Latest version of Skype for Windows

I am not happy with the current version of Skype - the video call picture is now landscape which makes it very difficult for us deaf people to communicate with each other by sign language.  Can we not get the old one back?  My boyfriend and I chat on Skype every night and we both are not happy about this layout as it hampers our ability to communicate by sign language visually.

You can try to revert to the previous Skype version using this msi-installer:


Version 6.2 does not have the feature to always force video to wide screen format (16:9).
