    It would good if you could adjust the video setting whilst still viewing the picture and seeing what effect the changes are having to the image.

  7. Video Recording Settings

    HELLO there guys. Thanks for the effort. To make this super short. Please, I need to record meeting videos while only me showing. We wish to disable and enable how many people show up in the recording. Because sometimes I share my screen to show something and the txt would be so small its unreadable.

    Thanks

  10. Support floating window feature on phones that can multi-task. You can use other apps and Skype at the same time for increased productivity

    When you're on Skype, you can do other task like browse the internet, open calculator, so on, all while Skype is actively floating as a tiny window. Or the other way around. You can receive messages and calls at the same time while doing other tasks on your phone. That way, you won't miss anything on Skype

  11. Abblity to hide/not show ndi/recording banners its just painful...

    Among many things, the ability to have full-screen display feeds not this stupid float etc and hide banners is critical for juggling multiple people and making a comms monitor less cluttered and more practical.

    This is from a boradcast perspective and a mobile user one with the banner its impossible to get a full clean 16 by 9 feed to a phone.

  12. Allow Camera image to be a mirror when teaching

    It would be helpful to allow the camera to show a mirror image while I am tutoring so that when I am using the camera built into my laptop, my writing doesn't show up backwards.

  13. Disable zoom on login mask

    On macOS Catalina, if zoomed in too much the login mask disappears. I therefore see no reason for that feature.

  14. Flip/Mirror the Camera

    Like in older versions, give an option to flip the screen Horizontally and Vertically. Though you could chalk up this issue to what webcam your using, I am unable to change my webcam setting and therefore am unable to use video call without everything being reversed. Be a lot easier if I could just click off a box and flip how I need to.

  17. Why can't I leave the preview?!

    According to the FAQ there should be a "leave preview" button in the settings.. In the current Skype Preview however there is no such button..
