  12. 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

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  18. Theme change problem

    Hello,

    The Skype theme does not change when I select the accessible theme and change it from the system preferences of my Mac. On the other hand if I choose the option “Use the system parameter” it works:
    https://youtu.be/fhWhKrpYxyQ

    Could you correct this problem as soon as possible please?

    Thank you in advance for your reply.

  19. Please re-add the ability to change Skype's ports!!

    Why on earth did Skype engineers think that removing the option to change Skype's ports was a good idea. This used to be an option in previous versions. We can no longer run the current version of Skype (8.x.x) on our systems b/c of port 443 being a port conflict.
