Select Camera resolution 4K, 1080p, 720p, 480p - Settings
Select camera resolution for video call in the Teams app. Settings for 4K, 1080p Full HD. 720p HD, 480p with reference/ information of maximum bandwidth required per each resolution. Microsoft Surface Hub to be able manage this resolution with policy applied from Azure - Intune.
Brand new webcam, and all anyone can tell me is it looks like a blurry mess. Only in Teams though.
Teams is behind most other video collaboration products in this area. Web cameras are moving to 1080P (and many of us are using DSLRs as webcams for even better quality) & home internet speeds of 1Gb/s are increasing.
Microsoft knows more about hardware than any company--put that knowledge to use!

Want this :)
It's terribly annoying when trying to show highres video (ie 1080p) and all is blurry. No warning message. Essential info lost.

Now that 4k monitors and cameras are the new "normal" for professionals, the resolution supported in Teams is heavily limiting and seems really from the 1990s.
We also need to be able to share 4k screen content when working together. Our team is so hindered by this.

I'm using a visualizer and the resolution choice effects zoom level. Teams picks 0.3 Mega pixels rendering the output useless :(
like the idea, as I have a 4k cam and I do not know if it is using this resolution or 640x320 by default ^^
Many of my co-workers are using 4K monitors, have 4K Logitech cameras, powerful multi-core laptops, and have 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps Internet access. Our company of about 2,00 employees has multiple 10 Gbps Internet access circuits from multiple ISPs.
Having 4K video conferencing would enhance our team building, meetings, and more.
Can a camera putting 480p through a Elgato display at 1080p on the web?
Even on zoom you can disable hd video. Settings in the windows camera app works also perfectly fine for me, but it don't affects the skype or teams camera settings. Please put the camera app setings for video also in teams, plus including a rotation function.

In our country, the internet bandwitdh is very limited and most cameras are 720p, so it would be great for us to be able to choose.
Definitely need to be able to select resolution to reduce bandwidth consumption, prevent audio and video freezing / failing, dropped calls, etc.
This would be cool if it can be controlled within the admin MS Teams admin center.

In MS's infinite wisdom, Teams lost all media controls, sans device selection, that were available in SFB.
While I think that each application should have it's own controls for AUDIO and VIDEO, I can see that it's reasonable to push this to the OS centrally. If this is the direction Teams should be able to directly open both the AUDIO and VIDEO config in Window's settings from the Team => Device Settings. Furthermore, it is probably appropriate to have a Profile tool to save criteria, as I can easily see wanting the ability to have different settings for different tools.
It's not clear today of the Windows 10 Camera App controls my Teams camera.
Please do this NOW!!
We're using the Live Event very often to present for hundreds of people and we save and keep the recording for training new people in the future. But the videos are poor quality, washed out and almost out of focus. It is really obvious that the bitrate is reduced A LOT. The video is almost unuseable.
Please fix this!

I feel Teams doesn't use my webcam's complete resolution and optimal frame speed. Would be better if there is a setting where I can see how much resolution it is receiving and uploading my video, plus a way to lower or raise my resolution depending on my bandwidth.

Yes! Need to be able to scale down resolution and reduce bandwidth usage.
I gues this could also solve the problem in our case with Magewell Pro HDMI capture card. We couldnt get correct video stream to Teams desktop app. Luckily we solved this with magewell registry settings by limiting/fixing resolution to 1080p: http://www.magewell.com/kb/001050030/detail
Would love this feature as well as while I have high bandwidth, I'm using a cellular-based internet modem right now which gets really expensive past a certain usage amount, so I'm trying to regulate usage.
