the BDP9700 (and all other BDPs from Philips) only works with the Freetalk Skype camera. This camera support HD video up to 720p (16:9 aspect ratio).

It is not possible to send or receive HD video calls on BDP9700 with Freetalk Skype camera - only QVGA is possible. Also the video aspect ratio is always 4:3.

If a person is sharing his windows desktop (which is then visible on the TV), the resolution received on BDP9700 is 720p with 16:9 aspect ratio.

Can somebody confirm?

Test environment: BDP9700/12, Freetalk Skype camera, Firmware 4.22, MCU 0x19
