    Maybe it looks flipped on your screen, so it is easier for you to center
    it and so on, but it look OK on the remote computers??? That would be
    cool, since most people I have seen tend to move the wrong way when they
    realize they are at the edge of a screen, that is they go even further
    towards the edge, till they realize the image is "flipped"

    Now if the "flipped" image is flipped again, it seems "straight"

    Better stop now, this is getting confuzing :)

    For yourself or remote clients?

    It's common for video conference software to present a mirror image
    when viewing yourself. People are generally more comfortable when it
    acts as if they're looking into a mirror.

    If you can test it out with a video connection to another computer,
    try holding up some writing and see if the other person sees it
    correctly or mirrored.

    I just had a chace to try this out for myself at the local Apple
    store.

    The image is mirrored when you view yourself, but correct when you
    view somebody else. Which is the behavior I typically see from
    videoconference systems from all vendors. (The Polycom ViewStations
    that I use at work do the same thing. It even inverts the camera
    motion controls when you view yourself in order to keep everything
    consistent.)
