Mirror effect in Skype?

Looks like my 2nd webcam feed is horizontally flipped, left is showing as right and right is showing as left.  My 1st camera looks like a normal mirrored orientation, but my 2nd camera seems to be flipped backwards.  Is there a way to horizontally flip the video image of my 2nd camera feed in the Skype options? 

Thanks!

Please, be aware that the default orientation of the front camera in Skype is mirrored. You will see your image as in a mirror, while your contacts will see the correct (not mirrored) image. If the othr webcam is the rear camera, then it's default orientation is not mirrored. Both you and the person you are skyping with will see the correct not mirrored image.

 

Changing camera orientation from Skype settings is only available with Skype for Desktop application. This feature is not available with Skype for Windows 10 App.

 

What exactly is the version number of your Skype?

Oh, thanks, good to know... I'll have to experiment a bit more to see if my student is seeing a mirrored image or not.  I am using Skype version 8.34.0.78 on a 2017 Macbook Pro.  

Thanks for your help!  :)
