Using Skype on mac min with Lion. I used to be able to drag my video window and make it larger but now it's small and seems to be without any means of adjustment.

I just updated to the newest version of Skype on my mac too and I noticed this problem which is incredibly annoying because I've been able to resize my own pip window to the size I wanted using whatever older version I had before. I've also been able to position my own pip window wherever I wanted. In the new version it only stays in the upper left corner. I DO NOT LIKE THIS ONE LITTLE BIT!!! PLEASE PLEASE FIX IT ASAP! Thank you.

Clicking on your picture-in-picture once will toggle it between small and very tiny.  If it's already very tiny clicking once will toggle it to small.


There's no other way to adjust the size of the PIP in the current version.  This is a bug (or maybe a bug by design).  There's a topic about it on the Skype developers' Jira forum.  Feel free to add a comment there is you want to:

I'm also having this problem, in Skype for Windows. My picture of myself is so tiny I can barely see it, let alone tell whether I have the camera pointed at what I'm trying to show my contacts. Does anyone know whether there are any plans to fix this, and in what version?
