Bring back Camera settings (specifically light adjustments)
Like the previous version, hopefully we can also adjust the camera's lighting and other camera options.
MAYBE STILL NOT FIXED. Concerning saving Skype video settings and the recent update fix I initially thought this now worked, but having just started my notebook & opened Skype my previous settings had disappeared. SO STILL NOT FIXED.
There is ALSO A HIDDEN SCREEN WINDOW ISSUE. With the Settings / Video & Audio screen open the camera image is visible, however when I select the Webcam Settings button the image adjustment screen appears and the video image disappears from view. In order to get both the image window and the Webcam Settings window onscreen together I have to go to the Task Bar and minimize the main screen and then move it across in order to gain access to the hidden Webcam Settings screen. BOTH THE IMAGE SCREEN AND THE WEBCAM SETTINGS IMAGE CONTROLS WINDOWS SHOULD BOTH STAY AT THE FRONT, PREFERABLY ONE TO THE LEFT & THE OTHER TO THE RIGHT SO THAT BOTH WINDOWS ARE CLEARLY VISIBLE. I suspect most people would struggle and waste time adjusting the Webcam Settings.
Hi folks - I think it would make sense for you to be able to make modifications to your camera settings - i.e. zoom, positioning, etc. with a more intuitive interface either whilst you're in a call or preparing for a call. At the moment to go to the WebCam settings you get presented with a 2000's era Windows settings screen that removes the current camera image, and you need to guess what your adjustments are doing to your image. Having a nice intuitive "zoom in/out" lever that modifies your image in front of your eyes as you're on a call would be so convenient.
Please allow mirror image the camera to allow me to share written text the right way !!
since the split view ain't coming to Skype for desktop I hope this is fixed SOOOON!!!
I also want this feature to Skype for Windows 10 app! Because of this, I have to use Skype for Windows (desktop app) instead. I don't want to.
If this feature will be available also to the Windows 10 app, I will move to use that instead using desktop app.

The best would be doing all video handling via GStreamer, so reduce the amount of crap code within Skype and let users configure everything from a central place (gstreamer config)
