Why can't I control where my video screen is positioned (and size)?

Do not like that my video preview now 'snaps' to a corner. Would like to center this (as pervious) under my camera. This enables me to see what's in view and keep my eyes focused centered. All day callers have been telling me I keep looking off screen (yes, because I am distracted by my preview). Is this a bug or a feature removed?

 

I am hoping it is not a feature removed. :happy:

I totally agree. Wish we could have this feature changed. Does anyone from Skype actually read these?

I agree. Updated Skype to version 5.6 last week and now my video will only 'snap' to the corners, whereas before I could position it wherever I liked.

 

Please, please, please can we have this feature back - it was one of the main differentiators from the Windows version.

 

Thanks :happy:
