Infuse 5.7.6 with our new advanced video upscaling is now rolling out on the App Store. Grin

It's rolling out to users or just submitted to Apple?

Is it optional so that one can do a comparison between activated and non-activated? I didn't find a toggle switch in the iOS app.

No toggle. On all the time.

I think I read at AVS it does such a good job they felt it should be on all the time.

If it's unquestionably that good it is of course awesome, and a very important addition to Infuse. But it would have been really interesting to do kind of a A/B test to check the difference.

Does this update also mean that it is no longer necessary to change the resolution on the Apple TV to the native resolution of the video to get the best possible picture quality?

I was a beta tester and there was a toggle available in some builds. I considered the picture to be noticeably better in all instances so couldn’t envisage any situation where I’d have it set to off.

Regarding the need to change resolution, that will still depend on whether or not your tv has a better scaler. I certainly have no issue leaving my Apple TV at 4k and letting infuse scale though.

Was the final solution a Lanczos?

Did a test with a particular scene of a movie I use usually and this time infuse passed the test! Good work James!

I still see much better results with the native player, specially with low quality content suffering serious issues (blocking, banding, etc).

My main use is for 1080p/24 tv shows, and I think it is certainly an improvement in the crispness of the image. My new Dune 4K Pro has an excellent image, and I think the new version of Infuse is on par with it. So much I will prob sell the Dune and just use the ATV4K and Infuse for all my NAS playback.

My personal opinion is it is a noticeable improvement. Honestly, I have seen better upscaling but this is now "good enough" and before this release it just wasn't.

Thanks for the upscaling update!
Tested it on Infuse vs Plex and Infuse is now looking better (sharper) than Plex! Yay!
(I'm watching 720p content on 1080p TV using Apple TV 4K)

carlosgp mentioned that "I still see much better results with the native player, specially with low quality content suffering serious issues (blocking, banding, etc)." I can confirm that video compression artefacts (like blotches) are more pronounced than on Plex, but that's only because Plex's picture is softer overall.

I wonder how to play the video through native player? I saw someone mentioned in the thread that Plex uses native player. Still, I can clearly see Infuse is sharper on my 720p content.

After a lot of 1080p/24 content, I can say it looks great. I'm only using the ATV and Infuse for streaming from my NAS now.

I have some files with high framerate (60fps) and it seems the new upscaling is not working on that files? What can I do to solve that?

I’m sure high framerate material is unsupported

The Lighthouse shows very grainy on my TV and friend’s TV, but when we watch with plex we don’t have this problem.

Someone in this thread said that AirPlaying infuse to your Apple TV fixes this, and it did. But I’d like to know how to fix this without AirPlaying. Thank you! And the username is a joke dw lol

Welcome to the forum!

Are you using an ATV on the tv running Infuse and getting a grainy pic? If so a bit more info would help. Which ATV, what version of tvOS, what version of Infuse etc? If you are using infuse, how is the share connected? Via Plex share, SMB, DLNA, etc? Is it the pro version of infuse or the free version?

And please, full version numbers since the updates happen often it helps to be specific.

Also, you may have better luck starting a new thread since this one is over a year old and really a different issue. Wink
