Applications using directshow crash after Windows update KB4013429 - Microsoft DTV-DVD Video Decoder

We just had 2 customers calling because one of our programs is crashing when trying to play .mp4 files. They both updated windows yesterday night.

After investigating, this is the filter responsible:

Microsoft DTV-DVD Video Decoder
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\msmpeg2vdec.dll
{212690FB-83E5-4526-8FD7-74478B7939CD}
Using GraphStudioNext and trying to render any .mp4 file with logging enabled shows that this filter is the last one directshow tries to automatically load before crashing.
Even trying to manually add that filter to an empty graph makes the program crash.

Renaming that file to something else avoids the crash.

The file is protected by TrustedInstaller, so you will have to take ownership of that and then give yourself permissions to rename it

What I have done was to uninstall KB4013429. (https://www.codecguide.com/)

My VisualSubSync was also crashing when trying to open mp4 videos. I did what you told and it worked like a charm. Thank you, sir!

See link below from Microsoft support website, probably the same bug. (scroll down to the 'known issues' at the bottom about DVD player and also mpeg-2 libraries now crashing 3rd party apps)

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4013429/windows-10-update-kb4013429

This exact same (Microsoft DTV-DVD Video Decoder crash) has broken the App which I run support for.  I.e. importing .mov or .mp4 video files into it now crashes as it uses the Microsoft DTV-DVD Video Decoder filter via DirectShow to decode the h264 video

https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-update/microsoft-dtv-dvd-video-decoder-now-crashes-since/21c5edf1-6582-4769-bfb1-76ed4be7b4ce

Also I find that my PC with this update, no longer plays .mpg files in Windows Media player of Film and TV player, both just crash.

Also I don't think it effects all systems, My PC which was updated from Windows 7 to Windows 10, I think maybe a factor.

Hope this of help


In case you do not know, Microsoft have released an update (KB4015438) which now fixes this Microsoft DTV-DVD Video Decoder issue (and their DVD player app).

Jolly good

Thanks
