Why are meeting recordings so large? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm recording meetings between 4-6 parties.  We sit in a conference room with a dedicated Skype Polycom device (panaromic?), and a handful of attendees in other locations log on using Skype for Business, or as guests with the web client.  I am recording the meetings that are around 1.5 hours.  The recordings are 500mb - 600mb, which seems rather large to me, especially since when I play the mp4 using Win Media Player, the video portion of the meeting is just a white panel that says "at this point in the meeting, no one was presenting or sharing video".  Why doesn't the recording show the panaromic shot, or some of the individual webcam shots?  And since it doesn't, it's basically audio only, so why is the recording so large?  

    I do occasionally share my desktop during the meetings, and my screen does show in the video, but participants webcams, nor the panaromic ever are.  :\
