Skype 2.1 webcam

Postby manny » Sat Nov 28, 2009 11:02 pm

I was gratefully surprised when I opened Skype in Linux Mint 8 and the web-cam worked...however in a mirror effect; what it should be right displayed left. In Ubuntu 9.10 the only way that I was able to run the cam on Skype was running it with a script, however it displayed the picture properly. Does any one have the same problem or knows how to correct it? My webcam is a V4l1 type.

Welcome to Mint
Is there "flip the image" option in Skype? I have not used Skype for a while and never with a webcam
More facts are needed
