Direct Play MPEG2 video on Windows app?

From looking at various FAQ sections, it seems that the Windows app will play MP2 videos natively if Windows has the Media Center pack installed... but that's not possible in Windows 10. But it does have the MPEG2 codec downloadable in the Windows Store.

Can I get the app to use it? Right now all my DVR recordings have to be transcoded and I'd really rather they weren't!

    I suppose I'll have to. Strongly dislike the UI, though.
