    I went to a concert last night, and recorded a couple of songs. I've done that before, with WP 8.1 on my Lumia Icon. They sounded and looked very good.

    This time, the recording (using the Camera app - not Lumia Camera), looked good, but the sound was horrible and only in mono. I asked this in the Lumia Icon W10M mobile thread, and someone else confirmed that his Icon also records in mono. Can someone else with Windows 10 Mobile Build 10581 on another model verify that the Camera app in Windows 10 Mobile it only records in mono??

    That seems absolutely insane, so I can only assume it's a bug. Also, the Camera app, as opposed to Lumia Camera (which no longer opens!) doesn't have the audio adjustment settings (surround, bass cutoff).

    If for some reason the videos are only recorded in mono sound (after the Icon was specifically designed to record great audio no less!), that seems like a bug they can't have in the official release.

    1 - Lumia Camera was cancelled by MS, now there's Windows Camera

    2 - How many mics have your Phone? Did you look in settings everywhere?

    1. I know, that bugs me. Lumia Camera was better, imo.

    2. The Icon/930 has 4 mics. In WP8.1 it recorded in excellent stereo/surround. I've tried to find settings for this, but haven't found any.

    Do you know of any settings? Have you tried recording and seen if it records in mono on your phone? That's what I would like to know.

    I searched before I posted, and found nothing. What was it you read about? Can you help me out and record a short video clip on your W10M phone and see if it recorded in mono?

    Yeah, there's an audio setting there, but only for playback, nothing for recording. Thanks though.

    Your English is fine.
    Thanks, and I'm glad it's not just the Icon (since it's a tiny percentage of phones) but also bummed your phone has the same problem!
    This seems like such a weird bug that I don't understand how we can be this close to release and not have this working. It was one of the reasons I liked the Icon, the audio recording was great.

    Can more people chime in and see if this is across the board? Anyone know if this has been mentioned elsewhere? I haven't heard anything about it before!

    I agree ! Not sure why msft would move us to an inferior video recording mode when lumia camera 5 worked awesomely when recording.

    Lumia 930 here. There's indeed no stereo/dolby surround option in Windows 10 Mobile :/
    And as one (or two) of my mics are defect, I even don't have sound at all when recording in mono.

    I'm desperately waiting for stereo to come back. It worked well on 8.1 using Lumia Camera...

    Can a 950/XL user comment if their phones support stereo/surround video recording?

    L640 here, also getting mono audio with Camera or Voice Recorder but stereo with Perfect Recorder.

    There must be some bug or missing setting to adjust audio options.

    I'm also using 930. Having the same issue when taking video.
    Windows Camera did not give us any option for Surround when taking video unlike in Lumia Camera....

    I hope they Fix this issue.

    Holy cow, that's a HUGE bug. Those premium phones are suppsed to do better than just stereo even. They're supposed to do full 5.1 dolby surround sound recording with videos. Stereo is the bare minimum. They're also supposed to have the Nokia mic codec that prevents ANY clipping and ensures flawless audio.

    If my 1520 were still around I'd be PISSED.

    I have Lumia 1020 and I can confirm that after updating to dev preview 586 WP10 update, my phone is also recording videos with mono sound. I tried all the camera apps but none works for stereo. This is a huge bug indeed in WP10 and I hope they will fix it in final release of Lumia 1020 WP10.

    If a fix comes at all, it will probably need to be implemented as part of a firmware upgrade, which means it may need to wait until the official releases.

    In video recording settings switch to the highest resolution and it should record in stereo. It works for my L1520 with 10586.63.
