Welcome to the forum!

Apple TV 4K and Infuse play 4K HDR 10Bit x265 without a hitch.

Usually any issues arise from WiFi issues or TV settings when there are problems. Infuse handles those files like a champ.

As NC mentioned, the Apple TV 4K is quite powerful.

If you want some videos for stress testing, you can try the samples from http://jell.yfish.us

Infuse on the Apple TV 4K will play everything up to ~200 mbps...assuming your network is fast enough, of course. Wink

Infuse 6 for iOS and Apple TV is now available!

I have some 4K HDR files as large as 60 GB. Infuse plays then via WiFi with no problem. It pulls the stream off from a Plex hosted computer connected to router via a cat 7 Ethernet cable. I sometimes observed around 400 mbps data rate when starting a movie and a buffer speed around 130 mbps. The buffer usually finishes way before I could even finish a movie.

My infuse can't handle 50+ GB movies after updating to tvos 13. With the same files and TV settings VLC plays perfectly

I’ve recently started ripping my 4K discs and getting 80GB files with 100mbit data rates. I know infuse can handle it and I have a gigE network and latest AppleTV but occasionally I’m getting buffering. Is there a guide for the best settings for my readynas and appletv (nfs vs smb etc etc) ?

I have found that NFS works best between my Synology NAS and my Apple TV 4K and I can play 4K movies over 60G in size with no problems
