Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

While streaming from Hololens the resolution on the glasses decrease

Hello Holo developers,

i would like to know if it is possible to have control over the displayed resolution on Hololens while streaming?
Currently tried using the Microsoft Hololens Companion app from the Windows Store and the Device Portal page, with both of them the streaming resolution was automatically decreased. As i understand it's being done to keep the Hololens perform better, but in a case where the original picture quality inside Hololens is essential, can that be changed?



  • @Janis I am not sure whether it's possible to control this via an API, but I've noticed that the resolution is only decreased in the right display while using Mixed Reality Capture, the left eye still showing graphics at the original resolution.
