Upside down webcam video in tent mode when in Skype. Is it Skype app problem or Yoga's?

Hi there,

 

I have a problem with Skype app in Windows 8. When I use the Yoga in tent mode, my webcam video in Skype is upside down. I have checked the Windows' camera app and in tent mode the video is OK. But when I go to Skype, Skype does not rotate the video. This is while I have seen in Yoga's advertisement that people use the tent mode to do Skype calls. It seems to me more of a Skype problem. Does anyone have a suggestion how to resolve this?

 

By the way, Yoga is really a great product. Thanks Lenovo!

Lenovo Premium Tech Support helped me solve this problem! I wasn't even seeing the options talked about in other suggested solutions.

 

We may not all have the same pre-installed software, so let me be clear about my system: It's a Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 13 8/256 purchased straight from Lenovo in January 2013. I am running the latest version of Skype for Desktop as of September 2013 so that I can make a simultaneous-multiple-video call using my Skype Premium account.

 

The pre-installed software that I have that can control which way the camera is recording is YouCam. In Skype for Desktop, go to Tools, Options, Video Settings. Choose "CyberLink Webcam Splitter" from the "Select webcam" dropdown. The YouCam program should start when you do this. Click on the settings gear icon at the top of the YouCam window. Check "Click Horizontally" and "Flip vertically" BOTH. Click OK in YouCam and go back to Skype. You should now appear right-side up (though not mirrored, so you will look as others see you, not as you see yourself in a mirror). Click save and make your video call.

 

With that webcam software selected, YouCam will start any time you make a Skype video call, and you can change the camera settings as necessary. Also, YouCam must be running while you are Skyping for this to work, so don't close it.
