Video missing in release build from visual studio 2015

i have been having problems with video in the release builds of visual studio 2015 projects and of0.9.8.
the videos run fine in the debug builds, but are completely missing in the release build.
however, videos play in both debug and release builds of the example files i’ve tested.

for instance, the videoPLayerExample does what it should in debug and release.
if i create a new project using the project generator and then copy and paste the code from the videoPlayerExample (and the bin/data directory), the video plays in debug build, but is once again missing in the release build.

can you open an issue on github?

Here is the issue for reference
