"you can observe it better when you are watching the videos"
I think you have to answer that with "yes and no"

Yes - in that you can watch and re-watch, use slow motion and stop-frame

No - in that you only see what's in the recording and thus may not be exposed to the context, reactions off-camera.

Typically the camera(s) are focused on the speakers face or you may get everyone's headshot. With a face-to-face meeting you get to scan the room, read the body language of participants and provide your own. In the case where you get a camera person scanning, you get what they think is relevant which may be bias, uninformed or directed.

Obviously I am not a fan of on-line meetings, recorded or otherwise. Truth be said, I'm not a fan of meetings in general. I think there are too many, too long and poorly run.
Dear Peter
Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us

In my opinion, meetings are important to align team members, share ideas and solutions, discover new options

Depends on how they are conducted

We agree that many meetings are held whose results are unique and simply wasting time

It is possible to observe the sign language of all participants in an online meeting with video
Recording meetings aren't allowed in my organization for security, privacy and other reasons.

Dear Luis,

In some situations save meetings can make sense, nevertheless i prefer not make use of that option.
I see it more useful to take strategic notes of the meeting, almost every meeting platform allow that feature, it's more advantageous for me by 3 reasons:

1 - I can synthesize the content of the meeting in a scheme or sentences in one page, providing fast access.
2 - Save time in reviewing the meeting videos, some can be pretty long and boring.
3 - There is a reason that is more important than every others, in Europe we have General Data Protection Regulation that when a
employee leaves the company can demand that all his data to be deleted under the right policy to oblivion, this would force you to spend a lot of resources to erase your image and interventions at the meeting or delete the entire meeting.

Most of the time its for future reference, if there is conflict then recorded meeting will help solving the conflict. Definitely, it helps any team member, stakeholder, sponsor, customer, end user who for any reason not able to attend the meeting can listen to recorded meeting and make sure they are on same page
