Sometimes with webcams and phones your camera will appear flipped. Let’s take a look at how you can quickly fix it in Streamlabs and OBS.

How To Flip Your Camera In Streamlabs OBS

Which Way Is The Correct Way To Display My Camera?

This really is a personal preference. If you feel more comfortable looking at yourself in a mirrored view on screen then I would recommend going with that option. However most streamers use the ‘unflipped’ version as this feels more natural to the viewers.

Another consideration to take into account is if you have any posters or writing in your backdrop or even on your t-shirt this will also be mirrored and won’t be easily read by your viewers. If that’s the case definitely go with the ‘unflipped’ option.
