    Question Skype: webcam is upside down

    My webcam is upside down in Skype, what can I do to change that?

    Stand on your head when using the computer?

    Seriously, isn't there some way to physically turn the webcam 180 degrees or some switch on it to flip the image vertically? I doubt if this is a Skype issue.

    No, it's a built-in webcam in my N10J. I think it's not a Skype issue, but is there a way to rotate it in the Skype settings or somewhere else?

    Not that I'm aware of, but I haven't looked for it before.

    uvcvideo camera most likely. I just went through this on my laptop, had to download the latest uvcvideo and apply a patch to it, then copy the uvcvideo.ko file to two locations.

    My camera is now no longer flipped upside down.

    I will post back with links to the patch shortly.
