Mini Pro screen from computer reversed

Panasonic camcorder at 1080p into HDMI input 1. PC laptop into HDMI input 2. Mini Pro into a desktop PC. Desktop PC into Zoom. The PC screen comes out on Zoom reversed, and that is tough if you are pushing a Powerpoint slide through. I can’t find a solution in the Mini Pro manual, but I’m not so good with manuals. Any ideas other than to ask the students to hold up a mirror? Thanks, experts.

is it reversed for everyone or only for you? Don’t know about Zoom but jitsi reverses your own camera image because it’s more natural for people to look in the mirror than a screen. It’s the proper way around for other participants

Gimzo, I hadn’t thought of that. It appears on my Zoom screen reversed, so I assumed everyone is seeing it reversed. Weird for them to see it one way and me to see it reversed, and that doesn’t happen when I just screen share, but Zoom is more than a little weird.

Yup, it reverses the camera feed for you to have it look natural to you, but it doesn’t reverse screen share because that wouldn’t make any sense.

Yeah, it’s a bit strange. Zoom is making an assumption that when you are using an external video source that it’s a camera that is pointed at you, rather than something else. You can turn off a switch to get it to not flip your local presentation of your output though in Settings>Video.

Nate, I am going to try that. Shows how little I know about Zoom. (In addition to how little I know about the deep workings of the Mini Pro. I need to dig in.) Thanks.

Nate, you solved it. Thanks !
