    bcastDVRuser is the built-in Game DVR that comes with Windows 10. The reason it's using up so much memory is that it's for some reason set to automatically record the game in the background. To fix it, just go to Settings>Gaming>Game DVR and disable Record in the background while I’m playing a game.
