All right. I searched for your camera and issue and found some things worth looking at. Most were quite old so who knows what would work. But...

First: [HOW-TO] Upside-down image from UVC webcam <--Seems too complicated.

Next: UVC webcam picture upside down on Asus x71sl laptop <--Next to last post refers to:

Add the PPA (and surprisingly it's still maintained): v4l-utils Development

Good luck, and hope that helps.

I assume you need to apt install v4l-utils as well.

Okay. Now type v4l2-ctl --help-streaming and see if you can find anything for flipping the video.

Try v4l2-ctl --set-ctrl vertical_flip=1 in the terminal, then test the camera.

Code: Select all

You need to use both of those.

Well, does v4l2-ctl --help not give you any clues? Or man v4l2-ctl?
