As far as I know this might have been caused by the Windows update dated 14 03 2017, following which I now have Windows 10 64 bit Pro Version 1607 Build 14393.953.

You are not alone. It looks like the update screwed up anything that uses the inbuilt DVD/MPEG2 decoder.
Options I've seen so far are to overwrite the DLL with old version or use LAV codecs. Trouble is that SFC could put the bad DLL back again.
