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

Stand on your head when using the computer? :wink:

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.
