MJPG encoded media type is not available for USB/UVC cameras after Windows 10 version 1607 (OS Build 14393.10 anniversary) update

 

On August 2nd, 2016, Microsoft released the Anniversary Update for Windows 10 and when the bits arrived on computers around the globe, it brought with it new features and also broke USB cameras for millions of consumers. If your USB camera has stopped functioning since the release of the Anniversary update, you are not alone but the good news is a fix is available from Microsoft now.

Microsoft made a significant change with the release of Windows 10 and support for USB cameras that is causing serious problems for not only consumers but also the enterprise. The problem is that after installing the update, Windows no longer allows USB cameras to use MJPEG or H264 encoded streams and is only allowing YUY2 encoding.

Why did the company remove these options? The short answer is that with the Anniversary update there are new scenarios for applications to be able to access the USB camera and the MJPEG or H264 encoding processes could have resulted in duplication of encoding the stream (poor performance) so the company limited the input methods to stop this from happening.

Solution:

Microsoft has released an update KB3194496 in September 2016, which will be installed automatically on your PC through Windows Update. This update will fix the issue of  MJPG encoded media type for UCV cameras.

So, please ensure your Windows 10 PC is updated with latest updates from Microsoft, especially the update KB3194496, which meant for fixing the problem mentioned above.
