    Default webcam is shown reversed in msn ???

    this is weird, my webcam works fine everywhere,
    even the audio&video wizard of msn works fine

    but in msn itself chatting with someone, is mirrored. any text i try to show to the cam is shown reversed.

    i don't get it.

    its an ms lifecam vx-5000
    on vista fam 32bits
    msn 2009 v14.0.8089.726

    weirder yet, is i had the lifecam driver v3.0 installed. i just removed it 10mins ago, and it still works in msn but still reversed.

    If you click on Tools then Audio and Video set up you can change the webcam settings there is an option to mirror even upside down...tick that and it should sort prob out...

    Peace....Newy

    hi, ty for replying so quickly.

    i don't see the any setting to reverse this on the audio video wizard on msn.

    its just my usual webcam settings. zoom , color balance, etc.

    but no mirror or inverse or reverse checkbox or button.

    maybe a registry setting?

    but plz understand that this problem ONLY occurs on wlm, not websites that use cam not other IMs (yahoo's works fine) JUST wlm.

    In Windows Live Mesenger camera settings you should get this window.



    On the bottom left from the drop down list choose your cam and not "default" and apply.

    Untick Mirror My Image on the right side of the window and close.

    hi ty for a quick reply. mine doesn't have this setting.

    i'm using the very latest wlm 2009 v14.0.8089.726
    i can't find a camera setting in any menu, except the audio video wizard. here's the screenshot. i have no other way of changing this. even the lifecam driver doesn't show anything else.

    As riteshtechie mentioned above, it's really strange, I have just installed the latest wlm and the mirror option is no longer there as it was in previous versions, so it's probably correct to assume the problem lies within the live cam settings and has nothing to do with wlm. Sorry I don't use a live cam so I can't get into the settings to delve deeper.

    there is no more deeper setting, this is all there is i think.

    the lifecam software itself only allows to take snapshots and videos and overlay cute stencils on the camera.

    if anyone has contact at microsoft tell em to bring it back plz.
