Windows 10 DirectShow problem

maxim.sakhankov asked on


I don't know the correct place to post so do it here.

There is a problem with Windows 10 DirectShow: there sometimes can be an error 0x8004020d while playing the video in GraphEdit or GraphStudio. The file which is played is AVI and the problem must be in FileSource Async or AVI Splitter. However, the same error exists with other file formats. In previous versions of Windows the file played without problems.

Please let me know if you need more details or a sample file.

I have the same problem, windows 10 will choke on avi files using mjpeg codec that worked great in windows xp/7/8, and the problem is somewhere in the avi splitter since replacing that with another thrird party splitter like "LAV" or "Haali" fixes the error.

This is critical since the program i have developed, which is a video subtitling software, no longer functions correctly in windows 10 unless a third party replacement of core directshow functionality, is installed.

Note i can also provide a sample video that will enable you to recreate the error in windows 10.

How do we report this bug to Microsoft so that they will actually take notice and start fixing it? It seems that the insider preview and feedback programs doesn't lead anywhere, the bug is already posted in several of these Microsoft forums without any reaction from them.
