Is there some setting that will make camera better resolution on HP ENVY 32?

HP Recommended
HP Envy 32
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The desktop display is high resolution and the camera app shows 2560x1440, but the video shows 1440p 16:9 30fps, but the camera app shows a picture that looks fuzzy when the app is maximized.

 

And when I used Skype with a buddy, he commented that the video looked like 720 or lower.  And the network speed from Spectrum is 100Mbps download and 10Mbs upload.

 

Any suggestions for improving how it looks?

 

I also noticed that this new computer has 2 graphic cards, an Intel on-board and an Nvidia geForce GTX 1650.  Task manager shows the Intel getting the activity.  Should I make the Nvidia the default and not let it choose "automatically" which to use?

 

And lastly, I had turned on HDR.  Does that have any effect on resolution?

The Camera is supposedly a 5 megapixel camera for the Envy 32 AIO according to the specifications.  However the Camera App only goes to 3.7 megapixel.  How do we get to fully utilize this camera?

@mtiede @Phoenix_123

Thank you for posting on HP Support Community.

 

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, 

  • Make sure your video recording environment has good lighting.

  • Change the image quality, brightness, contrast, and other adjustments in the webcam software.

To resolve problems with choppy playback, take the following actions:

  • Reduce the size of the video image in the webcam software.

  • Use a high-speed Internet connection.

  • Do not use other high-speed USB devices while using the webcam.

To troubleshoot other video quality problems, refer to one of the following HP support documents:

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.

I was already familiar with lighting and camera controls.  Lighting was enough for previous computer's camera.  (I've done video camera stuff since 1981 🙂 )

 

You raise another question for me.  What is it doing with facial tracking?  It doesn't zoom in on me as far as I can tell.  Why would it otherwise care where my face is?

Thanks but no thanks.  In this era of scammers, I don't let ANYONE remote into my PC.
