Meeting Record Quality is low
The meeting record quality is worse than the actual realtime video. For screen share video's this can make somethings difficult to read due to the blocky-ness of the recording.

Just recorded a meeting for the whole company. The video is specifically for people who missed the meeting.
But it has a horrible frame rate of 8 fps. Really useless!
I have experienced the same issue today. the video of the meeting was very clear as per attendee feedback. but when we saw the saved video its was of much lower quality and cracking,
Still looking for better alternatives. Even zoom records much better than Teams.
Our management is constantly disappointed by the poor quality recordings. I'm afraid that discussions are starting on alternative platforms.
I recorded some tutorials for my staff and text is barely legible, 5 frames per second.
Com guys, get your act together!
Is MS Teams video recording still limited to 720p?
I can get 1080p, but the frame rate is always at 8fps. Pretty terrible when there is motion that needs to be depicted.

This prevents my 25,000+ people higher education organisation from using Teams. We will not use this until this problem is fixed.
I would like to use Teams for teaching but the video quality is not as good as other platforms so I vote for a fix. Would be grateful if you let me know when a fix is in the works.
1280*720 recordings are simply not good enough for webinars, blurry fonts. Microsoft, please provide option for FullHD recordings in Teams meetings and live events.

I'm having the same problem. Resolution seems OK on the recording but the frame rate is really poor.
I bought a Logitech C920s HD Pro and are getting blurry video in Teams. In other conferencing tools, like Zoom or Skype I'm getting clear picture quality. Pls. fix this!
****** and shameful webcam-video quality for a big enterprise like Microsoft.

I had to stop relying on recording in teams and now just use third party apps to capture screen then publish to third party streaming services. So much for "enterprise" grade BS!

I have bought a new 1080p to improve quality. It is superb in Zoom and Whereby but lousy in Teams and Skype.

I have the same problem - very low video quality of recorded screenshares 100% of the time, even after time passes, even in the downloaded mp4. GoToMeeting's screenshare recordings are crystal clear and high-rez. Truly amazing that MS hasn't yet fixed such a major problem.
One interesting note: it seems like the larger and higher-rez the screen of the presenter doing the recording, the more blurry the resulting video is. Likewise, the smaller/lower-rez the screen of the resulting video, the higher the quality of the video.

The sensible option is, surely, to record participants video locally and upload them asynchronously, after the meeting ends, rather than relying on the stability of their real-time internet connection. At the very least this needs to be an option.
The video quality is awful. It would be nice to create webinars and other how to videos, but if I share my screen in the recording it comes out so blurry in the video. Please fix!
AWFUL video and audio quality.
It may be tuning the codec they're using.
We had a series of video meetings that were recorded to share with a client. They took almost up 3gb disk space and the.
Microsoft should be all over getting a basic down.
I think recordings are still not better even in 2020. I made a simple test by recording a minute and trying to play it back. A previous comment here suggested to give it time to become better quality (Few hours) but even reviewing it today makes no difference, it's still the same bad file...
We have other options in our group and this will put me off TEAMS and right back into Circuit I think.
