rearrange video pane/window in Teams
ability to rearrange the speaker & participants videos in the window. you should be able to move the video pane to the top of the screen
Please add this feature urgently! The need is obvious and the implementation seems basic and straightforward.
please let me move the participants video windows to the top of the screen so it doesn't look like i have my eyes closed all the time.

Having the ability to move the video to the top (near the camera) is crucial for Teams to compete with other video conferencing options.

change the video from bottom to top
This is urgent!

This is urgently needed. Virtual meetings are not going away soon.
As many others have said, cameras on laptops and webcams are usually at the top of the screen and I definitely spend 80% of a presentation looking at the person talking. Would be much more comfortable to be able to have the video bar at the top of the screen.
It is just amazing, people are begging and for a good reason! Hello, anybody?

I am getting neck strain because of needing to look down all the time.

This is pointless. MS doesn’t hear us.
How hard can this be?

Also would like to put on the side, for optimize for wide-screens, like 21:9. They have more space on the side, than in the hight.
Fully agree! If the participants videos are on the top, my eyes look almost in direction of the camera...
I am using TEAMS for hours and it is painfull to my neck and impolite to the others, who are feelilng as not being looked at. Please fix it!
And it is ridiculous, that you want to have the permit to junk mail me, only to be allowed to be giving my user feedback, which is a curtousy from my side.
I used Teams for the first time today and don’t want to use it again until this gets fixed. Please fix this!

Please! typically video camera lays on the top of the monitor, if bar is fixed to the bottom you show the feel that you are not looking to the talker or not paying attention. make if movable or floating. Thanks!
The video gallery should be moveable. In fact, nothing should be fixed in-place. That's just not how things work for actual users. I don't care nearly as much about sitting "side-by-side" in Together Mode as I do about looking at the camera. The fatigue caused by not making (fake) eye contact is one of many reasons people feel exhausted.

Agree, urgent change needed to move the self view to the top.
Also....how about intelligent resizing & rearranging of other participants' views, as in Zoom. I just had a conversation with 2 colleagues were I was stuck with 2 columns x 1 row of views. I wanted to reduce the window so I could see both participants in 1 column x 2 rows. Not possible.
Again, how hard can it be?

Please move video to the top or allow customisation. Also allow rearranging of video order and allow self view to be switched off.
This could have more detail but the basic argument is that everyone looks at whom they are speaking with and since they are at the bottom and laptops / cams are at the top people appear with their eyes closed. This is just bad design, cameras are on top, place video bar on top.
