rotating camera image



I have Microsoft LifeCam Show web camera, which has very weird design and because of that I cant have it on top of my monitor rotated correctly (cable sticks from the bottom instead of the rear). I managed though to stick it on top of the monitor rotated around so that the cable comes from top and doesnt cover my screen, but unfortunately I cant rotate the picture for 180 degrees in cam settings (so that it could be displayed correctly) because it doesnt support rotating (Microsoft hasnt built that feature into its drivers). I was hoping that something similar would be possible using skype setting, but I cant find it. Could anyone help me, please?

Re: rotating camera image

Try ManyCam, a free utility available from   It should let you rotate your video to right-side up.


Or get a new webcam that will mount correctly on your monitor.
