and TV shows, people are obviously watching video files not derived from iTunes. So no reason not to allow .iso file support.

My wish list:
1. Search for movies and ACTORS
2. Date added to movies (I have +3000 movies so it would be great to have that function)
3. shuffle play to all music not just one artist / album
4. Update all movies / music
5. subtitles (opensubtitles)

I love the app. Currently have only 3 favorites on the top menu. Any way to increase that number or open a "browser view" that allows me to play from a folder on the network directly.

The ability to remotely watch videos from a NAS or computer when you are away from your home network, (without having to install a helper app or change the configuration on your router), similar to what the Orb app offered before their company was sold.

  2. Video preview while scrubbing.

1) rewrite the metadata agent. In my case no metadata for >80% of my movies is loaded in the main view. Choosing a movie will load the metadata immediatly but going back to the main view there is no cover shown for this movie!?! Some movie posters did not load 100% and are partly black.
2) integrate some sorting functions like by date added, last viewed etc...
3) mark the media as watched/unwatched (and to sort by this status of course).
4) give us a delete function
5) let us connect to our servers via NFS
6) don't show subfolders within the favorite folder - just the movies
7) integrate Trailers
8 ) give us theme music for TV shows
9) integrate preview thumbnails while FF / Rewind

Can't believe this hasn't been mentioned more. This should be priority number one in my opinion.

My list:

  1. Make the Play button always default action (highlighted) and "hide" the edit button or make it smaller.
  2. Put the play button and/or edit button underneath the slider for choosing the episode (with series), because I find it more logical to first select the desired episode and than choose the action (play, edit, etcetera).

Yes please! It's the most important reason for keeping Plex on my aTV.

The other reason is watched/unwatched state, which I believe is already being worked on Smile

A nice little touch would be to allow us to set artwork for our 'favourites' somehow so that they're more (visually) recognisable.

1) Multi part videos shown as one entry in grid/list.
--> MovieName
--/-->MovieNamePart1.*
--/-->MovieNamePart2.*

Also let us choose manually, if multiple files in a directory should be treated as individual movies or one.

2) Make metadata of single episodes of a series editable, if the automatically matched metadata is wrong or not present.
3) Allow to choose a different poster art from the online databases, same for background art
4) Implement NFS shares
5) View which gets rid of the folder structure (I have multiple locations where movies are stored, but I want them to see in a single view)

Thanks a lot for an otherwise very nice first release for tvOS! Smile

I'll buy this and an AtV4 as soon as .iso support comes.

I'm also willing to pay extra for 3D support as an in-purchase add-in.

I just downloaded late last night. So he's my preliminary wish list.

  1. Support existing metadata. All of my movies have been run through metaz and already have posters and info in their metadata. No need to fetch it anew if it already exists.
  2. Virtual movie folders. Auto group based on metadata like genre for easier navigation of large libraries. Also makes it easier when I feel like a comedy or something.
  3. Speed. I know metadata speed is coming, but also playback speed. It takes awhile for anything to start playing for me. The other app that I've been using is almost instant when accessing the same server.
  4. Save metadata to the server. I have multiple aTV's so it'd be nice if when one loaded the metadata that it added it to the folder on the server that the others could just read in. It's a pain to load it on each one.

As the movie page in Infuse takes it's interface cues from iTunes movies, I would like to see a TV season in Infuse look like the TV show interface in iTunes. Currently, Infuse simply uses the same interface for both types.

I know people like Rotten Tomatoes and IMDB ratings but i would much prefer to have Metacritic ratings to be displayed. I consider them more trustworthy than anything else.

Just remember all of those services cost $$$. One of the great things is the cost of Infuse. Not sure I'd want the price raised for that, but that's my 2 cents

Ditto on #1, with the emphasis on reading iTunes metadata and ordering TV shows accordingly.

Please add the ability to sort movies by recently added (date)...(like plex has). This was the one feature that Firecore was missing originally. This is a MUST for those of us who have large libraries, because adding a movie will get lost/diluted.

Thanks!

Triple yes. I have a huge collection, and I prefer all the options Plex has, but I don't like the complexity overall, mind you.

I don't understand - what do you mean @schmitz?

I mean an option that movies from the same series are displayed summarized.
So for exaple there is the "The Lord of the Rings Collection" which contains the 3 Movies from this series...

YES PLEASE

My (few) wishes:

  1. Folder art on the homepage/favorites.
  2. List view
  3. Full alphabetic sort (mixed folders/files)

List video is critical. Bypasses lengthy metdata lookups. Used it on my ATV2
