    Yes! I often automatically shift to observe myself instead of looking the others. This feature would help!

  • Tekknofreak

    It would be a nice nice feature to turn self view on or off.

  • Heijigirl

    If you could decide if you want to turn off or on would be great.

  • Doctologist

    Please, please give us this option! Being forced to see myself is very distracting. A simple toggle to hide your local video would be very helpful.

  • thezaeron

    Please, it would make it so much easier to see my friends' faces when I have the video chat as a small window at the top of my screen in a call

  • Artymus

    a good idea, I think.

  • mockman

    I'd also love this feature. It's available in Zoom, so should totally be doable in Discord right?

  • gough

    Can we get a status update on this?
    This is a very necessary feature.

  • JLin

    I agree, or at least a way to minimize my screen more because when i want the pop up to be a small screen in the corner while I'm doing something else. I can't see the other person because my face cam is so big it covers almost everything. 

  • Olifantastic

    Using the pop-out window is currently a joke, and basically unusable as a proper "pop-out". I often use it to see people while playing games, so I want the window to be quite small. In that case however, when focussing on the other participant, my own video obstructs the view on most of incoming video.

  • PastaRat

    Would love this too! I always make the popout video very small so I can do something without having the video obscure my work too much, but then my own video takes up 40% of the other person's video. 

    Please let me hide my own cam!

    I think this is especially useful for people who multitask or just do something else while in a video call in popped out view. As I'm focusing on what I'm dong, I prefer to have the popped out window quite small, but then the video feed from my own camera covers up too much and I can barely see anything from others. Here's an image to illustrate:

    Please implement this!! If I want the pop out to be pinned in the corner of my screen, taking up as little space as necessary, the self-view is a major inconvenience.

  • Fallfall

    Bumping that up...

    We really need this feature, especially now with server video. It would be very helpful in my weekly meetups with friends!

  • the little sur

    for a certain server i'm in, it won't let me see self view, actually, but others say they can see me. there's just the disabled video icon next to my profile picture, but if i focus on myself and minimize the call/go into a text channel when im on the call, i can see myself. if anyone has a fix please let me know!

  • Rusty

    Althought it's not explicitly mentioned in by OP having an option to disable Self view in Grid View would be great too!

    I am often in a private call and the other party shares there screen as well as has video on and I would like just a side-by-side view of their feeds and not have to see my own ugly mug!

  • SarahNorthway

    I would love this! I end up staring and checking my hair and stuff the whole time otherwise.

  • Murray

    Agreed. We just held a multi-day convention and people commented it was fatiguing/distracting to see their own face for such long periods of time.

  • PaulP

    Yes please

  • Therkelsen

    Bump - We need this for watching shows with S/O online but don't wanna see your own ugly noggin

  • lrsbn

    i came here because im currently facing a bug where my video is disabled, but like all the time and i do admit liking to look at myself from time to time. and since i cant enable my own video im stuck with this bug (I already tried reinstalling and everything). Please Discord let me look at myself again. +1

  • Raziel_Sai

    PLEASE! I know this is now like almost a year old but please make this a thing.

  • AbiHarris14

    Coming back to comment on this again… I was so excited when I read the update said improvements to group video calls. I tested it out straight away and can’t believe they STILL haven’t implemented this?!?! It’s such a fundamental feature on literally every other platform you can use for calls that I can think of. I so badly want to be able to use Discord for video calls because everything else about it is better. But this one issue still trumps all the benefits of using Discord for me!!

  • CelticCaleb

    Despite the fact that it's been asked for, for a year or more, I'm going to ask that this be implemented as soon as possible because this would make the video calls on discord a million times better and I could actually make use of the pop-out and stay-on-top feature to see who I'm talking to and work at the same time, without my own video blocking their entire face

    I currently have my video disabled for myself but i have no idea how this happened and I feel like its bugged, I have my cam on for others and my little tile for my cam has the disabled video icon on it.
