    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.
