Lync 2013 brings H264 video capability to users everywhere. A question users might ask: What video resolution is my my capable of? For technical people, Jeff Schertz has written an excellent article on how to determine the video capability of a PC.
I’ve taken the data Microsoft provides to determine Lync video requirements along with Jeff Schertz’ excellent blog on Lync 2013 HD video and built a tool lets anyone, regardless of technical ability, to determine the video capability of a PC with as little as 1 click.
I am now on a kick testing various PC’s I meet for video capability and am frankly surprised: You can’t ignore PC specs related to the video experience of your users.

Note: Currently BETA, so I especially welcome feedback here in comment or on Technet. I’d be glad if you double check reported results.
