I'm loving Infuse so far. Everything loads super quickly (720p and even 1080p remuxes of 30-50 GB).
HOWEVER, when playing 4k mkv's, the loading animation is on for about 10-35 seconds before the mkvs start playing: it takes 10-35 seconds to load a new 4k mkv, to load after scrolling forward in the video, to load after skipping 10 seconds of video playback, to load after changing the audio channel, or adding subtitles. Playback is great after it starts: no buffering at any point. But any change that you do while playing or opening a new 4k file takes a while to load.
Is this behavior expected?
Some 4k mkv's are only 15gb, and they take >10 seconds, while some 1080p mkv remuxes are ~35gb and only take a second or less to load, to fast forward, to load subtitles, or change audio tracks.
Can I do something else to make 4k mkv's load faster? Is there a setting I'm missing that is making 4k playback particularly slow?
I'm using a Windows 10 PC with a core i7 8700k, an RTX 2080, and 16gb of ram to store my content. I use an Apple TV 4k to stream the content from the PC using Infuse (latest version). I have tried ethernet and wifi on both the PC and the Apple TV (all 4 possible combinations). I have a 300/300 Mbits connection, and I've made sure the speeds are really that fast, both for download and upload.
Thanks in advance for your help!
