Infuse 2.3 for iOS (teaser 007)

One of the best iOS media players around, Infuse by jailbreak developer FireCore of the aTV Flash Black fame, has received a major updated today that enables support for UPnP and DLNA  media streaming protocols which allows the software to stream, download and sync media residing on compatible UPnP/DLNA device such as XBMC, Plex, WMC, PS3 Media Server and more.

The release includes a plethora of other new features and improvements such as half a dozen new gesture controls, the continuous playback feature, improved streaming for certain NAS devices and a bunch of user interface tweaks.

The new Infuse 2.3 is available free in the App Store, with an optional in-app purchase to unlock advanced features like AirPlay subtitle streaming, support for additional video formats and more…

Connecting to an UPnP/DLNA is much like connecting to a regular network share: you can browse the media files, tap the cloud icon to download individual media files to your iPhone or iPad or just tap the item name to start streaming right away.

    There any way to get some apps to work with chromecast? Or it that something that has to go through google first?

    • Montgomery Tyler

      thats what i want to know.

    • CantStandYa

      Plex works with Chromecast.

      AFAIK all chromecast apps have to go through the Internet as opposed to the local network. If I’m correct in saying this developers need some pretty kick-ass server power in order to implement chrome cast support properly…

    Hope this works well. uPNP/DLNA client apps on iOS have been so terrible, every last one I’ve tried. Including ones I’d expect to be solid like VLC for iOS.

    EDIT: Hold up. Wtf. I have to pay $7 to upgrade and THEN I can find out if this handles steaming video as shitty as all the other 100 players? That’s a big wager. At least give me like 10 tries or let me stream 1 video per folder. I am not paying $7 before I can even see how it handles steaming content from DLNA servers. That’s bunk.
