  1. Want to sideload Microsoft store MPEG2 extension from 1703 on 1607


    Hi,

    I have a copy of the MPEG2 extension from the Windows Store I got from the %windowsapps% folder of a computer running 1703. It's only available in the 1703 store.

    I have another computer running 1607 LTSB I'd like to sideload it on - I tried copying it to the %windowsapps% folder but it doesn't seem to recognize it automatically.

    Does anyone know what kind of finagling I need to do to get the Windows Store to see the files? I saw a tutorial on sideloading store apps using an .appx package, but the extension has no .appx file (presumably because it's not an application - just an extension)...

    Any help or ideas would be very much appreciated. Trying to realize dream of having DRM copy-once channel support for HDHomeRun DVR software which is only available from Store on Windows 10 (sniff!) - and requires MPEG2 extension from 1703 - on my beloved 1607 LTSB machines ... I'm hoping I don't have to wait until 2019 for the next LTSB upgrade just for that!

    Thanks!
    Avery

  2. Win 10 Twitter app video/gif not playing

    Try installing the Microsoft-provided "MPEG2 Video Extension" from the Windows 10 App Store. Extends the video formats that Windows can play.

    Win 10 Twitter app video/gif not playing

    Finally I got Twitter video's working.

    When I tried the above suggestion the "Install" button for the app was grayed out but a message gave me an option to download the "Windows 10 Fall Creators Update". I clicked on that and a file downloaded and I ran it and after about 90 minutes my PC was
    upgraded and now Twitter video's are working.

    Just out of curiosity I went back to the Windows 10 App Store and searched for the "MPEG2 Video Extension". This time the "Install" button was highlighted but since my Twitter Video's are now working I didn't install it.
