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.

Why is my HoloLens recording at 480? It used to record at 720.

Yes, it used to record video at 720. Now it's recording at 480. Seems this occurred since the big update. Not sure exactly. Can someone clarify?


  • @spinteractive,
    You should be able to reset to 720p using the 'Mixed Reality Capture' page on the Windows Device Portal.

    Note: this setting did not change on my HoloLens after taking the update.

  • Yes that should do it. Not sure why it got set back to 480. Thank you for the tip!

    What I found is that when I upload to youtube is changes it to 480 and when I upload to facebook it's 720. That's because the actual video size is 1281x 684 - just shy of 720.
