How to Enable or Disable Video Input in Windows Sandbox in Windows 10

Windows Sandbox provides a lightweight desktop environment to safely run applications in isolation. Software installed inside the Windows Sandbox environment remains “sandboxed” and runs separately from the host machine.

A sandbox is temporary. When it’s closed, all the software and files and the state are deleted. You get a brand-new instance of the sandbox every time you open the application.

Starting with Windows 10 build 20161, a new group policy setting was added that enables or disables video input to the Sandbox.

If you enable this policy setting, video input is enabled in Windows Sandbox.

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, video input is disabled in Windows Sandbox. Applications using video input may not function properly in Windows Sandbox.

This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable video input in Windows Sandbox for all users in Windows 10.

How to Enable AV1 Video Support on YouTube

AOMedia Video 1 (AV1) is an open, royalty-free video coding format designed for video transmissions over the Internet. It is being developed by the Alliance for Open Media (AOMedia), a consortium of firms from the semiconductor industry, video on demand providers, and web browser developers, founded in 2015. The AV1 bitstream specification includes a reference video codec.

The AV1 video codec provides advanced compression, bringing you smoother streaming in HD and data savings for more video on the go.

YouTube has published an AV1 Beta launch playlist of the first videos to receive YouTube’s AV1 transcodes. These transcodes are encoded at a very high bitrate for decoder performance testing.

Because it is new, streaming AV1 in HD requires a powerful computer, and only some videos have AV1 available at this time.

This tutorial will show you how to enable AV1 video support on YouTube for your account in Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.

How to Record Video in Windows Mixed Reality in Windows 10

Mixed reality blends real-world and virtual content into hybrid environments where physical and digital objects coexist and interact.

Mixed reality capture (MRC) lets you capture your mixed reality experience as either a photograph or a video. This lets you share the experience with others by allowing them to see the holograms as you see them. Such videos and photos are from a first-person point of view.

Mixed reality capture videos are recorded with 1408x792px (HoloLens) or 1632x918px (Immersive headsets) resolution and 48kHz Stereo, and saved as a .mp4 file to your Camera Roll folder (C:\Users\\Pictures\Camera Roll).

Videos have a maximum length of five minutes.

This tutorial will show you how to record video while in Windows Mixed Reality using an immersive headset in Windows 10.
