My boss would like to have all participants in meeting with disabled video?   The people outside our org are showing up with video.  His statement:

 

"I don't want to see any faces and don't want anybody else to see any faces. None of our meeting should have any video capabilities activated and all should default to no video permitted."


In our Global (Org-wide default) I turned off  'Allow Cloud Recording'  and 'Allow IP Recording'.

 

Is this possible?

Solution
Hello, yes. You can use the "video settings" in the meeting policy. The ones you've already configured is only about recording.

These are the PowerShell options but can also be set using Teams admin center as shown in the link at the bottom.

-AllowIPVideo
Determines whether video is enabled in a user's meetings or calls. Set this to TRUE to allow the user to share their video. Set this to FALSE to prohibit the user from sharing their video.

-IPVideoMode
Determines whether video can be turned on in meetings and group calls. Set this to ENABLEDOUTGOINGINCOMING to allow outgoing and incoming video in the meeting. Set this to DISABLED to prohibit outgoing and incoming video in the meeting.

You can read more about it here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/meeting-policies-in-teams#mode-for-ip-video and also see which policy takes precedence.
Thanks for reply. I used Powershell to set parameters.

Set-CsTeamsMeetingPolicy -AllowIPVideo $false -IPVideoMode disabled

I still haven't heard back from my boss if this worked. I'll update post once I hear back.
