Please add support for Mobile (Your platform)


I am glad to see Microsoft adding additional codecs! A lot of my videos used Vorbis for audio, so now they finally play correctly in the Movies & TV app. Hoping they will add h.265 (hevc) next!

Great Extension! Add more formats please!😃

This is a great addition for Windows! I hope more formats are coming in the future!!

No such thing as 16299 on mobile

Bring mobile builds up to date with other windows core products, release 16299 for mobile.

Also makes WebM work in <video> elements!

In addition to the Ogg codecs, this gets WebM video working in regular <video> elements on sites like Wikipedia that prefer WebM over MP4. Would love this to be rolled into the standard install!

Great to see this supported

Of all the crap that is preloaded onto Windows 10 you would think this would be one of those apps. Don't really see a reason this needs to be a separate thing, should be integrated into the OS
