The upgrade to Windows 10 Anniversary Update «broke» millions of webcam users
In the beginning of the month, Microsoft launched a major update for Windows 10. Update Anniversary Update, among other things, has discontinued support for the H. 264 and MJPEG formats, which according to the company, was to prevent performance issues and give some applications direct access to web-cameras.
Perhaps the way it was supposed to be the ideal, but the Microsoft engineers made a mistake somewhere. As a result, «millions» of webcam users in General have ceased to work normally. According to sources, the camera and hanging out in Skype and other similar applications. And we are talking about a variety of models, including expensive Logitech.
Microsoft knows about the problem and working on it, but expect the patch is only in September. Moreover, it will fix only the problem with the MJPEG format.
