    Question How to Mirror a Movie?
    My school Macbook's webcam records text backwards. (It always has, so I assume this is normal) In the last few videos that I have made, this is kinda annoying. So I'm curious can I mirror the movie so the text looks the way it should? Maybe using Photobooth itself, QuickTime, iMovie, etc?

    -Thanks

    It's not normal huh? Well that's weird. I wonder why it does that then. I read it records backwards to simulate looking into a mirror? Anyway, thanks.

    Sorry, I was completely wrong in stating that "mirror" behaviour wasn't normal. Of course it is.

    Long ago, I set up a program called EyeGlasses to "correct" that issue and forgot that I had done that. DOH!

    What I said about iMovie is still correct, however, so at least there's that. Sorry for any confusion caused.

    Don't worry about it. Unfortunately the school has it so no new software can be installed on the computer, but I looked up mirroring in iMovie and it seems simple enough. Thanks for the help.
