Changes in the HEVCVideoExtensions from version 1.0.21822.0 to 1.0.2276.0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Sometime last week, the windows store appears to have pushed an update to the HEVC decoder that has caused our application that uses it to stop playback after 7 minutes.  Media foundation using MFTrace is reporting an OutOfMemory.  Watching using any memory profiler backs and supports this.  Memory keeps climbing until our 32 bit app hits roughly 1.4 gig, then stops.

    While testing this theory 2 days ago, I had a working system that would play for hours.  As soon as I installed the HEVCDecoder under an admin account instead of my user account, it updated both, and started failing.

    I would simply uninstall the update, but I have not found a way to get an older version of something delivered through the Microsoft Store.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for posting here.

    Strictly speaking, this is not a development issue, but an issue about the Microsoft tools. And this looks more like a bug, I recommend you'd better submit a feedback in the feedback hub.

    In addition, as far as I know, the app version cannot be rolled back. You can only Disable Automatic Updates for Windows 10 Store Apps.

    Best Regards,
