Set Skype for Business to Record Meetings at 1080p and 30 FPS

Published 13/04/2018 - 0 Comments

An old tip, but one that I needed reminding of. By default Skype for Business clients record meetings, content and video at 15fps and 720p. This gives you a feel of the video and content, but can feel a bit “jerky” for video.

Example of a 15 fps SfB client recording:

You can up the resolution in Skype for Business client options,

However, to change the fps to 30 you need to change the following registry key:

For Skype for Business 2016 clients:

\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Lync\Recording

For Lync 2013 / Skype for Business 2015 clients

\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Lync\Recording

You will then get recordings in 30 fps:

This does mean bigger file sizes and longer encoding, so you should consider that trade off.
