Default Problems with Video and Skype - 02-12-2009, 10:13 PM

I'm surprised I haven't seen this posted yet...

I have an Atom Processor 1.6 Ghz, 533MHz, 1GB DDR2 Mini 12.

First of all, the system CAN'T HANDLE HD videos. Secondly, when I full screen video chat with anyone on Skype, the entire screen flickers a lot. Is anyone else having this problem??

Ive been using my mini 12 to run HD video since December without issue (only 720p obviously due to the resolution restraints).

Havnt tried skype, but streaming video is occasionally flickery, but I wouldnt say its all the time, maybe 1/10 which I would put down to net bandwidth possibly.

I will try skype video tonight and post the results, but if you are having constant issues like youve described, there could be a larger issue with your unit.

I can confirm I too get flickery vertical ghosting on Skype video. Normal 720p/SD does not ghost (though 720p playback frame jumps since it does not look like the mini can decode HD video smoothly)
