My USB webcam is precariously mounted on the desk I'm using. The clamp damages my monitor; Better lighting etc. etc.
Works like a charm but all that is needed is to vertically flip the picture for use in Skype, G+ Hangouts etc.
I am at a loss as to how this is accomplished in Ubuntu 11.10.
Closest I have come is a thread mentioning omitted effects from cheese.
I can't find anything else on this.
