Dear Jitsi users,
Even this translation is not perfect, I hope you understand the problem and
taken steps. The problem is horizontally flipped image in webcam using
Jitsi Meet https://meet.jit.si/ Sometimes there is also vertically flipped
image - so also this is mentioned and included to have solution.
Short story is that I would like to broadcast using Jitsi Meet and record
screen at the same time but webcam picture is flipped horisontally. Tried
V4L environment variables, libraries, v4l2ucp but nothing did not help for
browsers. Tested also Chromium, Google Chrome, Opera, Firefox - all with
same problem. Also some cases in broadcasting screen is image flipped but
from internet participants are seeing not flipped and vice versa. Quite
This means that presenter's slideshow text is flipped horisontally and
cannot be read. As far as I remember, e.g. Bambuser did not have such
issue. But they still have Adobe Flash based broadcaster, which is quite
problematic. Also connectivity will be lost and new record started.
Tested even not only in Linux (Ubuntu, Mageia, Linux Mint, Arch Linux) but
also in MS Windows 8 and Android with different browsers and different
webcams. Same problem with several different computers and webcams. So it
seems to be quite wide and well known problem. All tests were using Jitsi
Here I would propose to add clear tool to select audio and video input
device regardless of browser into settings. It seems that only Google
browser can do that properly currently. If I am wrong - please correct me
and explain how can it be done with other browsers.
Also I would propose to add flip image horisontally, vertically or both -
also into settings.
Certainly - recording feature would be appreciated, e.g. locally or to own
network storage (also cloud storages). It would be good to have
connectivity with them.
But yes - as I have tried environment variables, V4L tricks - nothing did
not help - what could be the solution?
