View Full Version : 'Squooshed' picture when doing SD

So last week I noticed on one of the shows we are doing (health-inn) that the broadcasted video is squeezed left and right. Everything looked right on vidblaster though. I looked and looked, and couldn't find a setting that may have changed. over the last week, all the rest of the shows did not exhibit this problem, so I forgot about it. This past monday, it happened again on the health-inn show, so I used Tom Sinclair's trick to use the streamer module to stream to FMLE, and leave the VVD to send return video to Skype. That evening breaking free did the same thing.
Well, last night in a hang out, I brought it up, and Nick Craig of radargaming.net reminded me that even though I am not doing any windows updates - due to the fact that vidblaster 2.27 (the release) had its player broken by windows updates - I did 'allow' Skype to update !! We tried it with him calling, and it was squeezing everything. Rolled back to Skype 6.0 and the problem went away.

So now, no more Skype updates either :-)
